Ultra Find - Free

Posted By:shankey       Posted Date: July 31, 2011    Points: 25    Category: General    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

Ultra Find is a Find in Files substitute for Visual Studio 2010. Take advantage of Windows Search and sift through millions of lines of code in seconds. Ultra Find also enables you to:

  • Search for classes and methods
  • Exclude file patterns
  • Zoom in Find Results
  • Highlight matches
  • Configure presets
  • Maintain an unlimited number of Find Results windows

Using Windows Search is not required, but is highly recommended when searching across large code bases. Ultra Find is multi-instance friendly and keeps its settings and search history synchronized between multiple instances of Visual Studio in real time.



Zoom in and out of Find Results by using the mouse wheel (while holding the Ctrl key) or by changing the zoom percentage located next to the scroll bar.

Maintain presets and restore your frequently used search settings:

Change navigation behavior:

Customize colors by changing the Find Results Window color category in Tools > Environment > Fonts and Colors.

See Getting Started for additional info on how to install and use Ultra Find.

See the topic Setting Up Windows Search to learn how to configure Windows Search for use with Ultra Find.

Comments and questions are welcome on the Getting Started or Setting Up Windows Search pages.


What's New in v1.1

  • Added new right-click option Open Containing Folder in the Ultra Find Results window
  • Added new right-click option Open Command Prompt in the Ultra Find Results window
  • Added support for semi-colon delimiters when specifying inclusion/exclusion patterns, to better match the built-in Find in Files behavior
  • Performance improvements
  • Fixed an issue which would sometimes cause double-click to not work properly in the Ultra Find Results window, in certain environments (usually because of a conflicting extension)
  • Fixed an issue which would sometimes cause Visual Studio 2010 to crash during startup or shutdown, in certain environments (reported mostly by folks using SP1 Beta of Visual Studio 2010)


How to Give Feedback and Report Problems

Your questions, comments and suggestions are welcome! Please visit the Ultra Find blog site to leave your feedback. Sadly, the discussion area had to be disabled here in the gallery because some people heavily abused this, and regrettably the gallery does not provide a way to moderate discussion, so your feedback is happily accepted through the blog site, and is strongly encouraged.

If you experience issues, please do not use the ratings section to report issues. Instead, please report any issues on the blog site before considering to leave a bad rating. By using the blog site, you will be able to interact with the author, and other people using the extension, and potentially troubleshoot issues you may be experiencing so that the problem can be fixed. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
