      Please READ THIS before asking Before posting for help on this forum, please consider checking the Wiki FAQ topics, since most of the usual problems which users usually encounter are already answered in there. However, if you cannot find your answer in there, then read the next lines before you make your post. The following basic information is Essential, in order to be able to help you with any concern/question. Please, be sure to provide all the information said below, each time that you expose a new topic. 1) What version of BitComet are you using? 2) What type of Internet connection do you have (3G , ADSL 3 Mbs, Optical Fiber, etc.)? If you are using WWAN or any type of connection that uses a cellular type of long distance wireless (not including your own personal Wi-Fi network) then be sure to mention this first. 3) Do you have a modem (Make and Model required)? Do you use a router (Make and Model required)? If so, have you forwarded your port? Do you have any VoIP or telephone devices connected? 4) If you have more than one router, be sure to mention the make and model of both devices, how are they connected (i.e. in which connector of both devices is the network cable plugged) and which one of the devices is connected to or is the modem. Also, if you have more than one computer make sure to mention in this case, to which router is every one of them connected. 5) What version of Windows, Firewall and Antivirus do you use? Is your Windows 32 bit or 64 bit? 6) Are you using any type of IP filtering or protection software like Peerblock or ProtoWall? 7) If you are asking about a specific torrent or file that you have downloaded, make sure that you include the complete torrent name, as well as the complete names of the files and their respective extensions/formats (e.g.: .rar, .wma, .bin, .cue, etc.). 8) For speed-related issues, please run various speed tests at a site such as speedtest.net (make sure that no other computer is using your Internet connection and that all other programs - including BitComet - are closed, during the tests). Include the results, along with the settings that you are presently using, in your post, so that we may review and offer suggestions to improve its performance. The lack of said information will result, as direct consequence, in your post being ignored and/or deleted, leaving way to a clean and tidy forum, for those who follow the rules. Please, make sure that the post's title gives an indication of the problem ("Help!" or "I Have a Problem" are not good indicators...). Remember to include the maximum amount of detailed information (speed test results, the settings that you're using, which Tutorial/s you have followed, etc.) possible - the more, the better. Thank you for your cooperation. Regards. The BitComet Team

      Has your post been answered?

      There are many reasons why posts are not answered. 1. Our forum is staffed by professionals who volunteer their time to help the file sharing community. We are not obligated to help anyone, but if you take the time to learn, and follow the rules, you will find us all very willing to help you. 2. If you don't review the rules for submitting support request, then you can expect either no reply, or a reply instructing you to read the rules. Such topics only waste our time, and we help members who read the rules first. 3. We all have our working schedule, as well as other activities that consume our time, and we help out here as much as time allows, so if you did not receive an answer to your topic, make sure you provided the required information, and if necessary, you may send me a PM and I will review the topic. Some forums have a "READ THIS before posting" announcement. This takes 30 seconds to read, so there is no excuse for not providing the information we need to help you. Please also understand, this is not "all" the information we may need, its simply the absolute minimum info needed to even begin to assist you. Sincerely, The BitComet Team

Panels and columns resizing

Recommended Posts

Hello all! 2 things bother me about BC, still using it tough. One of them is that, when I resize the panels in the UI (side panel, detailed info and so on) after restart they go back to their original size and thats very annoying. Even disabled the Auto adjust in the menu. The 2nd thing is that, sometimes, the floating monitor isn't where I left it after a restart. I've contacted the dev team and nothing besides the Auto adjust. Can someone do something about these?

By default, BC does not modify your desired size if exits normally. Pls check your BC version and make sure that your BC is the latest version.

If such situation persists, please let me know. We will do our best to deal with this problem.

But can't this be done when BC closes with Windows and opens at startup? When I started the topic, BC closed with Windows and after it started up, the columns were anything but as I left them.

That sounds as if BC had an abnormal shutdown.

Try setting the columns &c the way you want them, then do a normal orderly shutdown of BC. Start it up again, and all should be as you left it. This should remain until you change either the setttings or the version, even if windows crashes or BC goes through another abnormal shutdown.

Maybe we can understand this from images:

Hope now there you can help me.

I've just confirmed on my own computer that it will remember the width of the columns as long as you shut down bitcomet properly. If the shutdown is forced, the columns will reset to default.

I suspect that you may be using the "X" in the upper right corner to close but the default function of this button won't close bitcomet. Try clicking on "file" and "exit", then wait until the bitcomet.exe process ends in task manager, then restart and the columns should be just how you left them.

Yes. I did it right as step by step 3-4 times as you said:

Clicked on "file" and "exit", then wait until the bitcomet.exe process ends in task manager, then restarted and the columns are NOT just how I left them.

Above 3 cases in (Trackers, Statistics and Peers) still exiest.

I just don't know why it's happaning. I'm using BC since 6+ years.

I'm using Win 8 Ent x64 and 64-bit version of BC 1.37.

I tested it with windows 7 64 bit and bitcomet 137 64bit. All the columns on the lower pane stay where I put them as long as it shuts down fully. The columns in the task pane are different. I don't think they can be saved in a custom width because of all the sorting options involved, such as sorthing by name, upload/download, seeds/peers, date started/finished etc. It's been a while but I think I recall the development team saying they wouldn't be changing that.

I don't have a windows 8 computer to test this on to see if the lower pane behaves differently. Do you have any other computers you can try this on?

Perhaps another member can try this and report if they get the same result?

Yes I witnessed these same cases again, other then my Desktop, just 1/2 hr ago on my friends Laptop.

As you talking about "sorting options involved" then why it isn't happening on other tabs like: File, Log and Peer.

This is confusing, are you saying it works properly on some tabs and not others?

I've read all your posts several times and cannot see where you mentioned that this is only a problem for certain columns. Without accurate info it's impossible to verify bugs. If I had this information before perhaps I could have confirmed a problem and submitted it to development.

Please submit a full report of exactly what columns aren't working properly and I'll review it in about two weeks when I return from vacation. If I can reproduce this I will submit it to development.

This linked topic has been solved. If you're still having issues with the columns, please state clearly exactly which ones are not holding their width and I will try to reproduce the problem.

1st 2 cases are solved by time and only last one is left. It's not a bug but we can call it a feature request instead.

As per above two images the "[+]----- bt_connecting (4)" and "[+]----- bt_disconnect (2)" these are two thing not stays Expended( [-] ) after exiting and starting Bitcomet again.

I want there state to be preserved too, like column widths and heights etc. If I left them Expended they must stay Expended on restart and if I left them collapsed they must stay collapsed on restart of BC.

I hope this explains it much clearly.

And Thanks a lot for such a great product.

There are many more peer lists that could appear such as LTseed connected/connecting/disconnected, emule connected/connecting/disconnected, webseed connected/connecting/disconnected, http/ftp connected/connecting/disconnected, as well as the bittorent peer lists shown in your screenshot, so I think if one list was left expanded, or all of them expanded it would be difficult for uses to see what peers are connected. By default only lists of connected peers are open, the rest are closed so you can see lists of other peer connections using one of the other supported protocols.

Hmmm. You are right this must stay as it is as per your explanation, I wasn't able to see the bigger picture.

Thanks for your reply and time.
