Search, select and show item in Solution Explorer

Postby koger » November 6th, 2007, 6:40 am

Hi

I would very much like a feature, much like alt+u. Where I can make an incremental search for items in the solution explorer, and when hitting enter, the item would be selected and shown in the solution explorer :D

You mean something like DPack's Solution Browser accessible via Alt-S? :)

No, not really. It doesn't do what I'm looking for, but thanks for the suggestion though.

I'm sorry but I'm not sure what your request is then. File Browser operates on the entire solution, presenting either code files only or all files. Solution Browser works on the entire solution as well, presenting file types instead. Both features essentially process more or less as much as it is shown in the Solution Explorer.

Could you describe what is that you're looking for please? Thanks.

I'm looking for a way to search for items listed in the "Solution Explorer", not the solution itself.
When finding a file in File Browser, the file is opened in the editor, I'm looking for a way to select and show it in the Solution Explorer instead of opening it.

To me it would be very useful to find files, which can't be opened in the editor, like zip-files, or files I don't want to open in the editor.

I would also be useful, when I just want to quickly go somewhere in the Solution Explorer. The bigger the solution, the more useful such a function would be.

Gotcha. I'll add it to the queue. It may take a while to get to that as I've got several big features ahead of that. Thanks for your suggestion.

Just wanted to let you know that your feature request's been implemented for the upcoming version. In the new version you'll be able to use the same File Browser but instead of hitting Enter to open a file, you'd rather use Ctrl-Shift-Enter key combination to select that same file in Solution Explorer.

If I wrap up testing then the new version should be out this weekend. Thanks.
