    Thank you for another worthy app.

    BTW, is there any way I can set the auto-wrap on?

    It can be supported in a future version.

    3.1 has a dark UI and a word wrap settings. It requires .NET Core 3.0 being installed.

    Thanks.

    Since the old settings persisted and didn't allow to be overwritten, I had to manually delete the settings.conf file in

    C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\MediaInfo.NET\

    and everything works fine afterwards.

    Now one more thing I desire for is that you put an icon in the context menu so that I can tell it from other mediainfo-ish apps.

    I don't know if icon is possible using the registry, it's possible via shell extension but my Open with++ does not support icons and I don't have plans to support it because it does not really have many users.

    Can you please add the 'highlight search keyword' function?
    Thanks.

    I looked into the "Commit" list on github to read the summaries of the commits like in a changelog to learn about the latest changes.

    That was not successful.

    Code:
    -
    -
    -

    Apparently ".NET Core 3.0" is not a subset of ".NET Framework 4.8"... Do I need as many .NET runtimes as I need Visual C++ runtimes? Why, Microsoft?

    Unfortunately, there is not the slightest message when .NET Core 3.0 is not installed. The application just doesn't run.

    .NET Framework was discontinued because of breaking changes that were needed to advance .NET.

    .NET Core is the successor, in a year the name will change again to just .NET 5.0 without framework and without core.

    The next release after .NET Core 3.0 will be .NET 5. The .NET Framework will be deprecated, and .NET 5 will be the only .NET going forward hence the removal of the "Core" branding and skipping of version 4 to avoid confusion with the .NET Framework 4.x.

    Quote from Scott Hunter, Director Program Management, .NET

    New applications should be built on .NET Core. .NET Core is where future investments in .NET will happen. Existing applications are safe to remain on .NET Framework which will be supported. Existing applications that want to take advantage of the new features in .NET should consider moving to .NET Core. As we plan into the future, we will be bringing in even more capabilities to the platform. You can read about our plans here.

    Thanks a lot.

    Search highlighting and F11/F12 navigation DO come in handy.

    Setting the default window width/height is what I have been missing for a LONG time in the default MediaInfo GUI app.
    Your app fills in the hole that's been around with the default MediaInfo GUI app.

    BTW, arrow key scrolling (left, right or up, down or pgup, pgdn) is not enabled while scrolling by the mouse wheel works fine. (ver 4.0)
    I set auto word-wrap on.
    Is it only me or is this a bug?

    It's not really a bug but rather a limitation in the control which is a standard control called RichTextBox of the WPF UI framework, maybe I can do something.

    4.1

    - encoder parameters have a nice presentation
    - if the text has focus the caret is visible and key scrolling works

    Thanks.
    The breakdown presentation of the encoding settings comes as a good helper.

    BTW, I see that the presentation of the encoding settings is enabled only in the raw-view.
    Is it intended or did you forget about the non raw-view mode?

    Just forgotten, there will be a bunch of improvements so a new version will come.

    Btw. I tried to get up/down key text scrolling even when the search field has focus but could only get it working somehow and not perfectly.

    Pretty good new! Good job!

    BTW, I'd like to talk about a few things.

    1. Compact summary is enabled only in the raw view. Is this intended?

    2. There is only dark mode. Isn't light mode possible as an option?

    3. There are no 'cancel'/'confirm' buttons in the settings dialog.

    4. The breakdown presentation is somehow incorrect for some parameters. For example, me_range and chroma_me belong to Other instead of Motion Search, and b_pyramid, b_adapt, b_bias, and keyint_min belong to Other instead of Slice Decision.

    5. I'm wondering if you're interested in internationalization of the app. If so, I'm willing to help you with my mother language - Korean.

    Thanks.

    It's probably some work to enable it for normal view.

    2. There is only dark mode. Isn't light mode possible as an option?
    Also quite a bit work I think, I'm not really a pro in that UI framework.

    3. There are no 'cancel'/'confirm' buttons in the settings dialog.
    It does not appear important as many modern apps don't have it.

    4. The breakdown presentation is somehow incorrect for some parameters. For example, me_range and chroma_me belong to Other instead of Motion Search, and b_pyramid, b_adapt, b_bias, and keyint_min belong to Other instead of Slice Decision.
    That info was extracted from staxrip which in return used info from the x265 documentation.

    5. I'm wondering if you're interested in internationalization of the app. If so, I'm willing to help you with my mother language - Korean.
    Maybe at some time, thanks for the offer and thanks for the feedback, I greatly appreciate it.

    For now I will continue with staxrip or mpv.net or maybe take a break. Please use the issue tracker if you want to make sure that things don't get forgotten.

    I see. Thank you for the prompt answers.

    MediaInfo.NET is way better than the official GUI app as it is now.

    I did a last polishing today before work on staxrip and mpv.net continues.

    Thank you JKyle for the great feedback.

    Code:
    5.2
    ---
    
    - in the settings dialog the layout was improved,
      the font picker was replaced with a drop down and
      a link was added to open the settings folder
    - using raw view, MediaInfo is now queried only once
      instead of twice which is marginally more efficient
    - on startup MediaInfo.NET registers itself at
      HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\
      which enables third party apps to find and start MediaInfo.NET
    - a assembly title attribute was added so the shell will use
      MediaInfo.NET instead of MediaInfoNET (for instance in the
      Explorer 'Open with' menu)
    - the website was improved and added to the context menu
    - the about dialog shows now the MediaInfo version
    - all message boxes were migrated to use the TaskDialog API
      which has a improved presentation and copy and support
      links in case of an error

    screenshot of the improved settings dialog:

    Next staxrip build will integrate MediaInfo.NET.
