Make Version and Meta data selectable...

Post by GUIguy »

Sometimes it's necessary to copy, for example, a file's version number.

If you made that text selectable, not necessarily editable, that would make it more convenient and error-free than retyping the numbers.

Thanks!

Right-click the Meta tab, select "Show in Popup".

That's a helpful tip, but when I right-click the Meta tab in the Info Panel nothing happens. There's no "Show in Popup." There's nothing.

Not the header, the body.

Ahhh ... thank you. But you -did- say "Right-click the Meta tab"

I thought the whole thing is the tab, and what you call tab I call tab header :)

Given that your English is better than that spoken by most of the people here in the US, it comes down to semantics. Which is fine now that I know how you're using the term. :-)

My sense is that your English was pretty damn good before AI became a thing.

Hi GUIguy,

a)

maybe try in the address bar:

::text property("Name") . "<br>" . property("FileVersion") . "<br>" . property("ProductVersion")

==> a dialog is displayed. For xyplorer.exe for example:

Code: Select all

XYplorer.exe
25.80.0.7
25.80.0007
b)

Or try

::copytext property("Name") . "<br>" . property("FileVersion") . "<br>" . property("ProductVersion")

==> same info is copied to the clipboard. Check it with

::#216

c)

Context menu > To Clipboard > Compact File Info

==> XYplorer.exe, 11.718.656 bytes, 01.04.2024 18:14:20, ver 25.80.0007


Context menu > To Clipboard > Compact File Info

==>

Code: Select all

Name: XYplorer.exe
DOS name: XYPLORER.EXE
File version: 25.80.0.7
...
Product Version: 25.80.0007
...
File version: 25.80.0.7
Prod. version: 25.80.0.7
...
Best regards, Markus
