Not doing that on mine... (ie it is working and keeping the right percentage)

To get the properties box to display on the monitor the program is on, you need to set the hwnd value in SHELLEXECUTEINFO to the main form handle ie SHELLEXECUTEINFO execInf; ZeroMemory (&execInf, sizeof (execInf)); execInf.cbSize = sizeof (execInf); execInf.hwnd = this->Handle ; execInf.lpVerb = "p...

Not a good idea unless it was turned off by default, as it's something most people wouldn't want automatically happening..

And I should add that I just tried killcopy and teracopy - both looked good on paper, but I had problems with both within the first 15 minutes of using them.. Too many features, not enough robustness and sensible design - ie teracopy expands the file list and puts it in a grid before copying. I don'...

Thanks, I'll do that as soon as it comes out - I tried to use FC to copy a lot of fies last night and gave up after about 30 minutes.. Given the inbuilt copy function just dies whenever it runs into a problem, you then have to FIND the file it died on, and start the copy again afterwards, etc etc.. ...

Good idea, that's what I've been doing for years - with C++ you just make a file handling class and then you can always go and change the implementation and your program doesn't even know about it.. I've been doing that since watcom came out with their 32 bit dos extender years ago - I wrote a 32 bi...

Doesn't on mine - I'm using 2007.05a on Win 2000 Pro Patch 4 build 2195, and if FC is on the second monitor the 'confirm replace' comes up on the second monitor, but the copy progress always comes up on monitor 1. And it isn't because that's where I last put it either, no matter where I might have s...

Actually, I like it on mouse down - though that might be because I've got more screen realestate and actually do want to dig it out from whatever it is behind.....

My first thought was that there would be a couple of ways to do it - 1) use your own copy routine, with your own dialog box (I tend to use WriteFileEx for everything now days, and also ignore most of the standard dialogs...) But I assume you are using SHFileOperation, so then I thought 2) Separately...

..and I learn something every day ie I just ran into this (doing a search for something else) - " Have you ever noticed that Windows XP gives you the 'yes to all' option in its file copy dialog box, useful if you would like to overwrite files in a directory with newer files of the same name from ano...

Thanks. And I'm happy to give a hand if it is required (I'm ok at C++ :-) ) - every time I have to get out of FC and go back to Nortons NT filemanager I'll post up the feature I had to do it for.. I hope that helps make FC the best one out there, as I'm a bit of a hard core user (I have 3TB of files...

multi monitor support for the copy progress dialog

This isn't that important (compared to the other features I was talking about here http://www.forum.freecommander.com/viewtopic.php?t=39) but if you are running two monitors, and have FC on monitor 2, it still opens up the copy progress on monitor 1. A great feature would be to open it up wherever i...

"no to all" on copy, and skip file on error

I've been using FC for a few weeks now - I'm a long time user of the nortons NT tools one (which keeps having problems on 4gb boundaries) and looking around FC look like one of the best replacements. However, there are two things it needs to have added to be really usable to someone who does a lot w...
