QuickTool - Tool searching and extended keybinds

This is a configurable menu and a tool finder. It’s extremely useful if you often use wiremod or some other addon with way too many tools.

[h2]Features[/h2]
● A searchbar for your tools
● An editable menu with hotkeys (I was on a Starcraft binge at the time I wrote this.)
● You can use the keyboard (up, down and enter) to navigate the menus. (Because using the keyboard that way is faster than using the mouse.)
● Works with Garry’s Mod 13 (in case the thread date made you think otherwise)

[h2]Usage[/h2]
Menu:
● Bind a key to quicktool_hotkey
● Press that key once to open the menu (do not hold it down)
● Press the key that corresponds to the menu item you want, or use the mouse to click it. Or use the up / down arrow keys and the enter button.
● Press escape or Q to close the menu (this can be changed to another key)

Searching:
● Bind a key to quicktool_search
● Press that key once to open the searchbar (do not hold it down)
● Type in a partial tool name. “*” acts as a wildcard. Lua patterns are accepted.
● Use the up / down arrow keys and enter or the mouse to select the tool.
● Escape will close the UI

Note: It’s much faster to use the keyboard hotkeys, up / down and enters buttons than using the mouse to click on menu items.

Editing the menu:

There’s no nice UI to do this. The menu layout is stored in data/quicktool_hotkeys.txt. The default layout can be found: here and is very wiremod-centric. The format of the layout file should be pretty obvious. If you make and post a good layout, I’ll link to it from up here.

[h2]Known Bugs[/h2]
● Minor: Using the mouse to click on menu items causes keyboard navigation to stop working.

Seems quite useful, and looks good as well.

Looks very useful for when switching between wire and construction tool, trying this out now, thanks for it.

Kuelio.

Looks very nice, I was looking for something like this.

I’ve updated this addon to work with gmod13 (a long while ago.)

And I’ve just updated the original post.
