Very nice! I plugged in the new code and it's much more like what I'm going for. Thank you so much!

I am starting to understand the requirement (about right click).

If I get it right what you need is a shell extension (and not a contextual menu entry).

If this is correct, I doubt you can have it. :(

Do the following:

  1. get http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html
  2. check which shell extensions you have on your system
  3. post info about one that is present on your right click menu (where/when you would like to see this script entry)

Before the above, try actually reading the initially given:

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/add-any-application-to-the-desktop-right-click-menu-in-vista/

AND test it

I've added a couple more conditions to the function to ensure none of the fields are empty and cause an error. Is this the best way to accomplish it?

   If Len(In1.value) > 0 Then
If Len(In3.value) > 0 Then
If Len(In2.value) = 5 Then
Dim A :A=MsgBox("Is this correct?" & vbCrlf & _
"TextBox 1 Information : " & In1.value & vbCrlf & _
"TextBox 2 Information : " & In2.value & vbCrlf & _
"TextBox 3 Information : " & In3.value & vbCrlf & vbCrlf & _
"Click OK to continue," & vbCrlf & "No to start over, or" & vbCrlf & _
"Cancel to exit",4131)
If A = 6 Then
alert("Script Place Holder For Yes Actions")
ElseIf A = 7 Then
In1.value="" :In2.value="" :In3.value="" :
ElseIf A = 2 Then
window.close()
End If
Else
alert("Error: Please enter the last 5 digits of invoice number: " & In2.value)
End If
Else
alert("Error: Please enter a job type (ie.: BC, Brochure, Flyer, etc.):")
End If
Else
alert("Error: Please enter a client name:")
End If

What I use to make sure none of the textboxes have value, plus an additional check on

the Invoice Number, for a length of 5 digits.


ElseIf Len(In1.value) >= 1 And Len(In2.value) >= 1 And Len(In3.value) >= 1 Then
If Len(In2.value) = 5 Then

Nice try at coding, but you can use And or Or in If statements

Have you tried the updated HTA

Thanks for the tip. Yes, I did try your updated HTA. That's what I meant by "Nice improvement!"

So here's what I've got so far, and it seems to work on my local drive. I'm going to update the RtPath to a mapped network share and test it a bit further. Please have a look and tell me what kinds of horrible mistakes I've made.

I've added a bit of code that opens Explorer to the job folder:

Const NORMAL_WINDOW = 1
Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
objShell.ShellExecute "explorer.exe", JPath, , , NORMAL_WINDOW

I've placed that just before JobBuilder's "End Function." How do I get the app to automatically close afterward?

To clarify: I would like the first input window to vanish as the second window pops up, as it is no longer needed.

Nevermind. I added "window.close" at the end of the bit that invokes Windows Explorer and it closes everything perfectly.

Another way of opening Explorer.exe

CreateObject("Wscript.Shell").Run("explorer.exe D:\"),1,False 

Perhaps change this area


End If

End Function
</SCRIPT>

To this


End If
CreateObject("Wscript.Shell").Run("explorer.exe D:\"),1,False
window.close
End Function
</SCRIPT>

The above code will open Explorer without waiting for the Explorer to be closed,

it will then close the HTA. So you should be left with the Explorer window open.
