Internal associations: individual icons and predefined selection types

Reviving an old suggestion:

I support the idea of individual icons per filetype in internal associations. It could work like this.
FilterX.icon=PATH_TO_FILTER_X_ICON
works as the default icon for all icons covered by this association. On top of this logic let the user define filetype-specific icons. Something like:
FilterX.icon.bmp=PATH_TO_BMP_ICON or even
FilterX.icon.jp*g=PATH_TO_JPEG_ICON
Just to elaborate a little more:

Code: Select all

[Searches]
MyImageFormats_SearchFor=*.bmp *.gif *.jpg *.png *.psd *.tif *.tiff *.tga *.svg *.jpeg *.webp

[Associations]
Filter5=>MyImageFormats
Filter5_open=%commander_path%\irfanview.exe "%1"
Filter5_Paint=%commander_path%\mspaint.exe "%1"
Filter5.icon=%commander_path%\imageformat_default.ico
Filter5.icon.bmp=%commander_path%\bmp.ico
Filter5.icon.png=%commander_path%\png.ico
Filter5.icon.jpg=%commander_path%\jpg.ico
update: maybe even icons for the "actions:" in the the windows contextmenu :?:

It is esy to do with TC 9.50: just define icons for specific file types in separate internal associations, and use multi-type one for assosiating with programs.

like this?

Code: Select all


[Searches]
MyImageFormats_SearchFor=*.bmp *.gif *.jpg *.png *.psd *.tif *.tiff *.tga *.svg *.jpeg *.webp

[Associations]
Filter1=>MyImageFormats
Filter1_open=%commander_path%\irfanview.exe "%1"
Filter1.icon=%commander_path%\imageformat_default.ico

Filter2=*.png
Filter2.icon=%commander_path%\png.ico

Filter3=*.jpg
Filter3.icon=%commander_path%\jpg.ico
doesn't work for me. no matter in which order i put the associations either the icon is not showing or it is and the association is not working.

yes, of course that will work.
but that's not what i was suggesting. in this case i still have to define the "open" cmd for all individual extensions.

I would expect merging these parameters of internal associations too, that would be quite useful sometimes.
