It's brand new and i wasn't sure it if worked well enough to enable it by default so it's not surprising that it's not a very well known feature.

Results:
  • All clips with URLs were filtered OK using the rule: (Lower(ClipText) LIKE '%http:%') OR (Lower(ClipText) LIKE '%www.%') OR (Lower(ClipText) LIKE '%ftp:%')
  • All clips with "the" in the text filtered OK using the rule: (Lower(ClipText) LIKE '%the%')
  • Text filtering failed using a rule with an upper case character as the first character in the filter string- e.g., (Lower(ClipText) LIKE '%The%') - so it looks as though the syntax is upper-case-averse.   tellme  (?)

Iain,

This is not actually a "Failure" of the software but actually the behavior of the "Filter-Code" that was specified.

The SQL "Filter-Code" you have specified: (Lower(ClipText) LIKE '%The%') means to:
1) look at a copy of the text of each clip
2) convert the copy of the clip text to lower case with "Lower()"
3) take action based on match (or not) to your text "The" which contains an uppercase letter, and can never match the clip which is being viewed as all lowercase.

The original SQL "Filter-Code" by mouser that you copied from was constructed to be case insensitive. If you want to do a case sensitive compare/match, just take out the "Lower" term like:
((ClipText) LIKE '%The%') ... or perhaps: (ClipText LIKE '%The%')

Add a feature to "explode" a clip based on various delimiters (opposite of merge), so for example:

1) Clip is:
"Apples
Bananas
Oranges
Pears"
...("Apples\nBananas\nOranges\nPears")

or 2) Clip is: "Apples, Bananas, Oranges, Pears"

Then to explode a clip would make 4 new individual clips.

Delimiters could be "automatically guessed", or could be selected from a list of common delimiters, or specified during use.

not a bad idea.  maybe the easiest universal solution would be a function that would let you put in a regular expression, and would extract all matches as new clips.

[box-off]
Just thinking out of the box a little, so perhaps these are a bit of a stretch to request these as features of CHS, but I think these features would be a great addition for debugging/programming.

(Note: When I say Copy, I mean to create as a new CHS clip, and could also consider to copy the text/image to the clipboard.)

Copy URL's of all open Windows and Tabs of the Default-Browser.

Copy URL's of all open Windows and Tabs of the Specified-Browser.

Copy Full-Path of all open Windows of Windows-Explorer.

Copy the Window-Title of all open Visible and non-Visible Windows/Applications.

Copy the Window-Handle of all open Visible and non-Visible Windows/Applications.

Copy the App-Command-Line of all open Visible and non-Visible Windows/Applications.

Copy the App-exe-path-and-filename of all open Visible and non-Visible Windows/Applications.

[/box-off]

If anyone knows of another tool that can already do some of this, please reply.

Those ideas sound useful but definitely sound like they would be better handled by a 3rd party tool.

Nir Sofer's freeware tool SysExporter can do some of what you want:

SysExporter utility allows you to grab the data stored in standard list-views, tree-views, list boxes, combo boxes, text-boxes, and WebBrowser/HTML controls from almost any application running on your system, and export it to text, HTML or XML file.
Here's some examples for data that you can export with SysExporter:

    * The files list inside archive file (.zip, .rar, and so on) as displayed by WinZip or 7-Zip File Manager.
    * The files list inside a folder.
    * The event log of Windows.
    * The list of emails and contacts in Outlook Express.
    * The Registry values displayed in the right pane of the Registry Editor.
    * The data displayed by SysInternals utilities (Registry Monitor, File Monitor, Process Explorer, and others.)
    * The text inside a standard message-box of Windows.
    * The HTML inside any instance of Internet Explorer.

@sosimple: Many thanks for the explanation of the command syntax and rules.
Where could I find these commands and syntax rules documented please? - I mean for the commands and syntax as used in CHS.

More advanced ignore filtering (I don't want CH+S to snag clips from Passpack)

Right... but I don't want to exclude my web browser entirely, I may as well not have a clipboard extender, then. I just want to ignore my browser when Passpack is in the title bar.

I got here when I was searching for a replacement for Ditto (again). I tried CH+S a long time ago (when I first joined DC, I think), but gave up as soon as I realized it didn't support unicode, despite being impressed by its feature set.

So, mouser, could you please consider addressing the issue in the near future, pretty please?

yes i will; now that image support is added, proper unicode and richtext seem to be the next logical steps.
