Beta Releases / Multi Commander v3.0
« on: December 27, 2012, 12:45:42 »
Multi Commander v3.0 is planned to be out at the end of Januari.

v3.0 will not contain any new major features. However a lot of work will be done under the hood. (It will contain bug fixes and improvement of exists features)

* MultiCommander will be moved to be built with VisualStudio 2012 using the platform toolset "V110-XP"
* Some resources like icons (and some other ) will be moved out of MultiCommander.exe and places in resource dll. This will for example allow users to easier customize and replace all the icons if they wish.
* Language system will be updated. The language files will still exists as today, but they will be stored in another way and will be named different.
 also the built in language editor might get some changes.
* How and where some configuration are stored. Some configuration will be split, some joined.
* Clean up of the SDK API so that can be released.
* + bug fixes and improvements

So most of the work for v3.0 is under the hood to prepare it for the future and future features.

I will not provide beta version of 3.0 under the normal automatic beta upgrade process. Since some of the changes that are coming are breaking change for the settings and in the beginning it will not be able to upgrade the configuration automatically.

So instead I will provide links here to betas of the portable version. (Only portable, so that is does not changes any settings for the normal version)
So when the alphas/beta are starting to come out. Please test them and let me know if there are any problems.

@var $time = 1356998400;

// Path to where you want to create the folders
@var $FolderBaseName = "D:\\Test\\";

@var $date = "";
@var $folder;

@var $n = 0;
for( $n = 0; $n < 365; $n++ )
{

 $folder = $FolderBaseName ^ $date;

SDK / Multi Commander - Extension / Plugin System
« on: September 01, 2012, 16:17:08 »
Multi Commander is build around extension and plug-ins, almost all tools major features  in Multi Commander comes from an extension.

There are a couple of different types of extension and plugins.

Tools / Utilities Extension
These are extension that can interact with the core system in Multi Commander. They can show a GUI in it's own window or inside a tab.
Extended the script system with more commands, add own command that will be shown in the menu.

Eg. PictureViewer is a extension that shows it's own gui, MultiRename is an extension that is mixing internal gui element inside it's own window and The File Checksum verifier shows it's GUI inside a tab in Multi Commander. FSFTPScript extends the script language with FTP support.

File System Plugins
These are used to allow Multi Commander to browse archives, FTP, Registry and other resources that has a file system like structure.

File Properties Plugins
These are plugin that are used to retrieve file properties on file. For example the Picture Properties plugin allow you to get file properties of picture files so you can show column with picture properties like Image size, EXIF date and a lot more.

File Operations Plugins
These are plugin that are used during copy/move and delete operations. They can modify the target location of the file, Change the data that is read/written or do something after a file operation is completed.

For example the built in plugin "Auto Sort" will change the target location so that if a file called "MyFile.txt" is copied, it will place it under a 'M' subfolder under the selected target location.  And the AutoUnpack plugin will notice if the user are copying a .zip file and will then tell the system to copy the content of that file instead, So that the zip file is automatically unpacked.

SDK

Requirements
You will need to have knowledge of C++ to use the SDK. The included samples needs at least Visual Studio 2015  (vs2017 also works, But plugin will not work on XP then)
(VS2015 Express Desktop Edition should work.)

SDK Download
Download SDK ( v1.73 ) (Last updated 2017-06-25)

Tips and Tricks / Change path, Keep subpath
« on: August 25, 2012, 15:41:09 »
There is a special trick with the path field that will allow you to change path but also allow you to keep the subpath.

This is something that are mostly useful for developers that work with multiple version and branches.
That has many folders structures that are the same.

For example.
You have several feature branches for the same application that you are working on in your developer folder

for example
  D:\Dev\MyApp\Branch_FeatureA
  D:\Dev\MyApp\Branch_FeatureB
  D:\Dev\MyApp\Branch_FeatureC


You are currently located in D:\Dev\MyApp\Branch_FeatureA\ComponentA\Source\ClassA\

And you want to change to the same location but under Branch_FeatureC.
(With other word you want to go to D:\Dev\MyApp\Branch_FeatureC\ComponentA\Source\ClassA\ )

To do that you can edit the path field and manually change Branch_FeatureA to Branch_FeatureC or you can move up the folder structure until you come to the MyApp folder Down the Branch_FeatureC folder until you reaches ComponentA\Source\ClassA\

This is not very optimal.  And there is an even faster way to to this.

If you right click on a parent location in the path field you will get a list of the folders in that location allowing you to fast go to a folder under a parent folder.

So if you right click on "MyApp" part in the "D:\Dev\MyApp\Branch_FeatureA\ComponentA\Source\ClassA" path in the path field, You will get a list showing Branch_FeatureA,Branch_FeatureB and Branch_FeatureC Then when you select Branch_FeatureC It will take you to that folder.

Now the special trick. If you hold Shift+CTRL when you right click on the "MyApp" part in the path field. It will try to keep the same subpath when it change the path. So when you then select "Branch_FeatureC" from the list,
it will take you directly to "D:\Dev\MyApp\Branch_FeatureC\ComponentA\Source\ClassA\", Keeping the same subpath as you currently are in.

If the subpath does not exists under the new path, it will take you in as far as it can.

Tips and Tricks / Correct Folder date
« on: July 26, 2012, 14:27:37 »
This is another of the lesser know feature of Multi Commander.

One thing that is a bit annoying with how the file system works in Windows is how the file system changes the date of a folder if a file in that folder is removed/added. If you add (or remove) a file in a folder, then the date of the folder that this files was added to is also changed.

And Sometimes you do not want. Because you are for example sorting the folders by date. and now the sorting is messed up.

For example

Say you got folders with pictures you have taken on different vacations you been on and the date of the folder are matching the date of the files inside the folder. The picture files inside the folders have the date and time of when the picture was taken so the folder have the date and time of the latest picture.
(Btw, The tool 'Adjust EXIF date information' can also set the file date to match the date of the EXIF date from the picture )

So when sorting the picture folder by date you will get the folder in the correct order.

Folder          Date
Sidney        2011-04-16
New York      2010-11-12
Pairs         2009-12-12



But then you remove some of your bad picture from the Paris folder. The problem is that the date of the Paris folder will now change.

Folder          Date
Pairs         2012-07-26
Sidney        2011-04-16
New York      2010-11-12


To correct it you can modify the date you self. But if you have many folders with incorrect date that is a pain.

It is now the "Correct Folder Date/Time" tool that you find under the tools menu in Multi Commander come to use.

This tool will scan the files inside the folder and its subfolder and then change the date/time of the folder and subfolders to the time of the latest date/time of a file inside that folder.
So the folder will now receive the date and time of the latest file in that folder.

You will have the option to exclude files from the scan. For example if you added a text file to you pictures with description and other information about the picture you might not what the scan to include the date of that file into the scan, You then enter "*.txt" in the Ignore field.
Or you could also add *.jpg in the Include Only field.
