Keep getting "Reload file?" question when editing sql files in HeidiSQL

Regardless of what sql file I edit in HeidiSQL, about two seconds after editing it and saving it, I get the message that the file was modified from outside and a question to reload it.

I already saw this post, but in my case it's not about a network share. All files reside on my local drive.

I'm experiencing the same problem. I save a modified .sql file on my local drive and a few seconds later I get a popup asking whether to reload the file.

I probably can update the underlying logic for file-change-detection, so that the self-caused timestamp is used to ignore that change. Will check if that's possible.

Are you polling the file yourself or registering for notifications with the SHChangeNotifyRegister winapi function?

I'm using Cromis.DirectoryWatch.pas, which has its own implementation. I just see that I did not yet have the latest version of it. Updating it now.

Oh, the newer version has lots of dependencies to other units/files. Probably not the best idea, and it's also already quite old.

Will this help?

Probably, yes. But I need to dive into that code before I can promise something.

Probably the current build fixes this issue.
