Now you can instantly add a "Find In Files" feature to your application! With FindInFilesX it's as easy as dropping an ActiveX component onto your form.
FindInFilesX is an ActiveX component designed to assist developers to quickly add a text search utility to their end products. This can be very useful in document or knowledge management applications. The parsing of files for text is encountered often in all areas of software programming. A key feature of this OCX is that it runs on a separate thread allowing the end users application to continue functioning in a responsive manner.
FindInFilesX encapsulates all the details required for quick integration. For example, all search parameters are persistent across multiple runs of the end users application. A built in dialog box to facilitate setting the FindInFilesX properties is also available:
Furthermore, the history list for the text to search for, the extensions and directories to look in are also managed automatically.
Download and try the "FindInFilesX Demo Program"... AND... the FindInFilesX ActiveX component! The full VB source is included.
Source code for this component is available for purchase.
