Find file or use wildcard i.e. dlg*.h, or *.*

 

Introduction

This utility allows finding files in your C Projects folder by filename or the use of wildcards i.e. std*.h or *dlg.c and *.* the filenames, file size and the item number are displayed in a ClistCtrl that, when double clicked, opens the appropriate program (i.e. Notepad, Visual Studio IDE, etc.).

Background

I have been collecting C, C++ source code since 1998 (3.5 GB of files) and when I want a piece of code that I think was in a dialog this makes it easier to find.

Using the Code

The program uses the newer CFolderPickerDialog (MSVS 2010) see DirDialog.cpp and .h to use the older CFolderDialog and it resizes the controls see ResizeDlg.cpp and .h.

To use the CFolderPickerDlg:

void CFindWhatDlg::OnBrowse() 
{
	// TODO: Add your control notification handler code here
    UpdateData(TRUE);
	CString szPath = _T("C:\\");
	CFolderPickerDialog dlg(szPath, 0, NULL, 0); 
	if (dlg.DoModal()) 
	{
		szPath = dlg.m_szFileName ;
		m_edit1 = szPath;
		m_strFile = szPath;
		UpdateData(FALSE);
	}		
}

I never did like the old tree.

Sample Image

To use ResizeDlg add all the controls in OnInitDialog()

	// Buttons
	AddControl(IDOK, CST_REPOS, CST_REPOS, CST_NONE, CST_NONE, 0);
	AddControl(IDCANCEL, CST_REPOS, CST_REPOS, CST_NONE, CST_NONE, 0);
	AddControl(IDC_BROWSE, CST_REPOS, CST_REPOS, CST_NONE, CST_NONE, 0);
	AddControl(IDC_SEARCH, CST_REPOS, CST_REPOS, CST_NONE, CST_NONE, 0);

	// Edit Controls
	AddControl(IDC_EDIT1, CST_RESIZE, CST_RESIZE, CST_NONE, CST_NONE, 1);
	AddControl(IDC_EDIT2, CST_RESIZE, CST_RESIZE, CST_NONE, CST_NONE, 1);

	// Check Box
	AddControl(IDC_NO_CASE, CST_REPOS, CST_REPOS, CST_NONE, CST_NONE, 1);
	AddControl(IDC_LOG_FILE, CST_REPOS, CST_REPOS, CST_NONE, CST_NONE, 1);

	// List Box
	AddControl(IDC_LIST, CST_RESIZE, CST_RESIZE, CST_NONE, CST_RESIZE, 1);

	// Static Control
	AddControl(IDC_STATIC_SEARCH, CST_NONE, CST_NONE, CST_NONE, CST_REPOS, 1);

Points of Interest

I have used a method: SetSortIcon(int nCol) that I got out of a book on Programming Windows. It works fine if all the fields (columns) are left justified, but if one is right justified and you click it first the other fields become right justified and the file names jump over to the right, yuck.

/*** Display or hide sort icon on column to be sorted ************************/
void CCheckingDlg::SetSortIcon(int nCol)
{
	ASSERT(m_list1);
	CHeaderCtrl* pHeaderCtrl = m_list1.GetHeaderCtrl();
	ASSERT(pHeaderCtrl);
	
	HDITEM hdrItem;
	int    nPhysicalCol = nCol;
	int col;
	for (col = pHeaderCtrl->GetItemCount(); col >= 0; col--)
    {
		hdrItem.mask = HDI_FORMAT | HDI_IMAGE;
		pHeaderCtrl->GetItem(nPhysicalCol, &hdrItem);
		if (m_nSortColumn     != 0 &&
			m_nSortColumn - 1 == col)
		{
			hdrItem.iImage = m_nUpArrow;
			hdrItem.fmt    = hdrItem.fmt & HDF_JUSTIFYMASK |
				HDF_IMAGE | HDF_STRING | HDF_BITMAP_ON_RIGHT;
		}
		else if (m_nSortColumn     != 0 &&
			    -m_nSortColumn - 1 == col)
		{
			hdrItem.iImage = m_nDownArrow;
			hdrItem.fmt    = hdrItem.fmt & HDF_JUSTIFYMASK |
				HDF_IMAGE | HDF_STRING | HDF_BITMAP_ON_RIGHT;
		}
		else
			hdrItem.fmt = hdrItem.fmt & HDF_JUSTIFYMASK | HDF_STRING;
		pHeaderCtrl->SetItem(col, &hdrItem);
    }
}

Here is a better version that keeps the justification of each field.

// Display or hide sort icon on column to be sorted
void CFindWhatDlg::SetSortIcon()
{
	ASSERT(m_list);
	CHeaderCtrl* pHeaderCtrl = m_list.GetHeaderCtrl();
	ASSERT(pHeaderCtrl);
	
	HDITEM hdrItem;
	for (int nCol = 0; nCol < pHeaderCtrl->GetItemCount(); nCol++)
    {
		hdrItem.mask = HDI_FORMAT | HDI_IMAGE;
		pHeaderCtrl->GetItem(nCol, &hdrItem);
		if(bAscending)
		{
			hdrItem.iImage = m_nUpArrow;
			hdrItem.fmt    = hdrItem.fmt & HDF_JUSTIFYMASK |
				HDF_IMAGE | HDF_STRING| HDF_BITMAP_ON_RIGHT;
		}
		else
		{
			hdrItem.iImage = m_nDownArrow;
			hdrItem.fmt    = hdrItem.fmt & HDF_JUSTIFYMASK |
				HDF_IMAGE | HDF_STRING| HDF_BITMAP_ON_RIGHT;
		}
		pHeaderCtrl->SetItem(nCol, &hdrItem);
    }
}

The method that handles the search of wildcards:

void CFindWhatDlg::FindToken(CString szSearch, CString szFile, CString szPath)
{
	CString szStr;
	CString szExt;
	int nLen;
	int nPos;
	nPos = szSearch.FindOneOf("*");
	if(nPos == 0)
	{
		szSearch.Delete(0, 1);
		nPos = szSearch.FindOneOf(".");
	}
	szStr = szSearch.Left(nPos);
	nLen = szSearch.GetLength();
	nPos = szSearch.ReverseFind('.');
	szExt = szSearch.Right(nLen - nPos);
	szFile.MakeLower();
	if(szStr.IsEmpty())
	{
		if(szFile.Find(szExt) > 0)
		{
			m_nCount++;
			AddItem(szPath);
			m_szaFiles.Add(szFullPath);
			Sleep(10);	// Wait for List Control
		}
	}
	else
	if((szFile.Find(szStr) >= 0) && (szFile.Find(szExt) > 0))
	{
		m_nCount++;
		AddItem(szPath);
		m_szaFiles.Add(szFullPath);
		Sleep(10);	// Wait for List Control
	}
}
