QTTabBar surprised us with the update recently, after almost three years of silence. (The changelog also points to an importance of having a full copy of your code somewhere outside of your PC. Version control systems to the rescue.)
To celebrate this fact, I decided to publish a little custom feature I’m using with QTTabBar — a script and UI buttons to navigate between folders within one common parent folder.
There are cases when you need to visit a set of folders, and goind up and down in the folder structure getting tedious. That’s where magic “Next folder”, “Previous folder” buttons come in handy.
Navigation pane, a.k.a. tree view can, in principle, be used for that, but it isn’t always convenient to use. I can only use it for top level navigation, unless Microsoft will come up with some way to reduce clutter in the tree - not showing subfolders that aren’t ascentants or descendants of current folder for example.
My QTTabBar panel looks like this:
Two triangles looking in opposite directions are the buttons this post is dedicated to.
Below is the code and description for the buttons.
