What’s new?

  • Search for any file or directory on your Blackberry® device:
    At any time you can press the [SHIFT+S] or [SHIFT+A] short cut which will open the search popup dialog. Now you can enter the file/directory name you are searching for. You can also use the ‘*’ as wildcard char. Here are some examples:

    • Typing ‘red*’ will find all files or directories that start with ‘red’
    • Typing ‘*red*’ will find all files or directories containing the char sequence ‘red’
    • Typing ‘*.png’ will find all files with the extension .png
    • Typing ‘*.’ will find all directories (not supported on all OS)
    • Also working – but not recommended: Type ‘*’ to get a complete list of all of your files

    After you have pressed the ‘Search’ button the initial ‘Empty’ List will be filled with search result hit’s (if there are any) – Please note, that the Search result will be sorted alphabetically. You will be informed, that the search is completed by the text ‘Search complete’ beside the ‘Search’-Button itself. Now you can mark any search result hit and either open the Menu or:

    • Press [ENTER] to open the file or directory
      Please note, that when you open a file BBFileScout will jump automatically to the parent directory of this file
    • Press [O|P] to open the parent directory in which the file/directory is located (and the specific file/directory will be selected)
    • Press [U|I] to open the file/directory details dialog in order to get additional information like the full file/directory path

    Once you opened a file/directory or the parent directory you can go back to your search result by pressing [SHIFT+S] or [SHIFT+A] again – this will show the Search popup Dialog (in the same state as you have let it) again.

  • File details [added property]:
    • Path in which the file is located
  • Directory details [added property]:
    • Path in which the directory is located
  • Key short cuts [‘Search Files/Directories’ popup]:
    [ENTER]: Start the search | Open the current selected file or directory
    [O|P]: Open (P)arent Directory
    [U|I]: (I)nformation about selected file or directory [file details]
    [ESC]: Cancel – close the popup dialogue

Core Features
