AnyEdit +1 - space stripping and resource opening

I sometimes use InstaSearch (code.inf.unibz.it/.../instasearch) but have mixed results with it (sometimes you need to force a refresh of fhe cache). It mainly creates an index and allows you to search real fast in thousands of files.

As Carl mentioned the SmartComponent Library plugin...

That plugin is primarily designed for customers of the SmartComponent Library framework. However it may be useful for other GUI for .NET developers using custom Form base classes in the Visual Designer. The plugin extends the new ABL Form and new ABL UserControl wizards in the Visual Designer with the ability to use predefined custom Form/UserControl base classes.


Please understand, that we can only provide support to customers of the SmartComponent Library that are on active maintenance ;-)
