            How to use WebStorm FileWatcher for current file only
            Asked 2021-May-18 at 15:10

            I want to create a custom WebStorm Filewatcher rule that performs prettier-eslint on save for the currently edited file. For my arguments, is there a way to declare that the command should be used for only the current edited file? You can see below for the file watcher rule I'm trying to create. Thanks!

            How to add to a queue from FileSystemWatcher Onchanged Event and trigger different actions based on which file is changed
            Asked 2021-Mar-23 at 21:18

            I am very new to coding (3 days in) and working on a project using FileSystemWatcher.

            My current project is monitoring file changes to trigger an action.

            I have it working correctly where it is monitoring a folder, with currently a single .txt file in it, and using OnChanged (looking at lastwrite) it triggers the action as expected. This is all fine and works perfectly, so I'm happy that I understand and can implement a basic FSW with an OnChanged event and trigger the appropriate action (go me, this is only after 3 days of learning C#).

            However, I am unsure how to scale this up to multiple .txt files in the same folder, with each file triggering it's own specific action.

            Example: A.txt, B.txt, and C.txt live in the same folder, using FSW whenever the files are changed I want to trigger an action specific to that file - so when OnChanged A.txt would trigger action a , and B.txt would trigger action b.

            I imagine I will need to use queue's, possibly with BlockingCollection(?), however I do not understand how I can get the FSW to add to a queue in a way that it identifies WHICH file has been changed and then how to link that to the specific action for that file.

            Any ideas how to mix FSW with queueing to trigger a set action?

            Any help would be greatly appreciated.

            I have added my base code below (showing the FSW and OnChanged with an example action) - apologies if messy as I'm still learning.



            Answered 2021-Mar-23 at 21:18

            The FileSystemEventArgs which is passed in the OnChanged handler has the following properties you can use to determine specifics of the action.

            ChangeType Gets the type of directory event that occurred.

            FullPath Gets the fully qualified path of the affected file or directory.

            Name Gets the name of the affected file or directory

            With those you will know which file changed. How you link the file names to actions can be done in any number of ways. You could create a simple function that links file name to a method, however you would need to compile if you needed to change the file name or action to execute.



            VS Code, How to force a save on another file when I save files?
            Asked 2021-Mar-20 at 20:01

            I'm using the VS code extension: Live Sass Compiler with Live Server and when I save other scss files than my style.scss it doesn't compile my style.scss file. Is there a setting I missed to do this?

            Since I did not find any setting for this, I thought I want to use a filewatcher so if any scss file is saved, I want to force a save on my style.scss to trigger the live sass compile.

            So I added the extension File Watcher and now I wonder what cmd to use to force a save on my style.scss file. In File Watcher extension I get the echo everytime I save a .scss file using this:



            Answered 2021-Mar-20 at 12:15

            I just needed to put underscore _ on my partial scss files. Then it will recompile my style.scss file.



            ASP.NET Entity Framework and FileWatcher Events

            I have a question regarding the EF in our ASP.NET Web Application. For our specific use-case we have to listen to a directory for added XML files. This works correctly using System.IO.FileSystemWatcher. Everything is wrapped within a class, which looks like this.

            Getting error "TypeError: Cannot read property 'doFileHasCorrectFileExtension' of undefined " from ES6 class method
            Asked 2021-Feb-06 at 19:47

            I am encountering a problem where I get the error TypeError: Cannot read property 'doFileHasCorrectFileExtension' of undefined when I create an file or an folder. I expect my application to be able to use the method doFileHasCorrectFileExtension without having it being undefined.

            As an attempt to solve my problem I created an variable that hold the object created by the class.



            Answered 2021-Feb-05 at 22:01

            You are losing the correct this by passing it into nsfw - use this.onFilesChanged.bind(this)



            C# create Filewatcher object in loop
            Asked 2020-Oct-14 at 18:59

            I am creating a Filewatcher in the loop below. I would like to know if there are any performance or reference issues, since my reference variable is the same in the loop?



            Answered 2020-Oct-14 at 18:59

            It's not exactly clear what the end goal of your code is, but if you want to use the watcher objects after the loop is done, then you'll need to save their instances in a collection outside of the loop. Otherwise you'll have no reference to them and they'll just get garbage-collected.

            For example:



            .NetCore - FileSystemWatcher on a network drive, unsafe code Win32 API crash

            I have a small Dotnet core program (3.1.8), with some FileWatchers. They watch folders on a network drive. With some load (200 - 250 files maximum here), the program crashes unexpectedly. These files come at the same time, moved by another process on another server thanks to a Biztalk app, I don't think it's relevant here but I wanted to mention it.

            Just a quick update, because I'm still on the way to fix it.

            I created a MS Support issue. After many try we just succeed to reproduce it. We had to "play" with the network and simulating some "disturbances". It seems that FileSystemWatcher events didn't been sent as it should be (It's sent by TCP protocol, SMB way). Our team is still working on finding how it can happen..

            MS agreed that this shouldn't crash the FileSystemWatcher in some unsafe code no matter if there was a real network issue. So, they just made a PR to add some security around it.

            I'm still following the PR but it should be fix in .Net 5 and backported in .Net Core 3.1(.9).

            Thanks for the help.



            GIT remote extension on Visual Studio - showing tons of unknown Changes

I tried to exclude it with all patterns in fileWatcher and couldn't help even if after reload . I did same patterns to exclude showing those files in User , Remote and workspace all areas but no luck . Any thoughts ?

            Answered 2020-May-15 at 22:38

            Node v14 introduced a breaking change to the API, specifically that the recursive option (which has never been supported on Linux) now raises the ERR_FEATURE_UNAVAILABLE_ON_PLATFORM error if used on Linux.

            A bug report and fix have been submitted to filewatcher:

            Until that fix is merged and a new version released, you'll need to stick to NodeJS < v14, or override the filewatcher package installed locally to include that patch.
