Does the Filelist Creator have Command Line Options?

Question by Guest | 2019-02-28 at 12:18

The FilelistCreator recognizes a passed folder name as a command line option.

Are there other command line options?

Not yet.

UPDATE 2023: With the new CL Version of the FilelistCreator it is now possible to control the FilelistCreator via command line options. For example like this:

FilelistCreator.exe -cl C:\Folder cols=name,size save=C:\List.xlsx

...in order to create a list of all files from the folder "C:\Folder" with the columns  "Name" and "Size" and save it as "C:\List.xlsx". I present all other parameters and functions of the CL version in the tutorial “Script Control of the Filelist Creator”.

OLD ANSWER from 2019: However, I have already thought about creating a corresponding version. You could possibly pass a settings file as well as paths to files and/or folders and the program would then create the file list from this.

What parameters did you have in mind? Defining a separate parameter for each of the many options would be a bit complicated and unwieldy.

I thought of two options: specifying a settings file and specifying the folder whose files should be listed.

And that too is also possible now. To provide the settings via settings files, you can simply pass the settings file to the program:

FilelistCreator.exe -cl C:\dir C:\set.fls save=list.csv

With this call, a list of the files from the folder "C:\dir" is created according to the settings from the settings file "C:\set.fls" and saved as "list.csv".
