    where did the class browser quick search go? (+add to projects browser)

    hello,

    after working a lttle with 5.1 RC, I noticed one big show stopper (for me):

     

    in the classes window, I can't type-search for classes anymore.

    there is no field to enter, that i was used to in SD4.

    well, SD4 quick search was a shame, too, because it was only searching for classes *beginning* with the typed string.

     

    i have a rather large projects solution, and sometimes i try to remember where that one class in a multi-classes file was or how it was called.

     

    i'd just type in "explo" and find the classes that have that string, ordered by relevance, e.g. "ExplorerWindow, IExplorerConnector, ClassExplorerConnectionWizardExplorer"

    sorry if i missed this feature somewhere, but couldn't find something in the IDE.

    it would be also handy in the projects view. i know i could do it with Search&Replace, but its scope and handling is not a "quick search" thingy ;)

     

    thanks!

    Does global search not work for you? Ctrl+G then type in what you are looking for. If you type in "explo" it would find those classes you specified.

    thanks for the hint! :)

    yeah it kinda solves the problem.

    though it would be nicer to have it right there as a field and output organised in a tree-like manner.
