      now sorted *before* the unresolved ones (still showing the click symbol).
      Before, they had been sorted after the unresolved ones.
    ! Custom Columns: Pressing ESC on a click-triggered custom column script

v13.90.0111 - 2014-04-14 20:37
    + Tweak to define the file types that use IFilters on Content search. If the
      tweak is not set then all Web and Office file type are taken. For example,
      this would confine the use of IFilters to DOC and DOCX files:
        IFilterCustom=doc.docx
    * Updated the help file.
    ! Full Row Select did not play nicely with Click-triggered custom columns.
      Fixed.

    + SC SetColumns: Now you can reference Custom Columns by their caption.
      This example toggles a soft column at position 2 assigned to the first
      custom column named "View":
        setcolumns(":d-view", 8, 2);
    ! Popup menus popped by mousedown would not release on mouseup anymore since
      this change from v12.50.0001 - 2013-06-14 09:31:
        All right click menus now allow using the right click to trigger menu
        items.
      Major usability bug! Fixed. Removed the change.

    + MLS: Turkish is now supported. Status: 65% translated.
    * SC makecoffee: Now images are auto-positioned to be shown uncropped as far
      as necessary and possible.
    * Custom Columns: Now you can click-trigger a cell also in a non-focused
      list. Before, the first click on a non-focused list was eaten by the
      focusing.

    * SC makecoffee: Now the passed file is resolved relative to <xyscripts>.
      This example works if cup-of-tea-icon.png is in <xyscripts>:
        makecoffee "cup-of-tea-icon.png", , , 150, 150;
    % List: Reduced superfluous painting that had emerged recently on location
      change and tab switch. Result: Notably smoother browsing!

Code: Select all
v13.90.0107 - 2014-04-12 11:37
    * Custom Columns: When Custom Columns of type Script are triggered by Click
      and the script has no "return" command then the click symbol remains in
      the list and can be clicked again and again.
      And the list is not repainted after such a "no return" click so you can
      make coffee this way.
    ! Custom Columns: Click- and List-triggered columns were completely filled
      when showing them individually via Show Columns. Fixed.
    ! Custom Columns: List-triggered columns were completely filled if Autosize
      Columns was ON. Fixed.
    * SC makecoffee redesigned. No more stretchfactor, but now you can pass a
      limiting box where the image will be proportionally shrunk to fit if it is
      too large (note that it will not be enlarged to fill the box if it is
      smaller).
      Syntax: makecoffee [file], [x], [y], [maxwidth], [maxheight]
        x:    X position; randomized if missing
        y:    Y position; randomized if missing
        maxwidth:   maximum width to fit
        maxheight:  maximum height to fit
      Notes:
        Arguments "maxwidth" and "maxheight" are only applied if "file" is
        passed.
      Example:
        makecoffee "<xyscripts>\katy.png", , , 200, 150;

Code: Select all
v13.90.0106 - 2014-04-11 21:38
  +++ Configure Custom Column: Added option "Trigger". Here you can select at
      which point the script or process that generates the cell data is actually
      triggered. You have three choices:
      - Browse [Default]: When the list is filled with folder contents or search
        results.
      - List: When the items are listed. Only the currently visible items are
        processed. This option will be much faster than "Browse" on long lists,
        but the scrolling will be not as smooth.
      - Click: When the symbol that is shown as a placeholder is clicked
        (actually you can click anywhere in the cell). Maximum speed, also when
        scrolling. All data are only shown on demand.
      Notes:
      - When you right-click a column header and select Refresh Column then the
        whole column data will be generated/refreshed.
      - Columns of type "Mixed" inherit the trigger per-cell from the chosen
        sub-column.
      - The click symbol is currently identical to the "script" icon. I will use
        something else later.
      - The "Click" trigger, i.e. data on demand, can be used for doing
        incredible things via scripting, e.g. with the internet.
      - What's the market name of the feature? On Demand Columns (ODC)?
      It goes by itself that this is a revolutionary killer feature that's
      nothing but mind-blowing and full of crazy possibilities.

    + Configuration | Sort and Rename | Sort: Added option "Ignore articles when
      sorting". Elevates tweak SortIgnoreLeadingWords to UI.
      Still to be tweaked is which articles are ignored. This is the factory
      default:
        SortLeadingWordsToIgnore=a;an;the
    * Configuration Dialog: Organized the topics into seven sections, and
      shuffled them a bit around.
    + Toolbar | Branch View: Added toggle "Branch View Inherits Current Columns"
      (factory default ON) to the buttons right-click menu. Turn it off if you
      don't like it.
    * Configuration | Controls and More | Miscellaneous | Allow zombies in the
      Mini Tree: Now also affects drives, i.e. from now on also unvailable
      drives are added only if Zombies are allowed. Before, unvailable drives
      were always added to a Mini Tree.
    ! Large tooltips would flicker. Fixed #2. Now without cropping the tips.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0055.

        makecoffee "";

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v13.90.0103 - 2014-04-09 16:50
  $$$ Standard Licenses: Before, the Standard License was valid for one major
      version cycle of upgrades. Many users were unhappy with this (some
      irrationally thought it would be better if I worked slower so they would
      get free upgrades for a longer time) or simply did not understand it.
      From now on, the Standard License is valid for *one year* of upgrades! This
      (given the current pace of development) means roughly a doubling of
      upgrades for the same price.
      Since nobody will possibly object this change in licensing I have
      implemented it for all Standard Licenses bought within the last year,
      i.e. from v12.40 (released 2013-04-30) onwards. So, a Standard License
      purchased for v12.40 will be valid for the current beta version and
      probably also for v14.00!
    * SC listfolder and listpane enhanced: Added flag to return the count
      instead of the items.
        flags: (binary field)
         32: ReturnCount (= return the count instead of the items)
      Example:
        echo listfolder(, "*.jpg", 1 + 32); //count of *.jpg files in current folder
    * SC listfolder enhanced: Added flag to easier handle square brackets.
      In analogy to SC listpane.
        flags: (binary field)
         16: NoCharacterLists (= handy to match open square brackets)
      Examples:
        inputselect("Test", listfolder(, "[e]", 0));  // match all *e*
        inputselect("Test", listfolder(, "[e]", 16)); // match all *[e]*
    + SC FolderSize enhanced: Now it can be used non-recursive.
      Syntax: foldersize([folder], [template="<d>|<f>|<b>"]), [recursive=1])
        recursive:  0 = non-recursive
                    1 = recursive
      Example:
        echo foldersize(,,0); //current folder non-recursive
    * SC makecoffee enhanced: Now you choose what is served!
      Syntax: makecoffee [file], [stretchfactor=1]
        file: Full path to image file to draw.
              Should support transparency, e.g. PNG.
              If missing the internal cup of coffee is used.
        stretchfactor: can be used to shrink or enlarge the image.
      Example:
        makecoffee "E:\Test\tea.png", 1/5;
    * Find Files | Contents: Now where IFilters fail for whatever reason the
      logic falls back to the old way and checks the raw bytes for contents.
    % Configuration dialog loads faster now.
    ! Floating Preview: With Cyclic Navigation enabled keys Left and PageUp did
      not cycle. Fixed.

v13.90.0102 - 2014-04-08 21:26
  +++ Find Files | Contents: Added support for IFilters. IFilters are used to
      extract pure text from complex files. So now you can search the contents
      of file types like DOC, DOCX, PDF, or HTML.
      Notes:
      - IFilters are not used when either "It's a hex string" or "Match unicode"
        are ticked.
      - It depends on your system which IFilters are available. In the web you
        can find IFilters for almost anything.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v13.90.0101 - 2014-04-08 15:59
    + Scripting got a new function.
      Name: ExtractText
      Action: Extracts pure text from complex files.
      Syntax: extracttext([file])
        file:   File to extract text from.
                Defaults to the current file.
        return: Extracted text.
      Notes:
        This function makes use of IFilters. It depends on your system which
        ones are available. On my system (Win 8.1) it works just fine with DOC
        and DOCX (although no Word installed!), PDF, HTML, ODT and more.
      Examples:
        text extracttext("E:\Test\test.pdf");
        text extracttext("E:\Test\test.doc");
        text extracttext("E:\Test\test.htm");
    + Scripting got a new function.
      Name: FolderSize
      Action: Counts subfolders, files, and bytes in a folder (recursive).
      Syntax: foldersize([folder], [template="<d>|<f>|<b>"])
        folder:   Folder to investigate.
                  Defaults to the current list path.
        template: Format of the returned string.
                  <d> is replaced by the folder count.
                  <f> is replaced by the file count.
                  <b> is replaced by the byte count (formatted, rounded up).
                  <r> is replaced by the byte count (raw, exact).
                  Defaults to "<d>|<f>|<b>".
        return: (depends on the template)
      Notes:
        This can take time with huge folders. The process can be stopped by ESC.
      Examples:
        echo foldersize();
        echo foldersize("<xyscripts>");
        echo foldersize("<xyscripts>", "<b>");  //return just the bytes
        echo foldersize("<xyscripts>", "<r>");  //return just the raw bytes
        echo foldersize(, "Folders: <d><crlf>Files: <f><crlf>Bytes: <b>"); //friendly
    ! SC SetColumns: The toggle function (flag 8) modified the original column
      order. Fixed.

        position:    Position where the column(s) should be placed.
                     0 = (default) append the column(s)
                     1 = first position

                    -1 = pre-last position
      Examples:     
        setcolumns(":v-dimensions", 8, 1); //toggle Dimensions column, first position
        setcolumns(":v-dimensions", 8, 2); //toggle Dimensions column, second position
        setcolumns(":v-dimensions", 8, -1); //toggle Dimensions column, pre-last position
    * Custom Copy | Overwrite Prompt: Removed excessive white space where no
      image preview is shown.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0054.

    ! Floating Preview: Certain types of UDCs would not be triggered by keyboard
      when the Floating Preview was opened and focused, and "Allow Custom
      Keyboard Shortcuts in Preview" was enabled. This was ultimately caused by
      the scope restrictions of those UDCs. Fixed. See next paragraph for how
      the fix was done.
    * User-Defined Commands: Now there are no scope restrictions anymore for
      UDCs. All UDCs have global scope now, i.e. they work independently of
      which control is currently focused.
    ! Folder View Settings: "Auto-save changes" did not work well with toggling
      Branch View for a while. Fixed #2.
