Portableapps Menu Everything Search Integration

Can the portableapps menu use this search instead of the lousy pathically poor windows attempt?

Thanks

Changing Search button

I don't know if it can be done with the default PA menu, but it can be done using PortableAppsMenuMod34 PaTChed for PAP 1.5.

  • Install the patch and open up the theme.ini located in the PortableApps.com/Data/Theme/default directory.
  • Hide the original search button by changing the [sbtnSearch] Visible property to 0.
[sbtnSearch]
Height=30
Width=120
Left=269
Top=341
Visible=0
Font=Tahoma
ColorR=255
ColorG=2f5
ColorB=255
Bold=1
Italic=0
Underline=0
StrikeOut=0
  • Add a new button to the [CustomButtons] section.
  • [CustomButtons]
    0=Search
    
  • Add a new button section titled Search and a PathToApp property to EverythingPortable.exe.
  • [Search]
    Height=30
    Width=120
    Left=269
    Top=341
    Visible=1
    Font=Tahoma
    ColorR=255
    ColorG=255
    ColorB=255
    Bold=1
    Italic=0
    Underline=0
    StrikeOut=0
    PathToApp={THEME}\..\..\..\..\EverythingPortable\EverythingPortable.exe
    
  • Make sure the Left and Top properties are the same in the [sbtnSearch] and [Search] sections are the same.
  • I hope that helps.

    I also use this same method to replace the eject button with EjectUSB.

    "Suite" button above

    By clicking the Suite button above.

    You mean you want 1.5.2 to install R34 right? 1.5.2 is the currently-offered platform version that comes with the Suite (or on its own from the same link).

    Note that if you already have R34 patched from PAM 1.1, you already have R34. I thought 1.5.2 patched with R34 was a new thing, but John says it is not. Seems like it would be, but he says the 1.5.2 R34 and the 1.1 R34 both patch the different menus to the same R34.

    Hi Voltran43, Thanks for

    Hi Voltran43,

    Thanks for that. After a bit more modding I have replaced Explore and Search Options with Freecommander and Everything whose folders have been placed in folder:-

    D:\test2\PortableApps\PortableApps.com\Data\Theme

    sbtnExplore and sbtnSearch visbility have been set to 0

    I have made the buttons start st a higher number in case anyone wants to copy into another Theme to avoid conflict with other buttons. (Bear in mind theme size when doing this!)

    [CustomButtons]
    0=BTN_Eject
    7=Search
    8=Explorer

    [BTN_Eject]
    Height=16
    Width=65
    Left=261
    Top=547
    Font=Tahoma
    Margin=33
    ColorR=255
    ColorG=255
    ColorB=255
    Bold=1
    Italic=0
    Underline=0
    StrikeOut=0
    Caption=
    OnCLick=CustomImageExitClick
    PathToApp={THEME}/../EjectScript.exe

    [Search]
    Height=30
    Width=120
    Left=269
    Top=341

    Underline=0
    StrikeOut=0
    PathToApp={THEME}/../Everything/Everything.exe

    [Explorer]
    Height=30
    Width=120
    Left=269
    Top=204
    Visible=1
    Margin=33

    Bold=1
    Italic=0
    Underline=0
    StrikeOut=0
    PathToApp={THEME}/../FreeCommanderPortable/FreeCommanderPortable.exe

    I have another question whch you may be able to help me on. How can i make folders such as Documents and Music use Freecommander rather than Windows Explorer. I prefer to avoid fixed paths in the themes.ini file as this would lose the ability to change folder names destinations i believe.

    Thanks again

    Free Commander

    I've actually done something very similar with Music, Documents, etc. where they open with windows Explorer with the folder pane expanded.

    What I did is created *.bat files and then converted them to *.exe files using Bat To Exe Converter and then pointed the theme.ini parameter to the *.exe file.

    For example:

    Music.bat

    @Echo off
    START "" Explorer /e, \Documents\Music
    • Convert Music.bat to Music.exe using Bat_To_Exe.exe.
    • Place Music.exe into a newly created Default\Commands directory.
    • Change the PathToApp parameter to {THEME}\Commands\Music.exe under a newly created [Music] button.
    • Change the Visibility parameter under the [sbtnMusic] to 0
    [sbtnMusic]
    Height=28
    Width=120
    Left=269
    Top=112
    Visible=0
    Font=Tahoma
    ColorR=255
    ColorG=255
    ColorB=255
    Bold=1
    Italic=0
    Underline=0
    StrikeOut=0
    
    [CustomButtons]
    0=Music
    
    [Music]
    Height=28
    Width=120
    Left=269
    Top=112
    Visible=1
    Font=Tahoma
    ColorR=255
    ColorG=255
    ColorB=255
    Bold=1
    Italic=0
    Underline=0
    StrikeOut=0
    PathToApp={THEME}\Commands\music.exe
    

    To use the free commander, I'd change the Music.bat:

    From:

    @Echo off
    START "" Explorer /e, \Documents\Music

    To:

    @Echo off
    START "" \PortableApps\FreeCommanderPortable\FreeCommanderPortable.exe \Documents\Music

    Oh, and just a tip, make sure you have the Invisible application setting checked under Visibility in Bat_To_Exe.exe when converting the bat file.

    I also don't know if you can bypass the entire converting to exe step and just use the bat file. Let me know how it works!

    I got it to work with the bat

    I got it to work with the bat file - no need for an exe.

    videos.bat

    @Echo off
    START "" ..\Documents\videos

    This was added to theme.ini
    [Video]
    Height=30
    Width=120
    Left=269
    Top=172
    Visible=1
    Margin=33
    Font=Tahoma
    ColorR=255
    ColorG=255
    ColorB=255
    Bold=1
    Italic=0
    Underline=0
    StrikeOut=0
    PathToApp={THEME}/../videos.bat

    For some reason i can not get it to switch with freecomander in the instruction line. However since this sits as a partition installation, I have replaced windows explorer wih freecommander in the register.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Eject and Search

    You can use it to replace both the eject and search. However, if you want Everything to search things on your USB Flash drive, you'll need to format the USB flash drive as NTFS.

    NOTE: Formating your USB in NTFS format will erase all current data on the drive and will not work in Linux or Mac OS.
