Converting... dialog improvements

Post by Dreamer »

I mean Converting... dialog for batch convert.

#1 % processed

#2 File X of Y processed

#3 Mininize button(s)

#4 Time remaining (?)

Example:

Code: Select all

+--------------------------------------+
| 8% Converting...  16 of 200  [_] [x] |
+--------------------------------------+
|       Converting...                  |
|       file...                        |
|                                      |
| ||||||                               |
|                                      |
| 21 seconds remaining                 |
|                                      |
|                  [Minimize] [Cancel] |
+--------------------------------------+
Edit: Another idea - when done, xnview could be restored dialog "Done" could be shown.

:) - small improvement - in the title bar should be % in front, to be visible if it would be minimized, so - "8% Converting...". I'll change my original post.

...[/code]
Very useful suggestions. What would the "Minimize button" do? Minimize XnView or minimize the conversion dialog? I think the latter will not help much unless the conversion is a separate thread, separate from XnView browser (I haven't tried it out, yet, I guess Pierre knows).

It should minimize both, xnview and conversion dialog.

Another idea - when done, xnview could be restored dialog "Done" could be shown.

And - such features could be implemented also to other long operations in xnview, e.g. "Extract movie frames" - there is even no progress dialog and it's very long operation.
