Selective Searching

Post by LANSAfolks » Tue Mar 17, 2020 5:29 am

It would be really useful to enhance Text Searching in the Visual LANSA IDE, such that one could highlight a selection of Components/Functions and then have a Right-Click option to search for a particular keyword within the source code of your selection. e.g. You can select 50 functions, right-click and "Text Search" for a Table name to see which of the selected functions refer to the Table name within the source code.

Currently, you can only Text search within the entire repository. If the repository is very big, it can take a long time to complete the search and will give you results that you are mostly not interested in.
