Alert on completion of long operations

Post by Spire » Wed Apr 18, 2007 4:51 pm

I find the Long operation beep feature in the FTP plug-in extremely useful. I would like to see this feature extended to FAR Manager itself, so that it can be used in conjunction with any long operation, including internal operations such as copying files.

Like the FTP plug-in, the feature should allow the user to configure how long an operation would have to take before triggering the audible alert on completion. It should also allow the user to specify what type of alert should be sounded. Possible options would be: default beep; Windows system event sound (user-specified event name); custom sound (user-specified filename).

Another nice feature would be the option to also display a dialog box showing exactly what time the operation completed, and how long it took.
