I have a bunch of numbered animations, and each animation consists of 4 files (an AVI, WAV, FLA, and SWF).
It would be nice to group by their common animation name, so that for each animation, I could see at a glance whether it has all 4 necessary files.
Is there a way to group files by name without extension in Windows 7 Explorer?
I found a way to do it in Xplorer2 with the deprecated (as of Vista) IColumnProvider interface, which was beautifully simple and has since been replaced with some monstrosity of a property system in Windows Vista and 7.
Below is a screen capture of Xplorer2 using my IColumnProvider implementation, which Explorer quit supporting in Vista. So much for being an upgrade. Xplorer2 is ugly, cluttered, and doesn't sort names mixed with number by numeric value like Explorer does.
