Search

Reflection features a Search box at the upper right corner of the workspace, in the Help frame, and in some settings dialog boxes. (To open a settings dialog box, from the Reflection button, choose Settings.)

Workspace

From the workspace, you can use the Search box to perform a search of the open documents and screen history in Reflection, and for content on your desktop and on the Web.

The following commands are available from the workspace Search menu:

Current Document Search

Searches only the selected document. Text matches are highlighted in the session (on-screen).

All Documents Search

Searches all open session or Web page documents.

Search results appear in a separate pane at the bottom of the workspace. Double-click an item to highlight it in the session (on-screen).

Screen History Search

Searches the screen history of open terminal session documents.

Search results appear in a separate pane at the bottom of the workspace. Double-click an item to highlight it in the session (on-screen).

Windows Desktop Search

Searches files and folders including the content of text files and Microsoft Office files on the desktop, using the Windows Desktop engine. (In Windows XP, for this option to be available, Windows Desktop Search must be installed.)

Search results appear in a separate pane at the bottom of the workspace. Double-click a file to open it in the associated application.

Google Web Search

Searches the Internet using the Google search engine. Results appear in a new tab (Web page document) in the workspace.

Live Search

Searches the Internet using Microsoft Windows Live Search. Results appear in a new tab (Web page document) in the workspace.

Help Search

Searches the Reflection Help system.

Help

You can search the product Help from the Search box in the Help frame, or from the Search tab in the help navigation pane. From the Search box in the Help frame, you can also search the Attachmate Support Site.

Settings Dialog Boxes

You can use the Search box from a dialog box to look for a word or part of a word in the various Reflection settings dialog boxes. At the top of the dialog box, search results that match your text, together with a navigation path, are displayed in a separate pane. Double-click an item to navigate to and highlight it in the identified settings dialog box.

This search finds only terminal session settings that are included in primary dialog boxes (those that have a Search box in the upper right-hand corner). It does not search settings in secondary dialog boxes (which include those dialog boxes associated with printer sessions, FTP client sessions, or file transfer). If you cannot find the setting for which you are looking with the settings search, use the index, or search the Help. The Help topic for the dialog box includes instructions for finding it in the product.

In some instances, the dialog box search may find settings that are functionally equivalent to the term you typed in the Search box. For example, if you enter DBCS in the Search box, the results will include the check box for Support double-byte character set.
