Subject [jira] [Updated] (NETBEANS-1220) Editor Search String lost
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2018 05:19:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NETBEANS-1220?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Bernard updated NETBEANS-1220:
------------------------------
    Description: 
Problem Description

I use the following out of two options:

In Tools|Options|Editor|Search|Editor Search Behavor|Enter find next

With this option enabled, I need to press [Esc] to locate the cursor at the first instance,
meaning that I do NOT use the [Enter] key. Unfortunately this use results in the search string
not being pushed into the search history list where I type the search string. Therefore, in
future searches, the search string cannot be looked up from the search string combo box.

How to reproduce:
 - In Tools|Options|Editor|Search|Editor Search Behavor|Enter find next
 - locate the cursor at the top of a Java file
 - [Ctrl+F]java[Esc] locates the cursor at the first instance of "java", typically in the
import section
 - [Ctrl+F]util[Esc] locates the cursor at the first instance of "util", typically in the
import section

Expected behavior:
 - [Ctrl+F][Down] should find the string "java" in the list

Actual behavior:
 - [Ctrl+F][Down] shows a list with the string "java" missing from the list

This means that the Editor Search Behavior option "Enter find next" is crippled, and it is
difficult to create a harmonious work flow while refactoring code. In simple terms, it is
frustrating.
