incremental-search

Arguments: configuration

Returns the value of the incremental-search property of configuration. The current development configuration is the value of (configuration *ide-system*) (see configuration and *ide-system*). This property determines whether to use an emacs-like string search that does not pop up a dialog. Applicable to text windows only.

In the host editor mode when incremental-search is turned on, control-F will initiate a search similar to control-S in emacs, where you may begin typing a search string which will be located after each character is typed. The backspace key may be used to back up to previously-found substrings within a given search. Control-G will do a find-again similar to pressing control-S twice in emacs. The search direction must be set independently rather than using a separate command like control-R in emacs to search in reverse.

This option is on the Editor tab of the Options.

incremental-search is a property of the configuration class.
