Searching (Find/Replace) Scope

SyntaxEditor for WPF Forum

We have a WPF application that allows users to open many documents, each with its own syntax editor control. Is there any way to use the search functionality to broaden the scope from just "Document" or "Selection"? We'd love to allow our users to search amongst all open documents, or even across all documents (even if unopened at that time).

I'm sorry but at this time, we don't have a feature that supports searching additional external scopes like multiple documents. I will write down your request for this feature with its TODO item so that we can let you know if we begin work on it.  We've had several other requests for this functionality as well.

You would have to use a custom dialog for searching the solution, or perhaps just customize the EditorSearchView's template to add options for it. This would also need you to probably intercept all the various button clicks and take different action if a multiple documents scope was chosen.
