  • You mean that you want to search inside the files?  You will have to write your own code that opens each file, performs the search, and returns the results.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
