Display seconds in Details view... [FIXED]

Post by topbanana »

Not being able to see the seconds in the Date Modifies column is diabolical for me.
I deal with a LOT of photos, and these naturally can have multiple photos taken in any minute... So any date/time listed will be the same for many, many photo files.

Please, please, please give us the option to show these!

File Explorer kept getting dumbed down, 'beautified', it's useful details being stripped out... please keep E++ feature rich, restoring all the nitty-gritty fine details, that us techies that use E++ need!

This request was made here https://github.com/derceg/explorerplusplus/issues/149
Build 1.4.0.1656 fixes this at https://ci.appveyor.com/project/derceg/ ... /artifacts
Code details https://github.com/derceg/explorerplusp ... 0c6223091a

As I understand it, 'GetTimeFormat' used to be 'TIME_NOSECONDS; and is now just 'localSystemTime,' which presumably means that Explorer++ will now use whatever the 'Long time' format is defined as in Windows.

eg. In Windows 7 in Control Panel\Region and Language\Formats\Date and Time Formats.
Long time needs to be HH:mm:ss or H:mm:ss or h:mm:ss tt (using the drop down), then click Apply. Refreshing Explorer++ should now show seconds. Short Time has no effect.
Can also use Additional Settings to show Customize Format panel. Select 'Time' tab and change to one of the above by selecting in the drop down or manually to something else, eg hh:mm::ss tt. Then Apply/OK and Apply again in 'Region and Language'.

This is perhaps an elegant solution as Windows already provides a customisation method, saves having to re-invent the wheel, or code an extra option within EPP.

Thank you so much David for acting on this request. :D
