I noticed some of the recurring themes on implementation of requests are limited by the ListView control.  I am not much of a programmer, and even less wrt AHK, but perhaps a solution to many of these requests would be a second "read-only" mode that uses a different control for display?  I realize that takes away a lot of the simplicity of "open, enter, close" flat-file databases, but for some users, the tradeoff may be worth it (for a mulitline view, for example).  It may solve some of your other issues regarding the ListView limitations.

Just a thought....

Thanks for the feedback, steeladept, I appreciate it.  Yes, I'm limited in certain ways because of the listview control but I really don't mind since Snap DB serves a niche role in regards to databases.  If a user needs more than what Snap DB offers, I feel there are many solutions already out there (I use some of them).  You know?

Very handy! (I just happened to have a UTF-8 tab separated file lying around on my desk, so I thought I'd share.)

It will attempt to "run" the contents of a cell.  So, say you had folder path, it would launch that folder path.  Or, the path to an exe, image file, etc.  You can also put, say, email addresses in a cell and it will launch those, too.  Kind of like a poor man's address book.  Make sense?

Right on.  Basically, anything you can stuff into the Windows "Run" box should work in a Snap DB cell.  BTW, nice screenshot.  Thanks for sharing.  =]

I was going to ask if there were any plans to allow exporting while in filter mode, but I just noticed Print kind of does that.

Hmmm...I'm not sure why I don't allow that.  Let me see what I can do.

@daddydave: From what I can tell, Export to CSV is available in Filter mode.  Is this what you meant?

Website | Download
v1.3.5 - 2011-12-30
    + Added a new "Web search this cell" option to the context menu.  The
      default is to use Google but you can configure any search engine in the
      Options dialog.
    * Changed the filter mode so a subset of the Edit menu is available.

Downloaded the version and I don't see any change in behavior I was referring to.
I am referring to File > Export rows to CSV file. The whole File menu disappears when I click on the checkbox for Filter/Read-Only mode.

To clarify further, it would be nice to be able to export a subset of records based on the filtered rows that are displayed.

I like the Web Search. I set it to search pronunciations from Forvo: http://www.forvo.com/search-hi/$$1 It works great from the right click menu, but nothing happens when I press Ctrl-W (which I think is generally used for "close window", but I don't know if that matters.

UPDATE:
Well "Copy Selected Rows" wasn't there before in Filter mode, right? I think I'd rather use that than export to CSV anyway, and I get tab separators. Excellent. That's probably all I need.

Sorry, I was focused on the toolbar button which was still available.  I've added back a subset of the File menu, while in filter mode, in this next build.

Uh...yeah...about that.   embarassed  See the latest build.    cheesy  Let me know if that works how you like.

v1.3.6 - 2011-12-30
    * Changed the filter mode so a subset of the File menu is available.
    ! If you're going to hotkey an action, it helps to actually add the code for
      said hotkey.  Ctrl+W now works for the new web search functionality added
      in the previous version.  (Thanks, daddydave)

Hi skwire!

I'm getting quite a lot of use out of this little program -- it's a simpler replacement to Iliumsoft's Listpro. Listpro isn't portable, and doesn't look as if it's ever going to be, so onwards and upwards.

Is it possible that you might add the ability for multiple filters in the future?

For example, right now I can choose column 1 > contains > something. With that filter active, I'd love to be able to filter that data with column 3 > contains > something else.

Does that make sense?

Up to three filters would be lovely, more if it's configurable.

Cheers.  smiley
