Highlight Find Results

Highlight all of the results of an IDE Find command—in text editors and output windows.

Press Esc to clear the highlighting.


Enable highlighting in the options dialog of Visual Assist.

Access via Keyboard

Assign a shortcut to VAssistX.FindSelected to highlight instances of the current selection or, when there is no selection, of the word under the caret, without opening the Find dialog.  Use of a shortcut in this manner does not require that 'Highlight results of Quick Find and Find in Files' be checked -- use of the command assumes highlights are desired regardless of the state of the checkbox.

Highlight Color

Select the highlight color in the options dialog of the IDE.

Visual C++ 6.0

Highlight Find Results is not available.
