External tools arguments - Searching multifile hits

Sep 26, 2012 at 6:07 AM

Is it possible some how to feed the text filter string from filter dialog to the external tool as a argument?

This would help in searching the same filtered content from other files if the filter string could be passed for example to external grep.

Other way to do this in LE would be to have multifile search or to extend the current filter dialog to have option to extend the search to other files and directories as well. Is this already asked/requested/suggested? Any plans? Could not find any traces of this from codeplex.
