Searching for files

The Go To > Resource action in the Navigate menu allows you to quickly find a resource in the Workbench by searching resource names.

You can also do more complex searches for files in the Workbench. For example, to find all files that end with .xml:

  1. On the main toolbar, click the Search button Search icon.
  2. Type .xml into the File name patterns field and leave the Containing text field empty.
    (You can use the pull-down list to select .xml if it had been previously entered.)
  3. Finish entering your search options, for example to scope the search to specified working sets, and click Search.
  4. The Search view displays the results of your search. Right-click on any item in the Search view to open a pop-up menu that allows you to remove items from the list, copy search results to the clipboard, or rerun the search. To open one of the listed files, double-click it or select Go to File from its pop-up menu.

If you close the Search view, you can return to it later by selecting Window > Show View > Other... > General > Search .
