List matches enhancement to Edit->Find

Postby reksa » Mon Apr 25, 2011 2:21 am

One function I do very often is list all occurrences of a string.
Please could you add a 'List' button to the Find dialog that will list all occurrences in the
output pane (one per line) showing the line (or significant part of the line) together with
linenumber (classname, plus function name would also be useful). The user can then click
on the match in the output pane and the main editor pane will scroll to the line found.

This should work when searching multiple files also (filename would be listed in the output pane).

Also is it possible to add a 'Find File Filter Exclude filenmame list' (I often get unintended matches from backup files which have *.bak.py)

cheers

Hi,

This is exactly what the "Find All" button does already, it shows all the lines with text matching the search, what file they were found in, and what line.
