Proprietary icofinder for your icon collection

Almost every web designer and developer owns an icon collection. As time goes on, the collection will become bigger and bigger and finding an icon in the collection will be a challenge. Fortunately, icon search is not a problem of IconLibraryX users.

IconLibraryX implemented a full-featured icon finder to help users to search icons easily. You may open the Find Icons dialog by clicking the main menu's Edit>Find Icons menu item or right-clicking one of the icon categories and choosing the Find Icons command.

On the Find Icons dialog, there are several fields and options need to be considered for high-efficiency icon searchs.

1. The Find what text area.
You need to input the icon name or keyword you want to search for here.

2. The Scope combo box.
Generally, you search icons just in the whole icon database. But, sometimes, you need to find icons in a specified category. There are three scope types you can choose within: All categories, Only selected category, Selected and descendant categories. The All categories item is the default option.

3. The search Options group box.
Case sensitive: If the find text is case-sensitive.
Whole word only: Check this option if you want to search icons with exact name or keyword. If this option is not checked, when you search for, for example, "add", some irrelevant icons such as "edit-padding-left.ico" will be displayed in the find results, too.
Regular expression: Check this option to enable regular-expression searchs. This is a powerful option for advanced users. With the regular expression, you can find anything in your icon database at peak efficiency.

Here is a brief manual of the regular expression feature.

Regular expression is a search string that contains normal text plus special characters which indicate extended searching options. Regular expression allows more sophisticated search.

For example, you can find any digit by using regular expression "[0-9]". Similarly you can find any matching character that is NOT digit by using regular expression "[^0-9]".

IconLibraryX supports following regular expressions in the Find Icons function.

Expression	Description

.		Matches any character.

|		Either expression on its left and right side matches the target string.
		For example, "a|b" matches "a" and "b".

[]		Any of the enclosed characters may match the target character.
		For example, "[ab]" matches "a" and "b". "[0-9]" matches any digit.

[^]		None of the enclosed characters may match the target character.
		For example, "[^ab]" matches all character EXCEPT "a" and "b".
		"[^0-9]" matches any non-digit character.

*		Character to the left of asterisk in the expression should match 0 or
		more times. For example "be*" matches "b", "be" and "bee".

+		Character to the left of plus sign in the expression should match 1 or
		more times. For example "be+" matches "be" and "bee" but not "b".

?		Character to the left of question mark in the expression should match
		0 or 1 time. For example "be?" matches "b" and "be" but not "bee".

^		Expression to the right of ^ matches only when it is at the beginning of
		line. For example "^A" matches an "A" that is only at the beginning of line.

$		Expression to the left of $ matches only when it is at the end of line.
		For example "e$" matches an "e" that is only at the end of line.

\		Escape character. If you want to use character "\" itself, you should use "\\".
