Everything - Version No. in header

Post by tuska »

I think this header is very good. ... Picture
1.5.0.1251a (x64)

If one could prefix the version number with "Everything", then it would be perfect from my point of view...

Code: Select all

Everything 1.5.0.1251a (x64)
or
Everything (x64) 1.5.0.1251a
I like that much better than, for example...
c:\windows\ - Everything
or
explorer.exe - Everything

Perhaps this could still be set up with an option in Everything?

The version was recently added as an option for the title bar / window caption ($v(
You can get your desired layout by typing the following in the search bar, followed by ENTER:

Code: Select all

/window_title_format=$t $v

I think "Version No. in header" it's good and should be default for alpha/beta.
It will help Forum Community with knowing the version when a screenshot is uploaded.

In such a case, I would suggest an additional option, namely that you indicate in the title bar
with some character, e.g. "^", whether Everything was started as an administrator.

E.g.

Code: Select all

^Everything 1.5.0.1251a (x64)

I have added some preprocessor commands to the title format in Everything 1.5.0.1252a.

To show a ^ in front of Everything, when Everything is running as an admin:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:

    Code: Select all

    /window_title_format=#if(:#isadmin:,^#):$t $v
    
preprocessor syntax:
#function:text
#function(:arg1,arg2,arg3,...#):
#(:a literal block of text#):

Currently supported preprocessor functions:
  • #if:condition,true-value,false-value -if condition is true, returns true-value, else false-value.
  • #len:text -returns the length of text in UTF-16 characters.
  • #version: -returns the current version with the major.minor.revision.build format.
  • #isadmin: -returns 1 if running as an admin, 0 otherwise.
This list will grow in future versions.

I have just noticed that when an additional instance is used, in the title bar of Everything
it is no longer possible to determine which version is being used, i.e. the first instance or the additional instance.

Could you please also display the instance in the title bar?

Example:

Code: Select all

Everything 1.5.0.1272a (x64) ................. first instance
Everything 1.5.0.1272a (x64) - (PRIVATE) ..... additional instance

If you want the dash and instance after the version, please use:

/window_title_format=#if:<#isadmin:,^>$t $v$i?{ - ($i)}

I like this option very much because the use of Everything as an administrator is displayed so concisely
that it is almost impossible to overlook this fact.

At present, however, the Everything version no. and instance title is not displayed for this variant, but only:

Code: Select all

Everything [Administrator]
Perhaps one could change this code:

Code: Select all

/window_title_format=#if:<#isadmin:,^>$t $v$i?{ - ($i)}
... to show the following - Examples:

Code: Select all

Everything 1.5.0.1289a (x64) - [Administrator]
Everything 1.5.0.1289a (x64) - (PRIVATE) - [Administrator]
Please check.

Using default settings the version number is shown before Administrator.

My opinion:

It is enough to show that Everything is running as Administrator, so you can fix that "mistake" :)

If I remove this line from Everything.ini:

Code: Select all

window_title_format=#if:<#isadmin:,^>$t $v$i?{ - ($i)}
then the title bar will only say -> Everything.
In Everything.ini I then only have this entry: window_title_format=

If I start Everything as an administrator, it says Everything [Administrator] in the title bar.

I am currently not aware of any option that I could have set regarding the title bar,
which leads to the view you indicated.

So at the moment I leave my setting with version no., instance title, ^Everything... as administrator as it is.

I suppose that is also what you are suggesting here.

I never changed anything related to that topic and I'm not aware of any option.
So only David can tell us whats the reason for your display.
For me the version info is not importand
as I'm always running the latest alpha :)

The issue is most likely due to the current Language.

Temporarily try setting your Language to English (US) and the title should include the version and [Administrator].


I'll look into a new localization string and retiring the old one.

For now, set your window_title_format to:
/window_title_format=$s?{$s - }$t$i?{ ($i)} $v#if:<#isadmin:, [Administrator]>
(this is the current default English (US) window_title_format)

Oh, brain wave: if you don't run your Everything in portable mode (and/or have Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything enabled), running as adminiustrator will have a different ini file. Make sure you are looking at the right one :)

about:config should open the one you are using at that moment.

For me, the version number, etc. is important, even though I usually use the latest alpha version.
