Link target Parameters

I have been successful in running an application from a layout object by using the Link Target property. However I have been unsuccessful in passing a parameter to the application. In short, I want to click on the wallpaper displayed and open it in a viewing program.

Entering '<path> application.exe' in the Link Target property works fine.

I want to pass the path of the current image. I have tried entering the following variable in the Link Target Params property: "%s"; %s; -P "%s". None of them expanded to the current path and filename of the wallpaper.

I have even tried appending the variable to the Link Target property, to no avail.

How do I accomplish this?

That's not possible right now.
No parsing is done on the Link Target Params setting.

Hi, Mark!

Thanks for the reply. Let me suggest this function for the future.

What I'd like to do is click on a wallpaper image and open it in a photo viewer, editor, or manager.

It's on the todo, but unfortunately, I cannot give a date for the next release.
