Plugin Feature needed

  • Hi,

    I’m looking for a ‘search / research’ plugin feature, showing searching result in the vertical scroll bar of the document.
    When i’m searching for an exprssion into a doc, expression found are highligted, but we are obliged to scroll all the document to quickly see where expression is used.
    On certain IDE, results are shown in the scroll bar too, represented by colored lines and as the scroll bar represent the complete document, it’s quick and easy to identify where expressions are used.

    Is a such plugin already exists ? and if not , will it be possilb eto devleopp it ?

    Many thanks

    What’s about (menu) Search -> Find (Volatile) Next (standard keyboard shortcut CTRL+ALT+F3) and (menu) Search -> Find (Volatile) Previous (standard keyboard shortcut CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+F3)?

  • ;) thx but, this tips doesn’t show me a graphical view allowing me to quickly see where are located the expression in the code i’m searching either not showing me the density of the occurrence…

    Like shown in this screenshoot exemple :

    I know that my suggestion is only a workaround. I provided it since you can not expect that this feature gets implemented in Notepad++ in the near future (if it will be ever).

    But if you want you can file a feature request. >>> Learn here <<< how to do that.

  • I’ve found this morning a plugin including with this functionality but not matching in totality the behavior i excpect, it’s ‘jn-npp-plugin’

    The scroll bar is enhanced when a text is highlighted, but the scroll bar represent only the part of code visible at the screen.
    but it’s may be a good point of start…

    But i’ll ask for a feature request .

  • @Bruno-BOBICHON

    the chances of getting this feature implemented is higher, if you file a request to a plugin developer.
    we are currently on hold to implement new features at the notepad++ core itself.
    we are focusing on improving existing features and stability, and there’s much to do at the moment.

    many thanks and best regards.
