Now we’ll move to the second toolbar in the Object Browser, which is all about searching. 

Searching within Object Browser

But the search scope depends on what you have selected in the Browse combo box, or in other words the Object Browser Scope.  For example, if you try to search for System.Web in a Console Application, you’ll won’t be very successful.

No Results Found in Search

But there’s also another way to search… it’s using the Find and Replace tool window’s Find Symbol functionality.  Those of you following the tip of the day for a while will remember this one.  You’ll notice the picture closely resembles the Object Browser search functionality.
