Re: Quick Open

Nice! I never knew that box had that functionality. X)

I think that covers it, thanks.

Quick Open

(Not sure how feasible this is, given your architecture.) One of the things I love about UltraEdit is the Quick Open feature. Instead of opening a full dialog box, it just prompts you with a box like this: https://i.imgur.com/Gp3Qr7e.png The reason it's great is because you can be opening something ...

Re: command line option to open in existing session

Great to hear.

It's more complex, but you could have the port listener be in a totally different thread, so that it doesn't slow down the main process. It could just message back to the main process when a request comes in on the port.

Re: command line option to open in existing session

I had an idea on this. The first LogMX could open a specific listener port. Subsequent LogMXs would try to listen on that port and fail. When that happens, they would open a connection to that port and send a message that says "open this file(s)". Then the subsequent LogMX would exit. That could be ...

Open Logs dialog should default to putting your focus in the file name box

Another suggestion that's probably already on your backlog: when you go to File>Open Logs (and Open several logs in a merged view), it currently puts your focus wherever it was last time you opened it. I think it would be better to just always put it in the file name box. I know that's the standard ...

show all lines between two lines

It would be really cool if you could select two lines and choose "show all lines between these" and it would pull in every hidden line that was between them (in addition to the lines already visible). However, I'll say I realize how this doesn't fit into ANY of the paradigms that LogMX uses, and may...

Re: ability to save enabled emitter state

I'd be fine if it was just applied when loading a filtering state. I think your suggestion of the filters will just have to do it for having a whitelist. It's not quite as user-friendly for our users, because if you want to just add back in one other emitter, you can't just click them on and off. Bu...

make it easier to reload after parser failure

While developing my java parser, I've found it a bit annoying that if it breaks during instantiation, if you pick the wrong option it makes it impossible to reload the file later. What happens is it pops up the error box about the instantiation error. Then it says it will look for other parsers. The...

Re: ability to save enabled emitter state

Very interesting, Xavier. I had actually tried to save it as a filtering state and it told me nothing was filtered. So I thought that must only apply to ACTUAL filters (that you get by pressing the show filtering bar button). I think the paradigm is just the opposite from what I was expecting. I was...

ability to save enabled emitter state

You can currently save and load filtering states. I wish you could save and load the state of which emitters are turned on. Right now, every time I load these massive application debug logs with lots of different types of stuff, I have to go back and pare down all the noisy emitters I don't care abo...

Re: command line option to open in existing session

And by "session", I just mean currently running instance of the application.

command line option to open in existing session

I'd like a command line option to open a log(s) in an existing session of LogMX. I generally don't want to start a new window every time I open a log. If there are multiple sessions, I guess it could either randomly pick one or pick the one that was most recently active.
