    Hi all,

    if I understand it right, view should be able to view multiple files:

    Code:
    >ver /r
    
    TCC  13.00.23   Windows 2008R2 [Version 6.1.7601]
    TCC Build 23   Windows 2008R2 Build 7601  Service Pack 1
    Registered to xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    
    >dir /k dhcp*.log
    02.05.2011  15:49           5.253  dhcp-errors_Mon.log
    29.10.2010  12:08         126.101  dhcp_Fri.log
    01.11.2010  07:47          71.584  dhcp_Mon.log
    28.10.2010  13:51         139.403  dhcp_Thu.log
               342.341 bytes in 4 files and 0 dirs
         4.130.107.392 bytes free
    
    >view dhcp*.log
    
    view starts with the 1st file in the list,
    but HOW do I get view to show me the other ones?
    "File next/previous" is grayed out and tab/shift-tab doesn't work either!

    Am I too dumb or did I misunderstand something?

    regards
    frank

    It should, but there seems to be something wrong in the latest build. I can
    reproduce the problem in the 32-bit Take Command. The 64-bit version seems
    to work until the 32-bit version runs, then neither work.

    It's out of my pay grade; I've passed it on to Charles (the V developer) to
    decipher.

    It should be Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDown but it's not working in 13.00.23 x64 for me. It used to work in an older build.

    It looks like a bug - I will look into it.

    thank you,

    build 26 fixed the problem for me. I can now VIEW multiple files with ctrl-pgup/down.

    update :

    can please someone verify if the search function in VIEW is working?

    e.g. my files contains lines with the string "NACK"

    >findstr /i nack dhcp_Thu.log
    15 10/28/10 07:17:09 NACK 172.23.128.160 <NULL> 001E33E186AF,
    15 10/28/10 07:17:09 NACK 172.23.128.160 <NULL> 001E33E186AF,
    15 10/28/10 07:17:09 NACK 172.23.128.160 <NULL> 001E33E186AF,
    15 10/28/10 10:38:12 NACK 192.168.2.100 <NULL> B482FEECCF32,
    15 10/28/10 10:38:12 NACK 192.168.2.100 <NULL> B482FEECCF32,

    but "view /s:nack dhcp_Thu.log" positions on the beginning of the file, not on the first hit.
