File Explorer view

The File Explorer view in JSONBuddy is a central place to work with your JSON data. To quickly find a Folder from the history just start to enter any part of the path you are looking for at the Explorer edit field on the left side. The screen-shot below shows the list of suggested entries from the history of all visited paths if you enter "Examples" (for this user).
You can also use the Folder-browse button to set a path for the Explorer window. The Explorer view starts to load a list of all files and folders if a valid path is available.
The Explorer window allows to arrange the order and to set the width of each column separately. Those settings will be restored on the next start of the application. This way it is possible to modify the appearance of the view to fit special needs.
If "Search in sub-folders" is checked the list will also contain all files in all sub-folders of the current path. This feature gives quick access to all files even in deeply nested directory trees. Reading a lot of files from all sub-folders can take a while. Therefore it is possible to stop this process at any time by simply removing the check from the "Search in sub-folders" option again.
It is possible to find specific files by name or other options with the Find-edit of the File Explorer view:
The edit field is used to input the search string and supports the common * and ? wildcards. The existing list of items is reduced immediately to a list of items matching the search string. Use the red "X" button to clear find results and get all files and folders of the current path again.
