Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all
v17.00.0010 - 2016-07-15 11:29     
    + SC getpathcomponent (gpc) enhanced: Now you can return the beginning or
      end of the input string depending on a new parameter "flags":
      Syntax: getpathcomponent([path], [component], [index=1], [flags])
        flags: (bit field)
          1 = Return from start
          2 = Return till end
      Remarks:
        These flags only apply if component is set to "component".
      Examples:
        text gpc("D:\Users\%USERNAME%\Music", "component", -2, 0);  //Donald
        text gpc("D:\Users\%USERNAME%\Music", "component", -2, 1);  //D:\Users\Donald
        text gpc("D:\Users\%USERNAME%\Music", "component", -2, 2);  //Donald\Music
    + SC CopyData enhanced: Added a mode to pass a location to another XYplorer
      instance.
      Syntax: copydata hwnd, data, mode
        mode:
            3: Pass the value of the data argument as location to another
               XYplorer instance. Whatever XYplorer accepts in the Address Bar
               is acceptable here.
      Examples:
        - Go to "C:\" in the XYplorer instance with hWnd 525048:
            copydata 525048, "C:\", 3;
        - Go to the current path of this instance:
            copydata 525048, <curpath>, 3;
        - Run a script (note that the command only returns when the script is
          completed in the other instance!):
            copydata 525048, 'echo "hi!";', 3;
    > Note for DEVELOPERS:
      The mode parameter in SC CopyData simply selects different dwData:
      - If called with mode 3 then
          cds.dwData == 4194307 (0x00400003)
          = Go to the location passed in cds.lpData.
      So any application can use these dwData values to trigger a
      specific reaction in XYplorer when it receives data via
      WM_COPYDATA.

To download the latest BETA version choose a download 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.

v17.00.0008 - 2016-07-14 19:22
    * Scripting: Normally in XYplorer, holding SHIFT while going to a new
      location will open that location in a new tab. This behavior is now
      suppressed when the location change is triggered by a script.
    ! Branch View: A Branch View triggered via /flat switch would be applied to
      any selected subfolder(s) instead of the folder passed with the switch.
      This should not happen. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Styles | Selections: Changing this setting would partly
      reset user-defined colors in ways that would make the contents of controls
      unreadable under certain conditions. Fixed.

    + SC savethumb: Added a variable as placeholder for the applied JPG quality.

    * Updated the help file.
    ! SC new: Would not create target folders on the fly for types "link",
      "hardlink", "symlink", or "junction". Fixed.

v17.00.0006 - 2016-07-13 12:35
    ! Various small issues with Live Filter Box related scripting and documentation:
      - SC Get('#675') is not documented.
      - SC Get('FocusedControl') returns 'X' for other which is acting per
        documented but less than ideal.
      - SC ControlAtPos() with the mouse over the Live Filter Box returns 'LFB',
        but this is not included as an option in the documentation.
      - SC ControlPosition('LFB') does not return anything even when LFB is
        visible.
      - SC Focus('LFB') focuses the tree instead of the LFB.
      All fixed.
    * Updated the help file.

    + SC savethumb: Now you can pass the desired JPG quality value in the format
      argument by simply appending the value to the format tag "jpg" (like with
      the ImageFromClipFormat tweak). Allowed values are 1 (lowest quality) thru
      100 (highest quality). The quality value only affects JPGs and is ignored
      for all other formats.
      Examples:
        savethumb(, "*_t", 750, , "jpg1", 7, 1);   //minimum quality (1)
        savethumb(, "*_t", 750, , "jpg001", 7, 1); //minimum quality (1), works as well
        savethumb(, "*_t", 750, , "jpg", 7, 1);    //good default quality (90)
        savethumb(, "*_t", 750, , "jpg100", 7, 1); //maximum quality (100)
      FYI, I raised the default JPG quality from 75 to 90. 75 was just too bad.
    ! Color Filters: A Boolean filter like "*.jpg and size: > 5 MB" was matching
      all folders > 5 MB (regardless of their name!) if folder sizes were shown.
      Fixed.

    * Tab Headers: Changed the part of the behavior advertised as "cool" in
      v5.50.0008 - 2007-01-06 12:26 because it's simply counterintuitive from
      today's (or probably any day's) POV. Now the path selected from the
      breadcrumb menu is injected into the right-clicked tab, not into the
      current tab.

    * SC obfuscate: Now you can obfuscate spaces or strings surrounded by
      spaces. Was not possible before.
      Example (to make spaces stand out rather than obfuscate them, in this
      case):
        obfuscate , chr(0x258E), " "; //0x258E = LEFT ONE QUARTER BLOCK
    * Softer (lighter) borders on various small lists and dropdowns.

    * Paper Folders: From now on, Global Visual Filters and Ghost Filters are
      not applied anymore to Paper Folders! Otherwise, any changes to a Paper
      Folder would/could not be saved anymore when a GVF or a GF is active.
      IMO, this change is not only necessary but also totally justified by the
      nature of Paper Folders. After all they are hand-picked collections of
      items that should really be spared from those global filters working in
      the background. If you wouldn't want those items in the Paper Folder you
      wouldn't have put them there in the first place, right?
    ! Paper Folders: A Paper Folder filtered by a Ghost Filter would forget all
      filtered out items when being saved. Fixed (via the change above).

    * Tools | Customize Tree: Removed style "Mark Favorites (Icon)" and replaced
      it by style "Solid Lines". If ticked then the node connecting lines in the
      tree are drawn solid instead of dotted, i.e. they are visually stronger.
      Of course, the style "Show Lines" has to be enabled as well else you get
      no lines at all.
    ! Paper Folder: A Paper Folder filtered by a Global Visual Filter and/or a
      Live Filter would forget all filtered out items when being saved. Fixed.

    ! UDC: Since the beep fix in v16.90.0314 you could not popup a scripted menu
      with a custom keyboard shortcut on keydown. Fixed.
      Notes:
      - As a probably welcome side effect of the fix the first menu item is now
        auto-selected.
      - If the custom keyboard shortcut is a single letter that acts as an
        accelerator for the given menu you will get an error and there is no way
        around it. In that case you should tick the "On KeyUp" checkbox. It's
        there exactly for this case.
