autostart matching

Hi

Another feature suggestion: matching to start as regex is typed into the box.

Alternatively: on/off of this feature to be available for the user.

This sound like a good idea, however I'm a little concerned about how well this would perform if the user types really quickly.

Could we come up with some scheme where this was on a background thread and only ran if the previous run had finished?

The other slight issue I suppose, is which of the three options would be run (IsMatch, Match or Replace)?

This is probably the same thing as Work Item 4

I guess it should be match, because Replace seems to be for me just an option which should be explicitly clicked by the user.

As for the speed a background thread is an option which could be aborted on next key down if has not finished yet.

This really is the same as Work Item 4.
