Path Tools module uploaded

I have uploaded the Module Info Task module for Netbeans 5.5 and 6.0 to my NetBeans update center described here.

The Path Tools module installs the following actions:

Path Tools Actions

Copy Paths - Copy the full paths of the files/folder of selected node to the clipboard.  This also included the System File System nodes. Each file path is on a line. The lines are separated using the value specified by system property line.separator. For Project nodes the full path of the project directory is copied.

Explore - Launch the OS File Explorer (such as Windows Explorer or Finder or Koquerer or Nautilus) with the path of the file or folder of selected node selected in it. For Project nodes the project directory is selected. The Windows Explorer is used on MS Windows. Finder is used on MacOS. The Nautilus or Konquerer is used on Linux. The FileMgr is used on Solaris.

Shell On Path: Launch the OS shell (such as Command Prompt orXterm or Terminal) with the current directory set to path of the folder or parent path of the file of selected node. For Project nodes the project directory is used. The Command Prompt is used on MS Windows. Terminal.app  is used on MacOS (not implemented yet). The Xterm is used on Linux and Solaris (not implemented yet).

Edit - Launch the editor (such as Notepad or Edit or TextPad) with the path of the file or folder of selected node selected in it. For Project nodes the project directory is selected. The Notepad is used on MS Windows.

The commands to launch external programs can be configured using Tools:Options:Miscellaneous:Path Tools panel.

Hi sandip, This is really a great tool, will this eventually replace 'Explore with WinXP' in Netbeans 6.0? I do have an idea for an enhancement. How about if you press Strg-C in the project/file..-view and Strg-V in the editor and that will actually do the Copy-Path trick?

That is what the Copy Path action does - minsu the key binding. You can customize the keybinding using Tools:Options:Keymap.

Oh yeah, I knew that it does copy the path, but what i meant it would be just natural if you'd add the the keybinding by default :)

I see.

BTW Thomas, what do you mean by Strg-C? What is Strg?

The keybindings are starting to get kind of dense. That is why I did not do it.

Hmmm, german keyboard :) Strg = Ctrl :) I just meant the standard copy and paste shortcuts. Have a great day!

Ctrl+V to paste in editor already works. Ctrl+c in Project/File view is meant for copying the node itself. In any case I do get the point of having some out-of-the-box key binding.

Hi, Your blog has good information. If its not asking too much can I suggest you to change the background color to something else other than black. Thanks Manju

Thanks for your comment.

Can you please explain what issue you have with black background color? Is your browser not showing it correctly?
