File coloring uses adv. filters, File search uses them too. So the next step is integrating adv. filters with File Types :)

And Selection and ViewFilters also uses them..

FileTypes ? So when editing a file if the file is a *.txt file and it is older then 2006 open it with notepad++ ?  Hmm
Not really seeing the use case for using it with file types. There might be some very uncommon case for it.

In case of File types some UI elements in Adv. filters dialog might be disabled, e.g.:
  • Only File matching tab is visible
  • Include and Exclude combos are disabled(grayed) and are Extension part/Is
  • File content is disabled
The reason is unification. Same way of managing, same UI, less code, less mistakes etc. From my point of view of course.

That screenshot from XP ?? damn XP is ugly :)

There is a point with unification.
But the problem is to have a lot of disabled things there, Then some user going to complain why can't I do this and this there. I see the option but can change them.
For now it will not change..

No. It's Win7 with disabled themes. I don't like themes.

The slogan of MC is 'File management for Professionals', so there is no need to disable something.

Anyway, I don't ask to implement it in the next RC or release. Just an idea.
