Is there a built-in command for showing the find/replace dialog?

Thx,
Nick.

Also, is there a reason why ScrollBarTrayTemplates have no datacontext? I'm wondering how to set commands for buttons there.

Hi Nick,

Sorry but there isn't a built-in dialog.  We do however have the EditorSearchView control that you can embed in any dialog of your own to provide the find/replace UI.  Please see our QuickStarts for samples on how to use it.

I don't believe we set any DataContext on the ScrollBarTrayTemplates at the moment. What do you think it should be set to?

Well, your suggestion is exactly what I did. I built up a little helper to wire up the search functionality with an EditorSearchView. The issue I ran into was that I have a search button in the scroll bar tray, and I wasn't able to just bind its command property (I would have expected it to have the same datacontext as the parent control). Instead I had to walk the visual tree to find it and explicitly set its datacontext.

This seems like it could be a good addition: Add a built-in command which launches a EditorSearchView. Then all I need to do is add an inputbinding for ctrl + f and point my scrolltray button to that command.

The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0684) was released 17 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
