Coloring folders with certain symbols

Post by *bogordo »

Hi,
Just wondering if it's possible to color all folders starting with an underscore ("_folder")?? or two of them ("__folder"), between parentheses...etc?

I tried the comment workaround and it's fine, but this would be nice too, tried some search filters but the search code was looking at all levels, thus, in "_photos" it gives me all folders inside "_photos", and i only want the underscore one...

Best regards,

Something like this for _folder

Code: Select all

[Searches]
_folder_SearchFor=_folder
_folder_SearchIn=
_folder_SearchText=
_folder_SearchFlags=0|002002000020||||||||22221|0000|||

[Colors]
ColorFilter1=>_folder
ColorFilter1Color=33023
Change "1" in "ColorFilter" to match your last filter plus one - then use TC's "Define colors by file type" to move it up in the top of the list

I think I misunderstood you - that you only wanted directories named _folder to be colored, but it seems that you want ANY folder with and underscore in the start to be colored.

To do that then just change this line:

Code: Select all

_folder_SearchFor=_folder
to

Code: Select all

_folder_SearchFor=_*

Ok you are my TC hero, yep this was my goal, was guessing the code with no luck...

This could be a really useful implementation for organizing my folders :)

Working perfect now, thank you very much!!
