I must code in two projects, the trunk and a branch. Both have almost the same types, obviously. Whenever I quicksearch,
two entries of the same java type appear in the result box under "Go To Type". And there is no way to tell which belongs
to which project.
Add a third column with a little more information (like the project name) or anything else would be a great help.
Having said that. I think the quicksearch is THE killer feature. I spent five minutes and I am already loving it.
THANKS... you ROCK.

No way to tell these two appart (sorry, I can't show who I am working for)
Passing to Go to type provider owners. However, there may not be enough space to show all that details, perhaps in
tooltip. We don't want to make QSearch window much wider AFAIK.
Actually, this is a bug in JavaType provider.
Sorry I changed the type. I'll fix the bug, and we can than discuss what shall be part of tooltip (Is filepath acceptable?)
Note that QSearch infrastructure has bug too - it doesn't show what is returned from ItemResult.getHint anywhere. So
msauer please reassign to me after your part is done, thanks.

Filepath would be my last option, since, at least in java projects, can be quite long.
is a typical one and it is 123 in length. Also, the information I need is in the middle (cantador-branch-stable).
I'd vote for project name. Filepath may vary on different computers when the project name will stay the same
Re: lukas hasik: That wouldn't solve the initial trunk/branch problem -- the project names are equal in this case.

I would say the info displayed should be project name and filepath should be available via other means such as a
tooltip, as this use-case is not that common (current go to type dialog does not deal with it at all, AFAIK).
I don't know about you guys, but I do use different project names for different branches. One might be "My Project
(trunk)" and the other "My Project (dev)." (I also don't store NetBeans-specific project files to the repository, so I
don't have to worry about that difference being committed or merged into the other branch.) If the projects have the
same name, how do you tell them apart?
I think having the project name in the Quick Search result would be best. At least then you have the option of renaming
one project to be able to differentiate the two types.

When it is a maven project, it would be nice to show the version as stated on the pomfile
Set target-milestone of open issue to TBD (was < 7.3, f.e. 6.8), so the issue doesn't get lost.

This should be probably fixed in the QuickSearch SPI client
