i got a error in contentgetsupportedfield when try to add a content wdx shelldetails, using tc9.22a and quicksearch extented 2.27
Hey,
sorry I decided not to put too much effort in wdx plugins. I know they are hard to debug and some plugins seem to have problems others not. When I looked at it in the past it was time consuming and confusing.
Sorry I will not look into it. Anyone else can do if he wants. (The source code is there.)
ok, i can live with that.
Samuel, do you think it is logical to allow the negative char input when allow input leading to empty result was unchecked, like other search mode option key like * and ?, it is weird I have to input PDF then move the cursor to the very beginning input the ! to filter anything contain PDF

IMO this Option is one of the most important ones. If one decides to not check it, he has to deal with the described consequences.

I just don't see the reason why I can input ! in the beginning will connect to "allow leading to empty result" or not, it's not a valid filename char anyway, it's more sense to allow users input ! to state that: I am going to have a inverse filter.

QuickSearch eXtended handles "!" as "negate anything that comes next". IMO for consistency this should also negate the empty string.

You got a point, totally right for consistency.
But in a file manager filter negative to empty string is pointless, and I don't think there will be intentional user input of ! empty string IMHO. Please consider to make it a special condition.

2Samuel
The reason why I didnt use it by default is that its a good feature. Because it stops your input if no more files are in list.

<Edit>: 2Christian: Perhaps there could be three states for "allow empty result":

0 - longer search strings can't return more results
8 - longer search strings can return more results (also allow empty result) -> for RegEx
16 - longer search strings can return more results (but disallow empty result) -> for Or


</Edit>
I wonder did Mr Ghisler implement this extra states for allow empty result in the end?
I like when no match, I can't input most of the time, but it's really strange when I need "|" or regex.

I didn't read about it.
