Grep Results dialog..

Recommended Posts

It would be nice if the Grep Results dialog remembered its last position/size..

It would also be nice to have a Clear Results button on the dialog.

It would also be nice if you posted feature requests and bug reports to SourceForge.

Who'd a thought.... 😉

I thought I would air the ideas to gauge reaction before formalising them but they have been formally posted now.

Isn't the grep results window not a first-class citizen of the IDE (dockable form) so it should be remember by the desktop layout (mine is).

Whilst I am editing a project, yest it remembers.

But, if I close the projects and open a new one for editing when I open Grep it opens in the upper left corner of the screen.

and I have to move and resize it again.

I am using win 11 64 bit, D11.2  and 2 x 4k monitors.

Actually that might be due to the IDE rereading the desktop when you open a new project. Did you save the desktop after you placed the Grep Result window?

 

(It works fine for me in Delphi 2007, XE2 and 10.2. I don't use Delphi 11.)

Hi Thomas,

I just tried that and yes it now is larger and moved, but it opens every time I open a Project, whether I want it or not.
