So, the trick is that the link should be to a folder. Links to files are not shown.
So, I have set option NoDereferenceLink:= true  in the OpenDialog1 in the ImageList form. Now no error message is shown, though folders can still be selected.
Should I submit a patch or it would be more convenient for you to fix it yourself?


Still I have no way to disable folder selection.Maybe it is not possible, since it would cause problems when items are selected with ctrl+a/ shift+ shift/ mousedrag.
Maybe it should not be disabled, but images in the selected folders should be added to the list (if possible to implement).

Please do post patches, I like patches.  :)

I would propose to use the image browser instead. This makes me think of adding CTRL-A shortcut with it!

I already replaced the OpenDialog for File>Open and for Select>Load Selection. I would like to do the same where ever an image is opened. This is in part motivated by the fact that the application crashes under Linux on those dialog boxes. However I have not found any plan for the "folder browser" dialog yet

This is not completely replace the dialogs yet as it is not the case under MacOS because it seems not to work. However, maybe the new version of the image browser would work well on MacOS too. I don't know.

I think it is safe to ignore links that may be returned by dialog boxes.

What about FullScreen mode? Something like View > FullScreen (F11)

Code: [Select]
Form.BorderStyle:=bsNone
Form.WindowState:=wsFullScreen

This code maybe is not compatible with View > Dock layers and colors.

Edit: a cool way to have a docking toolbar

And a way to theme a panel and a ttoolbar (of course maybe you already know it)

Patch is attached.

I wonder if it won't become too heavy. It will give it a try.
And once again it occurs that I neither edit, nor paste in the address field. I am pretty sure I have fixed it some time ago.  :'(
Also in the open dialog several images can be selected, but only one can be open at a time. You should disable multiple items selection, unless you something unknown to me can be done with multiple selected files.

Thanks.

Well, yes you can open multiple files, by pressing Enter or clicking on the new top left button. It has the same effect as drag'n'dropping files. In fact I have added the optional multiple selection in order to make it compatible with the image list.

I guess I have not applied the change on the directory. There was some problem with the update of the list of files at that time. However now it may be ok to apply it. Thanks for bringing the subject back. I suppose you may feel sad that your contribution was not applied. Please be assured that I do try to include everything that is proposed. I may not however remember everything.

The image browser on my computer is faster to show than the open dialog, however it can be slow afterwards while making the thumbnails if there are big images. Is it what you are talking about?

Why are ALL conversations about LazPaint done in this single message thread!?  It makes it impossible to find a specific topic, follow a discussion etc. %)

I suppose you may feel sad that your contribution was not applied.

I feel unpleasant when I try paste the path to a folder which I have just copied from the commander and it is not happening. So I have to spent a few minutes go there manually.
But here is the good side- I came to the idea that I might borrow the idea of some Linux DEs, which IFAIK is implemented in Win7- clicking on a part of the path leads the user directly there. I will try to find a PC with Win 7 to exactly how it is works and how to switch to edit mode.
 

The image browser on my computer is faster to show than the open dialog, however it can be slow afterwards while making the thumbnails if there are big images. Is it what you are talking about?

Exactly. I will try some tests.
Also, I'd propose to change the right arrow used for "directory up" to an up arrow, as a more common icon for that purpose.

Yes, I understand the frustration.

I have put back the direct edit of the path. About the idea of clicking on part of the path, this can also be done by switching from text edit to this mode.

About the arrow, I just changed it to a left arrow. It was an up arrow, but it was confusing with the icon to load the files at the far left. I am also more used to the up arrow, however then for clarity I would prefer another icon to load the files.

EDIT: I applied the NoDereferenceLinks to all open dialogs I could find.

I don't think there is a particular reason for that. Is it that you would like more clarity?

Not sure if you meant it as a joke or not, but on a serious note. I do host a NNTP news server, and have made offers before where I said I would host newsgroups for open source projects for free. So if Lazpaint project wanted to move discussions to a NNTP news server, all they need to do is ask.

Not just me, but yes. Somebody might search for a specific topic or issue or feature request regarding LazPaint. All you ever get is the monster of a thread. No easy way to navigate specific questions and answers. :-/

Of course I knew you ran a news server and that you prefer it for tiopf support. That's why I posted.

How different is a newsgroup server from a forum?

I would be happy to have the discussions a bit more organised. In any case, I will think about creating new threads when a subject is raised here.
