Search filter

Recommended Posts

Hey there Aslain,

 

My fav modpack by far, so many options and its super easy to install everything... 

 

One thing if possible would be nice is if you could have a search filter option in the mod selection? Since you have sooooo many awesome mods sometimes it can a little challenge to find a mod you just added into it. It would be very helpful in my opinion.

 

Thanks and good work!

It would be nice to have it, but I have no idea how to implement something like that. There is no "ready" solution.

What's the installer written in?  I'd be curious to do some research :)

Inno Setup Script + Pascal/Delphi

Inno Setup looks like a great tool!  I don't know Pascal or Delphi, but I work in software so I thought I'd hit the forums see what I could find...

 

First, I'm wondering if there is any way when you are creating the installer to customize/add your own functions in Pascal?  In other words does inno setup/delphi give you a finite number of options, or can you get into the weeds a little and add your own code?  If so (and if you're interested of course :) ) here are some links I found that could have some good ideas / examples / useful functions:
 

Pascal Scripting: CreateInputFilePage:

example? http://www.jrsoftware.org/ishelp/index.php?topic=scriptclasses&anchor=TInputFileWizardPage

 

Pascal Scripting: FileSearch
http://www.jrsoftware.org/ishelp/index.php?topic=scriptfunctions

 

Pascal Scripting: GetOpenFileName

http://www.jrsoftware.org/ishelp/index.php?topic=isxfunc_getopenfilename
 

 

Here's another one that I only had time to look at briefly, but looked pretty interesting and mentioned searching/filtering:

 

 
these bullets caught my eye...
Sections are now searchable groups and show the files that contain them.
Structures are now searchable groups and show the files that contain them.
toolbars and db dialogs to Find, Filter, Sort, Export, Print.

I don't know if any of that is useful - if so, great!  If not, no problem.  Thanks for the work you've done already!

Hi Aslain,

i wanted to make a feature request, but found that there is an existing one.

Unfortunately I forgot Delphi a long time ago, otherwise I would definitely suggest my help.

Still, maybe following links can help you.

Thanks.

So it's possible somehow, we just need a delphi programmer. :)
