Description mvinar 2003-08-21 10:39:14 UTC
User problem:
The Find in Files functionality is not very well
integrated with the window system, specifically
the results being displayed in a separate window
make it complicated to open several find result
locations and search through them.

User need:
The Find in Files tool needs be be well integrated
into the common usage workflow.

Product requirement:
The Find in Files functionality needs to be better
integrated into the workflow - both the dialog for
entering the search data, and (more importantly)
the results. Possibly integrated with the output
window the same way as Visual Studio does.
Comment 1 Marian Petras 2005-02-17 12:01:33 UTC
In NetBeans 4.0, the Search Results window is displayed in the space
for Output Window. It is no longer a separate window, it is docked
into the main window.

Marking as FIXED.
