Search Object

This dialog lets you search and open an icon (ico), cursor (cur), animated cursor (ani), image (png, gif, jpg, bmp) or import the icon/cursor from an executable file (exe, dll, ocx etc.) or icon libraries (icl).

The dialog consists of the following controls:
  • Scan folder - clicking this button starts scanning at the current folder. When scanning, this button changes to Stop scanning.

    The program ends the scanning when all files have been checked. For faster scanning you should reduce the search area, scanning each subdirectory separately or specify properties of the object (type, sizes, color depths).

    When you open the dialog, the folder you used last time is automatically opened.

  • Subfolders - if this flag is checked, the subdirectories in the chosen folder will also be scanned

  • Folder history - this shows the directories which recently opened files were opened from or saved to. This can be used to quickly go to a directory that you have used.

  • Source folders - this is where you select the folder you want to scan. It can be either a local or network folder

  • Files - a list of the retrieved files with the information about the number of icons they contain, and their paths.

    When you click on a file, the first object in it is selected automatically.

  • Mask for scanned files - in this field, you can set masks for scanned files (separating them with a comma). Some frequently used sets of masks have been incorporated, which you can select from the drop down menu.

    If you change a mask during the process of scanning, it will only apply if you stop scanning and start again.

  • Type of objects - you can select the type of objects you would like to find from this list. You can choose an icon, cursor, image or all types. For example, if you want to open an icon, select icons and cursors will be ignored, hence improving scan time.

  • Size - you should select object sizes for searching from this drop down list. If You don't know the sizes, or it is non-standard, mark the all formats item

  • Colors - you should select color depths of the required objects from this dropping out list

  • Filenames - if check box enabled under objects, filenames are shown

  • Formats - if check box enabled under objects, format info is shown

  • Images filter - the types of the retrieved objects, their sizes and color depths are indicated in this drop down list. Here, you can specify what objects should be shown.

    This filter operates only for viewing objects but not for editing
