Opera can't wait for another program to close (as in, no change
system), you will need an external program which can find Opera and post
back the Paste command. Yes, should be possible even with WSH or
There is no need for Opera to monitor other programs.
When you are through editing in the external editor you
will come back to Opera, and if the batfile or script worked
the text box will now contain your edited text, so you only
need to push the send button, or save button, in the web page.
I know I can do this with windows powerpro, but would
prefer a simpler solution.
Like configuring a tool bar button in Opera to take care
of the first half of the process.
copy to clip
start external editor
paste from clip
If we use a text editor with macros it should be possible
to create a macro which handles the second part.
copy to clip
save file to hd, name it date and time.txt
hopefully we are now back in opera again, so we
paste the clip to the text box
If we cannot be sure that we are back in opera
we can let the user do the last step manually, to
paste into the text box, when he finds it.
That is the part I was saying would need to be done manually, or with a
Windows script of some sort.
Opera can do Select all & Copy & Execute program, "youreditor.exe",
"commandline". If your editor has the ability to run a macro from the
command line, or just to paste automatically from the command line, then
you're left with any actual editing and pasting the results back.
