"Very nice!" Actually, I had checked the "Beveled border" option cause I liked it better that way, but with new tabs it does looks better unchecked, so now I'm using the complete new look (and I like it) 8)
Well done!

Even though I *was* against the flat style, I have to agree with Jacky here. :shock:

Really like the new borders, and something I also really appreciate is the ability to look at the title bar and know exactly which version of XYplorer I'm using. I'm a beta follower, so that's essential when learning and studying changes/new features.

Code: Select all

  +++ Another milestone on the long and winding road to superior 
      productivity and file management fun: User-Defined Commands (UDC)! 
Oh yeah, those look damn cool! And your decision to go menu-wise was a really good one IMO.
I'm already all excited & can't wait for more commands to show up :D

Once again, very nicely done, Don!

Code: Select all

      - I took the chance to open the door to one of the next big 
        XY features: scriptability! Internally the UDCs are already 
        processed as scripts.

Contrary to my original plans (then called "Scriptable Hotkeys") I
did not implement them key-based but menu-based.
I was getting worried - no betas, life became boring and then...

Great! I am so glad you went down the menu route - for those of us who are not coding every day it is refreshing to have a 'helping hand' guide you through and accomplish a result without pain.

This really is a major step forward and I hope there are many legs to this 'menu approach' to build in powerful user routines without the skill and knowledge of the technical competent. Much appreciated, thanks.

User-Defined Commands -- WOW!

Post by zridling »

Once again, Don, you have blown my mind and shown that you're way, way ahead of my wildest imagination for such a feature. Thank you for taking the time to incubate this idea; it truly is intuitive as you say. And for those using short catalogs, this feature allows you to bypass it if you choose, in favor of a direct keyboard shortcut.

Es ist unglaublich!

I have a Lifetime license, but this is why I like the donation link. So if you have an extra €/$5 or more laying around, consider throwing it at Don!

I'm having a feeling that some of the 6.50.0001 features will go right over a number of users heads... :wink:
Because a bit of it still has me going "huh?" and I thought I was pretty good at this stuff! :roll:
Still spending WAY TOO much time here! But it's such a pleasure helping XY be a treasure!
(XP on laptop with touchpad and thus NO mouse!) Using latest beta vers when possible.

:) The nice thing is: you don't need to learn all this. It's just a nice option. It does not even have any interface that clutters the vision. And users can easily exchange commandlines which you then just have to copy+paste.

I was trying to use the XYplorerFree and realized how much has been added since Jan2007. Though I once used and enjoyed that version I cant imagine going back because of so many cool features now like CKS, UDC to name a few.
WOW!! Now thats a lot of hard work for a one man enterprise. I wish there were more DONs, :lol: .
Thanks Don! I am having great fun. Happy coding. :wink:
