The tool bar based variant of the Incremental Search module is now obsolete. Use the sidebar based version.
I have uploaded the Incremental Search Toolbar module to my Netbeans update center described here.
This module installs the Incremental Search Toolbar.
Ctrl+/ puts the focus in the incremental search text field in the Incremental Search Toolbar. If there was text in the incremental search text field, it is preselected. You can start typing the text to search and the matching text will be highlighted in the current editor. The search text is shown in red color when no matching text is found. Typing
ENTER or Ctrl+/ again, finds the next match. Typing
Shift+ENTER finds the previous match. Typing
ESCAPE puts the focus back in current editor. The Find Next and Find Previous do what they imply.The Search Backwards check box searches the text in backward direction. The Match Case check box controls whether the case of text is considered while searching.
DISCLAIMER: This module is experimental. So no guarantees. Use the module at your own risk.
