Re: Session Manager [v6.20]

Fantastic script! Takes complicated workflows to a different level. I don't think there is anything like this in the world.

Running 6.20 here.

I was wondering though if there is an option to save the session on quitting XYplorer? I have about 12+ different XYplorers open with different sessions for different projects opened automatically on startup and at the end I'm fine with updating all of them with their current states but there is no option to do that automatically is there? Sort of autosave for every session where it would be auto saved on close.

Else is there a way to assign a keybord shortcut to the button "Update Session (and layout)"? That way i can quickly update and close every opened XYplorer.

Thank you!

Hi’

Glad you find Session Manager useful ! BTW, I rather agree with your first sentence… :biggrin:
(Well, all thanks to XYplorer in the first place !)

Regarding your request, there’s already something technically feasible, although more of an unsatisfying workaround: using different INI (hence data folders) for each of your XYplorer windows. Unfortunately, that would mean a lot of maintenance to synchronize all data folders…

Now, for a proper solution, what you would need would be:
   1. a way to update sessions outside of Session Manager (via scripting, CKS…)
   2. a way to execute such a command when XYplorer exits

>

   1. I thought this could already be done! Well, I’ll add this command in the next update…
   2. I thought this too could already be done! My memory must be playing tricks on me (all I could find was this thread Feature request: application start/exit-time script). Maybe others will know a way or a workaround…

In any case, you should pretty soon be able to use a keyboard shortcut to update your active session.

And if anyone has another idea/request to add to the update, now is the time to dive in!

What, wait, whaaaat???
Thanks for pointing this out, and for the details in the video!

Indeed!…
I downloaded the latest XYplorer beta and confirm the bug with XY v20.40.0015, whereas everything’s working perfectly with v20.40.

Same behavior occurs with other scripts:
It seems XYplorer now has a problem finding some (but not all) hidden "_subs".

Investigating, will keep you updated as soon as possible…

Edit:
Bug was introduced with version v20.40.0001, but why??? A buggy :bug: slipped with the namespace change, or some undisclosed trick…

Code: Select all

v20.40.0001 - 2019-09-11 19:45
    + File Namespaces: Support for more odd file namespaces. The following 
      weirdos now work when you paste them into the Address Bar:
        file://\\127.0.0.1\c$\Users
        file://\\[COMPUTERNAME]\c$\Users
        file://\\?\UNC\LOCALHOST\c$\Users
        file://\\?\C:\Users
      For what it's worth...
    ! Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | General | Fit width only: 
      Vertical panning on the Floating Preview was too fast. Fixed.
———————————————————————————

TLDR; To sum up the problem:
Since XYplorer v20.40.0001, numerous scripts stop with a similar error message:

Code: Select all

The list of labels did not match any script in Script file 'D:\Temp\XYbeta\Data\Scripts\PowerFilter.xys'.
sub
_Settings
I’ll let it rest a bit and submit as a bug later if needs be. :maf:

Hey Don, confirmed. I'm receiving error messages on my Thumbnail Maintenance script as well.

Code: Select all

The script is terminated now.

Please try again with v20.40.0015.

In the meantime I will for now remove that "A user function of the same name already exists!" message and not terminate the script (and not add the function). The error message was probably poorly implemented.

You are getting "The list of labels did not match any script" in that version?

Yes, in the SessionManager script I'm getting,

Code: Select all

The list of labels did not match any script in Script file 'D:\Tools\XYplorer\Scripts\SessionManager.xys'.
sub
_Layout-Save
I'm getting the error I mention above in my post viewtopic.php?f=7&t=8691&start=390#p172874. I'm also getting this one in SammaySarkar's Sticky Tree script

Code: Select all

Resource does not contain any valid scripts.

The script is terminated now.

Beta 20.40.0016 fixed the issues in 3 different scripts that I referred to above. :tup:

A confirmation from me too that, with 20.40.0016, the "labels did not match any script" and "resource does not contain any valid scripts" are both gone (from interrupting inadvertently).

Special thanks Don for the quick fix! :)

What??? But how on earth do you manage to work without Session Manager!? :mrgreen:


Edit: Oh dear… I’d seen some orange color and my vision/brain made me think it was the admin’s comment! Hence my bewilderment…
My apologies Don! I should get some rest… :ninja:
