Reload modified files automatically

Postby Tahir » Sat May 09, 2009 4:26 pm

Hello,

An option to reload modified files automatically when WinCmp window is activated would help much.

There may be a general option that controls global behaviour and/or a separate option for each file type filter.

Thank you, regards.

Right now you should have message box warning about that, isn't that enough?

Hi,

Sometimes I compare the output files of an application. I run the application from other window and return to WinCmp. I already know the files were modified but find myself still one key/click away from the comparison window.

Thank you anyway, Compare It! is still powerful without this option. :)

Regards.

I second this request.

Here is how I work
- The CompareIt window is open showing the source file I am working on along with the source version
- The editor is open with the source file and I make changes
- I switch to CompareIt to review my changes and it prompts me to reload the file - I know it's been changed and I just want it to automatically reload


It's a common option amongst editors - here is UltraEdit's version of the option:
File Change Detection
0 disable
1 prompt for update when files change
2 automatically update changed files

Ok, thank you, I guess I can add that.
