How to determine iMacros folder locations from Javascript

Post by Tom, Tech Support » Fri Jun 07, 2013 12:32 pm

Have you ever wanted to be able to reference the various iMacros folders from your script?

You can add the following function to your Javascript code to easily retrieve these folder locations:

Code: Select all

function getiMacrosFolder(folderName)
{
	var pname;
	switch (folderName)
	{
		case "Macros" :
			pname = "defsavepath";
			break;
		case "DataSources" :
			pname = "defdatapath";
			break;
		case "Downloads" :
			pname = "defdownpath";
			break;
		case "Logs" :
			pname = "deflogpath";
			break;
		default :
			throw folderName + " is not a valid iMacros folder name";
			break;
	}
	return imns.Pref.getFilePref(pname).path;
}
Just pass in the name of the folder to retrieve the full path, for example:

Code: Select all

var downloadFolder = getiMacrosFolder("Downloads");
