Create a UserDefinedCommand of MultiScript type

And get the current time with gettime();  ( http://multicommander.com/docs/multiscript/functions/datetime#gettime )

Then format the time to what every format you want the datetime with formatdate ( http://multicommander.com/docs/multiscript/functions/datetime#formatdate )

Get the current source path as a base of the path where you add the datetime string to with GetSourcePath() ( http://multicommander.com/docs/multiscript/functions/getfilefromview#getsourcepath )

See this post for hints.

Create a UserDefinedCommand of Batch Script(.BAT) type

cmd /c md "%date:~0,2%.%date:~3,2%.%date:~6,4%-%time:~0,2%.%time:~3,2%.%time:~6,2%"


as go directly-open a folder?:-\

Decided to try making a script for this.

config/user defined commands -> new - insert name & decription; 
command type dropdown select - multiscript -

Code: [Select]
@var $now = GetTime();
@var $date = FormatDate( "dd-MM-yyyy" , $now );
@var $folder;
@var $FolderBaseName = GetSourcePath();
{
 $folder = $FolderBaseName ^ $date;
 MC.Filesystem.Makedir PATH="{$folder}"
 }

--gives a folder with current date in selected pane/path.

(Format Date and Time + Ask user for folder name)


Code: [Select]
// MC_Create_folder_your_input_and_date_format, F12

// MultiCommander script: Create a new folder (your input, current date and time, format)
// 2022-02M-20 18:55:27

@var $now = GetTime();

@var $folder;
@var $FolderBaseName = GetSourcePath();

// ---------------------------------------------------------
// @var $date = FormatDate( "yyyy-MM-dd" , $now );

@var $year = FormatDate( "yyyy" , $now );
@var $month = FormatDate( "MM" , $now );
@var $day = FormatDate( "dd" , $now );

@var $date = $year + "-" + $month + "M-" + $day;

// ---------------------------------------------------------
// @var $time = FormatTime( "HH-mm" , $now );

@var $hours = FormatTime( "HH" , $now );
@var $minutes = FormatTime( "mm" , $now );

@var $time = $hours + "h-" + $minutes;

// ---------------------------------------------------------

// Ask user for folder name
@var $answer = AskText("Type name of the new folder to create and move selected files.", "backup", 0);

// If user canceled, abort
if ( $answer == 0 )
{
break;
}

$folder = $FolderBaseName ^ ($answer + "_" + $date + "_" + $time);

MC.Filesystem.Makedir PATH={$folder}
