Displaying Entries

When Dup Finder scans folders/files it stores various bits of information in the current database. In principle there are two sets of information that can be extracted from the database and displayed.

  • The names of the path of the scanned folders.
  • The names of the path and the filename of the scanned files.

You can request that such data is displayed in the appropriate Dup Finder panel.

The maximum number of database entries that can be displayed on a page is controlled by a menu, and has the default value of 50.

In its most simple use, to display say the paths of the scanned folders, just click on the Get Paths button.

The left button is for the master part of the database, the right button for the slave part.

Based on the demo disk example, I simply pressed the left Get Paths button.

Note how this line shows how many path entries fit the display criteria, in this case all of them.  --->

If there were more hits than allowed on the display, then you can use:

<<   to first hit

<     move back a page

>     move forward a page

>>   move to the last hit

Based on the demo disk example, I can list all of the file entries in a similar way, simply press the left Get Files button.

I have made the display a bit bigger to show things better.

There is also the option of displaying the path entries and then either clicking on one of the path entries, or selecting a number of path entries and then pressing the <enter> key on the keyboard. The following screen shot is based on selecting multiple path entries.


The entries on the display are presented in order of increasing index (id column) from the respective database table.

If you want the entries to be sorted based on another field, then simply click on the appropriate column header. If the display is already sorted on that column then the display order will be reversed!
