Updated Folder Selection Dialog

Post by robena »

Hi,

Newsleecher is still using old XP style folder selection dialogs.

It would be nice if it was updated to use the common file dialog one, the one with the Favorites on its left panel. It's really nicer, and more usable.

This:

shows some examples of this dialog.

Robert,

This test release uses an improved "folder selection" dialog, on OS versions supporting it :

Gee, you took your sweet time to satisfy my query, almost 40 minutes! :)

I wish all vendors were that fast, thanks!

Hi,

I found an anomaly, not sure if it's specific to this version, or something I did wrong:

1) I clicked on an NZB file while Newsleecher was not in connected mode.
2) A bunch of files were queued to my default download directory B:\a.b.h.
3) I changed the download directory by right-cliking on the queued files. The new (thanks!) dialog popped up, and I selected a subdirectory b:\a.b.h\new.
4) The queued files then showed b:\a.b.h\new as download folder, but after connecting, they were downloaded to b:\a.b.h.

Good catch :) Didn't work as expected due to a ufr12 bug.

This test should fix it : http://www.newsleecher.com/nl70002.ufr13.exe
