Yes, I was too lazy for too few changes. Try again in a few minutes.

I tried to define the new tag "CountryCode" with

Code: Select all

098=8|CountryCode|Iptc.Application2.CountryCode
in jpg-comment.ini.

First time TC crashed, now it seem to work.
Is the new definition OK?

BTW:
For testing I removed all entries for EXIF and XMP in INI-File and removed also "jpg-comment" from second token.

What did you do? Can you reproduce and tell me all the steps and necessary information! OK, have just seen it.

Yes, token looks alright.

Completion:
How to handle the translations?
For "LocationName" I get "LocationName", for "Sublocation" I get "Stadtbereich" ..

You need to put a jpg-comment.lng next to your jpg-comment.ini.

Code: Select all

[deu]
CountryCode=Landeskürzel
LocationName=Ortsname
Sublocation=Stadtbereich

Thanks, I see.

To reproduce the former crash is not easy. Maybe it was an incident with other problems ...

Here are strings which appear in English although there is a German language file (Some strings are defined with blanks in existing LNG ...)

Code: Select all

DateCreated=
TimeCreated=
Writer=
SpecialInstructions=
SuppCategory=
BylineTitle=
EditStatus=
FixtureId=
ObjectName=
LocationName=
ProvinceState=
CountryName=
TransmissionReference=
RecordVersion=
ImageType=
CountryCode=
But when I translate e.g. "DateCreated" I have problem to use this entry.

I think I found the error. You must not have duplicates of translated entries in the language file, i.e. this is wrong

Code: Select all

Creation Date = Erstellungsdatum
DateCreated = Erstellungsdatum
. Translation map must be injective.

German Umlaute

Post by *Peter »

Hello Thomas

I tried to use this definition:

Code: Select all

[attrplugin]
problem=jpg-comment.DateCreated := "" | jpg-comment.LocationName := "-- a ä o ö u ü A Ä O Ö U Ü --" | jpg-comment.SubLocation := "-- a ä o ö u ü A Ä O Ö U Ü --" | jpg-comment.Caption := "-- a ä o ö u ü A Ä O Ö U Ü --" | jpg-comment.Contact := "-- a ä o ö u ü A Ä O Ö U Ü --" | jpg-comment.Copyright := "-- a ä o ö u ü A Ä O Ö U Ü --" | jpg-comment.CountryName := "-- a ä o ö u ü A Ä O Ö U Ü --" | jpg-comment.CountryCode := "" | jpg-comment.Source := "-- a ä o ö u ü A Ä O Ö U Ü --" | jpg-comment.TransmissionReference := "-- a ä o ö u ü A Ä O Ö U Ü --" | jpg-comment.Headline := "-- a ä o ö u ü A Ä O Ö U Ü --" | jpg-comment.Subject := "-- a ä o ö u ü A Ä O Ö U Ü --"
It works fine to set and to display it in TC, but analysing it with Exiftool and with XnView shows problems:
- XnView is OK, but not "Caption" and "Copyroight"
- Exiftool(-k) has problems with all entries, but with the two mentioned entreis it has other problems.
- ExiftoolGUI is the same as XnView.

Please take a look behind it.

Thanks

Thanks for testing. By chance I found a bug in the plugin which could lead to the run-time exception you observed earlier during test.
Peter wrote:- XnView is OK, but not "Caption" and "Copyright"
If you use ft_string option instead of ft_stringw option in jpg-comment.ini for "Caption" and "Copyright" XnView displays them correctly, too.

Code: Select all

074=8|Caption|Iptc.Application2.Caption
076=8|Copyright|Iptc.Application2.Copyright

If you run exiftool from command line with -L option (= Latin1 character set) the entries are corretly displayed. But not in command window which has problems with encodings.

Thanks for your quick reply and solution.

Will there be an update of plugin or is it only a small issue?

Thanks. So it seem to be a basic setting of Exiv2 and not an issue of XnView?

With "command window" you mean the "exiftool(-k).exe"?

Yes and yes. It is not only this issue ...

No, it is matter of XnView which does not correctly display UTF-8 encoded IPTC metadata.

I checked with old exiftool.exe Vs. 8.0.6.0 on command line. Command window is window of Eingabeaufforderung.
