folder with " " at the end: xnview not able to ent

Post by eweryboooody »

try this: in the browser hit F7 to create a folder. Then name it like .. "sdafasdf " but don't forget to put an " " at the end. Now try to enter it with doubleklick or keyboard enter. The marking always jumps to the first item in the browser.

Can someone verify this?

It seems to be fixed if you expand the folder in the folder tree and then enter it there.

But if you enter a foldername with " " at the end in folder tree and then pick another folder xnview crashes completely.

I'd suggest to always delete following " " on finish renaming.

Confirmed.

Test in Windows XP Home German, SP2:
- Microsoft Explorer autoremoves spaces at beginning/end of Names (after rename).
- XNView allows both, which perhaps is interesting for some users.
- MS Explorer can manage folders with spaces after they have been created in XNView.

Very strange, windows seems to remove the last space when creating it

Ah ok! Windows automatically does, but you don't?

Fixable?

Fixed in B1. Creating folders in tree which end in spaces is no longer possible- so it no longer crashes.
