Would it be possible to have access to the source for EditorSearchView tool window?

I would like it to behave like the Visual Studio find/replace window, specially the following:

- Whenever the window is activated (normally through a Find/Replace command) the search text is selected (making it easy to replace, if you start typing)
- If you press Enter while on the search TextBox, it defaults to "Find Next" button.

It might look like something silly, but I think it's really important when you use search/replace a lot.

Edit: The main reason I ask for the source, besides adding those small tweaks, is to be able to expand the "Look in" section to a wider scope.

(Another small, but very nice touch, is the ability to bring the search window on command (Ctrl-F or something) and to have it close with Escape).

i have a window(dialog) with the EditorSearchView control in it.

i want to notify my IDE that a search has been done and give the result to the IDE, e.g. in the statusbar. Is it possible to add an event to the control which has the ISearchResultSet as an argument?

Hi Martin,

We already have the SyntaxEditor.ViewSearch event that you can handle. That includes the result set too.
