Help...
« on: May 05, 2022, 05:28:26 pm »
In DiffZilla, click on the blue ? by FileWildcards.
Help explains that it takes * ? and #.
"#", really?

I tested that, it doesn't work.
Given these files:
Code: [Select]
diff\d1\A1File.txt
diff\d1\A23File.txt
diff\d1\PlainFile.txt
diff\d2\A1File.txt
diff\d2\A23File.txt
diff\d2\PlainFile.txt
The pattern
Code: [Select]
A#?File.txtfinds no matches, but
Code: [Select]
A?File.txtworks as expected.

In DiffZilla, click on the blue ? by excludes, and get:
Code: [Select]
---------------------------
SlickEdit Pro
---------------------------
Help item 'wildcards::Ant-like exclusions examples' not found
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------


In other apps I've seen the "?" type symbol, but it is a hover only, and not a clickable.
Either works, but inconsistently sucks.

I've been looking into this since your other message.

We've made changes to these help items (and others) for the next release.
