Cmd prompts from widget designer?

Postby thommoser » Wed Aug 12, 2020 8:46 pm

Hi together

I'm trying to shutdown remote computers (normal computers without PBMenu installed)...
I'm wondering if there is a way to send Cmd prompts from widget designer itself as would you use "CMD" on windows directly? I've installed WD 6.12...

thanks for any help!

You can use the command ApplicationStart(Filepath:String,Text:String) to run a .cmd or .bat file.
Please find the explanation and an example how to use this command in our helpfile: ... d_list.htm

You have also the possibility to create your .bat or .cmd file directly in WD, e.g.:
- Create a Textbox and add the related commands.
- Use the command TextBox1.ToFile(filepath) to create a file and save it as .bat or .cmd
- Finally you can use the ApplicationStart command to run this file.

I hope that helps.
