Enhanced Search Dialog

Post by Edgar5 » Sun Jan 14, 2018 5:32 am

I really like the functional concept of a Search Dialog as Explorer++ uses versus the in-dialog search that Windows Explorers uses. Explorer++ has some shortcomings so I have been working on enhancing its Search Dialog. Here's a picture of what I've got working so far:

Others have requested that the Search Dialog's listview allow one to edit the names of the found files/folders; I second that request and have a solution which works for me by adding to the context menu "Rename…". It looks like this:

I would also like to be able to add additional columns and sort by column - in short, make this listview's display virtually identical to the standard Tab's listview.

As always, I'm happy to share the code and if someone were willing to help me set up my GitHub and put the new code up it would then be available to everyone.
