Quick Search: Find next/previous

Postby Fantasyfr » Wed May 25, 2011 2:49 am

Searching the connection list would really benefit from the possibility to find next and previous occurences of the search string. [Hotkey?!]

I am a little confused. Are you referring to open connections? If these are open connections, what criteria would you use? Connection name? Host name? Tab text?

Also I am curious how many concurrent connections you have open to have the need to search for them.

@thrilleratplay, there's a search box at the bottom of the Connections panel. It's easy to miss.

I took a look at this request and it's a lot harder than it would seem. The way the tree control works makes it difficult. I'll have to think a bit about how to implement this.

I was one of those who never noticed this until you pointed it out. I have been thinking for some time now that I wish there was a search and here there was one the whole time. A few questions and/or requests for it though:

1. Is there a shortcut key for it? If not, can one be created?

2. How do you advance to the next result? Typically it would be F3 but that doesn't appear to be the case.

3. What is it searching? Just the name of the connection? It would be great if it also looked at description, hostname, and user field.

Thanks!

1. Yeah, we can add a shortcut key.
2. You can't yet. That was what this request was for. Harder than it seems.
3. It only searches the connection name.
