Ok
Could you add Cancel and Aply (The standard windows method) buttons in the options dialog so it would possible to discard all changes made in the options. This is probaply easy to add, depending on how the options are currently saved.
I'll try to add a cancel button

Improve numeric sorting

Post by Clo » Mon Sep 05, 2005 10:04 pm

:arrow: Pierre

:) Hello !

- The actual numeric sorting in the browser doesn't provide a full natural sorting in the case you can see in that thread.
- It could be improved, but this needs IE 6.0 or > installed, to get the right version of the <SHLWAPI.DLL>, able to do this.
- This DLL must contain the function StrCmpLogicalW
- Then, we can get that full natural sorting even under Win 98 SE whether there is IE 6.0 at least.
The M$ doc is false about this…
I discovered that when testing Total Commander 6.5, where the feature has been added. Just for the fun, I tried, although it should not work but : Surprise ! It worked very fine !
We had a very interesting discussion, but unfortunately, the TC ß-forum is private, I can't give you the link… :(
However, maybe could you ask for some info to Ch. Ghisler, and tell him you'ld wish to implement the equivalent of the TC INI entry SortUpper=3 ;)
From the TC-Tutorial :
* SortUpper=0 / 1 / 2 / 3
* 1 : When sorting files, put files starting with an underscore _ last (1/0)
* 2 :makes a "natural" sorting, ignoring the spaces in file-names, sets the numbers at start / end of names as the usual order like
0, 1, 2, 3, .... 9, 10, 11, and so on, instead the "odd" Win / DOS system (order on the disk)…
* 3 : Like ‹2›, but with a logical sorting too for the special / accented characters as ê - é - è … o - ø - ö…which otherwise are placed at the end of the list with ‹2›
* ‹3› needs Internet Explorer 6.0 or newer installed !
* It works too under Win 98 SE if you have IE 6.0 installed. Found out by chance…
- Currently, we have the equivalent of "2" in XnView for the browser…
Hoping this could help,
:mrgreen: Kind regards,
Claude

Still lame---

:) Hello !

- Almost 6 months later, the lame sorting is not fixed up yet…

- We get the names with accented characters at the end, like this was shown HERE about numeric naming, but it's the same still with names beginning with an accented character :

• Please, could you fix up this, or create an INI entry to set the best sorting, like I explained above ? Image

Remind…

:) Thanks ! However, it can work with Win 98 Se and NT4 only whether IE 6 or newer is installed… So, to avoid useless grousings (griping), I think that either the new correct behaviour or the actual one could be chosen…
