Solved [TC 10 b4] Inconsistent support for filename with cm_List* commands

Post by *petermad »

Currently cm_List and cm_ListInternalOnly supports a filename (with full path) on the commandline.

It seems logical that this should also be supported for cm_ListOnly

It could also be nice if the path of the current panel could be used if filename was indicated without path.

I will add it. It's not there because with one parameter cm_List and cm_ListOnly would do exactly the same thing.

history.txt wrote:07.04.21 Fixed: CM_LISTONLY now accepts a file name as parameter just like CM_LIST (32/64)
Confirmed fixed in TC 10 b5 :-)

But, there is another peculiar behaviour with cm_List, cm_ListOnly and cm_ListeInternalOnly - if I (in a button) only use the file name without path, then the command only works (=opening the file if it exists in the source file panel) every second time it is executed - with full path for the filename, there is no such problem

Sorry, only full path and environment variables are supported.

Can you explain why it works every second time without the full path?

It depends on what the current directory is when you launch the command. Total Commander does not set the current directory before each command, only before things like launching other programs. So it's just by chance that the current directory is the same as in the active panel.
