Project Tool -> Folder View
« on: October 26, 2016, 08:44:09 pm »
I have a bunch of projects (mostly C/CPP, with some C# and other code mixed it).

All of these projects are wild-card projects, where I specify to include either *.*, or a short list (*.c;*.cpp;*.h, etc..) and a large exclude list (things like .git\;*.obj;*.exe, etc).

In the projects window, each project has folders Source, Header, Resource, Bitmaps, Other files.

All the files show up under "Other Files", mirroring the actual directory structure.
Properties on "Header files" shows the filter "*.h;*.H;*.hh;*.hpp;*.hxx;*.h++;*.inc;*.sh;*.cpy;*.if", so why does "Header files" always appear empty?

There is an option to Refilter Wildcards (under the context menu when right-clicking in Projects tool window) that is supposed to filter that way, but in checking it just now I think there is an issue with it working incorrectly.  If it is disabled then it is only filtered by the Wildcard entry, in this case *.* gets sorted under the Other files folder, and everything is expanded directly underneath that folder.

I don't think Refilter Wildcards option is working, so I will investigate a fix for that.
