it's still best to start from 1024...
I don't agree. :)

you won't allow an option to start from 1024?

-Seems the argument with gradient is convincing.
-In my case the sizes weren't converted unless they reach 1.20. But I haven't used the recent beta so maybe it's the reason. I've only tried 1412.

-Windows Explorer(in both selection and copy/move dialog, etc) itself uses gradients.. so maybe it's not that resource hog..
-The breadcrumb in the address bar doesn't need to be exactly like Windows Explorer's, maybe changing '\' with '>'(what i mean exactly is the one in WE) is enough. Clicking the folder name will open it and pressing '>' will display the subfolders bar..upon clicking, the background of the folder name and '>' should change..
-I noticed that the sizes in the explorer panel are now converted to higher units (KB to MB) when they reach still doesn't start from 1024 but it's much better now..thanks for that....
-Are you using Qt Creator for UI design?
-When will the SDK be released?

 -Maybe allowing the menu items to have icons will help. Currently only 'File Search' has one. Also, please allow the users to configure the menus  and menu items(rearrange, delete, add...). 'Menu customization' lets the users add their own Menus and Menu Items for those menus but it doesn't allow the same functionality for the original menus(File, Edit, View, Configuration..etc) and menu items..Icons for the menu items will make main menu more lively..
 -You can also allow more UI elements(such as the quick launch bar, move/copy progress bars, menu items dialog(?, not sure what it's called), etc..) to have their colors configured..And speaking of colors, 'modern colors' are more than just plain colors, they also have gradients and the likes..
 -An option to display item path in the address bar in a 'explorer-like breadcrumb' (the one seen in windows explorer)..current crumb bar works fine but though it allows almost the same functionality as the breadcrumb, it isn't as modern..

- 'Browse' button near 'Look in'
- be able to display the sizes in b, kb, mb, gb
- column configuration that will not change and remain until you change it.Currently, everytime you run search, the columns of the result panel will be set to the  original configuration

Beta Releases / Re: Multi Commander v3.1 BETA Build 1379

It might be better if 'MC.Explorer.SizeFolder' will clear first the 'size' column (for folders only) before beginning the calculation process..It can be misleading if the previously calculated sizes will remain in there. One might think that what's already displayed are the current sizes while the fact is the calculation process is still going on...some folders take a long time to have their sizes calculated so the user may not wait long enough and leave the directory and think that what was displayed is the current size while the truth is the calculation process isn't complete yet..yes there's a progress bar(?) at the bottom but the user may forget to look into it...and besides it's better to see the size column being populated in action..

Clearing of the size column will be probably better if tab based..that is it won't affect the other tabs that have the same directory as the one in only the tab in focus will have its size column cleared and the sizes of its folders calculated...

-It seems that the cause of problem with the display of icons is the calculation of sizes..there isn't enough time to process the icons since MC   needs to immediately calculate the sizes..after removing it, the icons were properly displayed..'sleep' command seems to be helpful here..I added Sleep(5) before the command for calculation of sizes and it produced a better result(just kind of acceptable but not very good)..

-As for 'Remember selected files/folders when changing path' problem, it seems that it is because of the refresh command..both refresh(flush cache and the other one) seem to remove the selected files/folders from MC's 'memory' so the focus doesn't go to where it's supposed to be..

It seems that you made a typo..the one I see in beta is 'MC.Explorer.SetItemFocus', I don't see 'MC.Explorer.SizeItemFocus'..
Anyway, it seems that 'MC.Explorer.SizeFolder' functions well enough....thanks!

How about you limit the number of parallel processes to 2 or 3 or maybe a little higher so that they won't have very negative effect but at the same time improve the speed of calculation...

btw, how about my clarification about 'MC.Explorer.SizeFolders  ALL'...

Feature Requests and Suggestions / restart command
« on: March 26, 2013, 08:59:07 »
Please add a restart command for would also be better if everytime a change in setting requires restart of MC, users will be asked if they want to restart..users will choose between 'Yes' and 'No' buttons..upon pressing 'Yes' MC will automatically restart...there's no need to manually exit and click MC's icon in the desktop or taskbar..

It seems that calculation of folder sizes starts from top..when I tried calculating the folder sizes of my Drive (C) and sorted the folders in descending order so that Windows folder, the largest and takes longer time to calculate its size, is at the top, the other smaller folders didn't have their sizes displayed except after Windows folder size was displayed..if the calculation for all the sizes is parallel, then their sizes should have been   displayed ahead of Windows folder...

« on: March 26, 2013, 08:13:17 »
so there's no way to make them work?because they don't work...I've assigned Alt+L for delete, and I want Alt+; for copy and Alt+' for move. These are all file operations functions and I want their hotkeys to be near each other..not mentioning that they are near to the four arrow keys that I use for navigations..

The keys that are written in the customkeymappings.xml after restart are not ";" and "'" but "OEM1" and "OEM7"...they were changed!

« on: March 26, 2013, 07:53:33 »
if they aren't being updated, can I just type my hotkeys?I'm not sure though what 'extid' and 'ctrl' means, 'cmd' seems to be command, 'udc' is user defined command, 'key' is key, 'keymod' is whether 'Control'(C), 'Alt'(A), 'Shift'(S) is/are pressed. What does 'OEM2' means?It's a value of 'key'..

Script / Workaround with errors
« on: March 26, 2013, 07:45:38 »
      I made a workaround that lets me navigate as if there's a 'Computer' virtual folder. That is, I can go from Drive C to other Drives and vice versa using only the four arrow keys;left arrow key for going up (going to the parent) and right arrow key for going down(going to the focused subfolder).I'm comfortable with using just these four for navigation.
     What I did is I made folders named 'Local Disk (C)', 'Local Disk (D)'...etc in my Drive (E). I named others as 'Removable Disk (H)' and so on for external storage devices, then I made two user defined commands that do the going up and going down functions and assigned the previously mentioned keys to them. The 'go up' UDC checks if the current path is a root("C:\", "D:\"..etc). If it is, it goes to Drive (E) where the folders 'Local Disk (C)'...etc are..if not, it just simply goes to the parent of the current folder. The 'go down' UDC checks if the name of the folder in focus is the same with the folders I made in Drive (E). If it happens to be the same with one of them, it goes to the drive that corresponds to the name of the folder (that is, it goes to "C:\" if the folder's name is "Local Disk (C)"). If they aren't the same, it just opens the current focused folder. Obviously, this only works with the hotkeys I used. Using 'Enter' or the mouse will not yield the same result.
     Unfortunately, there are some issues that I'm experiencing with the scripts I made. They're not that significant but if there are ways to avoid
them then I'll gladly I want the scripts checked and any helpful idea and/or suggestion is welcome...
   BTW, these scripts also feature calculation of subfolders' sizes of the destination folder...
   I don't know why but I thought that to include '\' in a string you should write "\\". In my case, when I wrote "C:\\" to mean C:\, it didn't work
    the result was C:\\. So I just used "C:\" for C:\..the scripts are as follows..
Note: The comments in the scripts aren't included in the actual code
      I'm using Commander Style Look and Feel so entering a folder won't select anything and calculate folder sizes will work with all the
      folders in the current path.

Go Up:
Code: [Select]
    //Stop current background process
    MC.RunUserCmd ID=1f0dd40bcbe544ae882ee46bf77c115b;
    @var $path = GetSourcePath();
    @var $roots[] = {"C:\", "D:\", "E:\", "F:\", "G:\", "H:\", "I:\", "J:\", "K:\", "L:\"};
    @var $isroot = 0;
    @var $i;
    for ($i = 0; $i < 10; $i++)
        @var $str = $roots[$i];
        if (StrIsEqual($path, $str))
            $isroot = 1;
    //if current path is a root, then go to "E:\"
    if ($isroot == 1)
        MC.Explorer.Goto SOURCE="E:\";
    //else go to the parent folder
        //Go to parent folder
        MC.RunCmd ID=ExplorerPanel.41052;
    MC.RunCmd ID=ExplorerPanel.41060;
    //Calculate folders' sizes
    MC.RunCmd ID=ExplorerPanel.51010;
Go Down:   
    //Stop current background process
    MC.RunUserCmd ID=1f0dd40bcbe544ae882ee46bf77c115b;
    @var $folder = GetSourceFocusPath();
    @var $links[] = {"E:\Local Disk (C)", "E:\Local Disk (D)", "E:\Local Disk (E)", "E:\Local Disk (F)", "E:\Local DVD RW Drive (G)", "E:\Removable Disk (H)", "E:\Removable Disk (I)", "E:\Removable Disk (J)", "E:\Removable Disk (K)", "E:\Removable Disk (L)"};
    @var $roots[] = {"C:\", "D:\", "E:\", "F:\", "G:\", "H:\", "I:\", "J:\", "K:\", "L:\"};
    @var $i;                         
    for ($i = 0; $i < 10; $i++)
        @var $str = $links[$i];
        //if folder's name is Local Disk (C)...etc.., set $folder to corresponding root (C:\ for Local Disk (C), D:\ for Local Disk (D)..etc)
        if (StrIsEqual($folder, $str))
            $folder = $roots[$i];
    //Open path $folder
    MC.Explorer.Goto SOURCE={$folder}
    MC.RunCmd ID=ExplorerPanel.41060;
    //Calculate Folders' Sizes
    MC.RunCmd ID=ExplorerPanel.51010

    1) Some icons aren't properly displayed except after refresh or going back to the containing folder.
       Using the mouse, this problem doesn't exist. I thought it was because of the 'Refresh' so I removed it and tried.
       The result was the same so it isn't the culprit.
    2) If the same paths are displayed on the left and right panels, if you'll go down then go up (or go up then go down)
        the target panel will be refreshed but the sizes being displayed in the source panel won't be displayed (most of the
        time, and I believe this is because of the Refresh command. It affects not only the source panel but also the target).
        They'll only be displayed after you go up or go down again..I'm using refresh because if I won't, previous sizes of the
        folders will be displayed until the current calculate folders size process completes. I want to see the size column being
        populated in action and while calculation is in progress I prefer to see blank on the size column rather than the previously
        calculated size.
    3) Just a clarification, copy, move and delete functions aren't background processes right?I tried copying and navigating but the
       copying process didn't stop so I assume that they aren't background processes. If so, then I'll need to remove the 'stop background
       processes part' since I only intended to stop the background process made by visiting the previous folder so as to avoid performance
    4) 'Remember selected files/folders when changing path' doesn't work except for root directories. Upon entering a directory I've previously
        visited, the focus goes to the top. It doesn't goes back to the focused file/folder before.

I noticed that when renaming a .exe file, after pressing 'Enter' key the rename doesn't happen immediately(it freezes for a moment). And it seems that the delay is longer if there are many executable files in the folder..other file types seem to be renamed immediately..

Support and Feedback / hotkeys not working
« on: March 26, 2013, 07:15:27 »
I tried assigning the following hotkeys alt+;, alt+', alt+., alt+/ but after MC restart they didn't work anymore...I'm using Commander Style but I think this also persist even if you're using WE Style..other thing is maybe this only happens if you assign them to commands that have default hotkeys..I assigned alt+. for 'show properties' command which doesn't have default hotkey and it worked even after restart of MC..when I assigned it to other command that has default key there it failed..not sure though if this really is the case..

thanks for the tip!

'MC.Explorer.SizeFolders ALL' is a very welcome addition....!Can't wait!

Clarification: What you mean by 'MC.Explorer.SizeFolders ALL' is the sizes of all the subfolders of a directory will be calculated regardless of     selection. That is, even if there is only one folder selected, upon invoking this command the sizes of the folder selected and all other folders in the same directory will be calculated.Is that how it is?

Actually I need this because I made user defined commands(multi scripts) for going up (going to parent) and going down (opening a folder)..and assigned left arrow key for going up and right arrow key for going down since I want to navigate using keyboard. I extended the functionalities of each so that when going up or going down the sizes of the subfolders of the destination folder will be automatically calculated..what I did is upon opening the destination folder..I used 'Select All' command then used 'Calculate folder size' then 'Unselect All'..both work quite fine but the problem is I set the 'Remember selected files/folders when changing path' but because of 'Select All' and 'Unselect All' commands, the focus goes to the top when I go back to previous folder..there's no problem with 'going up', the problem is in 'going down'..maybe it would be better to see the scripts so I may post them in 'Scripts'
