Hi guys,

Lets say I preform a search on a folder, and the result comes up with a bunch of different types of file types.

Is there a way (once the search has been completed and in the feedlist box), to remove all .mp4 files, etc without removing them from a directory?

In other words, remove unwanted folders from the search results, to make it clearer to find what I am looking for.


Thanks,
Jimmy Cool

1. Select all but *.mp4 files - "Mark" -"Select group" - type:
Code:
*.* | *.mp4

2. Choose: "Show" - "Only selected files"

"remove unwanted folders from the search results" is something completly different.

If you use QuickSearch eXtended then after "Feed to listbox" type in
Code:
!.mp4 ........... if you want to exclude only files with extension .mp4
!.mp4 | !.ext ... if you want to exclude more than one extension (example: !.mp4 | !.ion)

Before typing in you could use the shortcut CTRL + S to open the input field of QuickSearch eXtended too (but this is not necessary).
CTRL + SHIFT + S opens the input field and brings your last search parameters, then you can add/adapt your search parameters.

There are three commands you can use
Code:
[________________Mark________________]=0
cm_SelectBoth=3311;Select group: files+folders
cm_SelectFiles=3312;Select group: just files
cm_SelectFolders=3313;Select group: just folders

Once you have feed the searh result to listbox, do a second search where you search for: |*.mp4 to exclude mp4 files from the first search. You can feed the new result to listbox - it will replace the previous feed.
