Quick Search for Files and Symbols RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello all!

    One of the coolest feature in the upcoming release of Visual Studio is Quick Search for Files and Symbpls. This feature gives you a streamlined way to search and navigate to files, types and members in a solution. Quick Search is a very exciting feature because it adds an extremely powerful tool (and fast!) tool to help you get around your code base.

    We are very interested in getting your feedback on the Quick Search tool. Is the workflow effective? Is it fast enough? These are questions we're excited to your feedback on.

    For more information on the CTP itself, check out http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=129231.

  • I have seen this feature in third party tools for a while, but it is a welcome addition to those who prefer (or are required) to use naked Visual Studio. Thanks for adding this.

    It's hard to tell while running on a VM what the performance is like for me, but needless to say this Quick Search needs to be quick!
