Creating Drag and Drop Batch File

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I'm having trouble finding a way to create a batch file that will create pre-named folders within a folder that is dragged and dropped onto that batch file.

So my batch file currently looks like:

md New1
md "New 2"
md "New 3"\"New 4"

and I'm wondering if there is some way to create those folders in a folder that I can drag and drop onto the file.

Thanks!

The action of drag n' drop something over a .cmd file (batch file) is passed as first parameter to the batch, which is "%1".

So, create a batch file as follows:
 

@ECHO OFF
SETLOCAL ENABLEEXTENSIONS
ECHO %1
ECHO %~1
ECHO %~d1
ECHO %~dp1
ECHO %~dpn1
ECHO %~dpnx1
ECHO %~z1
PAUSE

to have an idea of what you can get by dropping on the cmd file a directory.

As the usual recommendation, using directory or filenames including spaces is not particularly smart because there is the need to put them into double quotes (and remove quotes when needed), BTW out of the three lines you posted one is wrong.
