Request for non-popup-dialog version of search and search&replace dialogs #14

In my favorite code editors, the search and search&replace dialogs are not normally popup dialogs, but instead are mini panels that appear in the southern region of the editor as needed, and disappear when dismissed. It would be great if RSyntaxTextArea supplied this out of the box, or if it was available as part of RSTAUI. I believe that all of the APIs for hooking up this UI already exist (if feature request #13 is added), so this request is just for the UI.

Sublime Text's search panels are a great example, so I've included screenshots of that application below.

This is a great idea. I'm hacking at this right now. I'm going on vacation this week, but I'll try to write up a blog entry showing progress when I get back.


I'm working on this now; you can see the status blogged about here. It won't include wrapping (yet), but it'll be in the next release.


This work has been committed, and will be in the 2.5.1 release. I plan on fleshing out the Wiki too, to include a little doc about these features so folks are more aware of them. Closing.
