v22.10.0105 - 2021-08-20 11:04
    ! List: Switching to List view ended up in a half empty list pane when the 
      focused item was near the end of the list. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Thumbnail widths and heights: 192 
      was out of order in the thumbnail size drop down menu. Fixed for fresh 
      instances and for upgraders that did not tweak the sizes.
    ! Configuration: The undocumented Ctrl+Right-Click function to display 
      breadcrumb paths to each option has received some minor bugs recently. 
      Fix #2.
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.

Code: Select all

v22.10.0103 - 2021-08-19 13:27
    * Tree and List: Revised the changes from v21.60.0119 - 2021-04-01 13:15. 
      Now the Space key works again as a Type Ahead Find key also in the first 
      position of the filter/search pattern.
      If you prefer not to redirect the Space key you can use this tweak now:
        TAFgoLFBSkipSpaces=1
      Might raise this tweak to Configuration later.
    * Tweak TAFgoLFBSkipSpaces: Now it works independently of the current 
      selection state (which was just too complex a condition for muscle memory).
      BEFORE: don't redirect the Space key if it can select an item
      NOW:    don't redirect the Space key to the Live Filter Box
    * Type Ahead Find (Tree and List): Now a single Space key will work in TAF 
      just like any other key. To suppress this new behavior and go back to the 
      old one, you can use this tweak:
        TAFSkipSingleSpaces=1
    > List: If you want to select the currently focused item by keyboard and 
      Space would be redirected to the LFB or used in TAF, you can use Ctrl+Space 
      (which actually toggles the selection of the currently focused item).
    ! Configuration: The undocumented Ctrl+Right-Click function to display 
      breadcrumb paths to each option has received some minor bugs recently. 
      Fixed.
    ! Configuration Dialog: In a multi-monitor setup the dialog's size didn't 
      adjust to the monitor size if the dialog was positioned on a different and 
      smaller monitor than the main window. Fixed.
    ! Thumbnails and Tiles: Hovering the checkbox (in checkbox mode) was 
      processed as hovering the thumbnail. Not anymore. Now you won't get a 
      Hover Box in that moment.
    ! Thumbnails and Tiles: Hovering the Age Circle (if any) was processed as 
      hovering the thumbnail. Not anymore. Now you get the expected tooltip with 
      age information.
    ! Image Preview: When previewing images with more than 40 MB square pixels 
      you were getting black areas and a preview smaller than necessary. Fixed.
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.

    * Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Type Ahead 
      Find | Redirect typing to Live Filter Box: Undid the undoing of 
      v21.70.0001 - 2021-04-14 15:39. So now space keys are again treated like 
      other keys and are redirected to the Live Filter Box (however they cannot 
      be the first character of a filter pattern).
      If you prefer not to redirect space keys you can use this tweak now:
        TAFgoLFBSkipSpaces=1
    ! List | Tiles Views: With checkboxes enabled, mouse clicks or hovers on 
      items in the non-first columns were out of sync with reality since 
      20170719 (!), with the result that the checkboxes could not be checked, and 
      various click and hover effects would not happen when they should. Fixed.
    ! Tabs: The tab icon was not always updated immediately when a tab was 
      turned into a Paper Folder (since 20210712). Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.10.0101 - 2021-08-17 13:43
    + Toolbar | Column Layouts: Now you can show the column widths in true 
      pixels (as opposed to DPI-aware values) when you hold CTRL+SHIFT while 
      clicking any of the "Update..." items in the button's menu. Additionally 
      this mode will return only the visible columns, and the Size column will 
      return its actual width without graphic awareness (/g switch).
      FYI, internally the Column Layouts are based on DPI-aware values that work 
      the same across different screen resolutions.
    ! Breadcrumb Bars: Navigating within a junction jumped to the junction 
      target when "Configuration | General | Controls & More | Miscellaneous | 
      Resolve junctions" was ticked. Fixed. Now, regardless of this setting, it 
      always remains within the junction folder structure, just as it is 
      naturally expected.
    ! List Management dialogs: Moving an item past the top in a filtered list 
      crashed the app. Fixed.
    ! Tab Icons: Slightly wrong positions at higher screen resolutions. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    + SC automaxcolumn enhanced: Added parameter "keepempty". It allows you to 
      keep some pixels empty right of the last column. Can be useful e.g. to 
      allow lasso selection from the right when Full Row Select is enabled.
      Syntax: automaxcolumn [column], [switches], [minwidth=64], [keepempty], [pane=a]
        keepempty: Number of pixels to keep empty on the right.
      Example:
        automaxcolumn "name", , 175, 20;  //max Name, min width 175, keep empty 20

      column when you load a Column Layout via "View | Columns | Load Column 
      Layout..." or "Toolbar | Column Layouts".
    * Tweak ListAutoSizeSizeColumn: Now it also adjusts the width of the Size 
      column when you load a Column Layout via "View | Columns | Load Column 
      Layout..." or "Toolbar | Column Layouts".
    ! SC paperfolder: Adding items to a non-existing Paper Folder did not work 
      anymore since 20210310. For example:
        paperfolder("xy-20210801", "%windir%\notepad.exe", , "a");
      Fixed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v22.10.0012 - 2021-07-31 18:28
    + Added a tweak to automatically adjust the width of the Name column so that 
      it takes up all of the space not used by the other columns:
        ListAutoMaxNameColumn=1
      The feature automatically adjusts the width of the name column when you 
      change locations or switch tabs or change the size of the list area.
      Along with it comes another tweak where you can define a minimum width for 
      the Name column (factory default is 175 pixels):
        ListAutoMaxNameColumnMinWidth=175
      When this minimum width is reached a horizontal scrollbar will appear when 
      the other columns take more space or the list width is reduced.
      Quite likely, this tweak will be carried over to the GUI soon.
    + SC automaxcolumn: Now you can also pass the currently shown column name
      in the "column" argument. That's the localized name if you use a 
      non-English interface language, e.g.:
        automaxcolumn "Nombre";
    + SC autosizecolumns: Now you can also pass the currently shown column names 
      in the "columns" argument. That's the localized names if you use a 
      non-English interface language, e.g.:
        autosizecolumns "Nombre,Tamaño";

v22.10.0011 - 2021-07-30 16:43
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: AutomaxColumn
      Action: Adjusts the width of a column so that it takes up all of the 
              remaining space when all the other columns are visible without 
              scrolling horizontally.
      Syntax: automaxcolumn [column], [switches], [minwidth=64], [pane=a]
        column: Canonic name of the column to adjust (case-insensitive).
                Defaults to "Name".
        switches:
          a:  Autosize all columns first.
        minwidth: The column won't get smaller than this.
                  Defaults to 64 pixels.          
        pane:
          a: [default] active pane
          i: inactive pane
          1: pane 1
          2: pane 2
      Remarks:
        - For normal columns the canonic name is identical to their English name. 
          Referencing special columns is a bit harder. You can use this script to 
          learn about the canonic names of the currenly visible columns:
            text setcolumns();
        - The command is only effective in views with columns ("Details" and 
          "Details with Thumbnails").
        - The absolute hard minimal width for columns is 19 pixels. You cannot 
          go below that even if you try.
      Examples:
        automaxcolumn;                //max Name
        automaxcolumn "name";         //max Name
        automaxcolumn "comment";      //max Comment
        automaxcolumn "name", a;      //autosize first, then max Name
        automaxcolumn "name", , 175;  //max Name, keep at least a width of 175 pixels
      Note how you can nicely toggle the max width of two columns by alternating these lines:
        automaxcolumn "name", a;      //autosize first, then max Name
        automaxcolumn "comment", a;   //autosize first, then max Comment     
    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: AutosizeColumns
      Action: Adjusts the width of one or more columns to their content.
      Syntax: autosizecolumns columns, [pane=a]
        columns: comma-separated list of columns, identified by their canonic 
                 name (case-insensitive).
        pane:
          a: [default] active pane
          i: inactive pane
          1: pane 1
          2: pane 2
      Remarks:
        - For normal columns the canonic name is identical to their English name. 
          Referencing special columns is a bit harder. You can use this script to 
          learn about the canonic names of the currenly visible columns:
            text setcolumns();
        - The command is only effective in views with columns ("Details" and 
          "Details with Thumbnails").
      Examples:
        autosizecolumns "name";
        autosizecolumns "modified,size";
        autosizecolumns ":s-image.dimensions";  //special properties column
        autosizecolumns ":d-10";  //custom column
        autosizecolumns "Extra 1,Extra 3,Extra 5";  //some extra columns
    ! SC moveto, copyto, backupto: The on_collision parameter was not working as 
      it should since v22.00.0004 - 2021-07-02 15:39. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v22.10.0010 - 2021-07-29 11:03
    + Added tweak to always autosize the Size column. This is the column with 
      the most variable contents, the one that's typically always either too 
      wide or too narrow. This tweak will autosize the Size column when changing 
      locations or switching tabs.
        ListAutoSizeSizeColumn=1
      If Autosize Columns is enabled for the current list the tweak is ignored.
      If it proves successful the tweak will be added to Configuration later.
    ! Tab Icons: Did not support native and environment variables in the icon 
      spec anymore since the new total icon support. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Information | Tags | Options... | Database Check...: Since 
      v19.70.0112 - 2019-02-27 19:12 dupes were not removed correctly. Fixed.
    ! SC tab("move"): Position could end up one off since 20210713. Fixed.

    + SC popupmenu/popupnested enhanced: Experimentally now you can add custom 
      icons to script items in your scripted menu, at the second position and 
      identified by / as icon marker.
      That makes 3 possible syntaxes for script items (here assuming sep_item=";"):

        ::Caption;Script
        ::Caption;/Icon;Script

    + Tabs: Now you can freely choose almost anything for a tab's icon. In "View 
      | Tab | Rename Tab..." you can state an image file (GIF, JPG, PNG, ICO) or 
      non-image file (its system icon will be used) for the custom item icon 
      (appended to the name, separated by |). It can be a full path, or just a 
      filename (auto-resolved to the default icons path <xyicons>). Or you can 
      still specify an internal icon prefixed by ":", e.g. :dark.
    + SC inputselect enhanced: Added parameter "icon". Lets you add an icon to 
      the dialog's top section left of the dialog title. The icon spec can point 
      to an internal icon (eg ":dark"), to an image file (GIF, JPG, PNG, ICO), 
      or to any non-image file with a system icon you find useful (e.g. an EXE); 
      paths are auto-resolved to the default icons path <xyicons>.
      Syntax: inputselect(header, listdata, [separator="|"], [style=1], [cancel], _
