tooltip/hint for full cell contents on flyover?

It would be helpful if you could flyover an abbreviated grid cell in order to get the full data (up to a limit). For example, I have some emitters that are occasionally longer than the cell, but not frequently enough that I want to make the cell bigger. If I've turned off emitters in the details pan...

Re: clear find results

Sorry, that was just an example I pulled off the top of my head. Here's others: Press F3 in Visual Studio code window to Find Next. Press Escape and it will un-highlight your find result. Same behavior in IntelliJ, Delphi, UltraEdit, SQL Studio. All of those are when you don't have the Find box up a...

Re: clear find results

No, not suggesting the option, just doing it.

I mean it's common in places like - if you're using Chrome and probably other browsers - if you hit Ctrl-F right now, type some text to find, then press escape.

clear find results

Maybe I'm missing it, but there doesn't seem to be a way to clear find results from the strip that runs along the right side of the grid near the scrollbar after doing something like Edit->Find. The only way I can find to do it is to bring up find again and type in some non-sense. Perhaps a menu ite...

Re: custom detail panes/visualizers

And I feel like it might be good to have a separate pane for the data rather than replacing the details pane. I'm not sure. Is it possible you'd want to still see the details on these pages anyway? Maybe the details pane could be tabbed? Hmm, that would probably eat some of the vertical screen space...

Re: custom detail panes/visualizers

Right, you got what I meant. When I said the parser would parse the xml/json, I meant parse the text and break out just the xml/json text into a separate column. I didn't mean parse the actual structure beyond that.

Re: custom detail panes/visualizers

What I was thinking was that you'd have a parser parse the xml/json out into a user defined column. And that you could tell LogMX that the column is XML or JSON (or other visualizers that I haven't thought of yet - possibly call stacks?) That'd be easy to do when writing java parsers (some call like...

Re: change grid separator color

I assumed you would still be drawing borders, just in the color of the cell. Or if it selected, in the color of the selection. is that not how the component you are using works? What component is it?

Re: changing previous entry after it is added

In my case, we have a log that is processed by another application, which puts a line at the top of the log with the timestamp for when it processed it. This will therefore be later than the other timestamps and so the log will be out of order (and, in fact, potentially have a timestamp that's way a...

Re: change grid separator color

In a similar vein, I wish the selected row color didn't have to obliterate the regular row color. I know it doesn't do it for the ID column, but it's often hard to see when you have a wide display. I'm wishing it was something more like

errors with timeline and date settings

I've written a java parser that make entry dates look like "2019-03-22 15:56:10". I have private final static SimpleDateFormat DATE_FORMAT = new SimpleDateFormat( @Override public Date getAbsoluteEntryDate(ParsedEntry parsedEntry) throws Exception { // TODO: kludge that will eventually have to be fi...

custom detail panes/visualizers

I like the details pane, but I'm finding I need a bit more. Our logs sometimes have JSON or XML in them. It would be very handy to be able to click on a line and the XML show up a visualizer panel. It would be a pane on the bottom or on the right of the grid, marking up the data in a very pretty-pri...

changing previous entry after it is added

I have a question about what kind of thing is considered allowable when dealing with entries that have already been added. There is a slight annoyance in that our logs in that there is a possibility of lines getting written out of timestamp order in rare cases. For the rare instance, I might want to...

Re: Expand entries that contain newlines to fit

Thanks for the reply. What I figured out is that I might add a user defined column that could have an "X" or "..." in it to indicate that there's data being hidden. It's not as pretty and flashy, but I think it'd get the job done.

Re: option to disable click-to-sort column

Thanks for the reply. And yes, I saw the earlier thread requesting it when you didn't have it. :D Interesting about grouping. Not really something that's applicable to our logs but everyone has slightly different problems to tackle. Typically, I find the tradeoff of click-to-sort to be worth it on t...
