Version Control: Ignored Files pattern: what wildcards are available?

Hi all,

Can abnyone tell me what wildcards are supported by the Ignored Files settings?

I seem to remember the help had a comments section ages ago, and that one of those comments had the answer to this particular question, but I can't seem to find the comments anymore...?

Brgrds,

Christian

* matches anything, you can't use ** to match directory levels. It's just a simple pattern with ? and * wildcards, or exact name.

If you are interested in the implementation details, check the following classes in IntelliJ IDEA Community source code:

ExtensionFileNameMatcher
WildcardFileNameMatcher
ExactFileNameMatcher
