Tooltip on Quick Filter erroneous

FCXE 775 Donor 64-bit

The tooltip string when hovering over the text input field for the Quick Filter is erroneous. It also seems to be hard-coded. Perhaps it could be added to the Language strings file?

What's wrong with the tooltip?
The tooltip is translatable, currently you must restart the program after changing the language.

Hi Marek.

The current tootip in English is:

Code: Select all

Quick filter (Ctrl+Y)
Examples:
.bmp     .bmp;.png     *.txt   doc;txt;a*.htm    pdf\&inv    \~old
Here are my observations/questions:
1. What is the numeric value in the string file for the examples? I'm not seeing it in the language file.
2. Do you think the examples should be listed one per line instead of all on the same horizontal line?
3. The doc;text;a*.htm example should probably be .doc;.txt;a*.htm (more common usage to include the dots)
4. The pdf\&inv example makes no sense to me! :) Is it an error?
5. The \~old example could be simplified. I think the tidle (~) has no special meaning, so I would probably be best to remove it from the example. (If it has a special meaning, just let me know please!) What does adding a backslash do in the Quick Filter field? From a little testing I performed, it never matches anything.

Hope this helps you!

1.
4555=Examples:
The string with examples is not translatable.
3. ".bmp;.png" is example with dot; "doc;txt;a*.htm" is example without dot
4. "\&": and operator
5. "\~": not operator

Thanks Marek.

What do you think of making the string with the examples translatable so it can be easily modified?

Thanks also for the info about the operators. I'll have to give that a try. Powerful!
