JTraffic Screensaver


The Find menu item provides functions for searching and for renaming picture resources.

Universal characteristics for all search functions:

  • The search term is entered into a dialogue box.
  • Pattern matching by wildcards is available: * means a sequence of characters,   ?  means one single character.
  • The full name of the picture must match the search term. This means that the search term M_B, for example, will only bring up the picture M_B, but not any other variants of it such as M_B1, M_BAX, etc. If one wants to find all of these other similar items, one should search with the term M_B*.
  • The find function jumps from the currently selected picture to the first picture, which matches the search criteria.  If there is only one vehicle that meets the search criteria, the next search will return back to this same picture in any subsequent searches for the same name.  If there are no matching pictures, the currently highlighted picture will remain highlighted and the program will respond with a beep.

For further searches:

  • F3 repeats the last search, regardless of what was last searched for (Name, Type, Way, Author etc.).

The Find menu is spit into two sections with the following contents:

  • Various search options
  • Search again
