A new Experimental feature that probably only I myself have used for is ** Scriptable Columns. **

You can now create a MultiScript that will be used to get what should be shown in a column in the file list.
Add configure Scriptable filepropertys go to Column Customization (Right click on column header)
then at the side of the available columns. there is a script button.
Use this button to create a new file property (column) and connect it with a MultiScript.

Right now there is NO RESTRICTION on what the MultiScript can do when it runs for getting Column text.
But the script will be run for EACH folder and files in the file list where the column is shown.
So, if you have a MultiScript that execute an external program. this program will be executed for all items.
And that is probably not a good idea.. So be careful what script you connect.

When connect a Column with a MultiScript you select what input and output variables in the script it should use.
The Input variable in the variable that will be added with the value of the full path to the file.
Output variable it the variable that the result will be stored in.

To be able to create and debug the script easier.
You check now check if a variable exists, and if not it can be added.
This way. You can easy test the script in ther MultiScript Debugger.

Example of script that will just show the file extension in a column.


Code: [Select]
if(IsVariableDefined("$_FILEPROP_FILEPATH") == 0)
{
  @var $_FILEPROP_FILEPATH = GetTargetFocusPath();
}

@var $ext = PathGetFileExtPart($_FILEPROP_FILEPATH);

@var $_FILEPROP_DISPLAYNAME = $ext;

So to test this.
 * Create new MultiScript and paste in the code above. And save it
 * Go to Customize columns (right click on column header)
 * Click on Script button to add/edit Scritable columns
 * Click New. and then select the script you created, set Name and save.. then close.
 * The new column should now be shown in the list. You can filter on Scriptible and you find it easier.
 * Add the new column to current layout
 Save and close Window


File Operation Error Handing

File operations error handing have been totally changed.. You can now configure how File Already exists error should be handle.. (Overwrite options)
and you can also configure how Protected Files should be handle.. (Files with Hidden / System or ReadOnly file attributes.)
Other errors are not auto handled. but you can enable to skip error. then it will skip when other errors happened.
And if Show Result is enabled you get a dialog showing what errors happened and how they was handle..

The thing is that MC support many different types of FileOperation.. File normal device to normal device, To virtual device, To network, To FTP and so on.
So many different situation and I'm not sure all of them work with the auto handle and auto skip on error.

So please report any issue you see.

Yes it crashed a lot. I add you the logs in my firts post.

Could you tell me where to find the ID's of the MC crashed send to you?
No I mean a real crash dump. Normally when MC crashes it sends a crash report. and it show a CrashId after it have uploaded it for analyze. If you got this crash ID I can manually analyze the crash report,

WER report is of no use, it does not tell me where the program crash

I Cannot reproduce any issue.. can you describe exactly what you do. since there are so many way of doing copy/move in MC.
also Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V, the Copy is not handled by MC,  Copying like this. and Windows Shell will handle the copy

If it crash it does not close correctly and will not save where it was

If it crash.. Did it send a crash report ? did you get a crash id ? then I can see why it crashed.

Support and Feedback / Crashed when moving files on the same panel

Hi.

If i use CTRL-C/CTRL-V or Drag and Drop with the mouse, moving files or directories in the "same panel", the operation finished after a "hang" time, but Multicommander crashes. 

Then multicommander restarts but not in the directories in which it was working but in the ones it had when I started the program,  it does not remember the last directories in which it was working before the crash.

Her you have the log's and the wer file.

I also have all the options for logging to debug and for sending files with more than 20Mb

There are commands to do this with in the command line field.

":AutoRefresh 0"  will turn off all auto refresh.. need to restart MC. and then you need to press refresh you select to refresh.. it will not monitor folder for changes..

":AutoRefresh 1" to turn it back on..

or if you temporary want to stop it for one folder..

":UnwatchFolder <folder>"

(See Application Log Ctrl+L for information it they turn on / off )

":FolderMonitor List"
To list all folders that are monitored

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Autofolder scan/refresh: dedicated button
« Last post by veds on March 29, 2024, 10:35:58 »
It's difficult to select files in folders where many files are being added in the background: the gui starts rereading the files/folders in the map and in some cases the gui even seems to stall.
A dedicated button to temporarly disable the autofolder scan/refresh would help in such cases.

Support and Feedback / Re: Copy to Zip bug?
« Last post by veds on March 29, 2024, 10:22:29 »
Hi Mathias,

This is the content of the MC log file.

I create a new zip file with the copyto dialog by copying two files and specifying a zip file as destination:
2024-03-29 08:01:57.881 Copied : "D:\Test\a.txt" => "D:\Test\test.zip\a.txt" - 4 bytes in 1ms 0ms Total : 0ms - Average Speed : 4000 bytes/sec (3,9 KB/sec), Read data time 1ms (3,9 KB/sec), Write data time 1ms (3,9 KB/sec)
2024-03-29 08:01:57.882 Copied : "D:\Test\b.txt" => "D:\Test\test.zip\b.txt" - 4 bytes in 1ms 0ms Total : 0ms - Average Speed : 4000 bytes/sec (3,9 KB/sec), Read data time 1ms (3,9 KB/sec), Write data time 1ms (3,9 KB/sec)

I try to add two files to the existing zip file with the copyto dialog (i get an error dialog):
2024-03-29 08:02:06.407 Unable to open target file : D:\Test\test.zip\c.txt ( Error code : 10, Internal Error Code : 3)
2024-03-29 08:02:06.407 Handle file Operations error : 10 (3) - File/Folder already exists

I opened and closed the zip file with mc and then try again to add two files to the existing zip file with the copyto dialog (it works):
2024-03-29 08:02:17.489 Copied : "D:\Test\c.txt" => "D:\Test\test.zip\c.txt" - 4 bytes in 1ms 0ms Total : 0ms - Average Speed : 4000 bytes/sec (3,9 KB/sec), Read data time 1ms (3,9 KB/sec), Write data time 1ms (3,9 KB/sec)
2024-03-29 08:02:17.490 Copied : "D:\Test\d.txt" => "D:\Test\test.zip\d.txt" - 4 bytes in 1ms 0ms Total : 0ms - Average Speed : 4000 bytes/sec (3,9 KB/sec), Read data time 1ms (3,9 KB/sec), Write data time 1ms (3,9 KB/sec)

Are you able to recreate this issue?

« Last post by Mathias (Author) on March 26, 2024, 20:55:28 »
If you browse into the zip.. It will scan the zip so it can show all files from the zip..
When you add files to an existing zip. the same things is happening. It needs first to scan the zip
So you can see how long time it takes to open the zip if you browse into it. it will take the same before it can start to add files into it
