couple of feature requests: file search [message #31880] Wed, 27 June 2007 00:08 Go to next message

I'm not sure if this is a PDT thing or just an eclipse thing so I'm
posting here to find out where I should post my feature requests.

Both relate to the search dialog.

When accessed via ctrl-h, could it remember which tab/settings you used
previously and take you straight back there? It's kind of annoying that
it always defaults to the php function search, most of the time I use it
for file search since I normally can jump straight to a function/class
by ctrl-clicking anyway.

The other thing is that if your 'navigator' view is detached from the
main eclipse window, the checkbox to search 'Selected Resources' doesn't
work, you get '0 matches in empty scope'. This seems more a
straightforward bug, but my suspicion is that this is a bug with eclipse
itself.

Cheers
Tom

Hi list,

Amongst other things, I also agree quite a lot frankly but don't feel
the urge to post that feelings.

As for the problem, have you tried
Window->Preferences->General->Keys
Switch "Category" to "Search", "Name" to "File Search", and remap Ctrl-H
with it. Should take you directly to the "File Search" - Tab when
pressing Ctrl-H, instead of the "PHP Search" Tab.

Cheers,
another Tom

Awesome. Thanks for the tip!

I stand by the second thing though about the 'Selected Resources' thing
should work properly even if the navigator view is detached...

Hi Thomas

I also find this bug very annoying because I use the file search very
extensively (it is soo useful in a big project!)

BUT I can't make your tip work?
What to mean by "switch name to File search"? I don't have a "file
search" entry under my Window->Preferences->General->Keys setting.

I hope I can make your tip work it would save me lots of time :)

Cheers
Matt
