Finding a resource quickly

To navigate to a particular resource in a view such as the Project Explorer view:

  1. From Navigate menu, select Go To > Resource.
  2. In the window that opens, start typing the name of the resource in the Pattern field. As you type the file name, the system offers a list of possible matches, based on what you have entered so far.
  3. Select the resource that you want from the Matching Items list, and click OK.

The view displays the selected resource.

If you want to open a particular resource in an editor rather than select it in a view, you can use the command link Navigate > Open Resource action. This action presents the same dialog as the Go To > Resource action, but immediately opens the matching resource for editing.

You can also do a contextual search for character strings contained within files in the Workbench. See the links to related tasks below.
