21.4 Search for Members

In addition to Hierarchical Search, you can use a member pattern after the dot '.' character to search for types or instances that contain specific members (for example methods, ports, events, etc). The members that match the member pattern are promoted to the top of the members pane.

Search for port example

No filter.
Filter: .sleep


Search by port name. All instances with ports that contain the search pattern are shown.
Filter: sec/.sleep


Search by hierarchy and port name. Hierarchical searching and port searching can be combined.

Search for method example

No filter.
Filter: .collect


Search by member name. All types with members that contain the search pattern are shown.
Filter: gpio/.collect


Search by hierarchy and member name. Hierarchical searching and member searching can be combined.
