Enable Sort on Progress Bar

Postby Voyager62 » Sat Jun 16, 2018 7:13 pm

I'd like to be able to sort on the progress bar and possibly the remaining bytes to download. The progress bar should be easy, Tixati and I think eMule (haven't used it in years) already have that feature. But sorting by remaining bytes may mean a separate column as in Tixati. I frequently sort my download list depending on what I want as priority at the time and I'd like to be able to quickly finish up posts that are almost done downloading are only have a few KB left to finish.

Another problem is that there is a delay between sorting and Newsbin honoring the request by downloading from the top and not what it's already started, even if it's at the bottom.

You're downloading faster than the files are assembling so, there's a bunch of data in the air. When you sort, until the already downloaded data finishes processing, the new sort order won't be obeyed.

Yeah, figured that.

Would still like to be able to sort on progress bar column though. You must store the percentage numerically somewhere to know how far to fill it.
