I don't know if you people will like it, but anjuta has an extremely
good file-selector widget. It has all the features of gtkfileselector
plus many more. I summarize the features below:
1) Clean, elegant and decent look.
2) Basic file manipulation, such delete, rename, new folder etc.
3) Tab auto-completion just like gtk-fileselection.
4) Histroy browsing, like back, forward, up, home.
5) File type filter for various file extentions. This is something we
have been missing in gtkfileselection for ages.
6) Show/hide hidden files.
6) Single and Multiple selection mode.
Things need to be done if used for gtk+:
1) It was basically designed for gnome, but the widgets used are basic
gtkwidgets. so, there should not be much problem in cleaning up the code
for gtk+ only. In fact, we are ready to do that.
2) API wrappings to provide backward compatibility to the old gtk
People wishing to try it out can get it from gnome cvs at:
Fame may be fleeting but obscurity is forever.
