Defining Service Variables

I'm creating a new service. Can I define a service to include user data entry points, in the way that the built in services do?

As an example, let's say I wanted to monitor changes in a directory using ls. Can I set up the service with a self-defined variable like so:

ls {dir}

Re: Defining Service Variables

Yes indeed. Simply add custom variables in the middle-left pane to make them appear in the Insert Variable drop down menu.

Note that you may need to disclose this pane; drag apart the two dots in the middle of the window, if it isn't already visible.

See the help book for more information.
