Word-wrap the tooltip tab info

Post by budz45 »

hi,

Another observation I've noticed and want to raise...

I notice the hover tooltip shows the complete file path when hovering over a viewer tab in XnMP. This is good but the length of the wide length of the tooltip just to accommodate a long file path is inappropriate.

What I'm discussing about, is ringed in red in this picture: http://i40.tinypic.com/o793lx.png

1. The tooltip display should be word-wrapped to roughly 20 characters when showing the file path. So it would much better visually display downwards like this:
C:\Users\ED2K9\Desktop\
2010-04-10_05495245435
3454343534543.png
2. For REALLY LONG file path's (let's say over 500 characters), then truncating the file path for appropriate display would be needed example. adding suffix dots "......." followed by very end suffix of the file extension e.g. ".png"

3. An Option somewhere in the XnMP 'options' to disable tab tooltip display altogether.

You use "{Directory}{Filename With Ext}"?

Oh sorry, you referring to this same picture; http://i40.tinypic.com/o793lx.png

Yes I do use "{Directory}{Filename With Ext}"

Sorry for the confusion but I had to blur out that info for privacey reasons before I uploaded the picture.

But an automatic Word-Wrap '....' should still exist in the tooltip.
