Introduction

This NetBeans module add a custom action to filesystem nodes to launch an OS explorer pointing the directory referenced by the node. It can be customized specifying an implementation of net.sf.efhnbm.Launcher or a command. By now all Win32 platforms and Linux with GNOME or KDE are automatically supported. It comes with its own update center.

Works with NB 8.0RC1

I've just tested it with NB8.0RC1. Works absolutely fine so I guess it is more a matter of formal verification and putting it into the Plugin Update Center with a "8.0" tag.

For the moment you just need to install it manually.

Great plugin

I depend 100% on this plugin. I use it maybe 50 times per day. It is so important to me that I cannot start using NB 8.0 before this plugin works with NB 8.0.

Works with NB7.4 on Win7

Plugin still works with the latest NB 7.4.
How about update the supported NB versions information?

Does not work on favorites top level items

Steps to reproduce:
- add folder "foo" to favorites
- right-click on "foo" into favorites tab
- choose the "Explore with..." plugin item
- Netbeans show a dialog asking how to open foo.shadow file. Choosing explorer.exe here will lead to explorer.exe endless loop (will create lot of instances)

Note: right clicking on a subfolder (i.e. "foo\bar") works correctly both in Project and in Favorites tab.

NetBeans 7.3.1
Windows 7 x64

Problem with path with spaces

I'm on Linux Mint KDE.
With option module default I get message:
"Can't find a good explorer/prompt for Linux"
When I select command option like this:
dolphin {0} everything works but not for paths which contains spaces.
I tried dolphin "{0}" but no luck

Re: Position in context menu

hey everflux i'm going to check this as soon i have a free moment.

Position in context menu

I love the plugin, thank you! It would be really awesome if the position in the context menu could be configured. For example top or bottom of the list.
(I would prefer it at the bottom, since I am really used to use the first entry for "new")

Works with 7.3 Beta 2, but not with 7.3 RC2

This plugin is a great help. I found it working with 7.3 Betas, but not with 7.3 RCs. Why?

Update Center not removed when plugin uninstalled

Hi,
works well, but there is a little problem :

Plugin installation adds an update center ("EFH Update Center" : http://efhnbm.sourceforge.net/efhnbm_autoupdate_center.xml).

Uninstall the plugin doesn't remove this update center.
It contains a reference to the "Explore from here v0.4.6" plugin, but it is unnecessary since your plugin will be referenced into the "Plugin Portal" update center after validation.
Could you remove the EFH update center ?

Thx.

Mac OS X

Hi. The plugin also works with a real OS ;-). Just add

open {0}

in the command section (and remove the rundll suff).

Works like a charm. Good Work.
