re: error

Hi,

Did you try v1.32 ? You need to click " + show all" (below v1.21 and v1.24)

I think this error was fixed already in all versions after v1.26...

To make sure I've just added extra check for all undefined in findString  ->  v1.33 is the latest now.

Please try it and let me know if it works now.

Cheers,
Pixamoon

subfolders

oki, cool, good it works now :)

Do you mean tooltips from macroscripts ? those are actually used as names for Installed UserScripts now. But not all .ms scripts have them inside so than script reads just macroscript name.
Also I'm not sure if there is a way to add tooltips to max menus, I'll take a look on dotNet menus. Thanks :)

Best,

Subfolders working now!

Thanks!

Works fine now.
For me, it works fast enough, no lag here. And I have quite some folders and subfolders.
For me the extra folder searches are not an issue, since mine are in one place.
But maybe for studio's, it might come in handy to customize it more.

Would it be easy and efficient to do, to have the ability to add a small description as a tooltip to the items? Only if this doesn't slow it down.

Cheers,
Tim

subfolders

Hi Tim,

It should be fixed now. Let me know how it works for you, Is it fast enough ?

I also wonder if I should add UserScripts folder or Scripts folder form main Max folder to search in there? Or other system folders ?

Best,
Pixamoon

re error

Thanks for info,
I've changed a lot in core of script to do subfolders. It may need more tests etc.

I'll fix it today :)

Error

Hi Pixamoon,

I upgraded from 1.21 to 1.23 but when running the script, I get the following Error:

-- Compile error: control already defined: _me111_36_1
-- In line: menuItem _me111_36_1 "

Hope this makes sense and thanks for the update.

Cheers,
Tim
