            How can I rename all specified file extensions within a folder while preserving the file timestamps?
            Asked 2022-Feb-23 at 17:32

            I'm trying to rename the file extensions of a collection .txt files while also preserving the timestamps. I first attempted to use Robocopy, but this tool can only copy files from one directory to another while preserving file timestamps (file extensions cannot be changed as far as I can tell). I used PowerRename, which makes file extension renaming easy, but it also modifies the timestamps of the renamed files.

            Finally I used the Windows MOVE command to achieve this (as shown below):

            Use Get-ChildItem to discover the target files, then move one by one:

            Right way to create a custom control library in winui
            Asked 2021-Oct-25 at 19:56

            i want to create a custom control library with winui 3/uwp.

            The question is How should I introduce dictionaries and styles?

            Why did PowerToys put some dictionaries in the generic file? And put some other dictionaries in the app.xaml file?

            I also noticed that one of the dictionaries (IsEnabledTextBlock) was placed in both the generic file and the app.xaml file. why?

            If we want to create a custom control library, how should we introduce these dictionaries and styles?



            Answered 2021-Oct-25 at 19:56

            If you are developing a library that contains custom controls, the default styles of these controls should be defined in a resource dictionary called themes/generic.xaml. This is where the framework will look for them by convention.

            A class library has no concept of an app global App.xaml file since it's not an app.

            How to override PySide2 widget's method generated by Qt Designer?
            Asked 2021-Jul-02 at 11:08

            I'm trying to learn PySide2 by creating a mimic executable like powerrename tool in powertoys.

            After successfully loading the Ui_PowerRenameDialog, which is generated from a .ui file created by Qt Designer.

            I encountered an error trying to accomplish a functionality which can let users drag and drop files from Windows Explorer to the QTreeWidget embedded in the .ui file.

            Here is my full code:



            Answered 2021-Jul-02 at 11:08

            The error comes from the fact that dragEnterEvent and dropEvent are not bound to a class (because they are nested into another function), that means that self is not automatic, this is why when it is called it expects two parameters, self and evt, but the Qt framework only passes evt.

            To modify the behevior of Ui_PowerRenameDialog you should create a subclass of Ui_PowerRenameDialog and implement the two event methods in that subclass
