Beta Releases / Re: File context menu doesn't work on 4.5.1766
« on: August 14, 2014, 17:05:19 »
Only file context menu does't work. All other menus open well. I have tried to disable Context menu handlers in ShellExView. But it didn't help, unfortunately. And without address bar in the taskbar menu doesn't work. I think it's something about some apps installed or Windows bug. And maybe I haven't produced such combination before to notice that.
But yes, it's only my home PC's problem, on my work PC the menu works OK.
Thank you again, you are doing good thing ;)

Thank you for full relpy.
I'll try to test all I can tonight. I haven't installed anything in near past. I'll try to investigate shell extensions and language indicator. Thanks for the utility link, it will help.

I've made video with all actions.
Don't worry it's an exe, uvScreenCamera makes a container with player and video in exe format.
Note, that when I press call context menu, the current language indicator in the right bottom corner disappears and then appeares again. If I don't minimize all windows, the indicator won't disappear and all works fine. Doesn't matter what you use - keyboard or mouse, result is same. Menu doesn't appear only on those files - registered file types, not executable and not folder. All other places it works OK. If there is other window opened, the focus goes to it.
I don't use any key-hooking programs.
No idea about what happens. Why menu popups so long? In Explorer it appeares fast. Maybe it's because the menu is called some other way than usual?

I think I know now how to reproduce. It's not 4.5 problem, it starts earlier.
Run MC, minimize all windows (either with RMB or with WIN+D or with button in right bottom corner of the screen), then activate MC (with mouse or keyboard) and try context menu on any file. Don't change dir, just try to get menu (with mouse or keyboard). If you change dir, everything will work OK, but just after activating MC window, file context menu will not show.
I noticed, that menu won't show for files, that have icons or/and registered program to open with. However, *.exe menu will show OK. If I try *.inf, *.ini, *.txt and other registered filetypes, the menu won't be shown. If  Itry *.bak, *.tmp or other unknown types - the menu will be shown.
Hope it helps.

I press right mouse button, see a rolling cursor for 2 seconds and then the MC window goes back and some other window appears on top. But no menu. If I press RMB on a folder, everything works OK.
On version 4.4.1725 menu works right. Can't tell you, when it appeared, couldn't get previous beta version. But I haven't notice such behavior before. Ask, if you need any additional info.
Thank you.

Refreshing after copy works fine now since 4.4.1724.
Thank you!

OK, I got it about CopyFiles, will try to implement, thank you.
And the view doesn't refresh even after the script finishes. I don't use any debugger. For now the code is
Code: [Select]
@var $leftselection = GetSourceFocusPath();
@var $pathparts = PathGetParts($leftselection);
@var $rightdir = StrTrimRight(GetTargetPath(), "\");
@var $leftdrive = StrTrimRight($pathparts[0], ":\");
@var $leftrelpath = StrTrimLeft(StrTrimRight($pathparts[1], "\"), $pathparts[0]);
@var $targetpath = $rightdir ^ $leftdrive ^ $leftrelpath;
CopyFile($targetpath, $leftselection, "");
It works fine, but I see no result in the opposite pane, I have to press F5 after it finishes. Maybe there's some alternate method of copying, that will refresh the view while it works, like GUI Copy command?

Thank you for fast reply ;)
1. I see.
2. Oh, poor me. Thanks for that nice operator!
3. Right you are, \* is not needed.
Another question: How to refresh a tab after the copy process finished? I've tried MC.Explorer.Refresh with all options, but it does nothing. Only F5 button helps...
And one more, please: How can I do such copy for several selected objects? Should I use user defined function and call it in for loop? I just don't get how can I give a file list to a copy command.
Thank you!

Tonight I wanted to make something like god old xcopy script for fast backing up my C drive files and folders to make it easy to restore later.
I've started with string handling functions and got some problems:
1. In example to PathGetParts function see, that should get a drive, a path and a file/folder name in the array. But I get the path with drive in the Path cell somehow. Here's what I do:
Code: [Select]
@var $leftselection = GetSourceFocusPath();
@var $pathparts = PathGetParts($leftselection);
//$pathparts[1] shows me "C:\Users\...\and so on", in user manual it looks like "Users\...\and so on"
Where is a mistake?
2. On some part I want to concatenate some strings. I write obvious thing:
Code: [Select]
@var $targetpath = $rightdir + "\" + $leftdrive + "\" +$leftrelpath;
//all vars are strings
, but I get no result. If I use
Code: [Select]
@var $targetpath = $rightdir + "\" + $leftdrive;
$targetpath = $targetpath + "\" +$leftrelpath;
, it works fine. Should it work like this?
3. Finally, I've managed to kill MC with my crazy code (it is not correct to make what I want, but its syntax is ok and should work fine):
Code: [Select]
@var $leftdir = GetSourcePath();
MessageBox("leftdir", $leftdir, 0);
@var $leftselection = GetSourceFocusPath();
MessageBox("leftselection", $leftselection, 0);
@var $pathparts = PathGetParts($leftselection);
@var $rightdir = StrTrimRight(GetTargetPath(), "\");
MessageBox("rightdir", $rightdir, 0);
@var $leftdrive = StrTrimRight($pathparts[0], ":\");
MessageBox("leftdrive", $leftdrive, 0);
MessageBox("pathparts[0]", $pathparts[0], 0);
MessageBox("pathparts[1]", $pathparts[1], 0);
MessageBox("pathparts[2]", $pathparts[2], 0);
@var $leftrelpath = StrTrimRight($pathparts[1], "\");
MessageBox("leftrelpath", $leftrelpath, 0);
@var $targetpath = $rightdir + "\" + $leftdrive;
$targetpath = $targetpath + "\" +$leftrelpath;
MessageBox("targetpath", $targetpath, 0);
CopyFile($targetpath + "\*", $leftselection, "");
The CopyFile command causes crash after I press Cancel. The target path is wrong, but anyway, I cancel the operation so MC shouldn't crash.
That's all for now, see you later ;)

Hi again.
This time I plugged in an usb stick when MC was minimized to tray. After I restored MC, I couldn't find my USB device either in the panel or in combobox. Opening my cmputer in win explorer didn't help, refreshing tab didn't help. Entering G: to the adress line opens the device, but still it doesn't appear anywhere.

I think you misunderstood me. Look this.
2a. OK, not a big problem.
And by the way, I get Exit dialog when I double click the try icon.

« on: January 13, 2014, 08:37:20 »
Finally we see v4.
That's what I see here from first look:
  • Single click on the tray icon always show the window in its last size before minimize. So if I minimize the window not in full screen size, then show the window by pressing the tray icon, then maximize it and then press the tray icon again, the window will restore to not full screen. As I feel, it should just show me the window, not change its size.
  • Single click tray icon only shows the window. maybe it should also hide it if the window is on top and active? Maybe an option?
  • File -> Exit shows a confirmation dialog while context menu item on the tray icon "Close MC" will just close. Would be great to have an option to disable that confirmation to use user defined hotkey for exitting. Moreover, why doesn't that confirmation close on Esc?
  • A typo in russian language.
Thank you for all you do, I see many things become better. ;)

Syntax error appears when the plugin sends "USER" and "PASSWORD" without a user and a password strings. Maybe it should not send "USER" and "PASSWORD" if there's no username and password provided by a connection settings, and show authorization window, like it is done in TotalCommander? I don't really like to save my passwords at any PC not at home, but MC doesn't let me enter it when I connect.

Yes, it is only a view problem, fixes easily with refresh. And it's in beta version 1598.

Hi again.
I want to tell about some problems with FTP connection.
  • First of all, it's bad, that I have to enter user and password in connection properties. If I don't enter and server needs authentication, I get error
Code: [Select]
2013-12-21 08:17:18 > USER
2013-12-21 08:17:18 < 501 Syntax error
2013-12-21 08:17:18 = Command failed
  • The second problem appeares when I work with it - copy to or from a server. It just stops somewhen and tells me that somwthing wrong and I have to restart the process. Can I get some extended FTP log to know what the problem is?
Thank you.

I've noticed, that sometimes when I open a directory, MC makes 2 copies of lines in view list. And I can choose all of them with cursor. Happens only to directories as I remember.
Addition: Wow, it's even worse. I only had "Scaleform" directory there, and MC listed all that. It only disappeares after refreshing, I can reopen that dir and everythin will be same until I refresh.

I beleive it's already possible via multiscript and custom button. Edit an existing or make a new button like this:
Command type: Mutli-Script
Write this code in the field:
Code: [Select]
@var $textClip = GetClipboardText();
MC.Explorer.Makedir FOLDERNAME={$textClip}
This command is for making a new directory, but it's easy to modify it to renaming, just change makedir to renameing function.

Happens to me when I connect/disconnect some USB disk or load/unload virtual disk to daemon tools. Try this.

  • OK. I'll try to notice, when it starts.
  • Of course, it is not. But I meant lower- and uppercase Russian M. Why doesn't it understand they are same?

« on: October 28, 2013, 08:09:22 »
  • Nothing special: open folders and files, creating and closing tabs. Couldn't reproduce it. Is there some kind of log to know what happens?
  • I use QSearch with popup box. But why are uppercase Russian letters so special? This problem exists in many programs :(. MC just doesn't want to understand that М=м.

Support and Feedback / File search on-fly + "busy" cursor problem
« on: October 28, 2013, 07:05:50 »
I continue using MC, I like it. Now I see 2 more problems:
  • Sometimes my cursor begins to change to "busy" state and back. It changes ~2 times per second and stops only after restart MC. It only changes when mouse is above MC window. It doesn't зкумуте MC to work correctly, but it's very annoying.
  • When I want to focus some file in a forlder with a paticular name in russian, I type it letter by letter. When it's lowercase - all works OK. But when the first letter is uppercase, the search doesn't work. I have to press Shift+1st letter first, more above, I have to do it twice for some reason. E.g.: to search Мопед.xls I need to press Shift+М, +М, о, п... It seems to me that this is not the right way of action.
Thank you.

Thanks for reply.
Hope you will make it some day :) For now, I'm gonna use mouse for selecting several elements.

1 Yes space key will toggle selection and calculate foldersize of item in focus.  It is so you can move up and down with arrow key and press space and to select file and also get their size.

2. Commander styled setup is best if you working with keyboard only.. then you can walk the list with arrow keys and toggle selection of files using space or insert key.
Ctrl + Space ? never seen that combo before..  not sure you can get it using Explorer Styled setup
In Explorer Panel settings you can uncheck the options under "Selection Methods" But that will probably mess with with setup you want to have..
  • I meant I cannot get the size of all selected folders by Space. That's not a big problem, actually, don't matter.
  • Yes. Try in WinExplorer or any type of standard listview: when you toggle Ctrl, the multi-selection mode is activated, so if you press Space - the focused element will be toggled selected/unselected, if you press any arrow, another element will be focused and you can make it selected/unselected with space. It's common practice in most listviews. I like the tabbed style interface with some plugins, but total/Multi/Other commander file selection style isn't what I really want. That's why I choose Multicommander yet :) Is there some way to make it possible? Maybe some hotkeys use Ctrl+Up/Down?

Hi again.
I'll continue here, if nobody minds (if you do, please, feel free to split the message to a new topic).
I've tried to use some keyboard combos and actions, and noticed two strange things with SPACE button:
  • It is said that I can calculate the folder's size by Shift+Alt+Enter, and also with Space. When I press Space on single folder, all works OK. But when I want to do a trick with several selected folders, the result is given for a focused folder only. Is that OK?
  • I tried to work with keyboard only, like I usually do in WinExplorer. I wanted to select several files/forlders coming not one after another. I pressed Ctrl and began to press Space and moving through the filelist with Up and Down keys. It fails. How can I change this behavior? Or what other manner I can use to get the selection I want? P.S. I use WinExplorer mouse/keyboard/selection style, so Insert won't help me.
Thank you.

By "window" you mean any part or just window? Now when MC is active, but the tree is not, scroll doesn't work until the tree is activated by click.
