[feature request] how to get the search box value ?
« on: April 03, 2009, 05:16:57 AM »
Hi mouser,

i don't think there is a way to get the search box value in an alias, but i think that would be very handy

i have several aliases with regex mask and for some i'd like to be able to get the what's in the search box
so i new variable would be great : %current_searchbox_value%

Too many cats on the shelf?  I know the family is in town from another thread - that must be it!
