FileSearch

16 May 2014, 00:46

FileSearch can search for filenames and file content.
It is possible to search with regex and filter by date and size.
You can choose the language (english, german) in tray menu.

You will need my library : Holles_Lib.ahk

And here is the script:

Code: [Select all] [Expand] [Download] (FileSearch.ahk)GeSHi © Codebox Plus



Last change: Tooltip (by mouse over) in the search results added. Open a file in the search result by double click (same like click on the button "open").

minor edits to comments:

;reduce stringlength, if path is to long for the button -> reduce string length if path is too long for the button
; timer is not active ...also search is complete -> timer is not active... search is complete!

this is great but the search results are not fully visible or readable in the "Found in" box, specially when they have long paths. is there anyway to modify the code so that search results are fully visible regardless of the length of their paths?

Thank you for report.
I think there 2 ways to show full path...
1.) Maximize the window and if that is not enough than scale the font size.
2.) A "mouse over" , that shows the full path in a tooltip.

What do you think? Option 1 oder option 2 ?

thanks for the reply. i think {A "mouse over" that shows the full path in a tooltip} would be the simplest and best option for now. i look forward to the implementation.

Hello Holle,

thanks for the Script.
In German it is better, when You not use: ö, ä, ß, or somthing else...
And i changed "Modifiziert" to "Bearbeitet", that sounds a little bit more familiar for me...

Here are the changes that I have made... You can use it, if you like it... ;) ;-)
