SonicFileFinder 1.8 released

SonicFileFinder 1.8 released
February 21, 2007 Jens

SonicFileFinder is a free add-in for Visual Studio 2005 that allows a fast and convenient search for any file within every Project of the loaded Solution by entering the complete filename or just a part of it. The found file(s) can either be edited with a single keystroke or a Windows Explorer / CommandLine prompt can be opened at the file’s location.

Finally a bunch of new features found their way into SonicFileFinder after circling around in my head for some time now. I hope you’ll enjoy using this release as much as I enjoyed shaping it.

What’s new?

Version 1.8 is a quite large feature release of SonicFileFinder. Beside a bunch of new features, SonicFileFinder has now full Vista compatibility.

  • ADDED: Context menu on the result list for deleting selected files or showing the Standard File Properties dialog.
  • ADDED: The Windows Standard File Properties dialog can now be shown for a selected file using Alt+Enter or the context menu.
  • ADDED: A CommandLine can now be opened at the file’s location – similar to the Explore feature – by pressing either the new CommandLine button or by pressing Ctrl+Shift+E.
  • ADDED: The search box of SonicFileFinder will now be preset with the current editor selection. (You can disable that feature using the configuration dialog.)
  • ADDED: The columns of the result list can now be sorted in either direction using Ctrl+<column number>.
  • ADDED: Page Up/Down buttons can now be used to navigate the result list.
  • ADDED: When opening a Windows Explorer using the Explore feature, the file to explore is now selected in Windows Explorer.
  • ADDED: The focus now always stays on the search box, even while navigating through the result list.
  • ADDED: A sophisticated logging mechanism has been implemented using SmartInspect from GurockSoftware.
  • ADDED: Better support for multi-monitor setups in Popup mode.
  • ADDED: Search by initials now supports partial matches.
  • ADDED: Selected files in the SonicFileFinder result list can now be deleted using the context menu or the Del-Key. (Of course not without asking your permission šŸ˜‰
  • FIXED: When using search by initials, only the files matching the uppercase letters are shown.
  • FIXED: The match percentage is calculated correctly, when using search by initials.
  • FIXED: SonicFileFinder is now disabled, when using Visual Studio in CommandLine (aka non-interactive) mode. This caused SonicFileFinder to crash while trying to remove the menu, which obviously didn’t work.
