Thanks for the great work. =D>

I'm interested in making my own little extension, but I am trying to figure out what all is involved with making one compatible with the extension pack. It's really simple so I just copied a set of reg, txt and htm files that should have been similar to what I wanted it to do; edited them and renamed them and used the import feature. Needless to say it didn't work or I wouldn't be bugging you. :P

The option is in the right click menu sometimes which is even stranger, but it doesn't work even when it is there.

It's a rip off of the Live Maps accelerator idea in IE8 where you highlight an address and then would right click and 'get directions' from your home address. Each htm file would be customized with your address.

HTM file:

Code: Select all

<script Language=VBScript>
	Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
	lcSelection = external.menuArguments.document.selection.createRange().text
	objShell.Run("http://maps.yahoo.com/map?q1=YOUR%20ADDRESS%20HERE&q2=" & Replace(lcSelection, " ", "+"))
</script>
reg file:

Code: Select all

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Get Directions]
"Contexts"=dword:00000014
@="C:\\Program Files\\AB Extension Pack\\Extensions\\Lookup\\luDirections.htm"

txt file:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Dictionary Lookup]
@="[PATH]Extensions\\Lookup\\luDictionary.htm"
"Contexts"=dword:00000014

Any hints or tips?

The "sometimes" is caused by;

Code: Select all

"Contexts"=dword:00000014

What exactly do you mean by "doesn't work even when it is there", do you mean it doesn't load the site? If so, check you've got scripting installed and enabled on the system, and have it enabled in the browser.

Once again it mysteriously started working...I have no idea why I have so many issues with these extensions not doing anything and then after enabling and disabling it a few times it works.

It works great by the way. :mrgreen:

Cool. I was just showing my son (who is much better at scripts and stuff) and he was pretty impressed.

I'll be watching for the update and thanks again for such a great utility!

Just a heads up about the new add-ons that you put in there. I got an error where I guess the pop up window for the address comes up. I don't remember what it was (sorry), but I thought that I'd at least let you know that I did try it and that there was a problem. I'm pretty sure that it's a security setting or something because the send to notepad one doesn't work either. It asks if I am sure about sending information to another zone and no matter if I click yes or no it opens notepad and does nothing. I can usually just hit ctrl+P and it will paste so I thought that maybe it was something to do with the script and tried to edit it, but I gave up after a few hours.

I did however make one for e-Bay searches and youtube. I've got the whole lookup thing down to almost a science now and I just wanted to thank you again for the work on AB extensions. It really solidified my longtime use of AB and I can't imagine using another browser.

Oks, thanks for letting me know :)

If you do decide to try it again and can reproduce it, the error message you received would be much appreciated :)

This is what I did before and everything worked fine afterwards.

BTW, I am liking this google map.

I finished installing and picking the add-ons, then I restarted Avant Browser but noticed NO new functions, where do I access all these wonderful extensions...?

Right click a page, or highlight text then right click (extensions are in the context menu)

/edit

You'll also need to ensure they're enabled in Avant itself (Tools > Avant Browser Options > Add-ons)
