Now that I've got uLister working...

Post by *Andante » 2018-10-10, 21:48 UTC

What key can I press to see a file's original source?

I went in to WIndows Explorer, but can't find a way to see inside a file. I also went into TC's options, but it looks like I can only delete a viewer, not temporarily disable it.

I wish there were a way I could turn uLister on and off at will.

Please take a closer look at Lister's Options menu. There you can change the view mode, including Text mode (which is the "original source" you probably meant), Hex and Multimedia (which switches to any plugins).

In Lister, just press the '4'-key on your keyboard to switch plugins or view modes.
If there is nothing to switch, you may need to install more plugins, or try keys '1', 2 ,... see Options menu in Lister what that means.

Thanks, Dalai and Stefan! I tried some keys earlier, but must have pressed the wrong ones.

This helps a lot when uLister is showing me a file that is missing its extension, and I need to figure out what program it came from! :-P

(Unfortunately, there still are times when uLister is able to decipher a file with an extension, but when I look at the source, I can't figure out where it's from!)

I am not sure what you are looking for, but in case you want to know what is probably the correct extension of a file without extension, you can install a small utility named TrID.
It can be install as stand alone program by running it with filename as parameter (http://mark0.net/soft-tridnet-e.html),
Or as total-commander plugin, to show the extension by Create new column (http://mark0.net/soft-trid-e.html).

Since you have Ulister working can you provide me with some guidance on how to dot his. Another post I made asking for help garnered no responses.

My initial questions is this.

Is Ulister showing in the list of Lister plugins? Should it be showing? I'm not seeing it in the list even though it installed without any issues and I see the Ulister folder the Plugins/wlx; the Oracle DLL files are a sub-directory called Resdist.

Thanks for any help you can provide. Btw, I've tried all the suggestions in other threads about getting Ulister working, but when I hit F3 on a file the file opens in the standard built-in lister.

Regards,
Charles

Resdist should be redist
