FindeXer Nightly Development Update #1

After taking some time to fix the few bugs discovered in V1.0, work has began on V1.1 with Build #1 being posted. New builds will mainly concentrate implementing Features from the queue listed here.

Changelog :

  • Bugfix, Dragging through FindeXer sometimes left a “shadow” of the item dragged.
  • New Feature : Drag & Drop on Objects now added – you can drop Files from explorer on FindeXer folders and they will copy/move. you can drop items from explorer on copies of .exe files in FindeXer and they will open automatically.
  • New Feature : Default Item Context Menu added as a SubMenu. just right click on an item.
  • New Feature : Highlighting is used to determine where an item will be dropped when dragged.
  • Improved Usability : Item Transparency when dragged from within the FindeXer window was increased.
  • Recode : Menu Handling. But lost the ability to display the “Close Bar” item.
  • Recode : Custom Icon drawing – if you use the “Item Edit” dialog to add a custom .ico image, you will now get a VERY high quality image.

Please Note : I am working VERY HARD and exploring all possibilities in order to make the option of having FindeXer as the default view for Explorer come true. Don`t bug me about it!

So go get downloading and enjoy testing out the new features…

This is a development version and as such could contain bugs. Some Features may also be incomplete or not fully implemented – please do not post notifying about them.

    Thanks for your update~
    I like FindeXer very much
    Hope it becomes better and better:)
    ps:in IE explorer FindeXer can start automatically..Now I am using IE to view my folds & files…why it can’t open automatically when starting an Explorer session?

    forgive me for my poor english…..

    hello usairaq,
    IE and Windows Explorer are built in a different way, IE loads the last bar automatically, Explorer does not.
    – keep tabs on the development – a solution is on the way 😉

    Also, it is very nice that I didn’t have to add all my icons again after updating. Thank you!

    Hey you rock man! This makes navigation so much simpler

    Some suggestions for the future:

    1. Themes (would make it so much more colorful if we could mimic vista, mac, etc

    2. Transparency. If this could be made partially transparent but not the rest of the window it would look excellent. Those are just two suggestions.

    As to the overall app I’ve had no problems (XP SP2)
