Delphi and C++Builder IDE Tip of the Day

One of the most useful features and I believe least used is CTRL + F12. This brings up a list of all the units in the project manager, allows you to type one in and open it. Very handy. It turns out that the little down arrow on the right side of the edit view also has a shortcut key, CTRL + ALT + F12. This allows you to quickly view the open units, especially useful if there are more units than can be shown on the screen at once.

So there you have it, a quick tip before the Christmas break. I won't be posting here again until the new year so everyone have a great Holiday, Christmas and New Years!

And it would be a lot more useful if the dialog would use partial search.

Andreas,

Yes, yes it would.

OK, Andreas is too nice a guy to mention his own great work. Everyone go and get his DDevExtensions and have the unit selector (with partial search) done the right way.

If 'it would be nice' to have this for units which are few in number
(and of course it would), how much more for the components on the forms
of the opened project which tend to be many? :-) (QC #56302)

GExperts offers excellent "Open file" add-on with searching...
