Find in Files should search in Current file's project

Post by hbr_in » Sun Sep 21, 2008 6:13 am

Hi,

In Multi-Project environment, Most of the time we use find in files
to search only inside the current project. Could you add an option for "look
in" -> "Current File's Project". This should search only within the Current
File's Project.

Feature Request -> http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.ph ... tid=979963

Thanks & regards

Hi Gururaja,

Isn't that already there? The second field of the Find In Files dialog says Entire Workspace by default, but if you click the down arrow you'll see the alternative of Active Project.

Regards,

David

I think he means that in case the open file is not part of an active project, allow 'Find In Files' to search that file's project, this could save some clicking: right click on the file's project (you need to find it first...) and then set it as active and invoke the 'Find in files' dialog again.

Hi,

Eran had told me about implementing this before. I just started a reminder.

Actually i asked to make "Active Project" the default. But eran came with the gr8 idea of adding a new entry "Current File's Project" & making it the default.

Thanks & Regards
