Quick Filter Borked When Entering Very Long Queries
« on: June 12, 2024, 03:29:21 »
If I enter an extensive filename in the Quick Filter on a folder with multiple files, the search does not return one single unique match, instead it lists a large number of inaccurate results. For instance in a folder with PDF's, I entered this into the Quick Filter and it didn't narrow it down to one match. The search query was "Sockets, Shellcode, Porting, & Coding. Reverse Engineering Exploits & Tool Coding For Sec Pro" —however when I deleted most of the Quick Filter title it showed the one match properly, just breaks on long searches. It works for short queries well, but needs to be fixed so long unique filenames are handled\ displayed properly.  :)

its not the lenght.. there is no limit for that.. I guess it is how you write it

If you are looking for a file called "Sockets, Shellcode, Porting, & Coding. Reverse Engineering Exploits & Tool Coding For Sec Pro.pdf"
then put it around " around it. else it will break on spaces.. and each part is a filter..  "Sockets," "Shellcode," If you want to match many keyword use space,
The it will be a OR match.. if you do "Sockets Shellcode" it will find all items matching "Sockets" OR "ShellCode"  it does not require both of them to be there

For that you need to rightclick and the filter icon and selected advanced filtering and create a advanced one.

Or do a regexp match.. if you start the filter with ":" then you are matching using regex
