RC6: Thumbnails&Details: Diverse date/time formats

Post by helmut »

In the new Thumbnails & Details view, some dates are shown (actually not quite clear what these dates are).

Currently, for displaying the date at the very bottom, the long date format of the Windows systems is used. Whereas for the date/time in the fourth line, a different format is used. This is a bit irritating, also using the long date/time format needs a lot of space and the entry will be truncated.

I suggest to
- use same date/time format for entries
- use short date/time format of the Windows System (not the long one).

The date/time in the fourth line, is the short format (using the long format would eat up too much room)
The date/time in Windows system tray uses long format but that can be changed in the Control Panel -> Regional Options.

I'm not sure what you want from Pierre on this one?

I mean the last (5th row) in the column 'Properties', not the system tray. The 5th row uses the long date format, whereas the 4th uses a different (short?) date format.

I should learn how to count... .. it's the 5th and 6th row which show dates. From what I can see the 6th row is the "EXIF modified" timestamp, so you will see this only on JPG files with EXIF data.

As written above, I'm not quite clear where the date value of 6th row origins. You can download and try the Sample image to reproduce the problem (guess you have to right-click and then choose 'Save link..' to download the image unchanged).

I've changed the long date format and the format of the date/time in 6th row has changed. So I think XnView uses the date/time, not string for this value.

You have changed date/time format of windows???
The short date/time format is better?
