Done: HxD: confusion when opening file that's already open

Post by mhurley » 14 Jul 2006 16:55

If you're not paying attention when you open a file and you already have it open, HxD complains that it cannot open the already open file because another process (HxD itself) has the handle.

Perhaps HxD should first check if the file's already open and just make that tab the current one instead of trying to open the file again.

That is not exactly a bug. The reason I didn't change it until now, is that just silently activating the tab you might think that nothing happend.
Perhaps I'll make it flash...
