Enhanced filtering

Post by Edgar5 » Mon Mar 26, 2018 3:48 am

I have made some modifications to the filtering dialog:

Behind the scenes, it eliminates duplicates from the history. The history can be cleared. It can now discriminate between files and folders (but shortcuts to folders are currently treated as files). I'm playing with automatically adding wildcard(s) automatically with my personal default being Both (*…*) - that's the form i almost always use.

Also behind the scenes, there is a Global filter string which the user may set (or leave empty). If the History list is empty this string populates the combo box.

Next up, give the user control over the maximum length of the history list.

I've added access to a new Option's item which gives the user control over how many items Explorer++ keeps track of for the drop down list:
The attachment filtering2.png is no longer available
It may also be accessed from the Options> General pane:
