Let me know if you have any suggestion to enhance the tool.

Thanks for writing this nice little tool. As @jchd pointed out, there are already a lot of external textfinders, but for quick searches yours is very useful. Furthermore, it is also a good example script  for others :).

Suggestions :

  • The width of the GUI and controls is fixed. The TreeView control ($idTreeFile) and the Combo control ($idFolder) could be a bit wider. On the other hand, anyone can easily customize that themselves.
  • A button to reset the display for a new search might be a good addition.

Untouch but adding the new search basic method by restarting script and modifying the $ARRAY_OF_FOLDERS = [@scriptdir, @MyDocumentsDir]

I haven't quite hit 1K scripts 😵, but this is still very helpful!

If you feel like being fancy, you can even have an option to open the file to the specific line in SciTE. (I have some code somewhere, excuse me while I use this to find it! :D)

Edit: Found it

Spoiler

It's pretty difficult, but I couldn't get Run to work with it. I'm not sure why.

Func OpenInSciTe($sAu3File, $sLine = Default)
    
    ; Gets SciTE from an Ini in case it's installed in a non-standard directory
    Local $sSciTE = SciTEDir()
    ; If there is no line to jump to
    If IsKeyword($sLine) Then
        ShellExecute($sSciTE, '"-open:' & $sAu3File & '"')
    Else
        ShellExecute($sSciTE, '"-open:' & $sAu3File & '" -goto:' & $sLine)
    EndIf

    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, False)

EndFunc

Edit 2: I really like your use of GUISetCursor to display that it's working! I might move it before _FileListToArrayRec though :)

There is no need to restart the script for a new search, just enter new folder and new text, and click search, it will erase the previous search...Anyway, I will be adding this button soon, along with other features asked.

I also use it for other languages, and Scite is not always the editor.  I wanted to make it as general as possible.  As for the cursor I will implement it also.  Thanks.

New version available.  I removed the code, hope you don't mind (only kept the download).  I felt it made the post encumbered.  Let me know if you prefer having the code, I will add it again.

I probably found a small bug. If the search term occurs in the first line of the source code, it will not be displayed as a "sub-item". Additional matches (if any) in the lines 2..n will be shown.

1.

; Test by Musashi
MsgBox(0,'Info','Click OK')

==> no "sub-item"

2.

; Info : (or even a blank line)
; Test by Musashi
MsgBox(0,'Info','Click OK')

==> "sub-item" ok

Does FileReadToArray return a 0 or 1 based array? I think that may be the issue. It's undocumented though

Yes ! The problem is easy to solve. It was 'harder' to discover it by accident :lol:.

Func DisplayLine($hGUI, $idTree, $idItem, $sItem, $sText)
  If Not $sText Then Return
  Local $aLine = FileReadToArray($sItem)
  For $i = 0 To UBound($aLine) - 1
