Any matches are reported in the Search view.
When you have completed a search and have results in the Search view, you can put the focus on that view and get more options on the Search menu.
A C/C++ search can also be conducted via the context menu of selected resources and elements in the following views:
- Project Explorer
- C/C++ Projects
- Make Targets
- Outline view
- Search result view
The search context menu is also available in the C/C++ editor. The search is only performed if the currently selected text can be resolved to a C/C++ element.
The type of the selected C/C++ element defines which search context menus are available. The C/C++ editor does not constrain the list of available C/C++ searches based on the selection.
