Custom arguments/parameters for command buttons

I want to execute a single script with different arguments using the command buttons.

Right now it's just possible to specify the script or application to execute and the currently selected or open file is passed as first argument. But it's not possible to pass additional custom arguments.

Would it be possible to implement passing custom arguments to scripts/applications? Maybe even using some placeholders for the currently open folder, file, etc.

Easy to implement.

For placeholders I suggest to use the standard DOS prefix, that is %
So we have:

%current_folder, %current_file etc.

I'm not sure whether we are talking about the same thing. The command is configured in the default.bar file instead of the xnview.ini.

The command currently looks like the this:

Code: Select all

_cmd_=Some title;/path/to/my/script;
How to pass a custom argument to the command to execute together with the currently opened file/folder?
