Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-634) add search context menu entry / simplify search
Date Fri, 12 Mar 2010 09:35:27 GMT


Jürgen Weber commented on DIRSTUDIO-634:

> Do you know the "Quick Search" feature [1]?

No, I did not notice it, cause it is not in the tree's context menu ;-)

The Quick search is a bit too quick, I'd rather have a search dialog to enter settings.

I think CTRL-F could be better used to show a search dialog (Internet Explorer's search) instead
of showing Quick Search (Firefox's).

Anyway, having Quick Search in the context menu would be good.

> To search, you currently select a tree entry in ldap browser, then new -> search

this is the Mac "everything is a document" spirit ;-), for me, the collection of search results
is useless, especially, as it is hard to re-use them (scroll down, find the last, change properties,
double click).
> I suggest to add an additional context menu "Search" to the tree entries, which would
immediately get a search dialog. If you allready had done this previously, you get the previous
search settings.
> This menu entry should be right at the top. Also, there should be an entry "show last
search result".
