My homebrew imanga (image, cbz, cbr viewer)!

This is a image viewer that I call it "iManga".
It's still primitive, but at least working.
Be warned, use it at your own risk.

Feature:
*Can read image file inside zip,cbz,rar,cbr.
*Accept jpg,png,bmp image
*Something more not described here. See below.

Install:
*Just unzip the attachment and run from contentlister.

How to use:
*At first, tap on the central of display, a table with 5x3 cells will emerge (Tap again will make it disappear). These cells serve as onscreen input. If you ever used MangaMeeya on PocketPC, you'll know it.
*Illustration of cell's function
0 5 A
1 6 B
2 7 C
3 8 D
4 9 E

7: Show help grid
D: Raise a open file dialogue, users can select image (or cbz, cbr) file to open
3: Quit the app
6: Toggle between zoom-out to fit screen / no re-scale
8: Toggle between fullscreen / windowed (show toolbar & pagebar)
B: Toggle between show whole image / show left half then right half (this function only works for images larger than display)
2: In cbz/cbr mode, show next image (sorting by filename)
With the above function, you can test if iManga working. Other cells not described here are either unimplemented or buggy.
Note: Touch the above toggle when help grid is on screen is not wanted.

Further development plan:
* Debug. iManga works without problem in ScratchBox Environment. But on iLiad, it crashed after 4 or 5 cbz image browsing. I have to make sure what's the cause.
* Incorporate button after iRex release its image viewer source code, or when I can figure out how to make it.
* make pagebar working for cbz/cbr.
* save/load user's preferred configuation.
* to be added.

>>D: Raise a open file dialogue, users can select image (or cbz, cbr) file to open

>>6: Toggle between zoom-out to fit screen / no re-scale
>>8: Toggle between fullscreen / windowed (show toolbar & pagebar)
>>B: Toggle between show whole image / show left half then right half (this function only works for images larger than display)
THEY SEEM TO WORK!

>>2: In cbz/cbr mode, show next image (sorting by filename)

"cbz /cbr mode" means that a cbz/cbr file has been opened, and its first image is shown. Then, by tapping cell 2, iManga will show the next image.

Is the first image in your cbz/cbr shown on screen? If so, tapping cell2 will navigate you to the next image.

Added:
If there is only one image file in cbz/cbr, then there is no next image, of course.

The problem is when i open the cbz file doesnt appear any image (and if i click in the center appear a gray image). So i dont understand if there is something wrong with my cbz or what else.

My cbz file seems just a zip file with images, right?

I am focusing on something else, so that I can't check it for you right now. I just thought of one possibility: the open file dialogue might be buggy to open a cbz file. You can try it another way: modify "run.sh", and replace "sample.jpg" with "your-cbz-file".

It's highly possible that there is something wrong with open file dialogue. Because I might forget to update code dealing cbz file when I modified my unzip routine. I always use run.sh to specify cbz to open, and forgot to test open file dialogue.

From your log, I think the open file dialogue is ok. The problem is : no space allowed in path and filename. Replace every space with some other character (such as '_' ).

I ran the program and then tried to load the sample manga I put on my card. Its a .zip file with 40 different images inside mostly .png and a some .jpg. After I click the open button to open the file it crashes back to Device Manager/Content Lister. No spaces in the path or filename.

Check the output file "msg.out" in imanga dir. If all file are listed, then it's not the problem of filename.
Check if the first image file has 24bit color depth. If so, convert it to 8 bit. The function provided by GTK+ that I called in imanga seems not able to load high color depth image.

Hi. I'm a newcomer here.

I've been using your app for a couple of days. Everything is working fine, but i'd like to know if there's a possibility of a new version with button support.

If you don't have time I could help or do it myself if you release the source.

Thanks for your great work

The manga viewer released here is quite primitive, and is far from usable. Although I have nearly completed it and made it perfectly fit my needs, I probabily won't release the final version for some reason.
There is another zip/rar viewer, you should try it.
