0.21: Folder tree wrongly sorted

Post by Danny »

In WinXP SP3 the folders in the folder tree pane are not being sorted alphabetically. But that only seems to happen for FAT32 partitions. My NTFS partitions are being sorted from a-z.
Get the bugs fixed, THEN start adding features. It sucks, but someone has to do it.

:) Hello !
In WinXP SP3 the folders in the folder tree pane are not being sorted alphabetically. But that only seems to happen for FAT32 partitions. …
• Confirmed here under XP-Pro SP1 as well. It seems that the folder are shown like on the hard-disk (DOS style !)…
… My NTFS partitions are being sorted from a-z.
• Right, but with a damper : We don't get a Full natural sorting since the following folders are shown at the end i.e.
ZZ
_aaa
_bbb

À
Ä
etc.
• Thus, still the same lame behaviour than in the classic XnView versions, never really fixed… :|

You means no natural sorting in the tree view? In thumbnails view, it's ok right (XnViewMP)?

:) Hello !

• Yes, we are indeed talking of the sort order in the tree, it's the topic of this Danny's thread.
- The tumb nails are sorted OK (both in FAT32 and NTFS drives), including the folders names starting with diacritics.
- I can also confirm again that in FAT32 the tree looks “unsorted” (the items are shown like they are on the hard-disk).
