Show overlay icons in search results

Post by *MVV » 2019-07-29, 05:33 UTC

Currently TC doesn't show overlay icons in search results, but it would be nice to show 'em. E.g. I search for recently changed files and want to copy ones that were changed in GIT repository, these files have red exclamation mark in overlay, but I don't see any overlays in search results...

Will this be improved in 9.50?

It would unfortunately be slow because TC would have to get the virtual folder for the directory containing the file, retreive the overlay, then repreat that for the next file etc. In a worst case, each file could be in a different directory.

Maybe as a separate option?

I think it should be configurable:
(*) Don't load overlays
( ) Load overlays only for visible part of list
( ) Load overlays for [ 100] list entries at once
( ) Load all overlays at once

Of course, already loaded overlays should be cached.

I think loading overlays just should be done in a background, so it will not cause any slowdowns. And yes, overlays for visible items should be loaded first (just like TC does for thumbnails in thumbnail mode).

You are right, I have described the worst case when loading in background is still damn slow.
