The Source File Filters tab allows you to specify files which should be hooked or which files should not be hooked.
By default, Bug Validator will try to hook all source files used by your application, but you can choose to list only those which should be included or excluded
•Hook all files... hook all files
•Don't hook the files in the list... hook everything except the files in the list
•Only hook the files in the list... hook only the source files listed
In the list you can include files or directories. If using directories you may want only that specific directory, or everything underneath it (the default):
•Only match exact directory... check this so as not to recurse into child directories
Add files or directories on disk:
•Add File... navigate to the source files select one or more files click Open all the selected items are added
•Add Dir... navigate to the folder select it and click OK the folder is added to the list
Or manually enter a file:
•Add... a new row is added to the list Type the file path press Return the file is added to the list
Remove items as normal:
•Remove removes selected items in the list
•Remove All removes all items, clearing the list
Alternatively, press to delete selected items, and + to select all items in the list first.
Since the list of source files can be quite complicated to set up, you can export the settings to a file and import them again later. This is useful when switching between different target applications.
•Export... choose or enter a filename Save outputs the filtered source files to the file
•Import... navigate to an existing *.bvxft file Open loads the filtered source files
The exported file can be used with the -sourceFileFilterHookFile command line option.
All file and directory specifications can contain the * wildcard.
Some examples will help:
Consider a project with three source directories:
Possible filters could be:
Reset All - Resets all global settings, not just those on the current page.
