DIFileFinder: Version History

DIFileFinder is collection of Delphi components to search the file system for files and or folders matching (or not matching) particular attributes and / or name patterns.

DIFileFinder 6.11.1 – 30 Oct 2019

Delphi compilers with support for the inline directive (starting with Delphi 2005) failed to compile DIFileFinder *.bpl packages for the Demo and Commercial editions. They generated a “[dcc32 Fatal Error] DIUtils: F2051 Unit DIContainers was compiled with a different version of DIUtils.StrSameIW”. Regular *.exe applications compiled without problems. The DIFileFinder Source Code also compiled to both *.bpl packages and *.exe applications with no problems.

DIFileFinder 6.11.0 – 8 Oct 2019

  • Unicode update: The TDIWildFileFinder wildcard matching algorighm now operates on the basis of Ucs4Char instead of WideChar. Use the new [[TDIWildFileFinder.MatchUCP and TDIWildFileFinder.WildUCP properties to set the respective Unicode Code Points. The old TDIWildFileFinder.MaskChar and TDIWildFileFinder.WildChar are deprecated and and have public instead of published visibility.
