My problem under wine is... You know where columns under trigger and alias dialogs.... like 'trigger', 'seg', etc... i try to move Label or Group to the front of all other columns but it wont work that way under Wine i think. How to get this fixed so i can see Group or Label columns front of all other columns?


Thanks.

This has been an issue with Wine itself, not MUSHclient. I personally just scroll around instead of trying to force it. For the life of me, I cannot remember if I listed that as a bug through Bugzilla or not... I should check.

Or is there a indirect way to alter the order of column... like registry or something else to change that?

If you use Regedit (which works under Wine) and look here:



HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Gammon Software Solutions\MUSHclient\World Configuration


You will see various entries like this "alias list Col 0 Order". The default is the value for that to be zero.

Now if you swap the first two columns then:


alias list Col 0 Order = 1
alias list Col 1 Order = 0


By juggling those around you can get the columns to appear in any order. I would do that with MUSHclient closed, I think.

And that's the issue Wine has with this. It causes the order to stay as the default value. There is no workaround as far as I can tell. If I remember right, it was not even possible to resize these windows until wine-0.9.27 or so. I should have specified that there is no known workaround as far as I know in my original post.

I think reconfiguring the column order is a function call that appeared relatively recently in Windows. It is possible that this function is not implemented in Wine. Thus using regedit merely (as it turns out) is another way of hitting the same roadblock.

I thought your problem might have been that dragging the column headers didn't work, but if changing the registry also doesn't work then it is a different problem.

That functionality is not considered a "high priority" by the Wine dev team. Not being able to rearrange the order of labels does not prevent people from being able to use the software. Out of curiousity, where do the labels come from? Still part of MFC? If so, I might go insane one day and try to track down the problem in Wine myself (or at least thrust it upon friends better equipped to deal with ripping apart Wine).

athough there is other way for me to to make label or group by default is to compile my own customized version of mushclient? just a thought. where can i find the order thing in .c or .rc?

thanks!

EDIT:

alas seem there no makefile in mushclient 4.19 src zip.. I guess.. I probably couldn't compile it under x-cross compiler on linux then. oh well.

It uses MFC, so it won't compile under gcc, unfortunately. There will be heaps of references to MFC files (.h files) which are part of MFC and not in the MUSHclient distribution.

Just did a quick test on Wine, and LVM_SETCOLUMNORDERARRAY throws a "fixme", so changing things around definitely will not work. Tracing it back through the source does show that I might actually be capable of fixing this... given a nice testing environment which will not screw up any current installation. I suppose I can just kind of fudge it on a separate account on this box.

And yes, recompiling MUSHclient with a different order in those menus would work, if you have a compiling environment and the MFC libraries for it. The cost required to get the MFC libraries is really the only thing completely preventing me from poking around with MUSHclient too much though. Winelib will not work for this, since MFC is a proprietary library created by Microsoft, and it will not included in Wine.
