GUI suggestion

Recommended Posts

The GUI can be improved, I don't want to call this a bug. And I am talking about the CC Registry tool. Suppose CC has found 20 errors in the registry and the user has highlighted and selected the first 10 of those errors. The bug in the GUI becomes apparent when the user deletes one entry/line. The amount of selected entries/lines declines to nine. But CC continues to highlight 10 lines in the registry section.

Willy, can you provide more info?

 

What version of CCleaner are you using?

What windows OS are you on?

 

Thank you!

 

P.S. Please elaborate more on your registry problem.

 

Highlight 10 out of 20 errors found, the 1st 10 as you said, then user deleted 1 entry\line, or do you mean they delete the 1st 10 since they are highlighted?

 

Could you post a screenshot of the "problem" & draw in mspaint what you perceive to be wrong?

Your question seems a little open ended & up to a few different possibilities, so by knowing what version of CCleaner you are running & the OS you are using, it will help a lot.

 

The screenshot will really help, as will elaborating slightly on the problem.

I was able to recreate this

(1) I have entries 3 and 4 highlighted

 

(2) After fixing those two entries, 3 and 4 remain highlighted despite being different entries (ie. highlight targets line # and not line content)

I see what you are saying.

I tested it also in XP & the same problem occurred here.

 

It appears to be across all platforms.

 

Run Regedit.

Highlight problems to fix & click fix.

Items are fixed & removed, but the highlight remains & selects the same number of objects from the issues that still remain to be fixed.

 

If you had 2 items highlighted, it highlights 2 of the items left to be fixed, & if you highlighted 30, it blankets 30 remaining items. Instead of simply disappearing.

 

It is kinda weird. I agree.

And there's another GUI issue in the CC registry section (v2.35). Keywords: gridlines. When CC has detected a lot of registry errors/issues and one screen can't show all errors then on the right hand side a scroll bar appears. So far, so good. But when the user clicks on the scroll bar (not on the scroll bar button !!) then CC completely messes up the gridlines.

 

Does CC use the same ""gridline algorithm"" as (a previous version (??)) of Recuva does ? Because in the program exactly the same issue surfaces (surfaced ?).

 

Solutions:

1. get rid of the grid lines.

2. Improve the gridline algorithm. There's - IMO - no need to ""re-invent the wheel"" because in Defraggler (v1.21) that (gridline) algorithm works perfectly. And the Piriform folks could use that algorithm in Recuva as well.
