Search box of Web IDE


#1

@Dave and @jgoggins,

I'm not sure exactly when this was rolled out or all the while there but i used the CTRL + F often in the Spark IDE.

This morning, I clicked on the coding area and hit CTRL + F and this appeared

It's pretty cool but not that cool so let me explain why smiley

  • There is no next/previous button so it's like searching for the keyword nearest in the code
  • If you do not hit ENTER in the search field (with or without keywords), the Error code display doesn't show up

I think is is a recent new feature as i noticed that the error window seems to have the always on top settings as i noticed the scroll bar is behind it compared to the previous time the minimize arrow was introduced.

I think the search box has been there for at least a week or two. I just don't remember when exactly. :-/

Hi @kennethlimcp,

Thanks for catching that! I'll add it to our build IDE bug list. smile

Thanks,
David

@dave,

So this might help the IDE solve this:

1) Clicking on verify/save/flash should close the search and return to the error output

2) Adding a up/down or left/right + counter for the search field

Is there any ETA on when it’ll be possible to find more than the first match in search?
Currently I have to copy and paste everything into sublime text to search my code! (unless its a hidden keyboard command i’ve missed)

Good question! You can hit “ctrl-g” or “apple-g” for “find next match” :slight_smile:

Thanks,
David

Perfect, thanks!

How do I get the Search to go away when I click Verify? If I press crtl-f the Search Window appears.
After that, when I click Verify the Search window still remains when I click Verify and I can’t see my errors.

I am not a fan of the search feature. It’s hard to see what’s highlighted and it’s hard to tell when your search returned no results. Can I change the IDE background from black to white? That would probably help.

This is a necro thread apparently but, on my mac 10.11.2 running Chrome 47.0.2526.106 pressing command+f brings up the search field and command+g finds next but HOW DO I MAKE IT GO AWAY?!? Saving, compiling, everything gets hidden with the search field camped out down at the bottom of the screen. I have to reload or clear cache to get it to go away…

am I doing something wrong. I’ve resorted to copy-pasting into my goto text editor to find/replace…


#11

The bug still exists in the IDE making the CTRL-F (on Windows) a pain because you must shut down the browser and come back in to clear the Search: area at the bottom of the window. Has anyone found an easier and less disruptive workaround?


#12

On my Web IDE (on Chrome in Windows 7) hitting ESC will dismiss the search window.

I like the CTRL-G to find-next. Is there also a find-previous?
