TabColor based on location

I know it has been mentioned in a forum and will hopefully be inbuilt into XY, but here is a quick fix // Custom Column Script (Add New Column, set column as script, add script below) $isSet="false"; // \folder|backcolor|forecolor|caption // each location to be checked is separated by the ^ char $fo...

Paste as shortcut from a url or list of URLs

From time to time I copy a URL from IE/Chrome and want to create a shortcut for this web address. xy shows the paste option but returns "nothing to paste" in the "paste special" the "Paste as Shortcut(s)" is disabled. If xy can check on Pasting if the clipboard has http? or [drive]:\folder\file.txt ...

Paper folder zombies with offline devices

Hi Admin/Don, Just wondering if you could build in a tweak to assume all paper folder items (or per paperfolder file?) are zombies i.e. I have created paper folders of 50+ items, but might be offline when I what to find out which device has them stored so I can turn on that particular device to acce...

Pasting a new junction point

If I copy a folder, then paste special \ paste as junction.
Adjust the filename so that it ends with a space.

XY creates a the folder without the space at the end, and then shows a error message:
Create junction failed - the system cannot find the file specified

Re: Modifying a script with a embeded function

Guess its easier editing in notepad++ rather than editing directly in XY (non resizable window, no highlighting etc.), and all the scripts are usually in one place for easy management as I use a beta XY and a normal version (as well as different machines) thus using the same scripts not specific to ...

Modifying a script with a embeded function

Does XY cache the code of a function based on its name? I have a script used in a custom column, called via load "script" that has a function (no include statements or anything in the script). When I modify the script the function does not adapt to the changes I made to the script file. If I change ...

Re: Global Protected Folders

Thanks Highend, another bit of the help I hadn't read. Not 100% of my request, it would protect the folder from normal browsing, but doesn't allow it to be listed i.e. I would like a read only for a specific folder or folder tree. but perhaps future customisation at the folder level in the admin.ini...

Re: Docked custom copy

Nice idea, I guess XYcopy.exe is already communicating with XY when new background jobs are created so hopefully this wouldn't be to difficult for Don to implement, although keeping XY up to date may slow it down (probably not by much)

Global Protected Folders

I know Ghost Filters is a brilliant way of hiding folders etc., but I would like a global protected folder list that stops xy from deleting, moving, copying, renaming files into the folders listed. i.e. like a CDROM, maybe a list of folders that has a bit to determine if you can delete, rename, copy...

Re: Enhance - Move Here to New Subfolder

That seems to be limited to 4 items, would be nice if it could read the current folder list and have them in the list.

File Event Notifications

Would it be possible to add some ability for a script to be called when a file is renamed, deleted, created/copied by XY i.e. I would like XY to call a script when a file is renamed thus an associated file can be renamed at the same time. alternatively XY could send a message to another windows app ...
