Directory selector sort order incorrect
« on: July 06, 2018, 04:36:31 pm »
I don't know how I never noticed this before, but the Slick directory picker (ex: Git -> Compare Directory With Git) sorts in the wrong order.

Explorer and cmd line tools like "dir /on" sort thusly:
Code: [Select]
A
A.B
A2
AA
A-B

While the slick dir picker sorts like this:
Code: [Select]
A-B
A.B
A2
A
AA


Also, the title bar for this dialog for git compare with dir is wrong. It is
Quote
"Path to update"
but should be something like
Quote
"Pick root directory for git comparison"

SlickEdit isn't trying to match Explorer.

However, the directory picker sort order here doesn't look right.

The Open tool window displays the files this way:

A
A-B
A.B
A2
AA

Which is correct but does not match Explorer.

We will look into this.

I changed the caption for this dialog so it makes a little more sense.
