Maybe the "Target Checksum" checkbox could be dropped by verifying if the text field is empty. If it is, no target checksum as been given.

Decent app. Gets the job done. It is missing the one feature that I'm looking for -- base16 encoding of the hash value. Otherwise though, it's great.

This looks like a good way to checksum files. However, I thought of something that might be good for a future version. Could it be an idea to also provide a context-sensitive menu interface within the Finder? For instance, if I wanted to compare the checksum with a file, I could copy the checksum value, and then right-click on the file that I want to check. The context sensitive menu would offer to checksum the file, and because I have a value in the clipboard, the option to compare that value against the file would be available. (As there are different types of checksums, the option would need a sub-menu that specifies the type of checksum being used.) Making this selection would trigger a background process, or a progress bar. Once the process is complete, a dialogue box would appear and specify if the checksum matched or not. The same context sensitive menu could be used to generate a checksum, using the same set of sub-menus. This would be default behaviour when holding down a modifier key while engaging the context sensitive menu. If the clipboard is empty, the full ChecksumJelly application would launch. Although this might not be the direction intended for the application, it seemed a good enough idea to share.

Looks pretty useful - but why does the window vanish from screen when the app loses focus? That's non-standard behaviour - and when checksumming a large file, it would be handy to be able to do other stuff while it calculates :)

I decided to hide the window when not in focus because this is really just a small utility (I thought the user doesn't want it cluttering the desktop when not in use). Is ChecksumJelly preventing you from working with other applications? If it is I will make it spawn a thread and have it share the processor by force. Thank you for your comments, you make two good arguments :) Ruben

Good point, by now I have enough to patch up a first revision. The changes should not take too long once I find a couple of minutes (which are getting harder to find BTW) Thank you, Ruben
