i am familiar with the FindUsages system, however, i can not implement my requirements easily. The problem at hand: i need the user to enter some additional text-information before executing the find procedure.
The situation is as follows:
- I do have a kind of SqlStatement concept in my language, which contains an sql-string as text (The SqlStatement concept contains a string property)
- I need to provide a window to search for SqlStatements containing a specific Table-Name.
- The result should be visualised similarly like the find-usages result window where the user can click on the result-nodes to open them.. the find-usages result window still keeps visible and docked, a very nice feature when the user wants to inspect each of the result-nodes.
- I also know how to build a custom tool for the tools menu, however, i can not access the find-usages result window easily from there (at least i do not expect that to be easy).
What could be a viable approach to provide such a search functionallity. Basically, it is very similar to the "Find in path ... " functionallity provided in all other jetbrains IDE's...
Any hint appreciated,
