WhereIsIt Build 3.80.1127 - 26. November 2006
Last Update: November 26, 2006
Windows Vista is included in supported operating systems.
A lot of adjustments for Windows Vista compatibility, mostly to support Vista look&feel. Many controls were adjusted for Vista visual styles, and many details addressed according to Vista design recommendations.
Window and dialogs hierarchy are completely redesigned and worked around compared to what Delphi does by default. This was necessary in order to properly support Flip3D and window thumbnails.
All dialogs throughout the program, about 100 of them, were revisited and controls rearranged in a standard, consistent way. There is typically more space between controls, resulting in dialogs appearing less crowded and easier to use, especially in small DPI environments. Dialogs also better handle larger fonts, like new Segoe UI 9pt recommended for Windows Vista.
A lot of icons used through the program were updated, redesigned, or enhanced with additional sizes and color depths. They look better on Windows XP, and scale better on high-DPI Vista systems. Icons intended for representing WhereIsIt's registered file types also include new Vista 256x256 PNG compressed icons.
Thumbnails view on all systems has a new look, closer to what Vista uses in its Explorer.
Additional caption buttons that used to appear on some windows are no more. That concept is outdated, it interferes with Vista's glass interface, and those buttons haven't had much to offer to end users.
The same as above goes for the '..' folder, it's a part of DOS inherited history and is gone for good. It's just not used anymore nowadays.
Optimized the Locate in Catalog toolbar layout; text label is now integrated within edit control on systems that support the new edit control.
Changed a bit how non-removable media is handled in the program, such as cataloged hard disks. When attempting to access actual files on a fixed drive which is not found, the program now gives a chance to connect the drive and retry, instead of simply notifying user of failure. This offers more options when working with drives that are non-removable by definition, but are really not - for example, hard disks connected externally via USB, firewire, or external SATA connectors, and support hot-plugging.
Message boxes on Windows Vista now more closely match the new Vista style.
Open/Save dialogs on Windows Vista support new Vista-style dialogs.
Updated Tips window.
Catalogs with active read-only limited access now show a lock icon in the status bar.
Fixed a problem introduced in the previous version, after using searching on some catalogs random errors would be reported while browsing.
Fixed handling of Ext column in reports.
A LOT of minor user interface tweaks and improvements throughout the program.
