is it possible to make a kind of download manager window. when u start download some file at the same time, u get for each file 1 window with some information. but what i aks is can u make an all download window where u put all transfers into 1 big window, just saving some places for other things on my screen. just making one big download window with all transfers in it, like in Opera or Mozilla, but seeing also same data what i can now see it, too. like speed, username.etc

I don't see a need for this if you're using mIRC/DCC/IRC legitimately. The only people I can think of (perhaps not you, but for 98% of the IRC population) that this would come in handy for is people who use mIRC for file trading with XDCC/FServes. This is not the purpose of mIRC.

If you have, for some reason, quite a lot of DCC sessions going you can increase the number of lines of the switchbar, therefore, freeing up some space. Simply go to ALT+O > Display and choose the number of lines under 'lines:' you'd like the switchbar to be.

You can also set DCC windows to be desktop windows, ALT+O > Display > Options > [Windows...] and check the 'Send/Get' box.

My 2 cents.

Regards,


Mentality/Chris

well, i can sure that i am downloading my own home movies that i gave them to a friend to edit it for me. and now i am downloading all those movies (5 movies each on 1 dvd) while i am trying to chat to others. well, it is annoying to have 10 windows open which coud be reduced to 6 (5 chat + 1 download) windows. that is why i ask it for. but i think i can do a while with your help about the "lines" in the OPTIONS >>> DISPLAY. thanks for your help.
but still i prefer that 1 main download window.......

Such a single-download-window can be created by script if you require it. For instance, DCC windows can be hidden with [color:000099]/window -h "Get Raccoon versions.txt"[/color] of course, replacing the Nickname and Filename respectively. $window(Get *,%i) can be handy.

Well. At least I won lunch.
Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like!

It's already there and it is called a switchbar. As the downloads progress the window buttons double up as progress bars. That said, as Mentality stated, mIRC is more for occasional use as a file sharing agent, not for regular use.
