[Suggestion] Column labels

Post by NotNull »

With add-column:column1 etc. one can add custom columns.

Suggestion for an option to add a label to such a column.

Could even be done in the same add-column: function. Something like add-column:column2="my custom label"

Everything 1.5.0.1355a adds support for setting labels for columns 0-9 and columns A-F.

Example usage:

a-label:="My Column A Label"
add-column:a a-label:="Filename SHA256" a:=sha256($name:)
add-column:a a-label:="Size in bytes" a:=$size:

column-0-label: - column-9-label:
a-label: - f-label:



I have also simplified column assignment:

For example:
add-column:a a:=$size:
(instead of: add-column:column-a column-a:=$size: )

Everything 1.5.0.1358a makes a change to column labels.

Column labels now require assignment to be consistent with other search functions that set values.

For example:

a-label:="My Column Label"

The = after a-label: is now required.

Column Formulas are now applied.
