Jump to first match in search window

SyntaxEditor for WPF Forum

Posted 1 year ago by Dirk Zellerfeld

I think it would be great if it jumps to the first match when you enter something in search window. It does that in visual studio and I find it a bit confusing to always have to press the search button or hit F3 first before it starts searching.

I've tried simulating this behavior by registering to the OnFindWhatTextBoxKeyDown event but unfortunately I don't know how to stay in current view when a match is shown. Like you type "boo" and it jumps to the first match "bool", the user types "l" and it jumps to the next "bool" but instead it should have stayed at the first match since it's still valid.

Hi Dirk,

Thank you for the suggestion.  Adding that feature to the search overlay pane was on the short list to do right after the first 2019.1 build and we have it ready to go for the upcoming build.

Outstanding support!

The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0686) was released 1 month ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
