Universal Viewer is an alternative for Total Commander Lister (stand-alone). All Lister's view modes are implemented: Text, Binary, Hex, RTF etc.

Advantages over Lister:
  • Built-in functions of several popular plugins: images, multimedia, webpages view
  • Support for text converters
  • Support for user tools
  • Toolbar, status bar, other interface improvements
  • Auto-reloading of file on changing, "Follow tail" option
  • Displaying of line numbers
  • Displaying of non-printable characters
  • Combined Unicode/Hex mode (call Unicode mode twice)
  • More modern RegEx search library
  • Print preview
  • EXIF viewer

There is advantage over Lister without WLX plugins.
Over Lister+plugins - the main adv. is Unicode support.

2Alextp

Smile Hello Alexeï !

• Nice tool anyway ! Thank you !

<SWEET>
- I appreciate especially the good display of *.ico files, where the real size is shown, and the other features too !
- Also the animation for the GIFs (which has never been supported by the original Lister, either embedded or standalone…)
- I have to test further about the images display, but all looks already promising !
</SWEET>

<BITTER>
• Currently, the programme has not any LNG file… Do you plan some localization ?

• There is an issue for the Next¦Previous file in the following case :
- In TC : Sort by extensions (so, then by name in each type-group),
- A folder in wich there are various images types like below :

1.BMP
2.BMP
*.BMP

1.GIF
2.GIF
3.GIF
*.GIF

1.JPG
2.JPG
3.JPG
*.JPG


- If you begin to display images from 1.GIF or 2.GIF, it's impossible to get the Next¦Previous ! Sad
The image stays on the window.
- Same if you start with 1.JPG or 2.JPG !
- That works only when you start from file #3, for any type, as well text files, or if you begin with the very first file of the very first extension-group.
- It works from the first file too if I choose "Sort by names" in the TC-panels, but this is not convenient at all for me…
</BITTER>

Accuracies :
- I Drag & Drop the first file to display to the tool icon in a button-bar, this is my usual way to work…
- The tool doesn't care the current sort order in TC, it applies always "By names".
- Win XP-Pro - SP1 (French)
- In TC : SortUpper=3

Mr. Green Kind regards,
Claude
Clo

Not now, later, when program will be wider used.

Hmm.. It's Stange.
Next|Previous feature works indep-ly of sort order in TC.
All it requires that passed name in commandline must exist. And that it's long, not 8.3 name. So, if it works for 3.jpg, it must work for 1/2.jpg...
I can make logging of this operation so we'll find the bug. I'll mail you later.

Smile Hello !

Embarassed Forgotten, Unicode support in <SWEET>, indeed !

- Well, I'll attempt a workaround Laughing

- I seems you are using the Win default order, and AFAIK, it's corresponding to the SortUpper=2 of TC, so not a wonder… and only by names. This causes annoyances in several programmes using that too, i.e. in XnView…
- IMHO, the current sort order of TC for the viewed dir. might be supported
(detected then used, even if that takes ¼ second…)

• The names shown here are just for examples and convenience, I have not 8.3 names in the test-directory !
- I guess that my way to work via D & D does matter in the case… Just a feeling, though.

But it seems that TC cannot pass to viewer correct Unicode names. See near thread in English forum about it.

But how to determine it?

And note: this utility is not a plugin for TC, it cannot use TC settings at all! It's just standalone utility. It uses its own sort order, always by name. Smile

So please tell me what real names were. Full path of directory and full filenames.

I replied in e-mail...

We have 2 pborlems with it:
- No setting for wincmd.ini path at all
- I tested: TC saves "SortOrder" wincmd.ini key only when exiting, not "on-the-fly". So this key becomes meaningless...
Any suggestions?

Smile Hello Alexeï !

• I got you mail, thanks.

- Here, the file-names themselves do not matter in that issue, I think.
All are ANSI Latin I (1252). Not any file or dir names as Unicode of any kind, this is useless in French.
• To catch alright how the issue occurs, please watch THIS VIDEO.
The video shows how is the file-list in the TC panel, and what occurs when you carry by D & D the first file of an extension group which is not the first group of extensions.
Quote:
…- No setting for wincmd.ini path at all…

• Just for a test : No problem here, it's always %COMMANDER_PATH%\wincmd.ini
Quote:
…TC saves "SortOrder" wincmd.ini key only when exiting, not "on-the-fly". So this key becomes meaningless...

• No problem again for a test : here it's almost always "By extension" for all image-dirs. (and others) when I need to view them…
- Moreover, I'm in the habit to close TC the most times when working with another soft, so the <wincmd.ini> is often refreshed !

• Further, sorting by date might be considered, I use this also when I draw icons… Wink and the viewer behaves the same than “Extensions” in the case…

As I replied in e-mail, the problem is: you run Viewer with *short* filename in commandine. So it cannot find filename in dir, it looks only for *long* filenames.
So Clo: can you setup TC so that TC will run Viewer with long filenames in commandline?

If you setup Viewer as additional program for Atl+F3, no problems will be.

I may fix this also, so that Viewer will look for short names too, but let's setup TC first.

2Alextp

Smile I didn't set parameters for 8.3 names in the button bar !
- With images softs, I do the same, and I can see the next¦previous files without any problem from D & D any file at any position with any sort order in TC……

- I have added %N %P as parameters for the button of the viewer.
- Now, it no longer tells that the name is not found, but I can see only 3 pictures / 134 : the viewer says it's the first pic, and asks to jump to last one of the dir. >> OK >> The opposite ! Instead to open the next or previous one as expected… Rolling Eyes

Sorry, what is "images softs"?

Quote:

I did the same, now Viewer gets long filenames.
So the problem is gone here.

Strange. If you hold down Ctrl-PgDn/PgUp, will you see only 3 files, or 134?
Quote:

That's normal, because filelist order differs from TC's list order.

Smile Hello Alexeï !
Quote:

• I meant : Images viewers programmes, of course !

- I wonder to know what is the default when you set a button without any parameter, about the name type of the called files !
- Till today, I never had any problem for this : I didn't set any parameter !
- I'll have to ask for an accuracy to Ch. Ghisler, 'cause I didn't test with the current version of TC Wink

¤ Else :
- I ought put a damper on the icon-display… Neutral
- All icons - any size- up to 32² (included) are nicely displayed as the real size; unfortunately, the sizes larger than 32² are not, they are shown as 32² still… and truncated, only the upper-left corner is shown up to 32², the rest is missing Sad
- You can see two samples for a 48²-icon and a 64² test icon that you can save to test…

Question Any idea ?

Mr. Green Kind regards,
Claude

About Next|Previous:
so, now, with %P%N params, feature works correctly?
You only suggest that TC sort order should be considered?
