ChooseFileFolder ..

Recommended Posts

Hiya melba,

I'm posting this here since you have a pending issue on your ChooseFileFolder thread ..
Its interesting to me to see how you would you go about re-expanding the tree according to a filter and how it will actually perform (speed related), showing the tree accordingly to filtered results when running with example_1.au3
I'm including here a ChooseFileFolder_FilterOnChecked.au3  to illustrate better the goal idea in case you are interested to give it a whirl on spare time, no rush :)

Thanks

Deye,

So you have just added an input and a checkbox to the dialog and expect me to code the rest, without any clear idea of what it is you want this "filter" to do?

I am not a mind-reader so how about you give me some more details of just what this "filter" is supposed to add over the existing $sMask parameter - which already allows you to define pretty closely what is displayed when the tree is expanded.

Melba,

I didn't yet try anything my self but you would know of better ways on how to manage this as you know all the shortcuts in the UDF .. 
I only began thinking about the idea .. towards what you did here

i.e:  we typed into the filter "New?Text?Document.*" ,  then upon checking the checkbook The tree re-expands but will show only the folders that contain found sub items, just like what $bDeepest represents in the UDF and like when using the $sMask except hiding other root\parent folders that don't contain the found sub items

Hope I'm clear ..

Thanks

I see 2 big problems with that idea:

  1. The UDF does not know in advance what is in the folders (which is why it is so much fast than it was), so.....
  2. Only displaying the "filtered" items would require a major rewrite of the UDF to first expand the tree without displaying anything, filtering the resulting branch, and then displaying only those items which matched the filter

I am not prepared to undertake such a task for what I see as a something of very limited use, sorry.

Melba,

Well all I thought it will need to do is a _FileListToArrayRec (without changing any the display parameters) 
And accordingly to $bDeepest build a new treeview ..
to bad there is not already a good _ArrayToTreeView example .. Would have been a lot easier to test out .. something

Thanks for hearing me out ..
