1.91: Wrong Tooltip

Post by Danny » Fri May 25, 2007 8:16 pm

Steps to reproduce:

- Setup tooltip to show Filename with extension but without path
- open a folder with subfolders
- choose to view files in subfolders

If you now hover over a movie file, it will display the filepath in the tooltip anyway. Not for image files though.

Here are my settings in Tools » Options... » Browser » Browser » Show tooltips:

Code: Select all

<Filename With Ext>
<Width>x<Height>x<BPP> · <Size>
<Modified>
For images the information is displayed as expected, ...

Code: Select all

image.jpg
1024×768×24 · 1.234.567
30/Feb/2007 20:07:30
... but with videos the tooltips are formatted differently:

Code: Select all

video.mpg, 1234567 bytes, 30.02.2007 20:07
Hence I can confirm some kind of bug for v1.91, although I don't get the filepath.

For video, i don't use the tooltips from option, because there is many things that are not the same as picture...

I see, but why is the tooltip correct for video files in the current folder? It only becomes wrong for files that are stored in a subfolder of the current one.

If you use 'show files in subfolders'??

So, how is it? I still get wrong tooltips. Even the default setting only shows the first line of the tooltip. And if i change it, it's still the same as the default setting.

Ok, i figured out why. I have "Scan file headers" only for fixed discs, so it won't scan files on the local network. :|

But it's unexpected that it won't show things like the file path, since that's not part of any file header. This is especially useful for the "Show files recursively" command to quickly find out in which folder a particular file resides in though.
