Opera Internal Action Command List

Opera's internal actions are used to create CustomButtons, define the keyboard shortcuts, define mouse gestures and create all menus. All customization and also the Opera defaults are stored as actions in INI files.
Shown here are all action items as found in V8.0 configuration dialog. Please fill in information on syntax, usage patterns or examples as you see fit.

Syntax

A general syntax for a single command:

Action, property1, property2, label, icon

Example

Show popup menu, "Browser Menu Bar", , , "Menu"

Show popup menu is the action, "Browser Menu Bar" is the property to pass to the command and "Menu" is an icon defined in a skin file. Note that all the comma delimiters are entered even if that portion is blank.

Combining Actions: Alternative

| is similar to an OR operator: if the first action doesn't work, then the second will be used instead. In the following example Opera cannot execute 'Enter Fullscreen' if it already is fullscreen. More than two actions can be used, too:

Enter fullscreen | Leave fullscreen

Combining Actions: Conjunction

& is the concatenation operator, allowing you to string several commands to perform in order. Note that the actions are taken almost simultanously, not one by one so don't rely on one command finishing before the other starts:

Scroll down & Scroll down & Scroll down

Combining Actions: Extra Dropdown

+ shows a small arrow which is normally used to add a dropdown menu. However, that small arrow can be used with any action:

Rewind + Show popup menu, "Internal Rewind History"
Save document As,,,"Save" + Save document with images as

Combining Actions: Cycler

> is a command cycler introduced in V7.5 — it cycles from one command to the next through the list, and guarantees the name/icon can change at each state:

Set alignment, "document view toolbar", 0, "Show" > Set alignment, "document view toolbar", 6, "Hide"

Combining Actions: Icon Placement

When you make multiple action commands, you may wish to add an icon or title. The icon must then be appended to the first command:

Copy image,,,,"Window Document Icon" & Execute program, "i_view32.exe", "/clippaste" 

You can also pass selected or predefined text, the URL or the cache file path to a command, see IniFileVariables for more information.

All of these range keyphrases which are listed below, here, are used only in one context within opera's auspices — they are part of what is known as opera's "widgets." This is a name which opera has given to each little set of tools where you control the cursor on the screen with the arrow keys of the keyboard.
