[request] Lastaccess/lastwrite Columns

Recommended Posts

r00t    0

Hi all Devs,

 

Looks like after 2 years, this is still not implemented :rolleyes:

Can't you just take code from DN OSP? NDN can already sort by last Access/Write, so it can't be that hard to add values to new column...

... or is it? Too bad NDN source code is not available, I would implement it by myself and send you the patch.

 

Otherwise NDN is pretty cool, keep the good work!

Hi r00t.

 

True, this is still not implemented but on my long todo list

(search for "to do list" in whatsnew.txt...):

+ add Creation/LastAccess date/time to FilePanel display

 

Problem with the additional times/dates is that we are running out of

suitable character IDs (in file panel hit ALT-K and F1 to get an overview over

all the column identifiers).

 

Maybe it needs to be rewritten to support not only single characters but words.

 

I cannot promise anything, sorry.

 

DNOSP code is almost 100% incompatible to NDN by now.

And the source code is available for people who ask for it. :)

 

All the best,

Stefan / AH

Hi AH,

 

What about start using uppercase/lowercase letter pairs for some columns?

T = time, t = date

I = process ID, i = parent PID

C = last access time, c = acc. date

W = last write time, w = wr. date

etc...

 

I haven't wrote anything in Pascal for long time, however I was trying to fix

some bugs in OSP few years back - before I moved to NDN, so I can try to

implement this.

Hi!

 

What about start using uppercase/lowercase letter pairs for some columns?

T = time, t = date

I = process ID, i = parent PID

C = last access time, c = acc. date

W = last write time, w = wr. date

etc...

This sounds ok on first read, but I can only find out if this is "future" proof when I

actually start working on this...

 

But even worse, it's not compatible to existing configurations:

- we can not change any of the currently used character combinations because

it will break all user's configurations

- the remaining 14 characters are probably future proof, they just don't

match their meaning anymore:

T = Time, D = Date

c = Creation Time, X = Creation Date

 

So yes, we can use case sensitivity here, if we don't change the existing combinations.

If I have to think more about this I must start implementing it right away,

and I don't want to do that right now, since there are more important things to do.

 

I haven't wrote anything in Pascal for long time, however I was trying to fix

some bugs in OSP few years back - before I moved to NDN, so I can try to

implement this.

No problem, if you want the sources email me.

I will send you the sources from the next release (I have already changed too much

files for the nexzt release).

 

There are a few other todo's that need to be done concerning the column handling...

Even if it's easy to implement (it is), I must carefully test it etc, even if you do the actual coding.

I have to update the help etc.

And, when I merge in your code I probably will find this or that detail that needs to be

touched too then.

So, it will be quite some work for me anyway.

 

Please note what I wrote here:

Maybe this will be added with the next release...
