Entrian Source Search 1.7.21: Various features and fixes

Friday, April 2nd, 2021 by Richie Hindle

I’m very pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.7.21, which includes these fixes and features:

  • Alt+Delete in the Search box now deletes any filters and leaves the plain query. Thanks, Eddie.
  • Syntax colouring for search results in SQL files. Thanks, Darker.
  • You can now add directory names, filenames, and file extensions to the exclusion lists from the search results context menu. Thanks, Jason.
  • In the Manage Indexes dialog, you can now filter the index list by root directory.
  • When the autocomplete list is visible and has a selected item, the Tab key completes that item but doesn’t trigger a search. Thanks, Nicholas.
  • An unexpected exception when showing the Source Search crash dialog can no longer take down Visual Studio. Thanks, Eddie.
  • Fix for CompletionStatusChanged crash when processing file system watcher events.
  • Fix for rare timing-related ArgumentOutOfRangeException crash.

You can download this new release from the download page or from the Visual Studio Marketplace.

Entrian Source Search 1.7.20: Better compatibility with mixed-DPI environments

Saturday, April 11th, 2020 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.7.20, with these fixes and features:

  • Lots of problems fixed with multi-screen mixed-DPI environments, which for some reason seem to have become very popular in recent weeks… Thanks to lots of people who have sent bug reports for this.
  • If you run out of disk space during indexing, you’re now prompted to retry, so you can clear some space and carry on.
  • When you lock a tab, the Search box now gets a grey background to make it visibly obvious that it’s locked. Thanks, Jools.
  • Various obscure crash bugs fixed.

You can download this new release from the download page or from the Visual Studio Marketplace.

Entrian Inline Watch 1.0.13: Suppress display for a type.

Wednesday, January 1st, 2020 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Inline Watch 1.0.13, which adds one new feature:

  • You can specify an empty format definition in the Object Formats list to suppress the display of values for a given type. Thanks, David.

and fixes two bugs:

  • When pinning a popup window under a High Contrast theme, the pin icon is now clearly visible. Thanks, Martin.
  • Where the name of a type contains a space, eg. a C structure like struct _IO_FILE, you can now define an Object Format for it. Thanks, David.

You can download this release from here or get it from the Visual Studio Marketplace.

Entrian Inline Watch 1.0.12: Double-click to add a Watch entry.

Sunday, August 11th, 2019 by Richie Hindle

I’m very happy to announce Entrian Inline Watch 1.0.12, which adds one new feature:

  • You can now double-click a value bubble to add an entry for that expression to the Watch window. Thanks, Paul.

Download it from here or get from the Visual Studio Marketplace.

Entrian Source Search 1.7.19: Various bugfixes

Sunday, August 11th, 2019 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Source Search 1.7.19, which fixes four bugs:

  • Keystrokes in the Search box now always go to the Search box, rather than sometimes going to the current source file. Thanks, Hao, Daniel, and Avraham.
  • Opening a Markdown file from the Source Search search results now works when you have Mads Kristensen’s Markdown Editor extension installed. Thanks, Kuo.
  • Pressing Escape now reliably returns focus from the Source Search query box to the active document; previously you sometimes had to press Escape twice. Thanks, Mark.
  • After you open a solution and Source Search restores its tabs, if you run a search and then open a new tab, your search is now properly stored in the history. Thanks, Jools.

You can download this new release from the download page or from the Visual Studio Marketplace.

Entrian Inline Watch 1.0.11: Support for Visual Studio 2019 version 16.1.

Monday, May 27th, 2019 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Inline Watch 1.0.11, which now supports Visual Studio 2019 version 16.1.  The previous release was erroneously marked as only working with 16.0 rather than all 16.x versions.  Thanks, Cahit and target2.

Download from here or get from the Marketplace.

 

Entrian Source Search 1.7.18: Now works with .NET Framework 4.8 in Visual Studio 2019

Monday, May 27th, 2019 by Richie Hindle

I’m relieved to announce Entrian Source Search 1.7.18, which, when running under .NET Framework 4.8 within Visual Studio 2019, no longer appears as either a blank rectangle or an entertainingly transparent rectangle, through which you can see your desktop.  Thanks, Mark, Martin, and Morten.

Available for download from here or in the Visual Studio Marketplace.

Please note that the Source Search tool window won’t appear where you last left it, the first time you see it after the upgrade.  It’s effectively a new window as far as Visual Studio is concerned, so it will appear in a default place and you’ll need to dock it again.

Full support for Visual Studio 2019

Monday, April 1st, 2019 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce new versions of Entrian Source Search, Entrian Attach, and Entrian Inline Watch, all of which now fully support Visual Studio 2019.

Full support for Visual Studio 2019 means that all three extensions use background loading, so they won’t necessarily load as soon as Visual Studio loads, or as soon as your solution loads.  They will load as soon as you trigger one of their commands, but otherwise there can be a few seconds’ delay, before Source Search starts indexing, or before Attach will attach to newly started processes.  Neither you nor I get any control over this, I’m afraid.

As well as support for Visual Studio 2019, these releases include the following fixes and features:

Entrian Source Search:

  • You can no longer close a locked tab; you need to unlock it first.  Thanks, Mary.
  • Closing a tab that was restored from a previous session now closes the correct tab rather than some other one.  Thanks, Marius.
  • Fixed a crash when you start a search, right-click in the results before they update, then click a menu command after they update.  Thanks, Jools.
  • Fixed a bogus occasional ‘Error saving settings; Retry?’ message.  Thanks Brett.

Entrian Attach:

  • No longer fails to work if you have a file called ‘C:\Program’ on your C drive.  Don’t do that, by the way.
  • Installation now works properly if you have an instance of Visual Studio that only includes the build tools, as well as a full instance.  Thanks, Vlad.

Support for Visual Studio 2019

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce new versions of Entrian Source Search, Entrian Attach, and Entrian Inline Watch, all of which work with Visual Studio 2019 Preview.

These versions are not yet optimised for Visual Studio 2019, so they may cause deprecation warnings.  There’ll be new versions available before the final release of VS 2019 that will fix those warnings.
