Built a scanner? Started to build a scanner? Record your progress here. Doesn't need to be a whole scanner - triggers and other parts are fine. Commercial scanners are fine too.

i want that when opening(double clicking) picture ‘0201’ in the ‘Shortcutoriginal’ folder, Autohotkey opens the ‘0201’ in the ‘Original’ folder instead

shortcutfolder has cropped images from original folder.add the ones you want
https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=36133

Code: Select all

#SingleInstance Force

OriginalFolder = D:\ebookscanner\17-7-21\teckthought\experiment\original
;ShortcutFolder = D:\ebookscanner\17-7-21\teckthought\experiment\shortcutsoriginal	; This line is obsolete.

#IfWinActive, shortcutsoriginal ahk_exe Explorer.exe

^0::	; Press Ctrl + 0 to open the original picture.
	SEND, ^c	; Copy the picture's filepath.
	
	StringGetPos, FirstBackSlashPos, Clipboard, \, R

	StringRight, FileName, Clipboard, % StrLen(Clipboard) - FirstBackSlashPos
	
	Run, % OriginalFolder . FileName
Return

#IfWinActive

Lbutton::
if ("Lbutton" == A_PriorHotkey && A_TimeSincePriorHotkey < 500) {
msgbox, rest of code goes here
} 
else
 Click
Return
