Find Symbol Results Window
The Find Symbol Results window lists search results for the Find Symbol tab of the Find and Replace window, the Find All References shortcut menu command in the Object Browser, Class View, or the Code Editor. To redisplay this window after closing it, select Other Windows on the View menu and choose Find Symbol Results.
The name of each symbol found is listed. When source code for the item found is available, the source file and line number of its definition are also listed. For example, a search for MyObject might display the following result:
MyObject - C:\Visual Studio Projects\Project1\MyObject.cpp(29)
The Find Symbol Results window displays results from the components in the browsing scope at the time of the search. These results are not automatically updated when you change the search folders. To update the results displayed, run the search again.
To jump to the definition of the symbol, double-click a result or select it and choose Go to Definition from its shortcut menu. Select Browse Definition to view external components in the Object Browser. If your code refers to the symbol, you can expand the result node, select a reference, and choose Go to Reference to view the code.
