Qt autogenerates files with moc_xxx.cpp, qrc_xxx.cpp and ui_xxx.h patterns.

These are often not very interesting when trying to open a file, so if they could be sorted to be places last in the dialog (or filtered out with a checkbox similar to "show only files in the current solution"), it would make it much easier to find the right file there.

Bonus props if this could be configured by wild-cards (or regex) in the options. (Perhaps that's best, as it makes the whole thing generic, and not Qt specific)

"Open File in Solution" is probably the feature I use the most in Visual Assist, so adding this feature would make me very happy.

We are considering adding a setting to specify certain file names, "*moc" perhaps, to be exclude from the Open File dialog for just this reason:

case=25837

I am not sure regular expressions would help, simply because just about every program I use that supports them does so slightly differently. I am a great fan of regular expressions, but these differences really do cause problems sometimes.

If not regexp, just wildcards. As longs as it's customizable.

Any regexp-implementation is fine, as long the app points to the documentation of the particular syntax/implementation (Boost? .NET? Qt?, etc... ). It's mostly basic stuff one wants anyway.

case=25837 is implemented in build 2283.

Use the context menu in the Open File in Solution dialog to display the edit control for the persistent filter. Hide the edit control after adding the text that you want to always persist. The text affects filtering whether or not the control is visible.
