Thanks VadiMGP,

Doesn't it support Win.9x or WinNT?

Sorry, no. May be later (if there will be many NT users) i'll add support for NT, but Windows 9x doesn't have console management at all, and it is almost impossible to build reliable console plugin.

I'm getting a slight conflict problem. I have TC to search in the filelist with letters plus the dialog box. This causes a slight problem if the focus leaves the command prompt. Nothing really serious; otherwise good work!

2pdavit Do you mean search by Alt+Ctrl+<letter>? And what happens if you set TC search settings for Alt+<letter>?

2VadiMGP

The console seems like a good idea, and appears to be working, but I see no text. Apparently the text in the window is black, and since the window background is black, so I see nothing.

Any hints?

Thanx

PS. WinXP/32bit Color

I should add that detaching the console reveals the text in the proper colors...

Thanks

1. What OS you use? What languages are installed? What is language of system locale?
2. Try use another font, i.e Lucida Console.

Hi VadiMGP

OS: XPPro
32bit color
Only English installed
Locale is North America, or whatever.

TConsole is definitely writing to the panel. For instance, if I enter DIR, the panel scroll bar moves down proportionally to the number of files in the currrent directory.

I have tried several different fonts, including Lucida console (was using Terminal)... none display in the panel unless it is detached, then everything that was written to the console window before it was detached displays properly.

Perhaps we need a font color option in the font setting...???


Thanx

No, that wouldn't be a problem since you are using a key combination. The problem occurs when I have the option to "Letters - with search dialog". I haven't tried it but probably you will get a similar behavior by using the "Letter Only" option. The reason is that by starting typing a DOS command for execution TC triggers the search option, which gets activated. Of course, as I said on my previous post this is only applicable if the focus is on the console window and there's absolutely no problem if the focus is on the command line bit of TC. It is natural I guess and probably a workaround will be if you could automatically send the focus to the command line if somehow the console windows gets it (the focus) by a user action. Of course, you should make sure to deactivate that after the termination of the console window otherwise you won't be able to work on the filelist where the console was loaded (since you will be taken automatically to the command line). Just a thought! The problem is not really annoying for me anyway!

No, text/background color should be the same as in the real console.
You can change colors via standard "color" command.

Try change buffer/window size in detached console.

From the panel title. Wink

2VadiMPG:

tricky answer Smile

can I have the bit of code which handles this, please.
I'm planning to add a few features to my VSS plugin and this would be very helpful.
Thanks in advance.

Some notes:

- I can't add it to Hotlist Directory with Ctrl+D - I must do it manually.

- When I type "exit" in secure mode - new window opens (with contents of console and TC title) but it is inactive - the only thing I can do with it is closing.

- I can't go to secure mode if start typing in TC command line anything, even if I delete everything form the command line. I must click the TConsole with a mouse or press Esc before Alt+Ctrl+3 - is it by design?

- If I go back and then forward with an Alt+arrow the whole window looks as it switches twice. It's easy to see if you do it like this: In the left panel I go to TConsole, in the right I have F: disk opened. TConsole opens with C:\ path. Then I go back and forward. I can see how TConnsole opens with C:\ path and then swithes to F:\
