Code: Select all

v23.30.0208 - 2022-07-26 14:20
    + Rocker-Click: Now it also works on Tree nodes (pops reduced/fast context menu) and 
      Status Bar (pops "Copy Status to Clipboard").
    + Tree: Added a tweak to completely disable expanding/collapsing nodes in the Tree:
        LockTreeNodes=1
      It affects all sorts of clicking and keyboard actions in the tree, including context 
      menu commands related to expansion. Can be useful as a radicalization of View | Lock 
      Tree.
    ! Configuration | General | Tree and List | List | Show item count with folder sizes: 
      Non-calculated folders were wrongly shown as "empty" in the status bar when selected 
      and focused. Fixed.
    ! View | Views | Details with Thumbnails: There was a blind spot between "Thumbs" and 
      "Name" column where Hover Highlighting disappeared. Fixed.
:info: To update to this BETA version from XYplorer, hold down the CTRL key while you click Help | Online Support | Check for Updates. To download it, choose a package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

:!!: Note that BETA versions are work in progress and might contain fresh bugs. You have been warned. It's a good idea to backup your complete XYplorer settings (menu File | Settings Special | Backup Application Data Folder...) before running a new BETA version. This will also help in fixing any fresh bugs.

v23.30.0209 - 2022-07-27 15:34
    + Tree | Expansion Icons: Their Ctrl+Right-Click context menu now features the "Lock 
      Tree" toggle (same as "View | Lock Tree") and the new "Lock Expansion State" toggle, 
      which raises tweak LockTreeNodes to UI.
    * Lock Expansion State (previously tweak LockTreeNodes): Now this setting only takes 
      effect if "Lock Tree" is enabled as well, so it only works as a radicalization of 
      "Lock Tree".
    * Updated the help file.

    + Tools | Customize Tree: Added toggle "Lock Expansion State". Tick it to completely 
      disable expanding/collapsing nodes in the Tree.
    * Lock Expansion State: The logical binding to Lock Tree added this morning has been 
      removed.
    - Tree | Expansion Icons: Removed the new context menu items added this morning.
    - Removed tweak LockTreeNodes. Now it's handled by Tools | Customize Tree | Lock 
      Expansion State.
    * Updated the help file.

v23.30.0212 - 2022-07-28 10:13
    + SC ThumbsConf enhanced. Added fields "ShowIcon" and "ShowDimensions" to the 
      "settings" argument:
      Syntax: thumbsconf([settings="ShowCaption,ZoomToFill,Style,Padding,Transparency,ShowIcon,ShowDimensions"], [separator=","])
        settings:
          ShowIcon: 0 or 1 or ! (toggle 0/1)
                    = Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show file icon on thumbnail
          ShowDimensions: 0 or 1 or ! (toggle 0/1)
                    = Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show dimensions of original image on thumbnail
      Examples:
        thumbsconf(",,,,,0"); //ShowIcon off
        thumbsconf(",,,,,1"); //ShowIcon on
        thumbsconf(",,,,,!"); //toggle ShowIcon
        thumbsconf(",,,,,,0"); //ShowDimensions off
        thumbsconf(",,,,,,1"); //ShowDimensions on
        thumbsconf(",,,,,,!"); //toggle ShowDimensions
      Note that thumbsconf() now returns 7 values, e.g.:
        echo thumbsconf(); //1,0,0,4,0,0,0
    * Tools | Customize Tree | Lock Expansion State: Now the Expansion Icons take a 
      special form if the expansion state is locked.
    * Updated the help file.

    * Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Context Menus | Folder Tree...: 
      The expansion altering commands in the "Expansion" submenu now even work on LES (Lock 
      Expansion State), but only when called via this menu. So you have a chance to alter 
      a locked expansion state without unlocking it first.
      And I added (unfortunately after releasing MLS 8.149) the simple "Toggle Expansion" 
      command which does the same as clicking an expansion icon.

    + Tree: Now when you hold SHIFT, right-click on empty will pop the "Tools | Customize 
      Tree..." menu. Gives you quick access to these settings.
      This is done only if CEA "Right-click on white in folder tree" is not set to "Run 
      script". Reason: Scripts might want to make use of that modifier key.

    + Paste and Go: Now you can also paste relative paths. They will be resolved relative 
      to the current list path.
      Note, however, that the relative path must contain at least one backslash or forward 
      slash to ensure it is a path and not a "Paste and Find" pattern.
    ! Folder Thumbnails: Since 20220718 getting a thumbnail for a folder named e.g. "[_AV" 
      (opening square bracket without a closing square bracket) would raise error 93 
      (Invalid pattern string). Fixed.
    ! MLS: Probably since 20220201 the on-the-fly language switch did not work for all 
      toolbar buttons anymore. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v23.40.0002 - 2022-08-02 12:15
    + Hamburger, SC popupmenu, SC popupnested: A new alternative item syntax is supported, 
      where you can define the item separator per item, and have script items with a 
      custom caption, icon, and mouse-over-status.
      Defining the separator: If the second character of the item definition is ">" then 
      the first character is the separator.
      The icon and status fields are optional. Theses are the three general forms:
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Definition                        Default values for non-defined fields
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        |>caption|::script                icon = script icon; status = the script
        |>caption|::script|icon           status = the script
        |>caption|::script|icon|status
        ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Or using e.g. / as separator:
        />caption/::script            
        />caption/::script/icon       
        />caption/::script/icon/status
      Example definitions as used in Hamburger:
        |>Green|::tag 4
        |>Blue|::tag 5|:labels
        |>Purple|::tag 6|:labels|make it purple
      Example for popupnested (here you can pass the separator, no need to prefix it):
        $menu = <<<MENU
          Green|::tag 4|kiss.ico
          Blue|::tag 5|heart.ico
          MENU;
          $command = popupnested($menu,,,,,,,|);
    + List: Added tweak to control whether the focused element within a multi-selection is 
      drawn slightly lighter to make it stand out.
        ListHighlightFocusedSelection=1
      By factory default and for upgraders it is set to 1. So nothing will change for 
      anybody unless you actively tweak it.

v23.40.0003 - 2022-08-02 19:22
    + Cache Folder Sizes: Added a tweak to control which subfolder sizes are automatically 
      added to the cache while a folder size is calculated.
        CacheFolderSizesAutoAddFrom=256   //auto-add subfolders containing at least 256 items
        CacheFolderSizesAutoAddFrom=0     //auto-add all subfolders
        CacheFolderSizesAutoAddFrom=-1    //do NOT auto-add any subfolders
      Notes:
        - This tweak only concerns the levels beyond the first sublevel of the folder 
          being calculated. Subfolders directly below the folder being calculated are 
          always auto-added.
        - Empty subfolders are never auto-added.
        - The previously hard-coded value of 256 is now the factory default (and the value 
          for upgraders). The idea here is to limit the size of the cache by only 
          auto-caching larger folders that are actually worth caching.
    * View | Sort By | Random Order: Now, experimentally, if "Configuration | General | 
      Sort and Rename | Sort | Sort folders apart" is enabled then only the order of the 
      files is randomized whereas the other items (folders or drives) are kept on top in 
      alphabetically ascending order.
    % Special Columns for Hash: These calculations can take a while when dealing with huge 
      files. Now the app will be more responsive while the calculations are in progress 
      and you can stop them instantly at any time by pressing ESC.
    ! Hamburger: The new prefixed separator syntax failed when it was used in the very 
      first item. Fixed.

    * Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show dimensions of original image on 
      thumbnail: Previously the dimensions were not shown for thumbs that were smaller 
      than 32 pixels in any dimensions. Now the dimensions are shown for all thumbs, no 
      matter how small.
      Also improved the placement of the dimensions label.
    ! Color Filters: Property-driven color filters (eg B:prop:#empty:2|s) were not always 
      auto-updated in Tree when necessary. Fixed.
    ! SC renameitem: Overwriting with flag 8 (Silent overwrite on name collision) 
      did not work for folders, just for files. Fixed. Now it works, but only if the 
      overwritten folder is empty. For example, this will work if the folder 
      "ExistingFolder" is empty:
        renameitem("ExistingFolder", , 8); //rename selected folder to "ExistingFolder"

    + 32-bit Shell Context Menu: Since 20220729 you could not select a menu item by 
      right-click anymore. Didn't think anyone would care. Well, it's back. Mysteriously 
      (it's clearly not a Windows standard) many users seem to love it.
    + 64-bit Shell Context Menu: Now also this menu supports right-click selection. That 
      was never possible before.

v23.40.0006 - 2022-08-05 20:18
    + SC property enhanced: Added argument #contains.[pattern] to return whether a folder 
      contains files matching a simple wildcard pattern. Contains here means: in the 1st 
      level, not within any subfolders. The pattern can contain the wildcards * and ?.
      Return values:
      - Folder does not contain matching files: 0
      - Folder contains matching files: 1
      - Item is not a folder: 2      
      For example, this would be a Color Filter definition to match all folders in Tree 
      and List that contain a file "desktop.ini" (yes, the pattern can be without wildcards):
        B:prop:#contains.desktop.ini:1
      And this would match all folders containing any JPG files:
        B:prop:#contains.*.jpg:1
      And this would match all folders NOT containing any JPG files:
        B:prop:#contains.*.jpg:0
      Note that you cannot have sequences of patterns:
        B:prop:#contains.*.jpg;*.png:1  //NOPE, DOES NOT WORK!
      Instead you have to do it this way:
        B:prop:#contains.*.jpg:1;B:prop:#contains.*.png:1 //works
      Of course, it does not have to be Color Filters. In a Quick Search, e.g., this will 
      find all folders containing TXT files:
        prop:#contains.*.txt:1
      And so on. Find Files, Live Filter Box, Visual Filters, Instant Color Filters ...

    + Thumbnails: Added a tweak (but see SC ThumbsConf below) to overlay the filename on 
      the thumbnail like subtitles in a movie.
        ShowSubtitles=1
      That way you can hide the captions (Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show 
      caption), save screen space, and still see the filenames.
      - Note that the subtitles are provided only for items that have a thumbnail.
      - It's done only in the three Thumbnails views, not in Tiles or Details with Thumbs.
      - The max number of lines is controlled by "Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | 
        Caption lines". The overlay height will then adjust to the lines needed.
      - With small thumbnails and long filenames you will, of course, meet the limits of 
        this concept.
      - The dimensions on "Show dimensions of original image on thumbnail" are appended to 
        the subtitle in parentheses.
    + SC ThumbsConf enhanced. Added field "OverlayCaption" to the "settings" argument:
      Syntax: thumbsconf([settings="ShowCaption,ZoomToFill,Style,Padding,Transparency,ShowIcon,ShowDimensions,OverlayCaption"], [separator=","])
        settings:
          ShowSubtitles: 0 or 1 or ! (toggle 0/1)
                    = Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Overlay caption (PLANNED)

    + Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Show dimensions of original image on 
      thumbnail: Now it's also done for videos.
    + Thumbnails: Added a tweak to customize the subtitle and dimensions overlays. You can 
      define the text color (RRGGBB), the back color (RRGGBB), and opaqueness (0-255), 
      where 0 is fully transparent and 255 is fully opaque.
      Example for a dark-grey on semi-transparent white overlay:
        ThumbsOverlaySpecs=333333,FFFFFF,128
      The current factory default is FFFFF,000000,80, but you won't see it in the tweak. 
      It is used for each field that's missing in the tweak.
      More examples:
        ThumbsOverlaySpecs=,FF0000,     //just make the background red
        ThumbsOverlaySpecs=,,0          //just completely remove the background
    % Experimentally reduced paint work in the list and hence an erratic flicker when 
      switching list views or using SC thumbsconf.
