I'm experimenting with SeqEdit.exe CLI. I found
/setCurrentDir potentially useful. According to the documentation:
/setCurrentDirinstructs the application to set the current directory to the first directory in the File dialog box directory history list, as shown in the following example:
The current directory is the directory the File dialog box initially displays when you open or save a file. Use this option to instruct the File dialog box to display the directory the File dialog box displayed the last time you ran the application. TestStand sets the current directory after processing the other command-line options.
I have run a couple of tests and it seems that directory history is set to the current directory only if I trigger an error.
I have two bat scripts:
REM "WithoutError.bat" @ECHO OFF START "Teststand" "%TestStandBin%\SeqEdit.exe" /setCurrentDir
REM "WithError.bat" @ECHO OFF START "Teststand" "%TestStandBin%\SeqEdit.exe" /setCurrentDir "C:\A\B"
I run them from
C:\ and from
C:\A\B. Here are the results of my experiments:
C:\>C:\A\B\WithoutError.bat No Error Directory History: C:\Users\micha\Desktop C:\>C:\A\B\WithError.bat Error: Unrecognized command line argument 'C:\A\B' Directory History: C:\ C:\A\B>WithoutError.bat No Error Directory History: C:\Users\micha\Desktop C:\A\B>WithError.bat Error: Unrecognized command line argument 'C:\A\B' Directory History: C:\A\B
As you can see, the directory history is correct only if I have an error.
Is this a bug?
