Display file name and file size in status bar upon hovering over a treemap tile #30
I admit I never used WinDirStat (I don't use Windows all that much). How does it handle an item in the tree view being selected at the same time? That behaviour would be an inconsistency if an item in the tree view or in the treemap is selected; it would be unclear what item the status bar refers to.
Anyway, using the status bar rather than a tool tip is a completely different matter, and that sounds much more intuitive to me - except for that issue of hover vs. currently selected item (and there is almost always something selected in the tree view and thus in the treemap).
WinDirStat can run very well on Wine, so maybe you should try it :)
WinDirStat shows the selected file in the status bar until you hover another file in the color map. If you go outside the color map area, it displays the selected file again.
I think this is actually more intuitive. This gives you the chance to inspect file sizes and file names without actually changing the tree view, which may be undesirable.
Please note that WinDirStat does not show the file size upon hovering, this is where QDirStat could be made better than WinDirStat :)
If you think this is inconsistent behaviour, you can introduce a preference to make both behaviours possible :)
Thanks a lot for considering this.
