Description Petr Jiricka 2004-06-25 17:32:19 UTC
Provide user interface for fast filtering of the
project views and searching by
directory/file/logical object name. 

Filtering will be very useful in cases when there
are potentially long flat lists of objects, such
as list of Java packages in the logical project
view, or list of EJBs and web services in the
logical view of J2EE projects. To some extent, it
may also be useful in the Files view of projects.

This could be implemented in a similar way as in
Mozilla, where the Bookmarks window in browser,
and the messages window in Mail, have a textfield
at the top, where the user can type in the string
by which the view will be filtered.

With more project types this issue needed more and more. We were already asked by few users whether is is possible to
filter out some nodes from Logical View of Ruby projects. Are there any plans for the next release? (no comment here for
cca 3 year).
Comment 2 Petr Dvorak 2009-07-29 14:29:37 UTC
I believe this issue has been partially fixed by project groups (File>Project Groups) and by possibility to filter out
some files (see Tools>Options>Miscellaneous>Files, Files Ignored By IDE). Also, you can use quick search on project nodes.

Making this as WONTFIXED, noting this issue is fixed to some extent.
