TotalCMD Target=Source feature in FAR

Post by azatoth »

Hi,

I like to ask you how can I replicate Total Commander's Target=Source feature in FAR?
What is does:
- if I press Ctrl+Right in the left panel it sets (or sends) the same path as in the left panel
- if I press Ctrl+Left in the right panel it sets (or sends) the same path as in the right panel

Or this feature is already exists in FAR?

Anyway I'm changing from TotalCMD to FAR and I like it!

Thanks in advance:
Aza

Look for “Same folder” in the settings dialog of the FAR Commands standard plugin.
Although a more precise name would be “Same item” — you can adjust it in its LNG file.

macros like this one (far3 only)

Code: Select all

Macro {
  area="Shell"; key="CtrlShiftBackSlash"; description="Current Folder --> Passive Panel";
  action = function()
    if APanel.Folder then
      local p = panel.GetPanelDirectory(nil, 1)
      local n = p.Name
      local t = #n > 0 and n:sub(-1) or ''
      local s = ''
      if #t > 0 and t ~= '/' and t ~= '\\' then
        s = n:sub(1,1) == '/' and '/' or '\\'
      end
      p.Name = p.Name .. s .. APanel.Current
      panel.SetPanelDirectory(nil, 0, p)
    end
  end;
}

Some documentation you can find in %FARHOME%\Encyclopedia\... or here
But unfortunatelly somewhere it is not full and not up to date and mostly in russian.

Macro can be even simpler:

Code: Select all

local ACTIVE,PASSIVE = 1,0
Macro {
  description="Current Folder --> Passive Panel";
  area="Shell"; key="CtrlAltShiftBackSlash"; flags="NoFiles";
  action=function()
    local dir = panel.GetPanelDirectory(nil,ACTIVE)
    panel.SetPanelDirectory(nil,PASSIVE,dir)
    dir.Name=APanel.Current
    panel.SetPanelDirectory(nil,PASSIVE,dir)
  end;
}

And the way without macro: if left panel is active with dir C:\Windows\Temp and you want to open the same dir in the right panel - simply press "Alt+F2 C".

this plugin does not make the same action as does CTRL+left or CTRL+right in Total commander. This just sets it to the same directory, but not to the actual directory under the 'cursor'.

I would like to open the directory (same action as ENTER key), but to the other panel. Is it possible? THanks.

You can use macros.
