I will see what I can do

By default it will send any key to the command line field. But even if you turn that if there is a hotkey that bring focus to the command line field
the key that is right of the "1" key.

Please, I mean no disrespect.  You're an admin, and I'm just a newbie.
But did you mean to the LEFT of the "1" key ??   ???

Look at the keyboard.. locate the "1" key.. look what key is to the left.
It is not connected to the character that the layout in encoded to. but the keycode for that key.  On Swedish keyboard it is '§' but it will be different.
HOWEVER.. if you got a none standard keyboard . that key can be located somewhere else.

Build 2508
It works very good, but there is no real time progress and realtime bandwidth anymore.
Hmm Strange..  I can't reproduce that.
It is always ? Only on some locations ? or other unique situation ?

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Google Drive support?
« on: April 08, 2019, 08:27:41 »
In previous posts you indicated Google Drive is not supported because the folder path cannot be identified by MC.  I did a search of my Windows 10 registry and found the reg location indicating the path to the Google Drive local folder.  Open RegEdit.exe and navigate here:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Drive
Under here, the Path is shown on the right.  (see attachment below)

Now that we know where the Google Drive path is, I would like to suggest it be added to MC (like Dropbox and OneDrive), please.
I am using MC (x64) V8.3 (build 2469) on Windows 10.   

Thanks very much for your consideration.

That PATH location is not where the goolge drive folder is located  but the path to where google drive store its Database and settings

1)  Yes the panel is waiting for the scan to complete you should be able to cancel it with the ESC key

2) Think it is the same as above that it is in a wait state. should be able to cancel it with ESC. But I will take a look

3) Not able to get that. Might be a timing issue.

From the search Dialog you can stop the search. And I'm planing to have some Pause/Stop things somewhere. but since search is not its own panel . there is no real good place to place them..

You can press the search hotkey to open the search dialog again

Multiple searches are on the list. But before messing with that I want a single search to work first..
The problem with that is how handle the in a UX way. becuse the search dialog is now connected to the current search and such

But, I am sure it can be done easily using standard c++ libraries...
Have you consider this? I think, many people would like to see such functionality.
-Pawel

It is not that easier.. MC got lots of custom UI components that would need to be rewritten. and also all those libs cost money.. and cost for upgrades efter year and so on.
and the budget for MC is very very very low right now. (Since it is free)

7
Then most API calls need to be run in separated thread. and the Core Windows API is not designed for that.
And it would also open up for so many strange issues, So MC would become very unstable for a long time.
But all work that can with resonable effort be run in own threads, are spawned to own threads.

If you write apps using C#/WPF/UWP it is a lot easier to do async call since MS have wrapped most Windows API already as async functions

Support and Feedback / Re: http or https protocol
« on: April 03, 2019, 13:09:03 »
Not currently possible since the webside is run on a shared server and if you do HTTPS then site alias handling will not work.

In the Edit menu you got many Compare and select functions.. and you also have a advanced option .
In the advanced you can compare by time.

No, Gfx drivers is not the cause.. it is a change/bug in Windows since Windows 1809.
And I'm working on a workaround, whoever it require a lot of redesign in how progress dialogs and error dialog are handled, So it have taken some times but it is almost ready for the next beta version.

I will look into that.

Support and Feedback / Re: FTP + TLS + Passive = Problem
« on: April 03, 2019, 12:57:48 »
Hi , I have a similar issue with a passive ftp connection. My work access it trough proxy, and using other port for ftp might be a problem if the application doesn't treat it correctly.
My ftp server uses other port (990) for authenticated users only, and 21 for anonymous access.

Please note that using FreeComander I am able to connect to ftp using 990 port, and it doesn't have proxy settings or it might use by default the system settings.

 So when I use the 990 port I get this response:

2019-04-03 11:11:19 = Connection to site: ftp.xxxxx on port 990
2019-04-03 11:11:49 < = ** Timeout no repsonse from server **

With default port I get a connection try .. but still fails in the end .. since I need to be authenticated

2019-04-03 11:10:21 = Connection to site: ftp.xxxxxxxxxx on port 21
2019-04-03 11:10:21 < 220 Welcome public xxxxx server. Anonymous are welcome.
2019-04-03 11:10:21 > AUTH TLS
2019-04-03 11:10:21 < 234 AUTH command OK. Initializing SSL connection.
2019-04-03 11:10:21 = Connected using : TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA
2019-04-03 11:10:21 > USER xxxxxxx
2019-04-03 11:10:21 < 331 User name okay, need password.
2019-04-03 11:10:21 > PASS (hidden)
2019-04-03 11:10:21 < 530 Not logged in.
2019-04-03 11:10:21 = Command failed

I don't think this is the same issue. that is not a timeout issue.. The main issue here is that some sort of compatibilityissue that cause a timeout becuse windows except more data but the server does not.

I have not been able to recreate the main issue my self yet. It require a lot of time to setup everything and such and I have not had the time for that,

No MC is not written in delphi.
It is written in C++ is is depended on Windows standard UI. And the standard UI componets in MC gets the colors for the system settings

14
It already does that for the most part..  All Copy operations are background thread, Folder sizing, file system scanning, and lots of other operations.
Almost everything that can is run in the background threads


15
You almost never need to use the mouse if you are using the commander styled mouse and key setup

By default it will send any key to the command line field. But even if you turn that if there is a hotkey that bring focus to the command line field
the key that is right of the "1" key. It is a fixed key. so different keyboard layout have different character on that key,
But you can also configure configure a key for that in Keyboard customization.

Support and Feedback / Re: How to delete initial parts of filename
« on: March 11, 2019, 08:37:09 »
You can do it in two ways

"[N,7]"  then it starts at position 7.
Or in the Search and Replace part you can enter "index." in the find field and blank in the replace with field

i reported this already...... http://forum.multicommander.com/forum/index.php?topic=2666.msg9164#msg9164

I had seen your post, too. But this thread is older, and heading and description are more detailed. That’s why I choose to post here, even though Matthias (Author) posted a more recent answer in your thread.

But I think, you have a good point. It’s odd that the copy/move/delete dialog gets its own icon in the task bar and is not stacked above the “main” icon. Maybe this might really solve the problem.

That is not the problem.  What is shown on the taskbar does not matter. Problem is that when active windows goes away the next window in the stack should be set to focus.
And most of the times it is MC. But if you navigated away from MC And then back to the progress windows, Then it should not be MC that pops up when it goes away.
Problem is that Windows takes the wrong window. But it only happens in some special condition like when windows are run from background thread and dialog is not modal.

I have not seen anything like that

Maybe you can change the kind of the progress windows that they are no longer have a own place in the taskbar. This boxes should be inside of MC and not outside with a own place on the taskbar.
That is not the problem. Problem is that Windows have change how they decided what window to but pack into focus. It's a bug in Windows. But since not many program does this. I suspect this bug is not there top priorotiy.

It should work. I use it my self very often.
However, There are a lot of things that need to be correct for FTP to work. And all FTP server have there own quirks.

Error 10060 is a socket timeout error.  Might be Firewall issue. might be cipher error.

Thanks Mathias

I'd originally assigned e05470df6fa74db19ad73aa2c34228ba - that had been working...
I went thru the command selection process again & assigned e05470df6fa74db19ad73aa2c34228ba (again?!) & now it's working OK ::)  so that is just MC giving me a slap in the face I think :D
e05470df6fa74db19ad73aa2c34228ba ? that is a ID of your UserDefinedCommand ?
Then it depends on what that command was using.

So far so good for me - no CTDs etc.

Ref the search panel - I'd previously assigned it to a toolbar button - that is now broken, has the reference ### changed or...?
The RES# method seems more versatile but I'd like the window to open in the opposite pane as per old behavior or is that switchable via options?

I will keep digging just in case this is me not & MC  :P

Thanks for the continued MC dev work Mathias :)
Hmm If you reference via the search extension command you need to change so you call it using the "FindFiles…" command.. the core command found under the file menu

Yes it should open in the target panel, Will fix that

One know issue is that if the search is taking long time to scan and it does not find anything for a long time. You do not really see that anything is happening.
It looks like it might have stalled. but it has not.
I have not really decided on how to show that it is still working yet.  So if you got a cleaver idea. feel free to post it.
What about "endless"/marquee progress bar llike when calculating folder size?
It is on my possible list. not sure if the current path being searched should be visible or not. if not. then the progress bar in the status bar would work.

Report any bugs you find and please try to specify exactly how I can reproduce it. .There are often multiple way to do things in MC and since I have limited time, it would be great if you can be as specific as possible when reporting bug.

Most issues I look for is how the new Virtual result panel works. if there are any command of function in MC that does not work on files in the RESx: device.
And so on..

Not for search directly.

But
Menu > Help > Clear User Data

and check "Log, history and Session info " will clear all history information for all parts in MC

Or history information for search is in registry under

REG:\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MultiCommander\SessionHistory\bb34636789224963bbde35059dca2365\
