Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-10-06 11:26:30 UTC
When searching in projects and solutions, the Find in Files name filter should match the project virtual path, i.e. the name that's seen in the project and takes MSBuild links into account. Currently it matches the real path.
Comment 1 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-12-07 18:56:14 UTC
This is a bug, not an enhancement. The virtual path is the filename that the user sees for the file. If it doesn't use the virtual path, it will be wrong.
Comment 2 Mike Krüger 2012-04-11 04:12:30 UTC
'project directory scope' is a good idea. I don't think that find in files should  touch the msbuild format in any way - project directory should do that.

(but still not implemented)

Not a dup, this is specifically about the name filter, and applies to searching in projects/solutions as well as project directories.

Confirmed with Mikayla that this is still an issue.
