There are lots of code changes in version MC 10.
And they are almost all because of one feature. Dark Mode

Some background
Dark mode is somethings I wanted my self for sometimes and also a feature that is often requested.
However. It is also somethings that is not exactly easy to add.
Windows do not have any support for dark mode for standard desktop apps. (only for new UWP styled apps)
But Microsoft is working on some sort of dark mode support for standard desktop apps. Windows Explorer does support it in Windows 10.
However, it is using undocumented functions in Windows but ONLY the UI controllers that you see in Windows Explorer is supported in dark mode.
And that list is very very very low. The colors in most standard UI controller can be tweaked, Some more than other. some only in part.

So do be able to support Dark mode MC have to use undocumented features that can change between releases.
Also It require that I create custom variants of UI controllers like ComboBox (Dropdown list), Checkbox, Radio Button, and more
It also requires that current custom UI controllers must be updated to allow dark mode.
And MC contains more than a 100 dialogs and each one of them need to be tweak.

So, What is done ? And known issues.

The most common dialog does now support Dark mode, (CopyTo / Progress. Conflict dialog and more)
But not ALL of them will be fixed. there are too many, and some is very rarely shown.
But if you have one that popup a lot and want that fixed. Post a request about it here.

I created a new ComboBox like controller. Its default look of it is almost the same as the standard one.
But it might have some different behaviors. That is somethings I wanted to do for some time anyway. since I got other plans in the future that required
a combobox where I got full control of the popup that is shown.
This is used anywhere where a dark mode combobox is shown. The Command Line Field.  Device DropDown. and other places.

The option for dark mode in settings only changes the default UI, The list view. since all those colors can be customized.
If you want a full change to dark mode that also changes all the other colors go to Quick Look'n'Feel Setup and selected a new darkmode option in cutomize.
There should be a configuration for that.  (might need to restart, app for now)

MenuBar is not dark. MC is currently using the standard menubar in Windows and there is no way to change the color of that.
and I had not bad the time to create a custom menubar controller for MC. The Menubar is very deeply connected into the core of standard application.
So creating a custom menubar require a lot of work.

When a ComboBox is in NOT a dropdown list mode, it has a edit field. Like the commandline field.
This edit field is not a custom controller. creating a custom controller that is an editor is A LOT of work. because there are a lot
of language depended things it needs to support. so, the standard edit controller is used. And it is possible to tweak its background and text colors.
However. some of the edit controls in MC have a cue banner text.  this is the text that is shown if there is no text in it and it is not in focus.
And this text color can NOT be changed. That makes the text hard to read in dark mode. And there is nothing I can do about it for now.

When showing the dropdown from a ComboBox, it is shown directly. it is not animated like it was pulled down. Like the standard one. But I almost sees that as a features. It is faster to just show it.
There are some minor bugs still with the dropdown.
There might be some issue in high DPI mode, I have not done any testing with high DPI yet.
And finally, Dark mode is ONLY support on Windows 10 and because MC is using the limited support that is in Windows for it. And Windows 10 Dark mode is a theme. You will get a weird look (I assume) if you turned of all theming in Windows 10.

IMPORTANT.

Bugs you find in version 10 report them here. BUT only if there are unique for version 10.
like Darkmode stuff or other UI issues that can have been affected be the dark mode changes or new UI controllers. For other not UI released bugs please check if they are in the latest version 9.x. if they are report in normal place. Else report them here.
I really need to separate issues that are version 10 unique or not, My time is very limited since I also have a day job. And the more clear the bug reports are the the better

Also this is a ALPHA, There will be issues with it. DO NOT upgrade current version to this without creating a backup first.  Recommended is to run the portable edition

Version 10.0 (2709)  Contains all fixed that are in 9.7

Changes:
Custom CombBox controller supporting custom colors.
Custom Checkbox/Radio Button supporting custom colors.
GroupBox controller updated to a 3rd party that support custom colors and more UI options.
Some icons updated to work better with dark mode.
Default font changed to Segoe UI (if MC is upgrades this is not changed)

Other Changes:
- Everything in 9.7
- When searching for files using content matching, Binary files are not searched by default, New option added to include binary files.
- Command line filed command ":setpos x y" or ":set pos x y h w" to set pos and size of MC window.

Know issues:
- Some of the controllers may have high DPI issues. (please report issue with DPI you find)
- Device Dropdown list is not calculating the correct width. So it is not expanded if needed
- Dark mode only works with Windows 10 1903+ (Minor issues in 1804 that can be fixed)
- Menubar is not dark. And right now it can't be fixed without major rewrites. Hoping Microsoft will add DarkMode support for that. (Or if I find a good 3rd party option)
- Many dialog is not change to DarkMode. All of them will not be change. But request the dialogs that pops up often for you that you want to be updated.

Script / New function in 9.5 (ArrayToString)
« on: January 04, 2020, 14:34:37 »
From version 9.5 ArrayToString(..) now exists
http://multicommander.com/docs/multiscript/functions/array#arraytostring

It let you have an array of strings and create one string out of them, and you can specify what delimiter you want to use. (text bit that should be in between the strings)
and also if you want to put " around the each string.

All this can already be done with MultiScript funtions, but this function will make it much easier.
The main reason for this is to make string that are sent to external program as parameters easier.
like if you want to create a string with all the selected files and want to use them as a parameter

example
Code: [Select]
// get FULL path for all selected items from active view
@var $selectedItems = GetSelectedPaths();

// delimiter here is a comma and then space. ", "
// 1 is that all string should have " around then. so if there are space in the string the program can open them correct anyway
@var $selected = ArrayToString( $selectedItems , ", ", 1 );

MC.Run CMD="C:\Apps\NotePad++\notepad++.exe" ARG="{$selected}"

The MultiCommander website and forum and mail system is coming back online.
It all when down after a internet provider network change. It should have been down for only an hour. But because of some very strange and annoying reason it took them 3day to fix it.
(Everything that could go wrong did)

Everything is starting to work again. It might take up to a day until everything for everyone, since the IP was changed the domains was updated and since the domain is cached in many places on the internet it can for some people take up to a day before the are provided the correct IP address.

Support and Feedback / V9.0 IS FINALLY OUT
« on: July 29, 2019, 18:44:38 »
Version v9.0 is now finally out !!!

The workaround for the window focus bug in Windows 10 (1803) took longer then planned and also the virtual device thing took a lot longer then planned.

Next Release will not contain any major feature like that. It will be a fix up release for bugs that are found and minor changes and minor new features.
And will be released a lot faster.

So if you got any requests that you would like to see in the next version. Let me know now! (Even if you asked before)
Since I'm currently planning what to include in the next release.

There more information you can provide around a feature idea the bigger the chance is that it will be added.
However.. If it is a major addition. I will put in the the backlog for major ides for future release. For the next release I'm look for smaller quality of life fixes/addition.

(Post idea here http://forum.multicommander.com/forum/index.php/topic,3552.0.html )

Beta Releases / MultiCommander v8.9 BETA
« on: March 03, 2019, 14:50:39 »
Finally a new Beta version is here.

It been a while and it is because I do not have so much time to put on MultiCommander these day like before.
Also this release have taken extra long since I had to redesign more than I planned.

The new major core feature is that MultiCommander now have core support for virtual devices.

What it that?
That is a fake device inside MultiCommander that can hold references and show files and folder that are located in other places.
But since they are located in the virtual device almost all other features in MultiCommander will work on them,
also the Explorer panel see it as any other location so File coloring, custom columns, thumbnails and so on works on file references located in the virtual device.

So what are you going to use this for? Well as a user you will not use it directly but other features in MultiCommander will and the first one
that is using it is File Search.
Instead of file search to open its own result panel. the result will now be show in a virtual device named RES1:, or RES2:, RES3, (up to 9)
So with this,  File coloring and filtering and other features that normally work with normal paths now works on the search result.

(If there are any issue with the new result devices for file search you can enable the old search panel in Core settings > fileSystem > Tweaks )

Some other bug and minor features have also been fixed but they are not included in this beta. They re added in another code branch and will be included in the coming beta versions.

So test out the new search result panel. and let me know what works and what does not work. I got a list already of something to change. But all feedback around this is good

One different from the old panel search is that you no longer can have multiple searches running at the same time.
Not sure if that is and issue ? Support for that might be added again if there are any requests for it

Build 2515
This release has no new fixed for the new search but how progress dialogs are shown have been rewitten. This to get around the Windows 10 (1809) bug where the input focus window was not returned to MC when progress was closed. If there are any issue there is a temporary settings in Core Settings > FileSystem > Tweaks  that can you change to go back to the old way.


Build 2523 - 2019-06-08
* Can now search in the RESx: Device, So it is now possible to search in the search result
* Other minor fixes and clean up making ready for release

Build 2520 - 2019-05-26
* Added button in Explorer panel that are active only for Virtual Devices.
  It have commands for excluding items and more
* Added above commands also to context menu
* Bug Fixes

Build 2517 - 2019-05-03
* Added button top stop / pause search in waiting screen
If two panels show the res both will show the button and screen.

Build 2515 - 2019-04-28
* Fixed update issue with some progress dialogs in some situations
* Fixed issue view VirtualDeviceFolder then populated by Search Result
* Various minor update issues with search and virtual device folder fixed
* Folder search is currently searching is is now shown when filesystem scan is waiting for search to complete.
* GoogleDrive is now detected and shown in DropDown/Toolbar for cloud drive.
* SQLite support added. MC can now read/wite SQLite DB. Used for GoogleDrive support, But are plans to use it for other things in the future
* Pressing Ctrl+Left/Right arrow in th RESx: panel now works better, (Open item into other panel)
* Some stability and memory issues fixed

Build 2508 - 2019-04-07
Rewritten how progress dialogs are shown to get around the Windows 10 1809 Bug where focus was not returned to MC when program dialog was closed

Build 2500 - 2019-03-10
Added running progress in status bar when searching is active
If RESx: panel need to open open. It will now open in the target panel
Language Fixes

Build 2499 - 2019-03-06
Removed so you can not force start the old search panel from menu.
Search in extension menu is replaced with the "Find Files..." command that are also located under File Menu
You might need to update shortcut if you customized it.

 

(Bug post from previous build is split into its own post)

<int> TabCount(  <int/string> side ); // return the number of tab a panel side have
<string> TabGetPath(  <int/string> side, int tabIdx); // return the path of a tab IF that tab has a explorer panel, else empty string is returned
TabLoadTabSession( <string> nameOrID ); // load tab session

When providing side parameter it can be    1 = Left, 2 = Right , "right", "left", "top", "bottom", "target", "source" , "active" "inactive"
However. Be aware that this functions will require the UI to update, and while the script it running the UI will not update.
This is because the script is running on the same thread. So This function should be used with care. Depending on what you do after running this command. Some other command might fail. or not work as expected.


** Know issue **
 - SkipEmptyFolder do not work for ALL kind of extended volumes.  some FTP location support it some not.
   And when unpacking from archives it is only support for some archives. and only when unpacking using Copy method. not Unpack
