Re: Capitalize first character in file names, w/ regexp repl

Anyway, I just added a switch /u to just uppercase the first letter. This functionality was missing an easy way AFAIK. SWEET!!! :appl: :biggrin: :shock: :ugeek: :lol: These are all the related switches in TextPad (and the Boost regex engine, which it uses): \l - Causes the next character from the f...

Re: Capitalize first character in file names, w/ regexp repl

I'm trying to rename files like "twoThings.java" to "TwoThings.java", so passing the entire string won't work. I only want to upper (only want to *change*) the first character.

Maybe if I parse the string and then pass the first character to recase.

I'll give that a try.

Capitalize first character in file names, w/ regexp replace?

Code: Select all

^([a-z]) > $1
This does nothing; it changes the first character to itself.

With regexes in TextPad, I can capitalize the next character with:

Code: Select all

^([a-z]) > \u$1
Is there any way to do this with XY's RegExp Rename? My goal is to capitalize the first character in each selected filename.

Re: File from hell will not delete...

Seems like Windows has one of its inexplicable file locks. Perhaps logging out or restarting your computer will help?

Re: Scripting cmd for "purpose" locking w/ tab & bkgd colors

Haven't had the time to try your icon suggestions. I did notice something important related to this suggestion (but unrelated to icons): When the pane is not focused, the tab's background reverts to white. The background "boxing" color is ignored...which sort of defeats the whole purpose of what I'm...

Re: Scripting cmd for "purpose" locking w/ tab & bkgd colors

If the tab-proper can be added to the boxing feature, I'm totally good. Tab coloring is almost all of what I need. :appl:

Good to know about the SC. Should have looked...although not sure if I would have seen it :)

Thanks again for showing me the box feature.

Re: Scripting cmd for "purpose" locking w/ tab & bkgd colors

Wow. How could I miss such a huge feature like that? I obviously want the tab-proper colored so I can see what's going on when it's behind another tab, but it's certainly a big step in the right direction. Very cool feature. Thank you for pointing me to it. My instinct says the idea of tab/backgroun...

Get the script for creating entire current toolbar

Is there a way to get the script to create the currently-displayed toolbar? You can get the script for a custom toolbar button by right clicking on the clear button. Is there an equivalent for getting the script for the entire toolbar? Because that would pretty super sweet. http://i.imgur.com/3bLfOF...

CTB to open catalog+pane tabsets

Each item in this custom toolbar button saves the current tabsets, then opens a catalog along with the tabsets from the *last* time that catalog was opened. If the tabsets don't exist, they're created. http://i.imgur.com/kMRZ2i7.jpg Right-clicking does nothing. Someday I'll move these to script file...

Re: Scripting cmd for "purpose" locking w/ tab & bkgd colors

Not sure what boxing is. This is something in XY?

It's important to me that the tab-proper is colored. The tab-proper being red is like the "initial warning". The background being red is the "critical did you NOT see the red tab? warning".

This is cool.

Re: Scripting cmd for "purpose" locking w/ tab & bkgd colors

Actually Sammy, you're reminding me of another example: I develop my Java libraries in a "me-only" sandbox (directory), and it's ALLLL duplicated to a "public" sandobox, and then *that* is built to the "build" directory. (And then the build directory is duplicated to my website local-copy...which is...
