Request for options hover text w/ ini variable names

Post by raccoon » Wed Jan 26, 2022 10:39 pm

When hovering over any of the options settings, it displays a brief explanation of the option via tooltip text.

Could you add "\r\n\r\n%setting_name%=%setting_value%" to this hover text for us hackers and forum helpers?

Example:

General -> Results -> [x] Open path with double click on path text
Open the location of the selected file when double clicking in the
path column.

full_row_select_double_click_path=1

I will put on my TODO list to add an option to show ini names in tooltips.

Thank you for the suggestions.

This will come in handy later when I add a search to the options page.

(Thanks for that suggestion. Cause I knew there was a tooltip I would like, but I didn't remember for what program ;-).)


So... same sort of request for Properties.


Like I was doing something & I wanted "parent", so I find the Property, Parent Path, & I was like, lets see what that does, & it was what I needed.

But I didn't know what the actual Property name was.
I guessed, parentpath:, which turned out to be right, but it need not have been.

The properties select dialog has a preview column that will show property values using the focused item from the result list.

I will consider a tooltip to show a brief description and example or preview.
Thank you for the suggestion.
