ftp via msie or garbled ftp URL
- Firstly, thanks Jody and all for the fine examples interfacing
NoteTab and WSFTP. I was trying to mimic those concepts, but running
into difficulties with spaces in the directory path on the ftp site.
I think WSFTP didn't like them when given in the line command
interface (but I may be wrong).
For a minute I thought of invoking FTP as DOS line commands, but
decided including an unencoded password in such a routine probably
wasn't a good thing.
Then I thought... why not just use MSIE and cut and paste? Normally
I drag and drop files from my machine to the browser opened to the
ftp URL. I tried cut & paste from one to the other and it worked
fine. The browser knows the login and pwd (it is a secure site) so
the pwd encryption is handled by MSIE.
OK, so I tried it in NoteTab.
Before running this clip, in explorer I highlight a file and hit
; Mr. Phillip Sand Hansel II 2/2/06 with much thanks to Jody Adair.
; give it enough time to load ( WAS 4 OR 4/10th of a second)
;Set delay of approximately 200 milliseconds between each keystroke
; MSIE Edit menu, Paste
^!Keyboard ALT+E P
; ^!Keyboard ALT+E P &400 # ^*.zip#
It opens the browser but garbles the URL.
Got any guesses as to why it wants to do that? I feel like I am real
close to having a workable solution, but it is giving me unexpected
Also, know of any way to specify that you want a new browser
instance and not changing the contents of a currently opened browser
window? Is there a TARGET=NEW type parameter for ^!URL?
What I am working on is being able to edit a file, add comments, zip
it, and ftp it with as few clicks as possible. I've got 2/3rds of it
Thanks in advance,
Mr. Phillip Sand Hansel II
