request for a 'real-time' search tool

Post by florent » Mon Oct 09, 2006 2:31 pm

hi pierre, hello everybody,
wouldn't it be nice to have a "real-time' search tool in XnView, I mean something like a simple input box in the toolbar that searches recursively (or not) in the current directory, and shows the found images, as you're typing the text... (firefox brings such a functionnality in the 'search in the page' and i think it's great)
what do you think about this ?
thank you very much for your job

hi Pierre,
that's a very good new...

would it also be possible to add, in a future version, the concept of 'smart folders' (or 'intelligent folders') to memorize dynamic searches in specific directories (perhaps a new tab, like Folders, Favorites or Categories...) ?

if so, XnView will be great to manage real images databases, based on IPTC keywords or data ... it would be very nice to my mind...

thank you very much for your work
