Capital letters searching with search dialog

Post by *tridy »

Hi.
I was wondering if in search dialog it is possible today to search with capital letters for the file name.

for example, I need to find the file ContactAttributeImportModel.cs, so I would write CAIM:

this sort of thing is possible in tools like Visual Studio when searching.

Otherwise, it would be a nice feature to have.

Thanks.

Yes, this is possible with regular expressions. Just use the prefix (?-i) before the search string, e.g.
(?-i)[A-Z]

This finds any file with at least one uppercase character from A to Z (doesn't include any accents).

Christian,
I think the question was if there is an option to type the letters "CAIM" and the quick search would find the file "ContactAttributeImportModel.cs".

tridy,
You can do something similar using QuickSearch eXtended, when you use the * modifier: e.g. "*dwn" finds "download".

He wrote "search dialog", so I assumed that it was abouut regular search.

Does QuickSearch eXtended support case sensitive searches?

Sorry, I meant the small Ctrl+S "search dialog".
