Command: GetHash

This script add-in adds a GetHash command which gets the selected files' hashes and outputs them to a dialog, clipboard, or text file.

(Not to be confused with the built-in GetSizes command, which can calculate hashes and display them in file display columns.)

Script File:

  • GetHash.vbs.txt (7.7 KB)
  • Download the file and drag it to Preferences / Toolbars / Scripts to install it.

Button Example:

To use this, you must have installed the script above.

See How to use buttons and scripts from this forum for how to paste the button code on to your toolbar.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<button backcol="none" display="both" label_pos="right" separate="yes" textcol="none">
	<label>Show &amp;MD5 and SHA</label>
	<tip>Show selected files' MD5 and SHA hashes</tip>
	<function type="normal">
		<instruction />
		<instruction>GetHash MD5 SHA MODE=DIALOG </instruction>

Script Code:

The script code from the download above is reproduced here for reference:

Nice Script!It's an efficient way for Checksum files。But this script can't display sha-1 hash correctly sometime.look my attach pic show

I've been fixing up old button/script posts from before we changed forum software, and noticed that this one could be sped up when calculating more than one hash type.

The DOpus.FSUtil.Hash method lets you specify multiple hash types so they can all be calculated at once. (We may have added this to Opus after this script was written. I'm not sure.) That can make it a lot faster with large files, since they only need to be read from disk once.

An example of how it works can be found in my post here in this thread Button: Show MD5/SHA (which is about some buttons that do similar things).
