+ new symbols %old-name% and %new-name% for event [on macro rename]

Thank you very much for this Rejetto.  ;)

Finally i accomplished my goal by invoking an external batch script.

hfs.events:
Code: [Select]

[+on macro rename]
{.exec|cmd.exe /K rename_preview.cmd "%old-name%" "%new-name%".}


Batch script:

Code: [Select]

@echo off

set oldname=%~nx1.flv

set newname=%~nx2.flv

%~d1

cd %~p1

cd [previews]

ren "%oldname%" "%newname%"

I reported here cause it may help other users with similar needs as mine.

why are you rename the file by an external script when the macro rename does this job perfectly?

mars is right. why don't you use {.rename.} ?

Well, you know my tree structure is made so each folder has its [previews] subfolder. %old-name% and %new-name% store the entire path of the file renamed, so i needed to insert \[previews]\ between the path and the file name, eg:

%old-name% is D:\archive\video\video1.avi

but i need D:\archive\video\[previews]\  and , in that folder, video1.avi.flv.

So i think if i used macro .rename , i had to concatenate it with another macro (maybe .substring?) to get the goal.

you have to  use %item-folder%[preview]/%item-name%

Well, take for instance my case: i use HFS as a server for large video file. Anytime a new file is added, a light flash video preview is created. Without this event, it would be complex to implement autorenaming of previews (eg. you will need another software, like a folder watchdog).

Remote renaming of a file can be considered an administrative-level action, so another use of this event can be to notify in some way the admin that that kind of action has been performed,and by who.

mmmm, i'm not sure. Once event is invoked, %item-name% already contains the new name, but i need the old name. But %old-name% contains the entire path. So i solved in that other way.  ;D

there are two macro  filepath and filename
usage : {.filepath|%item-url%.}   {.filename|%item-url%.}


{.filename|%old-name%.} is the solution

Cannot get it to work.

Tried this without success:

{.rename|"{.filepath|%old-name%.}[previews]\{.filename|%old-name%.}.flv"|"{.filename|%new-name%.}.flv".}

Does .filepath store the drive letter also?

in your template

{.rename|%item-resource%|new-name.ext.}


in hfs.events

[on macro rename]
{.rename|{.filepath|%old-name%.}[previews]\{.filename|%old-name%.}|%new-name%.}

when  hfs find a macro rename, if the action rename is done, the he call the event [on macro rename] where
 %old-name% is replaced by %item-resource% and %new-name% by new-name.ext                           

the form of first param of macro rename must be a windows path as c:\........\file.ext , for the second param only the name and the ext are necessary

Didn' touch anything in template. Rename function by French can can is working, so i leave it untouched.

Uhm, but in this case the correct string would be:

{.rename|{.filepath|%item-resource%.}[previews]\{.filename|%item-resource%.}|%new-name%.}

In addition, don't forget that rename action must be done from oldname.ext.flv to newname.ext.flv  ;D

if you still need a solution, then
1. tell me the content of %old-name% and %new-name%
2. tell me exactly what renaming you need to perform, with full paths

otherwise ignore this post :P

when he use the macro rename normaly  by {rename|my file|newname.} ,
he will to do a second action as {rename|...[previous]\%old-name%.flv|%new-name%.flv.} in the event [on macro rename]

But I have just realized, that he can use both macro in the main tpl without the help of events

.......
{rename|my file|newname.}
{rename|...[previous]\my file.flv|newname.flv.}

It is so simpler than I blame me for not having thought of it before ;)

it needs events because the rename is made in a script he can't or doesn't want to control
