Subject [jira] [Created] (NETBEANS-28) Please reorder recent searches
Date Tue, 04 Jul 2017 17:05:01 GMT
Christian Lenz created NETBEANS-28:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Please reorder recent searches
                 Key: NETBEANS-28
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NETBEANS-28
             Project: NetBeans
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: platform - Quick Search
    Affects Versions: Next
            Reporter: Christian Lenz


When I do a quick search for "Search", I got the results for example for "Search Results (window)".
When I select it, the search results window comes up. After this I type "New File" and I see
the new file dialog, when I select the result.

When I hit Ctrl I again to go to quick search, I see the recent searches which has this order:

New File
Search Results (Window)

When I click on "Search Results" or search for "Search Results" again, I got this result again
from the recent list.

What happens afterwards when I go to the quick search again is that the order of the recent
search results, didn't change. It is still:

New File
Seaerch Results (Window)

So what I expect is this:

Search Results (Window)
New File

So a reordner of items and the really last search result should be the first item ever. Same
behaviour is in IntelliJ or WebStorm which is very handy, because if often use quick search
and the same recent search like in my case Search Results. Now I have to navigate with the
arrow keys 3 times up to get the right item, because I had other recent searches before. But
now "Search Results" should be the very first item, because of the usage of it or the last
usage of it.

To not make smth default, because other users like the other order, we should have an option
to change it from alphabetically to "last used" or "often used" or whatever.


Regards

Chris
