Comment alert

Here is the problem: I have zillions of files and only a few (0.1%) have xyplorer comment tags. The issue is that because comments are rare I usually miss them (unless I search for files with comments which involves a deliberate act). I could show the comments as a column, but that involves a lot a screen real-estate even if I only show the first few letters of the comment. It also doesn't exactly jump out.

What I want is a narrow custom column that shows some sort of alert (like a big red dot or paperclip) if there is a comment. Alternatively I could color highlight the item but that wouldn't work that well as a sole mechanism given other reasons I highlight whole items (labels or custom highlighting for image aspect ratio), but having the alert icon and a colored whole item would be better still.

Any (ideally very fast) script to do?

Fast enough?

Code: Select all

if (property("#Comment", <cc_item>)) { return "> 12, FF0000, 255"; }
Ofc the "Format:" for the custom column needs to be of type "Icon"...

Well that was fast :!: - though I meant speed of script execution. Many thanks!
