Add 'Find in All Docs' to the context menu

Recommended Posts

I have code in the au3.properties file to use Findstr to find words in the current file and it works as I want it to. However, now I want to find words in all opened files, but I cannot figure how to get the list of buffers/openfiles onto the Findstr command line.

Here is the code I'm using:


# Find All in Current Document
command.name.43=Find All in Current Document
command.43.=$(findcmd) /N /I /C:"$(CurrentWord)" "$(FilePath)" nul
#                            2 = Don't save before running this command

# Find All in all open Documents
command.name.44=Find All in All Open Document
command.44.=$(findcmd) /N /I /C:"$(CurrentWord)" $(FilePath) nul

# Add my commands to the user context menu
40 - Find Definition | 1140 |
41 - Find References | 1141 |
42 - Function List   | 1142 |
43 - Find All in Current Doc | 1143 |
44 - Find All in All Open Docs | 1144 |

If you know the Lua command to have Scite save it's current session, you can then read in that session file which will contain all the currently open files and their paths. I'm not all that familiar with Lua so I can't be of much help there.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I'm almost there.

I couldn't find a way to do it with LUA.

However, using an external AutoIT script, I locate the AutoIT SciTe window and parse the window properties for the filenames, then search each file for the pattern. It's pretty convoluted right now, but it seems to work.

I have one issue I need to solve before I can clean up my code and tell the world about it:

My script uses ConsoleWrite() statements to display each matching line in this syntax:

<filename>:<linenum> <matching line>

like this:

D:tempfile.txt:2 Text line with a matching pattern

D:tempfile2.txt:2 Another text line with a matching pattern

Now my problem is:

How do I make it so when I double click on the line in the Console output window, the editor goes to that line (like when you do a compile and double click on resulting error lines)?

I do all this by entering this info in the au3.properties file:

command.name.44=Find Selected text in All Open Documents

command.44.=D:UtilMiscAutoITTabNames.exe "$(CurrentWord)"



When I run it, I see all of the matching lines in all of the open files in the console output window, but when I double click on the results, nothing happens.

OK, I solved that one. I was not formatting the message correctly.

Now I can do what I wanted to do. I wrote a UDF that extracts the names of all of the open files in the editor. I built a script around it that searches each file for a specified word.

I implemented my "Find in all files" by entering this info in the au3.properties file:

# Find Selected Text in the Current Document
command.43.=$(findcmd) /N /I /C:"$(CurrentWord)" "$(FilePath)" nul

# Find Selected Text in all Open Documents
command.44.=D:\Util\Misc\AutoITFileNames.exe -find "$(CurrentWord)"

43 - Find Selected Text in the Current Doc | 1143 |\
44 - Find Selected Text in All Opened Docs | 1144 |\

Back in the Autoit editor, I right click of a word I want to find, and select "Find Selected Text in All Opened Docs".

Here is my UDF to extract all open filenames from the running AutoIT editor. Pretty crude, but it works

; #FUNCTION# ====================================================================================================================
; Name ..........: _GetAutoITFilenames
; Description ...: Get an array of the names of all files being edited by the AutoIT editor.
; Syntax ........: _GetAutoITFilenames()
; Parameters ....: None
; Return values .: Success: An array of full pathnames
;                          (element [0] = The #of filenames in the array)
;                          @error = 0
;                 Failure: 0
;                          @error = 1 - The editor is not running
;                          @error = 2 - The editor is not editing any files

; Author ........: Andy Scharmer
; Modified ......:
; Remarks .......: The Filenames are obtained from the AutoIT (SciTE) editor by
;                 obtaining the handle to its main window, and the handle to the
;                 Tab control (if it's editing more than 1 file).
;                 For a non-tabbed window, the full pathname is in the window's title,
;                 which is extracted into the output array.
;                 For a tabbed window, focus is set to each tab (which puts the full
;                 path name in the window's title) and the full pathname is extracted
;                 into the output array before settitn focus on the next tab.
;                 Focus is then restored to the originally focused tab.
