The RegulateCalcFolderSizes script allows the user to enable the CalcFolderSizes option for a specific tab or source. It does this by reading a tab or source variable and settings the CalcFolderSizes option. As the user switches tabs it enables and disables the feature. The provided button sets the variable and refreshes the file display.
It was originally based on steje's Toggle automatic folder size calculation script:
The two scripts differ in the way that the folder calculation is triggered. The other script does not change the CalcFolderSizes option and instead calls the internal GetSizes command.
The provided button sets the variable for the current tab, and refreshes the file display. The button should be placed on the File display toolbar.
The button has an arrow that indicates if CalcFolderSizes is on or not. If the button arrow is green, CalcFolderSizes is on, otherwise it's grey.
