Eclipse and find in navigator

Does anybody know if there is a way to have Eclipse find an entry in the navigator based on highlighted text.

 

i.e. say I am viewing the source for a VF page which looks something like this:

 

<apex:page controller="MyPageController" sidebar="false" showHeader="false>


......

 

 

I would like to be able to look at the source for the controller.  Is there a way to highlight myPageController in the editor for the page and have Eclipse find the entry in the Navigator or open up the source code for the controller?  

 

With a large project (100+ classes), its time consuming to have to visually find it in the navigator each time.

Hello,

 

Use File search. Copy the text u want to find in your project, press Ctrl+H and paste it. For File name patterns use *.cls, *.component, *.page, *.trigger, and use Workspace for the Scope.

 

Hope this helped,
