Features and/or Improvements / Regex Syntax Highlighting
« Last post by jporkkahtc on May 09, 2022, 11:10:03 pm »
In FiF, the search / replace text boxes should have syntax highlighting for regex.

All regex special characters should get colored.
There are so many specials it can be hard to remember if you need to escape something or not.

For example, see the online regex toy:
Looks like it uses alternating colors to split things up and also hover over tooltips for explanation.

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

I often find myself wondering what I've put into DefaultExcludes.

It would be great if there was a way to discover this in the places where it is used - without having to go digging thru options to find it.

From BigFind it is relatively easy - right click->Options.
But, from Diffzilla or other places, no so easy.

A hover over tooltip?

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]
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

In other apps I've seen the "?" type symbol, but it is a hover only, and not a clickable.
Either works, but inconsistently sucks.
Hasn't happened since. I don't remember if search was still running but in my original post I used the word "during", so maybe it was. I don't remember anymore.

For anybody following this thread, Source Diff wasn't getting run if launched from the command line (vsdiff) with the filenames specified already.
Was the search still running, done, or was it right as it finished?  Has it happened again since?

Ok, I'll take a look at it.  Thanks for the report.
