Custom Export (CSV)- use variable value as output filename?

Post by kujo_adal » Tue May 29, 2012 12:57 am

Is it possible that the next version of Helium could allow include a new feature to allow us to dynamically/programatically choose the Custom Export's file name?

For example:

(as regular helium parameter/variable):
"C:\Users\{User Name}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Helium\Helium Scraper.appref-ms" "C:\Users\{User Name}\Desktop\file.hsp?param1=value2&param2=value2&--starting-url=http://www.example.com&--auto-save=true&--auto-close=true&param_exportfile=C:\temp\export.csv"

or, to save into the current working directory:
"C:\Users\{User Name}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Helium\Helium Scraper.appref-ms" "C:\Users\{User Name}\Desktop\file.hsp?param1=value2&param2=value2&--starting-url=http://www.example.com&--auto-save=true&--auto-close=true&param_exportfile=export.csv"

(these options would necessitate adding the choosing of Helium Variables/Params as choices for the Filename entries in the Attached Screenshot's dialog window (vs. only a file picker)).
