... The USBlink explorer would be pretty helpful. Go ahead and do it!
That USBLink is just plain awesome. Can't wait
Thanks guys for the overwhelming support!
Here is a beta release of the UsbLink explorer.
after --> Features:
1. Drag & drop files between Nspire and a Host folder and vice-versa.
2. Multi-selection support.
3. ListCtrls have sorting capability
4. Easy to use (after the initial folders set-up).Limitations and Instructions:
(a bit longish...)
1. Transfers are (at this stage) limited to only document files (.tns)
2. I do not know yet how to get a list of the folders below the 'MyDocuments' (referred as 'top-folders' below).
According to HackSpire's documentation, we should use the root-path '/' for that, but it doesn't seem to work (yet?).
3. This actually a PITA, so my work around for that is the following:
3.1 Initially the tree is filled up with some known folder names, like: Examples, MyLib and some others (ndless and gbc4nspire)
3.2 We can Add/Delete folders to/from the tree. Use right-click context-menu for that. For Example, on the screen shot, i've added mviewer and nRGBLib.
3.3 It is recommended that all the folders in the tree do exist on the calculator side!
3.4 This work it 'only' required for the 'top-folders' (the ones just below MyDocuments). All children folders are automagically detected and inserted in the tree.
3.5 These top-folders will be persisted to/from the registry. You only need to do it once or whenever a new top folder is required.
(I hope you don't use that many top-folders. Anyway, i still think its worth the effort. Maybe we'll be able to circumvent this limtation in the future, but right now i still dunno how.)
4. Start kArmTI and wait until the boot processes completes. Show the USBLink explorer (Alt+E).
5. To grab files from the calculator:
5.1 Select a folder on the tree and you should get a list of its contents on the rhs (right hand side) list (nspire's).
5.2 On the nspire list select the files you want to grab. Use the normal windows multi-select procedure: shift+cursor/mouse-click or ctrl+click
5.3. Drag the files and drop them on the Host's list. This will start the multi-file grabbing procedure. It all goes well you should get your calc's files on the host side.
6. To send files to the calculator:
6.1 Select a target folder on the tree (or use the already selected one).
6.2 Select the files on the host's list you want to send to Nspire's side.
6.3 Drag & Drop them on the Nspire's list. That will start the multi-file sending procedure.
7. Browsing nspire folders:
Double-click on a folder (DIR) item on the Nspire list to launch a dir-list command that will show its contents.
8.1 If you change a folder's name on the nspire that will be reflected on the tree, but the old folder will still 'sit' there.
To purge this/these older folder(s) you may either force a tree refill (use the refresh button above the tree ) or individualy delete the folder.
8.2 Open up the console to get a lot of log info.
Ok, enough of talk let's do the walk. Try it out and report your controlled emotions
LBNL, I know it still needs some more work, but i feel i should show you something already 'kicking'.
correcting some typos.Edit2:
I've just found the solution for the 'top-folders' nuisance mentionned above. Actually the HackSpire docs are correct. I can now confirm it. My bad, sorry. I'll get back with an improved solution, asap.
Here is the proof (for my case):
Listing '/' details...
file: themes.csv; 191 (bytes);
Listing of '/' complete.Edit3:
You may just forget about my 'top-folders' work around crap and try my new fresh version v1.29 instead.
