Prevent multiple opening of same file

Code Writer App Suggestions and Support Forum

Posted 11 years ago by Crono Leonhart


I downloaded Code Writer from the Windows App Store, and it looks great to me!

May I suggest an improvement, if I happen to open the same file twice, such file appears twice in the top navigation bar. A nice feature would be to prevent this behavior, opening back the editor where the file was first opened.

Anyway, this is not a complaint, you're doing a really great job. I'm just not good at complimenting :D

Hi Crono,

In Windows 8.0, Microsoft never gave any API to determine if a file opened matched another file.  So we had to add some logic that handled most of the cases but not all (such as if you use external storage file providers).

In Windows 8.1, Microsoft added a way to see if two files reference the same thing.  We will update our code to use that in the next version.
