« on: August 01, 2011, 17:56:36 »
Did you press the "Save" button in the File Editor Setup dialog

Support and Feedback / Re: Mass file renamer
« on: August 01, 2011, 17:40:30 »
A plugin for advanced mass renaming is under development.

But a limited mass renaming is already supported.

Menu > Tools > Rename > Replace text in name

It can replace a subtext in all the selected file with a new text.

Support and Feedback / Re: How do I use tabs?
« on: August 01, 2011, 17:37:34 »
And you can duplicate a tab with Ctrl+T

Duplicate tab will create a new tab showing the same path as the one you press CTRL+T on.

If you right click on a tab you will get a popup menu with the tab commands.

I have added a some of them now. More will be added later

  • GetSourceFocusName();
  • GetSourceFocusPath();
  • GetTargetFocusName();
  • GetTargetFocusPath();
  • GetSourceSelectedFileNames();
  • GetTargetSelectedFileNames();
  • GetSourceSelectedPaths();
  • GetTargetSelectedPaths();
  • LogDumpArray();

Code: [Select]
@var $SourceFocusItemName = GetSourceFocusName();
@var $SourceFocusItemPath = GetSourceFocusPath();
@var $TargetFocusItemName = GetTargetFocusName();
@var $TargetFocusItemPath = GetTargetFocusPath();

Log(0, 10, "SourceFocusItemName : \"" + $SourceFocusItemName + "\"");
Log(0, 10, "SourceFocusItemPath : \"" + $SourceFocusItemPath + "\"");
Log(0, 10, "TargetFocusItemName : \"" + $TargetFocusItemName + "\"");
Log(0, 10, "TargetFocusItemPath : \"" + $TargetFocusItemPath + "\"");

@var $SourceSelectedFilenames = GetSourceSelectedFileNames();
@var $TargetSelectedFilenames = GetTargetSelectedFileNames();
@var $SourceSelectedPaths = GetSourceSelectedPaths();
@var $TargetSelectedPaths = GetTargetSelectedPaths();

Output in application log window is

More script function is definitive needed.
And you got a good point about the functions you mention. I will add something like that for the next beta release.

If you have the need for any more functions just let me know and I will see what I can do.

Sounds useful.

And since it already has function for creating MD5/CRC32 /SHA1 that should easy to add.

I will add it to the list.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: [Request] Hide menu bar
« on: July 28, 2011, 21:57:53 »
I can see how that can be good to have.

should not be to hard to fix.. I think.

I will add it to the list.

It is not there.. yet.

But it is coming. It is being designed and will be added.

Support and Feedback / Re: Copy files with long filepaths
« on: July 28, 2011, 07:48:15 »
Internally MC supports paths up to 4096 characters.

Support for long paths are limited. It works in some places and some don't. Multi Commander is using 3th party code for a lot of things. Like for example archives like 7zip, rar and so on, and they might have problem with long path. It has not been tested

The main functions have only been limited tested with long paths. when working with files on local harddrive.

Support and Feedback / Re: Win2K
« on: July 26, 2011, 20:39:34 »
Unfortunately I don't remember what API from WinXp that is used, that does not exists in 2000.

If you get it working with KDW, please let me know.

Support and Feedback / Re: Win2K
« on: July 26, 2011, 20:16:46 »
Win9x and Windows 2000 support was dropped because some OS feature that exists from WinXP was needed.

Sounds like an good idé. I will look into that.

Support and Feedback / Re: View Image or Media files
« on: July 26, 2011, 11:17:38 »
Right now it is not possible to configure external viewers for F3/view.
A workaround is to configure Edit to use a external picture viewer and use edit as view.
Another workaround is to define a user command that open the selected file with an external viewer and then assign a hotkey for that command.

A built in picture viewer and configuration of external viewers is something that is very high up on the todo list.

Support and Feedback / Re: File/Folder Copy
« on: July 24, 2011, 20:22:36 »
Windows build in copy is NOT used.  Multi Commander using it's own. Have it's own buffers and ways of reading and writing.
For example if target and source is located on physical different drives, it is copying using async mode (Write data on target while at the same time it can read from the source)

It is possible to tweak how this should work.
In the Copy dialog you can "Options>>" and then "Advanced>>" and the Read/Write Strategy can be tweaked.
However... It is not recommend that anything is change here, unless you really know what you are doing..

Support and Feedback / Re: Editor
« on: July 24, 2011, 00:49:34 »
After you opened the button editor, You need to click on the button you want to edit.
Then the editor will update and show the current state of that button. Then you can change it and then click on "update changes" to save the changes.

Don't really know if I understand.

If you stand in one location you want to show be able to change so it shown all files and folder and sub files/folders. Like a flat structure.

Eg if you have this tree structure.


then you would see


And if you select and copy File1.txt to G:\ it would keep the tree structure for file1.txt and
you would get G:\Folder2\SubFolder1\File1.txt

Is that what you mean ?

Support and Feedback / Re: removed file extensions
« on: July 20, 2011, 11:17:45 »

Yes hiding the file extension can be dangerous, I agree.
If showing the file extension in the 'ext' column is not what you want, you can have the file extension to be show in the filename or even in both columns.

Explorer Panel Settings->Layout.->File and Folder Display->File Extension :

3 options for that exists : 'Both in filename and ext field' , 'Only in filename field', 'only in ext field.'

List mode is planed and coming.

I done some test it it looks like sometimes to fails silently. and sometime you get a login dialog. Don't know why you don't get a login dialog evertime. However it if it fails it should not to it silently. So that is something I will change.

Activating logging does not do anything. There is not logging around the network connection code. Might be a good to also implement that.

I will take a look at the entire network thing. And make sure it handles errors better.

Jungle.. I will send you a private message.

Strange.  I get a login dialog here.

I will do some more testing and investigate why that could happen.

Double Items
It is some kind of timing issue. I'm not able to reproduce it here. But I will try to see if I can force it to happen someway.
If you have the time. I can send you a build of MultiCommander that output some logging about that it does when scanning the filesystem.

Hand Icon
I did some checking and Windows 7 does now support the hand icon anymore.

I rewrote the icon overlay handling a while ago, and overlay icons for the tortoiseSVN shell extension and others are working.
So I never notice that the hand icons stopped working since almost everybody testing MultiCommander was also running Win7.

I will take a look at it. Just need to find a win XP with develop environment on, but I think I got a vmware with that somewhere.

I seen that sometime my self on very rare occasion. But I never been able to reproduce it so I could debug it.

If you press F2 (refresh) it should fix that.

Couple of question of you have the time.

Have you listed "\\[your_computer_name]\d$" before in the same instance ?
MultiCommander does a lot of caching and if you listed it before that path might be cached in memory.
And the problem might be when it trying to update the cache.

Can something have updated the filesystem at "\\[your_computer_name]\d$" at the same time. (some program other then MultiCommander wrote a file, deleted a folder or sometime)
One theory I have is that the filesystem is change while browsing it, And that makes multicommander rescan it again. while already scanning it.  It should be protected against double scanning. but maybe there is a whole in the locking down of that.

Sorting in the tree view is always by filename. I had it follow the list view but got bad feedback on it. Most people wanted it to work as in Windows Explorer. I might include some option for it.

Hand icon on shares. I think it should be there. I know I seen it before, What OS are you running ?
Hmm on my current machine (Win7 64bit) I don't get a hand  (or other overlay icon) on folders that are shared when viewing in Windows Explorer.

Yes. That can be quite useful.

Should not be to hard to implement, So it will be there in the next release.

Yes you shown have gotten an error.

If you go to that path in windows explorer. Do you get an error then ?

I will have a look at it.

"Took me too long to find how to start the folder tree on a single explorer window, but I found it"

Strange that you "found it". Because that is not supported. Kind of makes the program a bit unusable because the whole idé of the commander style is two have 2 panels. A source and target panel.

Multi Commmander does not hides any file extension. You even got an own column for it. Only way to change that is to remove that column. and configure it not to show a file extension.

I'll have to manually re-enter all 15 or so registry entries that FORCE file extensions to be visible.
Multi Commander does NOT change anything in the registry for windows, or changing any file extension association.

Your product isn't exactly safe.
It is a file manager.  A product thats allows you to remove,delete,rename files can't be safe. Nothing is changed/removed by it self.
Its all up to the of the user.
