Easily update your ActionBar

Hello everyone,

I came across the need to update an ActionBar in a comfortable way, since I had several makros which are “work in progress”. The attached script can be integrated in your ActionBar and used for this task.

What it does

  • it looks for all connected makros (ijm-files) which are listed in your ActionBar.txt-file
  • if a makro ends with (i.e. *_v01.ijm), these files are checked for updates
  • if a new version is found (i.e. *_v03.ijm) these updates your ActionBar
  • after a restart of fiji you're up to date

Usage

  • change the variables in the config block (found top in the makro)
  • you're free to use *.ijm and *.txt-files in your ActionBar; for example:
    runMacro("C:\\my_place_for_makros\\pretty-nice-stuff_v01.ijm")

Change-Log / Download

ActionBar_Updater_v03.ijm

  • *.ijm and *.txt file-types work for makros
  • added config block at top
    • ActBar: change it to your ActionBar-file
    • verbose : prints to log or not (default: true)
    • dialog: prompts the user if updates were found (default: false)
  • uncommented lines are not searched for makros
  • bug fixed: update checker-loop had a bug in its routine


ActionBar_Updater_v02.ijm

  • first version of makro




I tested it on Win and it should work on other architectures as well.

Feel free to use and modify it on your own risk.

Regards, Rainer
