SonicFileFinder 1.9.1 released

SonicFileFinder 1.9.1 released
March 13, 2008 Jens

SonicFileFinder is a free add-in for Visual Studio 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.

What’s new?

Version 1.9.1 is a bugfix release due to changes in Visual Studio 2008 automation model. Big thanks to Jacobo Amselem for reporting the bug and testing the beta version!

  • FIXED: SonicFileFinder sometimes crashed Visual Studio or simply closed itself without a warning, when using some of the new projects types in Visual Studio 2008. This problem occurred for example using the new database project types in Visual Studio Team System 2008.

Download it on the SonicFileFinder website.

    Mal das Copyright von 2006-2007 auf “2006-2008” erweitern 😉

      Du warst zu schnell beim Download.
      Einen Tag später habe ich die gleiche Version mit angepasstem Copyright online gestellt, aber danke für den Tipp!

    Aus Statistikgründen finde ich es nützlich, dass im SonicFileFinder-Fenster (z.B. rechts von “[x] Use live preview”) jeweils die aktuelle Anzahl an Dateien drin steht.

    Oder z.B. “24 out of 138 files” (also gefiltert und ungefiltert).

    Ggf. auch per Option an-/abschaltbar, sonst stört es noch jemanden.

      …warum habe ich das nicht schon längst eingebaut? 😉
      Besser wäre es aber, wenn Du Feature-Requests an schicken würdest. Dann ist es für mich einfacher die Übersicht zu behalten.


      • Uwe 16 years ago

        OK, mache ich zukünftig. Ich hoffe ich denke immer dran, bin manchmal zerstreut. Ggf. macht ja ein “Suggest feature”-Funktion irgendwo Sinn. Und sei es nur im “About”-Dialog.

        • Uwe 16 years ago

          Mist, jetzt habe ich ja schon wieder hier ein Feature vorgeschlagen. Muss…besser…aufpassen!

    Hi Jens:

    I’ve noticed that the file finder (great tool by the way!) doesn’t iterate/work over Visual Studio 2008 Database Projects… Due to necessity, we’ve been forced to put our 4000 stored procedures into a Database Project for source control purposes, and this would make navigating to the one we’re interested in far less complicated.

    Is this something that could possibly be added for those of us silly enough to actually use those project types?

    Many thanks regardless,

      Hey Hannah,
      if a project doesn’t support the Visual Studio Automation Model there is not much I can do. What works right now are the database projects at “Visual C# -> Database” and “Other Project Types -> Database in the “Add new Project” dialog. Projects located underneath “Database Projects -> Microsoft SQL Server” won’t work am most likely won’t do that in the future. I will do my best, but I can’t promise.
