    I haven’t used it but the Analyse Plugin may be useful here based on description:

    “With this plugin you can search for multiple patterns in any of the opened documents in NotePad++.”

    Cheers.

    This work perfect only if i put a words then click add

    but here comes another question

    how can i add multi words a word per line ?



  • i tried this and didnt work…its complicated

    “didn’t work” gives us no further insight into your problem…

    if i have to repeat this vertical bar on each txt file it will take all day

    Well, there is a Replace in Files function, but I really hesitate to give more advice because the overall need is so vague.

    maybe someone can make a plugin

    Nobody but possibly you is going to make such a plugin.

    I suppose the bottom line is that you have to state your problem in a much better and much clearer way before anyone can really help. We tried.



  • @BAZ-BAZOOO

    More advice for you HERE about your call for “someone to make you a plugin”

    I suppose the bottom line is that you have to state your problem in a much better and much clearer way before anyone can really help. We tried.

    Okay here is my clear way to explain what i need

    very simple

    for example if i have 100 line and each line contains many words such as

    ihgfR678ihGFDFyuiI_ABCDEFGZZZZZZZZ
    jhgfTYUijhgFHGHJkjhgfYUI_ABCDEFGZZZZZZZZZZ
    jhgfRTYuhgfDRTYUI_AAAA
    JfgyudftyHvc_rrrrrRRRRR

    I want away to highlight all line that contains _ABCDEFG which is the first and the second ,

    a plugin where i can feed the app with a list of lines that i am looking to highlight into a text file using notepad

    am i clear now ?

    thank you so much for your time ,



  • @BAZ-BAZOOO said in Bookmark multi words from multi lines in a text:

    am i clear now ?

    Not really. Maybe?

    each line contains many words

    I saw some lines with ONE “word” per line (as the definition of a “word” is alphanumerics plus underscore, and words are separated with spaces. I saw no spaces in the lines.

    I want away to highlight all line that contains _ABCDEFG

    So this _ABCDEFG would be on a line by itself in a text file of other such words?

    I will see about scripting something up, where the list of words is in view2 and the file to apply marking to is in view1.



  • So I came up with the following Pythonscript.
    Basic scripting instructions can be found HERE.
    The script will take a list of words in the active tab of one of the views, and apply marking to active tab in the other view document.
    The script attempts to autodetect which view is which.

    Example, after running:

    06ad2222-227f-4c4a-b9d8-8f8d6c134a71-image.png

    The script:

    # -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
    
    from Npp import editor, editor1, editor2, notepad
    
    class T19249(object):
        def __init__(self):
            SCE_UNIVERSAL_FOUND_STYLE = 31  # redmarking indicator number; name from N++ source code
            files_in_view_count_list = [ 0, 0 ]
            for (_, _, _, view) in notepad.getFiles(): files_in_view_count_list[view] += 1
            if files_in_view_count_list[0] == 0 or files_in_view_count_list[1] == 0:
                notepad.messageBox('This script requires 2 views to be open', '')
                return
            editor_for_text_to_mark = editor1
            word_list = editor2.getText().splitlines()  # try secondary view first, looking for 1 word per line
            for word in word_list:
                if ' ' in word.strip():
                    word_list = editor1.getText().splitlines()  # try primary view, looking for 1 word per line
                    for word in word_list:
                        if ' ' in word.strip():
                            notepad.messageBox("Can't find one-word-per-line list in either view's active tab")
                            return
                    editor_for_text_to_mark = editor2
                    break
            for word in word_list:
                matches = []
                editor_for_text_to_mark.search(word, lambda m: matches.append(m.span(0)))
                editor_for_text_to_mark.setIndicatorCurrent(SCE_UNIVERSAL_FOUND_STYLE)
                for m in matches: editor_for_text_to_mark.indicatorFillRange(m[0], m[1] - m[0])
    
    if __name__ == '__main__': T19249()
    


  • Hello, @alan-kilborn and All,

    Once more, a nice script ! May I ask you for three improvements ?

    • Firstly, could it be possible to type the string Bob and Carol, which occurs twice in your text ? In other words, just simply consider all contents of each line !

    • Secondly, would it be difficult to force your script to follow the Find dialog settings or take these settings in account, in some way ? For instance we would be able to get whole words only !

    • Thirdly, it’s a regex man who speaks : could you consider regex expressions ? For instance :

      • ^.{29}\K.{10}              # Marks all a table contents from columns 30 to 39

      • \bBob.{2,20}Carol\b   # Marks the two first names Bob and Carol, no more than 20 characters apart

    In your text, it would match the 3 strings Bob and Carol, Bob’s surprise, Carol and Bob’s infidelity and Carol

    As usual, Alan, do as you like to ;-))

    Best Regards

  • @guy038

    Haha, well, I was trying to keep it simple, according to the OP’s desire.
    But I will see what I can do.



  • @guy038

    Sorry it took me so long, but here’s the revised script (it is actually shorter, now!) with your desired changes, plus as a bonus it also bookmarks lines:

    # -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
    
    from Npp import editor, editor1, editor2, notepad
    
    class T19249a(object):
        def __init__(self):
            SCE_UNIVERSAL_FOUND_STYLE = 31  # redmarking indicator number; name from N++ source code
            MARK_BOOKMARK = 24              # bookmarking marker number; name from N++ source code
            files_in_view_count_list = [ 0, 0 ]
            for (_, _, _, view) in notepad.getFiles(): files_in_view_count_list[view] += 1
            if files_in_view_count_list[0] == 0 or files_in_view_count_list[1] == 0:
                notepad.messageBox('This script requires 2 views to be open', '')
                return
            search_term_list = editor2.getText().splitlines()  # search terms are in secondary view
            for search_term in search_term_list:
                matches = []
                editor1.research(search_term, lambda m: matches.append(m.span(0)))
                editor1.setIndicatorCurrent(SCE_UNIVERSAL_FOUND_STYLE)
                for m in matches:
                    editor1.indicatorFillRange(m[0], m[1] - m[0])
                    editor1.markerAdd(editor1.lineFromPosition(m[0]), MARK_BOOKMARK)
    
    if __name__ == '__main__': T19249a()
    

    For instance we would be able to get whole words only

    I think you can use the \b assertion in your regexes for this?



  • Hi, @alan-kilobrn and All,

    Many thanks for this new enhanced version !

    Before speaking about my tests of your 2nd try, I re-read all the discussion and tried to play with your first version !

    • So, regarding this first version :

    I decided to search for the word license, program and version in the N++ license.txt file. And, strangely, I did not get all the expected matches ! After a while I understood that you must have the focus on the file containing the list of words ( which are searched in the current file of the other view ). In that case, the results are quite correct !

    But if the focus is on the file being analyzed, the script seems to match only the first two matches ?!


    Now, regarding your second version :

    • Thanks, first, for bookmarking all the lines containing the matches

    • Thanks also the possibility to search for multiple-words expressions such as Bob and Carol or, even, complete sentences !

    • Finally, thanks for supporting the regex expressions. For instance, if you have a one-line file containing Bob.*?Carol, it would mark, in the current file of the other view, all the smallest ranges of characters beginning with Bob till Carol, with this exact case !

    • Note that the Python search is sensible to case, by default and does not care about the whole word notion. So :

      • To run a search insensible to case, just prefix your regex or expression with the (?i) modifier

      • To run a search which matches only whole words, surround your expression with the \b assertion. For instance, the regex search \bted\b would find the first name ted but not the string ted in the word deleted


    Now, Alan, I’m sorry but it’s time to talk about some inconveniences ! I take up your text with Bob, Carol, Ted and Alice :

    Imagine I have this two-lines list :

    \bBob.{2,20}Carol\b
    \bTed.{2,20}Alice\b

    • If the focus is on that list, the script correctly marked all the zones in red but no bookmarking occurs ! Oddly, it bookmarks the virtual final line of the list, instead !

    • If the focus is on the file being analyzed, the script correctly bookmarks all the lines where the zones belong but, strangely, it red-marks, only, the first two matches as with your 1st script !?

    I’m sure you won’t be long to find out a solution to these problems !

    Cheers,

    guy038

  • Hello @alan-kilborn,

    So, magically, the second version of your script seems to work better, this morning ;-))

    However, there’s still this minor bug, as I said in my previous post :

    • If the focus is on the file being analyzed, the script correctly bookmarks all the lines where the zones belong but, strangely, it red-marks, only, the first two matches as with your 1st script !?

    Surely a matter of minutes to get it right !

    Note that I can live with this : we just have to remember to focus on the view contening the list of words/regexes, before running your Python script !

    BR

  • @guy038

    So somewhere between writing the first version of the script, and the changing of it to create the second script, I decided that it made sense to require that the “data” file you want the markings to be shown in should be the active file in the primary view, and the “list” file of tokens/regexes that should be used to do the markings should be the active file in the secondary view, when the script is run. It is an unwritten requirement (except that I just wrote it!).

    The first version of the script, because it was simpler and only one “word” was expected per line in the “list” file, tried to determine which view contained which.

    Aside from that, with the second version of the script, I’m not seeing the problems you mention. Can you give an exact example that replicates the behavior?



  • Hi, @alan-kilborn,

    For instance, with :

    • Your text pasted, in new 1, in the main view

    • A list of four first names, pasted in new 2, in the secondary view

    • Cursor at the very beginning of new 1

    • Focus on new 1 ( the text )

    After running the script, I got :

    802b7bb5-52fb-42a3-8a5e-2305207a0592-image.png

    As you can see, all bookmarks are here, but some red marks are missing ! The script seems to only red-mark the first occurrence of each word of the list !


    In contrast to :

    • Your text, pasted in new 1, in the main view

    • A list of four first names, pasted in new 2, in the secondary view

    • Cursor at the very beginning of new 2

    • Focus on new 2 ( the list )

    After running the script, I got :

    a232e225-5cb0-43e9-a112-3392840f8378-image.png

    This time, everything went fine !

    Cheers,

    guy038



  • @guy038

    I think I remember something about possibly Notepad++ code itself interfering with scripts that are trying to use indicators?

    Perhaps the code in the script that “selects” an indicator needs to be “tighter” to where the indicator is used?

    Maybe try changing these lines of the script:

                editor1.setIndicatorCurrent(SCE_UNIVERSAL_FOUND_STYLE)
                for m in matches:
                    editor1.indicatorFillRange(m[0], m[1] - m[0])
    

    to this instead, and see if it runs differently?:

                for m in matches:
                    editor1.setIndicatorCurrent(SCE_UNIVERSAL_FOUND_STYLE)
                    editor1.indicatorFillRange(m[0], m[1] - m[0])
    

    (really what this means is just moving the “setting” of the indicator inside the loop, so that it is definitely set each time before a range is “filled” with it)

    Let me know how that goes.



  • @alan-kilborn,

    BINGO ! It works like a charm, whatever the focus is ( The main or the secondary view ) ;-))

    You’re right : placing the indicator’s definition inside the loop is the key point !

    Many thanks, again, for your cooperation :)

    Just to be sure : did you reproduce the issue, too, when focus is in the analyzed text view ?

    BR

    Mostly it worked okay for me on simpler data sets.
    But I noticed it as an issue when I was looking into a larger-dataset problem, e.g. THIS ONE, and that made me recall an issue where an indicator needs to be set right before a fill, even though the indicator was set earlier and still should remain set.



  • Hello,@BAZ-BAZOOO
    Please follow this information, To Bookmark multi words from multi lines in a text

    Find What:
    (.Query . message.\R.ApplicationGatewayID = 5009.\R.\R.\R)|^(?!.Query . message).\R?
    Replace With:
    $1

    The regex is of the form:** (<YOUR_REGEX_MATCHING_LINES>)|^(?!.<STARTING_PART_OF_REGEX>).\R?.**

    Description:

    • (.Query . message.\R.ApplicationGatewayID = 5009.\R.\R.*\R) - a line with Query and then message words on it, then the next line that has ApplicationGatewayID = 5009 on it and then 2 more lines, captured into Group 1 ($1 refers to this value)

    • | - or

    • ^(?!.Query . message).*\R? - start of a line (^) that has no Query and then message on it, then the whole line and optional linebreak after it are matched and eventually removed.

    I hope this information will be useful to you.
    Thank you.
