Macro Express Forums

Fast Google Search, Dictionary Lookup...

Recommended Posts

I've been working with macro express for about 4-5 years but I just found this forum so I don't know if this is common knowledge or if it even deserves its own thread here, but there's some nice stuff you can do with that prompt box and a url or two.


Really, all you have to do is set a string variable from a prompt, and then use it in parameters for your favorite browser. I use maxthon, so here's an example of my google one:


<TVAR2:01:02:FGoogle what?FFCenter:Center>
<TMVAR2:21:01:01:001:000: +>
<TMVAR2:21:01:01:001:000: "%22>
<LAUNCHDEL2:0:01C:\Program Files\Maxthon\Maxthon.exe<PARAM>http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&q=%T1%>


See? It's that easy. Here's a few URLs to get you started on making your own:

Google: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navc...ie=UTF-8&q=%T1%

Dictionary.com: http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=%T1%

UrbanDictionary: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=%T1%&f=1

Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%T1%


And there's plenty more. Practically anything you can think of that uses a search function will have this sort of URL somewhere along the way. With that URL, you can create for yourself a direct shortcut straight to the results you want. Isn't ME great?
