Posting a QM folder to the forum
Sometimes you want to post multiple functions to the forum. Then you create new QM folder, move the functions there, export the folder to a file, and attach the file to the topic.

This macro automates exporting and attaching. Select (click) the folder, and run this macro. It exports the folder to a temporary file and attaches it to the post you are creating.

Works with IE (tested with IE 7 on Vista) and FF (tested with FF 3.0.1 on Vista). Requires QM 2.3.0 or later. Tested only with the default forum theme.

Updated to work with IE9 and FF4.

;1. In QM.

;get selected item in qm items list
int htv=id(2202 _hwndqm)
int iid=TvGetParam(htv SendMessage(htv TVM_GETNEXTITEM TVGN_CARET 0))

;is it folder?
_s.getmacro(iid 3)
if(_s!=5) ;;not folder
,mes "This macro attaches a QM folder to the post in the forum. Please select the folder and run this macro again.[][]If you want to post a single macro, instead use menu Edit -> Other Formats."

;temporary file path
str name.getmacro(iid 1)
str tfile.from("$temp$\qmexport\" _s.RandomString(10 10 "qwertyuiopasdfghjkl") "\" name ".qml") ;;why we use random folder? because FF does not close the file, and then next time SilenExport fails.
;out tfile; ret

;export the folder to the file
del "$temp$\qmexport"; err
if(!SilentExport(+iid tfile 2)) mes- "failed to export the folder"

;out items
str items
GetQmFolderItems +iid items
out "FUNCTIONS:[]%s" items

;out word list
str words

out "[size=1]WORD LIST: %s[/size]" words


;2. In browser.

;activate browser (firefox or internet explorer)
int ie; Acc a adoc
int hwnd=win("Quick Macros Forum" "Mozilla*WindowClass" "" 0x804)
if(!hwnd) hwnd=win("Quick Macros Forum" "IEFrame"); if(hwnd) ie=1; else goto ge1
act hwnd

if(ie) adoc=acc("" "PANE" hwnd "Internet Explorer_Server" "" 0x1000)
else adoc=acc("" "DOCUMENT" hwnd "" "" 0x1080)

;click 'Upload attachment'
a=acc("Upload attachment" "LINK" adoc "" "" 0x1011); err goto ge1

;type the file path
;a=acc("Browse*" "PUSHBUTTON" a "" "" 0x1091 0 0 "previous")
;a.SetValue(tfile) ;;does not work with file input elements
;a.Select(1) ;;in FF works but I cannot type text; is the edit field readonly?
;a.Mouse(1) ;;also cannot be used in FF because it opens the dialog
;so we have to click Browse...
a=acc(iif(ie "Filename:" "Browse*") "PUSHBUTTON" adoc "" "" 0x1011)

int hfu
if(ie) wait(10 WA win("Choose file*" "#32770" "IEXPLORE" 3))
else hfu=wait(10 WA win("File Upload" "" "FIREFOX" 3))
key (0.3) (tfile) (0.3) Y (0.1)

;click 'Add the file' button
;a.Navigate(iif(ie "next2" "parent next2"))
;disabled the above code to allow you to click either 'Add the file' or 'Update file'

mes "Internet Explorer or Firefox must be running, with 'Post a new topic' or similar page in QM forum."
Had to tweek...
Windows XP

First had to make sure forum was set to prosilver theme.
Second had to add:

Acc b=acc("Add the file" "PUSHBUTTON" win("Quick Macros Forum • Post a reply - Mozilla Firefox" "MozillaUIWindowClass") "MozillaWindowClass" "" 0x1001)
in place of:
a.Navigate(iif(ie "next2" "parent next2"))

Other than that...ran good.

Just tried this and I have to say it is way to cool and I will start using it. Very nice job.
This version also displays word list in output. Paste it in the post to make the attachment searchable.
Also it does not press 'Add file' button. After you run the macro, you can press either 'Add file' or 'Update file' button.
