View Full Version : LogViewer: Not a game but still Delphi and still open-source

26-06-2005, 07:55 PM
I tried to make a log viewer, displaying the content of text file real-time, like the tail command in Linux... I didn't finished it, I have many ideas of usefull features, but I won't make anything till 18 of July, when my exams are, so... if it is usefull for someone, I'll be glad

If someone wants to help me with implementing all the features I planned (or other) or just to make it better, write in this topic

Here some highlights (of what the program should be, not what it is):
*Multiple tabs with different logs loaded/displayed
*Filtering and displaying only lines of the log, wich responds to filter
*Minimize to tray
*Alert on event (such a sound or just maximize the window) - for example when in the log the word "Error" appeared ;)

There already is one with all those features. Not written in Delphi, but is open-source and free.

It does not work with tabs, but it is usefull program ;)
P.S. does it monitor changes real time 'cause I can't get it working ?

I last tried it about a year and a half ago. I think I had it displaying log entries as they were added to the file. Not allowed to install it here on my machine here at work since the IT department starting enforcing their policies on unauthorized software installs, so I cannot check right now.
