[SOLVED]Open the project directory in OS
« on: March 21, 2023, 03:13:40 am »
I feel it will be very convenience if one can open the project directory in OS by click or hot key in Lazarus IDE.
In fact, every time I install a new version of Lazarus, I do config this function as a external tool.
Although there is no difficulty to config external tools, I prefer the IDE has this function embeded.

Best wishes to all
 :)

I have a Icon on my desktop to start one of my fpc/Lazarus installations. I need no more on Linux, RasPian and Windows. And if you need such a function, Lazarus is OpenSource and you have the full code, you can write such a tool by yourself. So you have your preferred function.

Right click the panel in the statusbar(the one with file path). See attached image for more details.

Yes, it's just what I need. I never know this function although I have used lazarus for many years. :o

Yes, that works with any editor file.
There is a similar "Open Folder..." popup menu item in the "Files" node of Project inspector. It opens the current project's root directory. This may be only in the development version of Lazarus, not sure.
Mostly Lazarus trunk and FPC 3.2 on Manjaro Linux 64-bit.

I checked 2.2.6. It's present there. With the caveat that it only opens a folder if the project has actually been saved.

I fixed it in 00e9146b43. Now the menu item shows only for saved projects.
