Computer Search? Is it possible?

8 posts in this topic

Hi

I don't know if anyone has seen the "Mac" "Spotlight" search vs the Windows search, but if u have ull notice a big difference.

Spotlight searches as you type, ex. if u type a "A" it will automatically not look at any file without an "A".

The search is much qwuicker because it is done when u finish typing.

The Windows search takes sevral minutes to complete which is annoying.

Is there anyway i could write a program to make a search like "Spotlight".

I am relitivly new to this program, but would like a challenge, and any help would be appreated, (like where to start, or if it is even possible!)

Thanks

You will need to create some sort of index by scanning all files on the computer. This can take some time but searches will be fast. Somebody has already made a good indexing search program in AutoIt. Try searching the forum.

Edit: just noticed this is Scripts & Scraps

I really am sick of this...PLEASE post in the correct forum.

v3 Support is for users to ask for help/support/advice/lecture about any matters relating to AutoIt.

v3 Scripts and Scraps is for users to post completed, let me emphasize, COMPLETED, working scripts that they would like to share with the community.

I don't understand why it is people are compelled to post questions in scripts and scraps

I bet if Jon where to change the title to "Script Showcase" or something then people might figure it out

I'm pretty sure i mentioned before that it's the name that is what confuses people. they think v3 support is for problems with au3 and scripts and scraps is anything relating to scripts.

Not that I would know, I didn't have trouble posting in the correct forum when I was a noob, but its just like me to inspect every aspect of the forum, look at each section, read all the descriptions, THEN post. But most people don't do that so what I said is just a guess.

I PMed Jon about it but he never replied...
