WS_FTP 2006

Post by j2o » Mon Aug 22, 2005 1:10 pm

Hey Guys!

Right, heres my situation.
i Love WS_FTP (http://www.ipswitch.com/products/ws_ftp/index.asp)
But theres just one small, tiny, little thing wrong with it. (and i think restorator can help?)

the problem is that in the sites manager, the comments box is just one line. just one line for all my FTP/site info? no way! i need a big multi-line textbox for all my info.... !!

iv had a bash at it, and i managed to extend the text box only to find that when you "ok" and save it, the text you put in a multi-line format gets screwed up when you view it again.. so there must be a configurable text format file somewhere that you can edit? maybe?

the .dll that i found all the dialog's in is called: res0409.dll
and the dialog is: 3275

so if anyone wants to take the challenge up, id love to see if anyone could do it!! :-) hehe..! (bet you cant!)

Have you used the ES_MULTILINE flag to extend it to multi-line?

So if that does not work, I don't think you can improve WS_FTP in that regard: it will have some internal logic that treats the entered text. Newline characters are often not save dcorrectly if not special care is taken.

It's probably a good idea to contact the authors of WS_FTP to ask them to make it a multi-line field.
