Letters & Numbers Bar

Post by mragtronx8 » 2021 Mar 27, 17:08

hi,
is it possible to have a bar that contains numbers 0to9 AtoZ, to act as a jumper.
For example i have a folder that contains 500 folders with different name, and i simply wanted to jump directly to a folder starting with letter X. I can simply press "with mouse" the X button "in the bar", and i jump direct to the designated folder.

Please advise.

If the folder is visible in the active pane, typing X will take you to the first sub-folder whose name begins with X.

even this, do you want to see 36 letter buttons on a toolbar?
my recommendation is to write a macro to send a letter to the active view and assign it on a toolbar button. You'd need 36 of these, see the manual for more information for SENDKEY command

hi Nikos,

could you please provide a sample/guide.
Am not that good with scripting.

Thanx for the feedback.

for example create a macro with this content (CUSTOMIZE > MACROS > EDIT MACRO)

Code: Select all

getfocus
sendkey M
then save it as "letter M" and add it to a toolbar. You will find all these steps explained here
www.zabkat.com/blog/menuhack-customize-toolbar.htm

likewise you can create any number of key buttons.
