EditorSearchView - populating the Find-What box with text selected in the editor

SyntaxEditor for Silverlight Forum

Is it possible to populate the Find-What box of the EditorSearchView with the text selected in the associated editor control?

I've read the documentation, but do not see any property nor method of the EditorSearchView class, which could allow me to do this.

This would save the user from having to manually type in the text to find/replace, and would be inline with the general behaviour of find/replace dialogs.

Hi Anita,

The EditorSearchView.SearchOptions property is a IEditorSearchOptions. That is what has the find text, replace text, match case, etc. options on it. So you can set the FindText property there and it should update in the EditorSearchView.
