#8039 closed Patch (fixed)
Ability to edit files from Remote File Search list
|Reported by:||Will Chapman||Owned by:||Bruno Ramos|
|Component version:||Operating system type:||Windows|
|Operating system version:||3.5|
I find the remote file search very useful but also restricting. For example, I often search for error logs and having several subdomains I end up with a long list.
Invariably I want to open a file to see, and often edit its contents but I can't do so without waiting for the search to finish (or stopping the search).
Could I suggest one or more of the following in order of preference:
- To be able to click on a file in the list and read/edit it.
- For the search results form not to be a fixed dialog so that one can perform other functions whilst it is running (for example open and edit a file from the main FZ screens).
- Export a copy of the search results so that they can easily be referred to outside FZ (say in notebook)

[Patch] Add View/Edit from the remote search window
comment:4 by , 9 years ago
First version for of the patch to add the View/Edit option from the remote search window.
This should be fully functional.
Code taken and adapted from the already existing View/Edit functionality.
Tested under Debian GNU/Linux.
Even if with this we will have a bit of duplicated code, I think it would be better to accept a small patch to add the functionality. And later on refactor the code to make sure we will be able to reuse code and not duplicate it in these situations.
