What is "External action" internal command (Opera Presto v 11/12)?

  • Question to all Presto experts here.
    What is "External action" internal action (presents in Opera Presto 11/12) ? What its main purpose?

    The example of "External action" command in use (in menu item):

    Item, 52111792 = External action,,,, "Reload" > Go to page, "javascript:void(prompt('', document.domain));" & Delay, 100 & Copy & Ok & Delay, 100 & Manage, "windows" & Delay, 100 & Paste & Focus next widget & Range go to end & Reload & Focus search field & Clear & Focus next widget & Deselect all & Close clicked page & Delay, 100 & Focus page

    NOTE:
    This custom menu item reloads all tabs with the same domain as in a active tab. Useful thing(sometimes).

  • Is that a menu item built by yourself?

  • Is that a menu item built by yourself?

    No. I adopted it from the unofficial Opera 12 build (simply reassembled distributive setup with a lot of customizations and tweaks).

  • I don't know what this command does. In fact, I guess it does nothing, and your item menu could be :
    "Item, 52111792 = Go to page, "javascript:void(prompt('', document.domain));",,, "reload" & Delay, 100 & Copy & Ok & Delay, 100 & Manage, "windows" & Delay, 100 & Paste & Focus next widget & Range go to end & Reload & Focus search field & Clear & Focus next widget & Deselect all & Close clicked page & Delay, 100 & Focus page.

    But maybe it have its utility ..

  • Actually, it does work. Reloads tabs in session, but only a tabs with the same domain as in an active tab.
    The main question, whats the purpose of the "External action" command ?

  • Nothing. The system puts it there to replace something it didn't understand. If it was there in the original, it is just a placeholder for the author to get the right icon ("Reload") on.

  • External action is a unknown menu action and may be used as a placeholder by menu author to mark these entries as something special.

  • It's quite strange fact that there is no strings in a original Opera's standard configuration files (i am talking about menu, toolbar, keyboard etc. configurations).

  • No strings? Oh, you mean no quotes? Opera 12 had everything represented as references to the language files.
