Okay. That's not a problem. :D

While testing, I noticed a very minor GUI issue - it doesn't preserive the placement of previous folder that was selected. I know I'm not being clear so let's use a example..

Suppose directory structure were like this...

FolderOne
FolderTwo
--SubOne
--SubTwo
FolderThree

Suppose I entered the FolderTwo, then backtraced back up. It would now select FolderOne and not FolderTwo. Same applies if I enter the folder inside FolderTwo named SubTwo and returned there. SubTwo should be selected and not SubOne.

Ask away if you don't understand this. I can be unclear at times. :D

Many thanks for this app (just installed it lastnight as a replacement for FileManagerPro beta).

My initial impressions are fairly good. I do like the capability to "associate file types". Although, I tried to associate "txt" with "BBNotePad". Everytime, I select a "txt" file it fires off BBNotePad but that app doesnt display the file I tried to open. Could it be that BBNotePad does not accept any additional parameters being passed to it? I do realise that I can use the "Open File (Plain Text)" to view the files; although I mostly edit them

I would appreciate it if you could also consider the capability to :
* copy directories/sub-directories
* zip/rar support

@Iare Tosevite: got the idea - simply "remember where you came from" is what you want...

that sounds really nice - I did not tried that FileManager app... so if you replaces BBFileScout with it, then it sounds like the functionality is more or less the same already?

You hit the nail on it's head - that's what I liked to say in my announcement the app you associate have to support to be called with a file as cmd line parameter... In the case of BBNotePad I just can assume, that the developer forgot to implement such a function (cause he never imagined, that a tool like BBFileScout could exist) - it should not be a big deal for the developer to add such a support... but I can't do here anything

integrate an TextEditor is on my todo list (even if I noticed, that apps like BBNotePad exist) - it's not too complicated to write such a Editor (at least I think so) - the current implemented SimpleTextViewer took only 20min to implement... and it would be just seconds to make the text itself editable... at least I hope that you have noticed, that you can select & copy text from this viewer...

you can be sure, that both are on the todo list - well to be honest, ZIP/RAR is more on my wish-list - since I did not find good sources to be able to code a unzip or unrar in pure RIM Java [in JavaStd. World (PC/Unix/Mac) it would be a piece of cake - but on a MobileDevice there is no native support to access compressed files - so all have be written from the scratch - but since there are unzipper apps available on the BB it's for sure possible to implement... might be that the developer of BBNotepad is willing to share some of his sources?

here is the next major update

BBFileScout update to 0.3.7

What's new?
  • added the 8110 to the supported devices (thanks Susu!)
  • Copy complete directory structures (including all it's content) in the same way as single files can be copied
  • Delete directories with all its content with a single click
  • Edit plain text files:
    • Once it's enabled in the options you can edit the text files that you have opened in the SimpleTextViewer. But BBFileScout is still far away from becoming a fully functional text editor (that might change in further releases).
    • Save text UTF-8 encoded
  • Options:
    • Allow edting in SimpleTextViewer

Installation & Update
You will find the download link (incl. OTA) at the BBFileScout Homepage


Once again: Deleting or renaming files from your Blackberry can harm the core functionality of the device - use this function at your own risk! - Don't blame me, if you have bricked your BB.

Looking forward for your comments
Matthias

Hi Matthias, many thx for the extremely quick turnaround with the new capabilities which all seem to be working flawlessly...

I sometimes have some German text files which contain characters such as :
Code:
 
which are not displayed correctly within the text editor.

Hence, would you be able to auto-detect the character set being used?

I see that the "Save" option is there within the editor; "Save As" option would also be useful so the original file can be kept intact if need be.


The zip/rar capability could initially just unrar/unzip the files with ability to zip/rar files at a later stage if at all possible.

Great App,

Thank you for the time you're putting into this handy application.

P.S. Is there anyway we can use the delete key? instead of just having the menu>scroll>delete option?

my apologize to you fkjr2 (and all other's)... that was a BUG (*shame*)... it's fixed now and you can update to 0.3.8

once you have a PDF reader installed you can register a custom file type with the extension 'pdf'

Currently there is no keyboard/key shortcuts defined - that will be done once I see the complete list of available functions in the app - then I will map them to keys [I hope that's fine for you right now]

Hi Fred -> *shame*

the only thing I could imagine is, that you might have an app installed, that is causing the problem (e.g. none localized app names) (when the code is trying to retrieve the list of available applications)...

I have made a 0.3.8.1 already that tries to "catch" all possible exceptions in this case...

I hope both issues are some sort of "solved" right now - even if I agree, that "auto enc" detection would had been nice...

Hey thanks for replying.

Another suggestion i have. Is there anyway you can have the ringtone names disappear from the actual ringtone menu? I can delete the ringtones from the system folder and all the samples but the names remain?.

I hope i explained that right.

P.S. Can we view root system files? like i mean, deep files. Lets say, the directory where the splash screen is?

Out of curiosity, whats that icon to the left of your avatar? are you working on a gps map application? would be sweet. Ill be a beta tester for it.

Quick question: how is the sort order determined for files and folders?
