Action Arguments

Question

It would be nice to be able to add arguments to an action when a file is executed, much like a task in Windows.

I use plink to enable samba server on my server in the event of a power outage.  I'd like to run that command during the process to make sure it's up and running by the time the feature starts.  I didn't see any way to pass arguments from actions.  It just had an option for the program file.

The arguments are on the line below your program file, like in the Google Chrome example.

I'm not familiar with the Chrome example.  Can you post a link to it?

I'll have to double check when I get home.  I don't see that available on the actions module, but I do see it in the commands module.  I'm sure I'm missing something, but I recall the actions module being pretty sparse.  If all else fails, I'll snap a screenshot of what I'm seeing.  Maybe something is broken on my install.

Absolutely.

Okay, I think I figured out what I'm supposed to do.  I've created a file and put my command, plus an argument line under it.  What is the file name extension supposed to be for action files, or does it not matter?  When I tell it to test, it doesn't seem to do anything.  Is that good or bad?

The extension should be .cvaction for action files. The syntax should pop up a window saying nothing was wrong, or display errors. It doesn't do that? Can you post your action file here?

I'll change the extension when I get home.  That may be why it wasn't testing.  If it still doesn't test, I'll put the contents of the action file up.  Thanks.

Sorry for the delay.  I had some computer issues to sort out.  Below is the content of the action file.  It still doesn't do anything when I try and test it.  Do I have the syntax incorrect?

# Plink command to start Samba Server on PogoPlug
command://e:\plink\plink.exe
-ssh root@192.168.0.145 -pw Password /opt/etc/init.d/S80samba start

Sorry, don't mean to be needy, but does the syntax look correct?  Just checking, because it's not working.  Also, you guys can move this to tech support since it is already supported and not a feature request.
