Examples

Sub testIS2()  
    ' Before running, open a document in Visual Studio.  
    ' Set variables for text pane.  
    Dim tp As EnvDTE80.TextPane2  
    tp = CType(DTE.ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.Object.ActivePane, _  
    TextPane2)  
    ' Start an incremental search backward from  
    ' the current insertion point in the document.  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.StartBackward()  
    ' Add the character "a" to the search pattern.  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.AppendCharAndSearch(Asc("a"))  
    ' Display the parent name for IncrementalSearch object.  
    MsgBox("IncrementalSearch parent: " & _  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.DTE.FullName)  
    MsgBox("Search pattern length: " & _  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.Pattern.Length)  
    ' Perform incremental search using the pattern ("a").  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.SearchWithLastPattern()  
    ' After the search, exit incremental search mode.  
    MsgBox("DeleteCharAndBackup")  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.DeleteCharAndBackup()  
    MsgBox("SearchForward")  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.SearchForward()  
    MsgBox("SearchBackward")  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.SearchBackward()  
    MsgBox("Exit")  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.Exit()  
End Sub  

Remarks

In Visual Studio, the DTE object is the root of the automation model, which other object models often call "Application".
