Sorting of columns in the "TRACKERS" tab.

Post by qbittfun2023 »

Hi,
I have a request, is it possible to add a function to sort the columns in the "Trackers" tab?
Sorting together non-working or working trackers, would make it very easy to delete them.

I tried doing this.
It's not easy to implement AT ALL. Like it's really really really complicated and gets messed up real fast.
Why, you ask?

Because of tracker tiers.
You see those two arrows on the right? The ones I never noticed? Yes. Those.
If you implement sortable columns, tier changing functionality breaks.

Obviously some Qt / C++ magician could add this but looks are deceiving.
I tried messing around but no dice; it was beyond my technical skills.
One would have to know the quirks of Qt, learn how it all ties together in Qbittorrent and then come up with a solution that works.

There's a risk that you could remove trackers that are only temporarily down or unreachable, potentially ending-up with no usable trackers. The benefit of removing dead trackers is so small that I don't see the attraction.

I was going to add to this (potential easier than sorting the "Trackers" tab?):

Would it be possibly to add sorting functionality to the "Peers" tab?

Cheers,

Mike.

I mean, you can add it, it just breaks the tier moving functionality. It's a small patch.
