Re: [O] Date-tree navigation question

Hi Robert,

Not sure what you want to do after opening but I have some code that
extracts a time range out of a date tree.  Maybe you can reuse the
searching parts ...


(defun mp26/org-find-headline-prefix-in-buffer (heading optional buffer 
  Find node with heading-prefix HEADING in BUFFER.
Return a marker to the heading if it was found, or nil if not.
If POS-ONLY is set, return just the position instead of a marker.

The heading prefix must match as prefix of the full headline.  It
may have a TODO keyword, a priority cookie and tags in the
standard locations.
  (with-current-buffer (or buffer (current-buffer))
(goto-char (point-min))
(let (case-fold-search)
  (if (re-search-forward
   (format org-complex-heading-regexp-format
   (concat (regexp-quote heading) .*)) nil t)
  (if pos-only
  (match-beginning 0)
(move-marker (make-marker) (match-beginning 0)

(defun mp26/org-week-from-journal ()
  Insert a copy of the current week from the journal.
(with-current-buffer Journal.orgDaten
  (loop for days in '(-6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0)
(let* ((date (calendar-current-date days))
(format %d-%02d-%02d
(nth 2 date) (nth 0 date) (nth 1 date
  (setq pos (mp26/org-find-headline-prefix-in-buffer
 date-string nil t))
  (when pos
(goto-char pos)
(car kill-ring)

 Is there a short simple key sequence that will take you to the last
 entry in a date-tree and open that headline?  Slightly better would be
 a way to go to the last, and open the last N headlines.  It could be
 generalized into go to end of current item and open last N items of
 whatever depth when applied to other outline forms.

 I know how to do this with tabs and cursor movement to walk down the
 tree opening headlines as needed.  This requires more work and paying

 I have not found a simple way to do this.  Does one exist?

Can't you just do something like this on the top-level headline for the

C-c C-k C-c C-f M-7 C-c C-p

(where N=7 in this example)

That puts the cursor on the 7th-last heading (hope that makes sense)
It's not particularly short though...
  C-c C-k - show all siblings
  C-c C-f - go forward to next headline
  M-7 C-c C-p - go back to previous heading 7 times

or maybe

C-c C-f C-b C-c C-r

You should be able to build a local interactive function that takes a
prefix argument for N to get you where you want to be.

You can also use M-3 S-TAB to open show level 3 tasks and then navigate
the folded tree.
