Camera Control Snapshot File Name

I have a script to command my robot to take a picture, after it takes the picture I have it open the folder location the picture went to so I can manually check the picture which works just fine.

Code:


#This opens the folder where the picture was saved
Exec("C:\Users\weyou_000\Pictures\My Robot Pictures")


What would be even cooler is if I could open directly the picture the robot just took, rather that just the folder. Does anyway know a way to do that? I am assuming I might need to catch the file name ARC uses when it saves the picture, but under the camera control settings and variables I did not see that as an option.

I've checked the ? and the setting gear of the camera control and I did not see an option for this. If it's not there could it be added in the future?

Thank you!
