Custom date format (General -> View)

Post by ilyanik » Tue Dec 29, 2020 9:32 am

For "Date Modified/Created/..." columns (similar to Size format for "Size" column?)
Options "with seconds" and "with milliseconds" will be enough for me, but probably fully customized date format (like "YYYY-MM-...") will require similar effort.

I'm not seeing seconds/milliseconds ?
Otherwise, https://www.voidtools.com/en-uk/support ... stomizing/.

There is:

s Seconds with no leading zero for single-digit seconds.
ss Seconds with leading zero for single-digit seconds.
SSS Milliseconds with leading zeros, must be the last part of the format.

From the search bar enter (for example) the following and press ENTER:

Code: Select all

/time_format=HH:mm:ss.SSS
The highest time-resolution possible is 100 nano seconds. That is not available this way, but if you export your results to an EFU file (Menu:File > Export), you will see the time in number of 100 nanoseconds since 1601-01-01 (in a text editor).


Just out of curiosity: for what occasion do you need file times in milliseconds?

(Heh. I didn't scroll down far enough to realize that date & time were treated separately.)

I don't remember exactly, that was a one time need. ))
Something related to debugging of real time configuration file reloading, with FindFirstChangeNotification

Probably it can be useful to better estimation of copying speed (ms between files)

I still believe, this customization should be available from (Tools -> Options... -> General -> View), but now this is one of the most minor suggestions I can think of.
