Now we’ll move to the second toolbar in the Object Browser, which is all about searching.


The search scope depends on what you have selected in the Object Browser Scope. For example, if you try to search for System.Web in a Console Application, you will not be very successful.

There’s also another way to search—it’s using the Find And Replace window’s Find Symbol functionality. You’ll notice the Find Symbol search closely resembles the Object Browser search functionality.


Happy Programming! =)
