1st buglet discovered

Post by nikos » 2021 Mar 03, 15:51

peek preview for pics has a bug, it won't show big pictures, cropping them to nPeekTextWidth pixels (a registry setting meant for text files). Sorry about that, I did a last minute change that backfired

I'm sure there are many small glitches like this left, despite the efforts of beta testing team, but no worries, just keep reporting them and there will be a 5001 build in the near future

A peek preview nano-bug: the peek display can be dismissed with "any" key, but if that key is alt-F4, then alt-Q is no longer responsive. I have an Autohotkey script that quickly closes any window under the mouse using xbutton2 to raise the window and send alt-F4. I reflexively use it everywhere and have to restart Xplorer² to get alt-Q working again when I do that to a peek.

queer! alt+F4 destroys the window behind xplorer2's back. I'll add a test for this

@Gandolf keep in mind that peek preview doesn't work for all file types, just pics and text "documents"

I know that, it's one of the reasons I don't see much point in it.

However, do this:
Focus a jpg file
View > Peek preview - image is previewed
Alt+F4 - Peek preview closes
View > Peek preview - NO PEEK PREVIEW

The point I was making was that it's not only Alt+Q that stops working, it's Peek preview that stops working, regardless of how it's enabled.

I've also realised that the Peek preview is on top of any window - Alt+TAB to another application and Peek preview is on top of it. I dislike Peek preview more and more! Sorry Nikos but I think it's the first time in x² (or 2X) that you've done something that I can see no point in. My moan for this year!!

ok that's the same "bug" reported by astewart, it will be fixed
the good news is that peek preview isn't compulsory, like covid vaccination, so you don't have to worry about it :)

Yay, after a decade of radio silence, I have a bug kill. I have already vaccinated myself against this viral bug with an Autohotkey exception for the WTL_QuickView class window.

Autohotkey and Xplorer² are like my extra right and left hands...

Hello Alan,

As a neo-AHK user, can you please post the code you use with AHK to silence the Quickview window?

This is a portion of a larger script that uses XButton1 to close or minimize any window under the mouse as appropriate. For a hand full of programs, I want minimize, and for some others alt-F4 doesn't close well. However, the default is alt-F4. Without a case for QuickView,the default blew it up. The correct case is simply "Click" and the preceeding "WinActivate" does nothing. This code is specific to my uses and includes a tooltip to verify what's about to close.

Code: Select all

; fast close / minimize window under the mouse cursor
XButton1::
    CoordMode, Mouse
    CoordMode, ToolTip
    While (GetKeyState("XButton1", "P"))
    {
      sleep 10  ; less flicker
      MouseGetPos, mx, my, NextID
      If (!NextID)
      {
        CursorID := 0
        tt := "▶"
        ToolTip, % tt, mx+20, my+(my>20?-20:20)
        continue
      }
      WinGetClass, CursorClass, ahk_id %NextID%
      If (CursorClass = "tooltips_class32")     ; mouse overran tooltip
      {
        ToolTip, % tt, mx+20, my+(my>20?-20:20) ; move last tt
        continue
      }
      If (CursorClass = "Progman" || CursorClass = "Shell_TrayWnd")   ; desktop or tray
      {
        CursorID := 0
        tt := "▶◀"
        ToolTip, % tt, mx+20, my+(my>20?-20:20)
        continue
      }
      CursorID := NextID
      WinGet, CursorName, ProcessName, ahk_id %CursorID%
      WinGet, CursorPID, PID, ahk_id %CursorID%
      tt := "▼▼ " CursorName " " CursorPID
      ToolTip, % tt, mx+20, % my+(my>20?-20:20)
    }
    ToolTip
    If (!CursorID)
      return
    WinActivate, ahk_id %CursorID%
    WinWaitActive, ahk_id %CursorID%,, 2        ; maybe slow activation

    }
    ; default
    SendInput !{F4}                             ; exit
    return

The xplorer² portion is

Code: Select all

    IfWinActive, ahk_class ATL:ExplorerFrame    ; xplorer²
    {
      PostMessage, 0x112, 0xF020                ; min to tray
      ; 0x112, 0xF020 -> WM_SYSCOMMAND, SC_MINIMIZE
      return
    }
    IfWinActive, ahk_class ATL:ScrapFrame       ; xplorer² scrap pane
    {
      SendInput !{F4}                           ; close
      return
    }
    IfWinActive, ahk_class WTL_QuickView        ; xplorer² peek
    {
      Click                                     ; dismiss
      return
    }
