object-editor-search

Arguments: object-editor

This function is called by the :search-button widget of an object-editor dialog (see command-buttons), and may also be called directly by application code.

It allows the user to search for an arbitrary string in a slot (or all slots) of the edited-instances of the object-editor (which must be an object-editor). It does this by displaying a modal dialog where the user may enter the search string and select the slot to search. Multiple matches are presented in a list where the user can select a matching instance to display.

A match is found whenever the search string is a subsequence of the stringified slot value. (When the value of a searched slot is not a string, then prin1-to-string is used to produce a string to test.) The test is char= if the Case Sensitive check-box is checked, and char-equal otherwise.

Successive invocations of this dialog will initially display the previous matches. This allows the user to display another matching instance without redoing the search.
