[Action]NodeWebkit - "To execute file"

  • Hello. I've already written to add "copy" and "move file" actions to nodewebkit object. And I just want to know, if it's possible to add action "execute file" to this object (for example open .xls with MS Excel or just execute .exe file)? <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    I can explain, why I need this simple actions. I'm working now with project, which help not to rewrite content in the same file when it used at 2 different computers at the same time. I mean, there are 2 dropbox accounts and folder shared at these 2 different computers. And my programm (created on C2) have to show the list of files placed in shared folder. And when one file (for example .xls) executed at the first computer, my programm detect it and hide this file in the list at the second computer. For more convenience I want to add executing file if the name of the file double-clicked, but in C2 there are no action to execute file. <img src="smileys/smiley19.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    So then I can see only one way to realize this feature. This way is to compile project on CC and to add at runtime file with content, for example:

    [Group]

    link = C:\file.xls

    and execute file that I need (with CC application) when it detect this INI file in the shared folder... <img src="smileys/smiley3.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    Hope, u're understand me <img src="smileys/smiley4.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> <img src="smileys/smiley4.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> <img src="smileys/smiley4.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> Thanks before)
