    Question how to open a file for file association?

    Hi, I changed text/plain file association to notepad by me from Y-Browser
    but I don't know how to open a file in my notepad.
    I want to open a file which is execute from Y-Browser or other file browser in my notepad.
    sorry for my poor English.

    Regards,
    Enchant

    Y-Browser actually only changes the internal file-mapping, so any file-mappings done in it, wont be having effect for any other devices. Anyway Y-Tasks (with the mainserver installed ) would change the real file-mappings on device level.

    if you only want to open specific notes, then I would suggest actually making a new recognizer and using some specific data in the file or file-extension to revognize it, and then you would just use the registration resource file in the application to tell the system that it is handling the specified datatype.

    It may happen that Iamenchant is asking how he gets the name of the file to open.
