Define a LaunchBar action for a particular file type

Post by Alberti82 » Thu Mar 01, 2018 11:09 pm

Dear all,

Does anyone know how to define a custom action (for example through Launchbar's Action Editor) that is triggered only for a particular file association/type.

This might appear as a odd request. After all, one could change the association for the file type to a different program. However, this is not what I am looking for. What I would like to achieve is to create an action displaying through the LaunchBar menu the files contained in a library file ".trlib" of Reinvented Software Together app when the user clicks with the "right arrow" on a ".trlib" file. It would be pretty easy to write the Action in any scripting language to collect the list of files. However, I do not know how to instruct LaunchBar to react on a particular file type/association.

Thanks to anyone who can suggest any idea!
