Kexi/Main Window/Search

Global Search, in a box at top-right.

Usage: Type Ctrl+K to focus it, as in browsers. Full-text search. Highlighing items highlights relevant areas in GUI. Pressing Enter jumps to the GUI element.


For 2.4 it can be used for searching through object names (tables, forms, etc). Implemented by jstaniek. Available in Calligra RC1 and later.

Ideas for extensions

  • Have a combo box on the right to filter searching (with check boxes) eg:
Objects (As a seperator)
Data (As a seperator)
Data in Database Tables
  • Search objects / data using RegEx
  • Find related fields I depend on
  • Find related fields that depend on me
