Developer Console - Search text in Class

Hi,

 

Is there any way that i can search for any text in a class/page while working in Developer Console. I have a long class with thousand lines of code and need to find some specific text in that class. Browsers 'Ctr + F' does not works. It only shows me the search results from the few lines of code that is visible on the page.

 

Does DC provides any search text box which i am missing which i can use to search the text from my code?

Not working for me, tried in chrome and firefox :(

 

Collapsed the top section and the bottom section just to show the code but Ctr F only searches what is shown on the screen.

Ok, I can see that Open in a new Window when i Open the Execute Anonymous window but not for a class.

Unfortuantly, a browser's ctrl+f is the only way to currently search. It is in the pipeline. You can vote it up here:

Try clicking on any line of your code and then search using ctr+F. It will highlight all the results from the code.

...and now that LEX is here, the "search in files" doesn't search lightning components. Perhaps it will in another 5 years.

To search lightning components, use the Chrome add-in, "Salesforce advanced Code searcher". It appears at the top of your setup page and works a treat.
