While I personally never noticed or cared about the missing Column Handler feature in Windows 7, I applaud Nikos for taking the time to revive something that I know many developers and even more users have been missing for months if not years.
Yet another feature that makes X² stand apart from the rest - Go Nikos!
Hi Nikos, this is fantatsic... as the original poster of this question (specifically after the "audio sample rate", "audio sample size" and "channels" fields) I'm really impressed to see this implemented by you so quickly.
However, I have applied the 64-bit version update (I'm running Windows 7) and there are additional columns (including the sample rate, sample size and channels fields) but when I add them to my file view they are all blank. I have tried a few different sets of files (both WAV and MP3) but none are listing this information under then newly added fields.
I appreciate any advice you could offer. Cheers, Rachel
THANKS! And thanks for explaining WTF happened, as I was very confused when Vista took a step backwards it seemed with the different avaiilable properties it showed in the details view.
Since you know so much about the shell perhaps you know the answer to this question I have had for a long time:
When you select View > Customize this folder, is there a way to create new file type groups in addition to the Music, Documents, General, and Videos that have default columns appearing and view styles as their defaults?
I had already created a new c++ project in VS pieced together first few mthods in an attempt tp port Foldersize over for W7 support. I had the code from good old "Folder Size" on hand, read over the property handler api..
Once last google revealed the update for X2, I almost couldn't believe it when I read it.
W7 x64 an Foldersize-64 tested, working great together!
Yet another reason why X2 stands alone, remarkable product, keep up the great work!
