PFull task should named after filename

Post by loth » Fri Sep 09, 2005 4:03 pm

hi all,

when viewing a pic in fullscreen and using ALT+TAB to toggle between some other windows-tasks, i see the xnview task named "PFull" (i.e. in the taskbar/task-selector).

this is ugly ;-O

1)
it would be more informative, if the task were named with the current viewed filename.

so "PFull" would be "harry_potter_nude.jpg" or something... ;>


2)
also, it would be nice to customize that. i.e.

options:
show taskname like:
( ) filename
( ) filename.ext
(.) dir/filename.ext
( ) pfull

any suggestions?

I fully agree. A decent name should be used, I suggest "XnView - <filename>" like in View mode.

I think that providing options would be a clear overkill, here. We are speaking of a name displayed in the taskbar, I don't think that this is too important. (Until very recently, I didn't even know that there is such a thing as "PFull".)

i would prefer "XN: <filename>" or "<filename> (XNView)"
because the important part is the filename, not the program 8-)

i often have 2-6 instances of fullscreen views in my taskbar.
it shows something like:
Start | XnView - [blafa24..] | XnView - [blafa23...] | XnView - [testbla...] | XnView - [blafas...] | ....

so reading and knowing which task i want to click is more like guessing if some of the filenames are likewise. which happens very often, if you check pictures of a same kind.
so this issue is an important one

for me, of course, but it definately allows a more clear view from outside of xnview.

so 2) maybe is a bit high-spirited, but i highly need some kind of clearness while working.

It's not XNView but XnView :-)
