Can the Everything SDK add filter?

Post by qianw » Tue Oct 15, 2019 4:45 am

Does anyone know how to add filter to the Everything SDK?
For example, Search “abc” in the “c:\Windows” directory.

The filters in the client are not exposed to the Everything SDK.
For example, the Audio filter can not be used from the Everything SDK.
For example, Search “abc” in the “c:\Windows” directory.
Please use the following search in your SDK query:
"c:\windows\" abc

If you want to search for audio files or other filters, you will need to implement these yourself, for example search for audio files with filenames containing abc:

ext:aac;ac3;aif;aifc;aiff;au;cda;dts;fla;flac;it;m1a;m2a;m3u;m4a;mid;midi;mka;mod;mp2;mp3;mpa;ogg;ra;rmi;spc;rmi;snd;umx;voc;wav;wma;xm abc

The next major version of Everything will support filters from the SDK.
