play text file popup - 20/08/03 02:23 PM
I am trying to write a popup that will display a box to select a text file to play from my text directory in mirc, then play the file i select in the channel. I've tried searching for how to write this, but the suggestions other have given did seem to work.

I tried it 3 different way from 3 different suggestions on websites...none of them played my file. Here are the three different popup lines I've tried:

PlayTXT:/play file="Choose a Txt" text\*.txt

Text:/play # $dir="select a txt file"$mircdir $+ *.txt 1000 Commands:/play -c #$dir="select a txt file" $mircdir$+ *.txt 1000

Could someone please show me how to create a popup that will open my C:\program files\mirc\text directory, let me select one of the text files there, and then play it in the channel with a 1 second delay?

Thank you!!

use: $sdir(c:\program files, select a txt file) Re: play text file popup - 20/08/03 02:43 PM Sparta, well.....now I have: Text:/play #$sdir=(c:\program files\mirc\text) $+ *.txt 1000 And I'm feeling more confused that I was before. All this seems to do is let me select a directory...but I can't get to the files in the directory. What have I done wrong? Re: play text file popup - 20/08/03 02:43 PM Code: playfile:.play #$sfile($mircdirtest,Select the file of your choice,Grab me!) 1000  Re: play text file popup - 20/08/03 02:44 PM #sdir? that brings up the directory selection dialog, not the file selection... Re: play text file popup - 20/08/03 02:53 PM locutus - i tried out the code you wrote, and while I can now select a file, when I click "grab it" it won't play. Is there an option in mirc that i might have forgotten to check that is keeping me from playing the text file? I get this message when I try to play them: * /play: unable to open 'C:\Program' Re: play text file popup - 20/08/03 03:00 PM playfile:.play #$+(",$sfile($mircdirtest,Select the file of your choice,Grab me!),") 1000

*sigh* I tried the code you gave me pheonix, and I am still getting the same message as when I tried playing with locutus' code:

* /play: unable to open 'C:\Program'

If it helps any, the exact location of my text fils for mirc is:
C:\Program Files\mIRC\text

I don't understand why these won't play. Is there maybe an option for being able to play files that I have forgotten to select?
