Column view configured with extension count

Post by *EvilQoo »

This would only be possible with a special content plugin that only returns values to TC when TC is done passing file list items to that plugin (and the full number of files is known). In general TC passes a single item at a time to a plugin and waits for the plugin to return anything. This special plugin would need to return a flag (something about background/delayed operation) so that TC asks the plugin again later.

I don't think such a plugin exists yet.

...... the total count of that extension?

- go to your folder
- open an PowerShell box and type:
Get-ChildItem | Group Extension | Sort name
-or f.ex.-
Get-ChildItem -file -recurse | Group Extension | Sort Count -desc



In TC you can create an button to execute that command for you on one mouse click.....


HTH?

A quick and dirty manual method not quite responsive to your question:
1. Set Preferences - Layout to "Show Status Bar"
2. Set Preferences - Quick Search to "Letters - with search dialog"
3. In a pane, type, e.g., jpg
4. Hit Esc
5. See the file count in the Status Bar at the bottom

Another approach, but not what you asked for precisely: Put the file panel cursor on a .jpg file and Press Alt+Num+ (plus on the numeric keypad), the all .jpg files gets selected and you can read the number of files in the status line below the file panel. Press Alt+Num- to deselect again.

Or you can use this button to only show files with the same extension as the one under the cursor:

Code: Select all

TOTALCMD#BAR#DATA
cd
%Z;"*.%E"
wcmicons.dll,25
Show Only Files with Same Extension


-1
To make the button:
1. Mark the green text above (click SELECT ALL).
2. Copy it to the ClipBoard (press Ctri+C).
3. Right click on TC's buttonbar and choose "Paste".

WinDirStat can do what you want, although it seems to always work recursively (showing the count for the directory and all its children).
