Overview: View Mode | Auto Switch Mode | Custom columns view

Post by *tuska » 2019-08-07, 22:56 UTC

The points listed below are intended as support for the creation of views and do not claim for completeness.
View Mode and Auto Switch Mode are available since 23.11.2016 - Total Commander Release 9.0 final (32/64).

1. VIEW MODE
Show

Code: Select all

VIEW MODE                      Configuration - Options... - View Mode
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Name ........................: Title (self-selected name); [Option: See -> Auto Switch Mode - field: "Set this mode:"] 
Columns view ................: according to list (default) OR saved "Custom columns view" in the drop-down box can be integrated(!)
Sort order: .................: Descending: Yes / No (hooked = Yes) 
Additional sort orders: .....: 1 Name, 2 Ext, 3 Size, 4 Date ---  Ascending / Descending (press the plus-sign) 
Tab color and icon ..........: Self-explanatory or simply press F1 for help
Background color ............: Self-explanatory or simply press F1 for help
Background color2 ...........: Self-explanatory or simply press F1 for help
Priority ....................: Explanations: Press F1 for help
Auto-run commands ..........): press F1 for help; press the "+" plus-sign, e.g. em_commands. 
............................): Windows splittings [20/80,30/70,40/60,50/50,60/40,70/30,80/20]:
............................): Example: cm_100percent|cm_50percent
............................): -> broaden active window to 100% (cm_100percent) and 
............................): -> after leaving View Mode the active window is automatically reset to 50%/50% (|cm_50percent).
............................): cm_100Percent 70|cm_50Percent, cm_100percent -20|cm_100Percent,
............................): Width of the active window (70%): cm_100percent 70     / Set the width of the right panel to 100%:
............................): Width of the left window   (20%): cm_100percent -20    / cm_FocusRight,cm_100Percent
............................): See also: https://ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?p=337141#p337141 several buttons, e.g. for 
............................): "Set Panel divider to entered percent".
............................): [Windows splittings - script solutions: https://ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?p=358039#p358039]
............................): Windows splitting: The separator line  <-||-> is located at the left edge of the vertical buttonbar, 
............................): a double-click on it and you get a 50:50 windows width-view.
............................):  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
............................): File Exclusions - Example: *.* |*.mp3 *.wma  = Search for files *.*, 
............................): except *.mp3 *.wma - files and apply the View Mode, e.g. MP3.
............................): ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
............................): |cm_SrcViewMode0 - 1 of 3: 
............................): After leaving the directory, a reset to <Default> (no symbols or colors) is NOT required! 
............................): Quote from Mr. Ghisler (Email 31.5.2018):
............................): Total Commander should even switch to mode 0 when you leave a zone of a View Mode. 
............................): But it gets in the way of other View Modes, if you e.g. directly from a directory, 
............................): which mode 1 is assigned to, change into a directory which is assigned to e.g. mode 2.[/quote]
............................): ("Mode" = View Mode). -> Therefore do NOT use Auto-run command: |cm_SrcViewMode0 as a rule!
............................): See also the following point...
............................): ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
............................): |cm_SrcViewMode0 - 2 of 3:
............................): Use of |cm_SrcViewMode0 for button "ON/OFF" switch - Example:
............................): Application of View Mode and reset to <default>, e.g. for View Mode: "File name and path".
............................): + Auto-run commands: |cm_SrcViewMode0 + button with command: cm_SrcViewModeList file name and path
............................): -> Press button several times = show file name and path ON/OFF (button behaves like a "switch")
............................): Attention: |cm_SrcViewMode0 = <default>: In this case this has an effect e.g. on the next tab,
............................): for which an Auto Switch Mode has been set, because clicking on the next tab causes the
............................): predefined Auto Switch Mode + View Mode to be switched OFF!
............................): Quote from Mr. Ghisler (Email 7.6.2018): 
............................): This is due to the fact that with a directory change 
............................): - first it will be switched to the new View Mode, 
............................): - then the procedure behind | is executed in the old mode, 
............................): - and finally that before | in the new mode. 
............................): Therefore cm_SrcViewMode0 removes the just set new mode. Unfortunately this cannot be solved otherwise.
............................): ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
............................): |cm_SrcViewMode0 - 3 of 3:
............................): In general one can check the above listed variants (with corresponding effect at "2 of 3")
............................): with regard to whether you want to have an "ON/OFF" switch for a button or not.
............................): ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Commands (Selection) .......): cm_SrcViewModeList (= Show - Custom View Modes), cm_SrcViewModeList NameOfYourViewMode, 
............................): cm_SrcViewMode0 (default View Mode), cm_SrcViewMode1 to 9 (8501-8509); 8510-8749  ***)

............................): cm_LeftViewModeX, cm_RightViewModeX, cm_TrgViewModeX
Command browser ............): Type in: cm_CommandBrowser ... in the TC command line, then press <ENTER> (search internal commands)
............................): => Click on category: View modes
............................): ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
wincmd.ini ..................: sections [ViewModes], [left], [right] - [... for inquiries in the forums important!]
View Mode <Default> ........): You should/must define here what you want to get as a view when a View Mode has finished,
............................): especially in the case of a combination with an Auto Switch Mode. 
............................): E.g. Columns view: Full, Sort order: Name / See also: Help-F1!
Limitations .................: For View Modes, the number is limited to 250. ***) see also point 5.
............................): For View Modes, the number of buttons is limited to 250 per command. ***) see point 5.

Notes ......................): The order of the View Modes can be changed by clicking on the arrow buttons ∧∨
............................): in the settings menu (Configuration...View mode - below the button "Change title...").
............................): The buttons for View Modes do NOT have to be changed after changing the order,
............................): but only if they are called with the following command: cm_SrcViewModeList NameOfYourViewMode.
............................): If a button with the command: cm_SrcViewMode0 ... cm_SrcViewMode249 is called,
............................): then an adjustment is necessary in each case, i.e. the number(!) for the command
............................): must be adjusted in the button, e.g. from cm_SrcViewMode4 to cm_SrcViewMode6. 
............................): <Default> does not count, i.e. the first self-created View Mode has the number 1.
............................): Furthermore the tooltip has to be adjusted.
............................): ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Calling View Modes manually ): View Modes can be called manually as follows,
............................): - via the "Show" menu - "Custom View Modes" or
............................): - by button with command: cm_SrcViewModeList NameOfViewmode
Calling View Modes automat. ): User-defined rules (-> Configuration - Auto Switch Mode) can be used to automatically switch to

  *) [CustomFields] Titles= ... max. 1023 characters possible for titles to Custom columns views.
     This corresponds - with good readability - to approx. 50 titles/Custom columns views at present.
     
     Theoretically more than approx. 50 Custom columns views can be defined - quote: Email from 14.8.2019/Mr. Ghisler:
     "The limitation is made by the text field - with shorter names more entries have space."
     
     Examples of constellations where the maximum of 1023 characters for titles (with good readability) 
     was already used with 50 Custom columns views:
     - Configuration - Custom columns: 52 Path Access date --> title is no longer displayed (after clicking on "Edit".)
     - Context menu -> The Custom columns view nos. + titles are no longer displayed
     - Button -------> cm_SrcCustomView51 ... Custom columns view No. 51 executable!
     - Button -------> cm_SrcCustomView52 ... Custom columns view No. 52 executable! ... and up to no. 99!
       Tip: In the tooltip for the button, enter what the button should be used for, e.g. "cm_SrcCustomView52|52 Path Access date".
     
     Theoretically, the limit of currently max. 1023 characters for titles could be increased, but this would result in 
     compatibility problems with older Total Commander versions (analogous quote: Email 14.08.2019/Mr. Ghisler)

You can use the code to create a button as follows:
1. Simply mark the code (between "---")
2. CTRL + C  (Copy to clipboard)
3. Make a right click on your buttonbar on an empty space [e.g. after the last button or between the buttons] 
4. Click on menu item "Paste"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Functions of buttons can be extended with composite commands - e.g. with Command:
1. cm_SrcViewMode0,em_Delete-all-filters,cm_50Percent
2. cm_SrcActivateTab1,cm_TrgActivateTab1,cm_FocusLeft,cm_RereadSource
3. cm_50Percent,cm_FocusLeft,cm_SrcViewMode0,em_Delete-all-filters,cm_FocusRight,cm_SrcViewMode0,em_Delete-all-filters,cm_SrcActivateTab1,cm_TrgActivateTab1,cm_FocusLeft,cm_RereadSource

7. HOW LONG DOES A VIEW MODE OR A CUSTOM COLUMNS VIEW REMAIN VISIBLE?
Show

Code: Select all

How long does a View Mode or a Custom columns view remain visible?

Usually, a "View Mode" or a "Custom columns view" will remain in place until you switch to another view, namely 

a) manually, e.g. with a self-defined button with command: cm_SrcViewModeList NameOfYourViewMode
   ......... OR button with command: cm_SrcCustomViewX (X=No. of your "Custom columns view")
   OR
   e.g. by changing an existing View Mode, e.g. with the shortcut CTRL+Shift+F2 = Comments view ON ...
   https://ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=53547 statement by Mr Ghisler: "If you change the View Mode manually, 
   Auto Switch Mode will be disabled until you enter an area with a different mode."
   
b) automatically, in the case of a View Mode, if a combination with an "Auto Switch Mode"-rule exists AND
   "Automatically switch view mode on directory change:" is checked.

--------
Exceptional case (due to an input error!)

c) automatically, in the case of an "Auto Switch Mode", if "Automatically switch view mode on directory change:" is checked,
   even though no "Auto Switch Mode" rule has been defined.
   https://ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?p=339826#p339826 
   ..."Could be nice that when you create a View Mode (colors, icons, ...) for one directory, there were a check option 
       to apply this view to any of its subdirectories..." 
   ..."I had not any "Auto Switch Mode" but I had checked the "Automatically switch View Mode on directory change". ..."
   ..."I have removed the check and the "View Mode" is preserved in subdirectories too. ...)
   Other example:
   "View Mode" - "View_BRIEF_Name" (Columns view: Brief, sort order: Name) is ALWAYS kept
   although no "Auto Switch Mode" rule has been defined, but in "Auto Switch Mode"
   "Automatically switch view mode on directory change:" is checked.

Tip: If necessary, it is advisable to copy the topics into a text file to make them even easier to read
[and to use a text editor that supports outlining and bookmarks, e.g. EmEditor;
<for automatic creation of outline views for sections in TOTALCMD.INC and wincmd.ini also very well suited!>].
