Hi Actipro,

I notice that IEditorSearchOptions does not have ability to control CanWrap options.This makes it harder to use IEditorViewSearcher.Search.

The closest way to control wrapping capability is to use

selection.FirstOffset /*may need to tinker a little for search up/down */,

 Is there better alternative?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Erwin,

I don't believe the VS editor ever had a UI option for can-wrap.  Every time you press Find Next, it will locate the next one or will wrap to search at the beginning if a result isn't found.  That's what we do with our EditorSearchView as well.  The search result set will tell you if a wrap occurred.

Thank you for the response.

It seems like EditorSearchView would not work in my favor. The call to FindNext highlights the next word found and set the wrapped flag to true. I may end up having to change my selection to my previous selection if the search wrapped.


I guess TextSnapshot's FindNext is my only way.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 3 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
