change paths synchronously on both sides
« on: May 26, 2013, 09:31:32 »
Hi Forum,

what I need is to change the paths on both sides in sync. I need this the feature e.g. for an FTP comparison.

Is it possible?

Regards,

Mario

I'm planing something that.  However it is not as easy as one might think because a lot of things can go wrong and the question is how to handle that..

However... right now you can do it using Multi-Script..

Code: [Select]
@var $foldername = GetSourceFocusName();

@var $srcPath = GetSourcePath();
@var $trgPath = GetTargetPath();

$srcPath = $srcPath ^ $foldername;
$trgPath = $trgPath ^ $foldername;

MC.Explorer.Goto SOURCE={$srcPath} TARGET={$trgPath}
Then assign that command to a shortcut key. and if you are standing on a folder named "My Folder" in the source view. and run the command it will try to enter a "My Folder" folder in both the target and source panel.

If you want to make sure that both the source and target folder both exists before it tries to enter it you do

Quote
@var $foldername = GetSourceFocusName();

@var $srcPath = GetSourcePath();
@var $trgPath = GetTargetPath();

$srcPath = $srcPath ^ $foldername;
$trgPath = $trgPath ^ $foldername;

if( IsFolder( $srcPath ) )
{
  if(IsFolder( $trgPath) )
  {
    MC.Explorer.Goto SOURCE={$srcPath} TARGET={$trgPath}
  }
}

Thanks a lot! The script and the hotkey works well.

I found and use this feature in Filezilla. There you can press a button and all directory changes on the one hand be run simultaneously on the other side. Whether by keyboard or mouse. If you´ll enter a directory that not exist on the other side, filezilla ask you to unlock the button. Thats a very nice feature for directory comparison with your eyes.

Maybe you will set this feature in a future release.

Greatings, Mario
