"Go to folder" dialog: Show last used value instantly

#1 Post by larsen » 01.03.2015, 09:20

FC used to show the last used folder when you opened the "go to folder" dialog. This has been changed due to other reasons as I was told, see http://forum.freecommander.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6221

Would be nice to have that feature back by adding a configuration option. FC already has so many config options (and that´s a good thing), so why not make it configurable?

New option added in the release 687:
Implemented: New option to define in the freecommander.ini in the Section [dlgInputBox]: AutoComplete=0. With AutoComplete=1 will be auto completion activated in e.g. "Go to folder", "New folder" dialogs.

I can't get it to work, no idea what I'm doing wrong... or maybe I don't understand how it works. :(

I had no [dlgInputBox] section in my freecommander.ini file, so I created one, after the [Form] section. Then I added a new line (AutoComplete=1).

This works:

Code: Select all

[dlgInputBox]
AutoComplete=1
edit: Edit the file while FC isn´t running.

It works here for "new folder" - just for the last item, but it looks it doesn't work for "go to folder" - when I start to type, but it works when I press the down arrow key, I'm not sure if it should work like this.

Oh, I get it now! :)
You have to start typing to have the matching items displayed.
I was expecting to have the dialog pre-filled with the last path used.

Works as expected for me. Start typing the first letter in the "Go to folder"-dialog and then I get the proposal. Same behaviour in the "New folder"-dialog.
