Description erusev 2012-11-24 18:10:12 UTC
PHP projects often have files with the same name. Being able to search directory names (along with file names) with "Go to File", would significantly improve the productivity of PHP developers.

Sublime Text 2 does this very well. They have a "Goto Anything" tool (Command + P) that searches for files both in the file names and directory names.

In the dev build, when one tries to use Go to File, all files with the same name are displayed in the result, and their file folder is displayed next to the file name. Is that what you are looking for?
Comment 2 erusev 2013-04-04 13:12:26 UTC
Not really. 

What I mean is that if the path of the file is "/folder/file.php, one should be able to find it by searching for "folder/file" and event "der/fil" and "fldrfl".

Ok, I'm not sure if it's PHP module issue, maybe it could be fixed in upper infrastructure. Have to evaluate it more. Thanks.

Ok, thanks!

I would like to vote for this feature request.
I love netbean's "Go To File" (Maiusc + Alt + O)
I think that the internal search engine should work like Sublime Text's one "Go To Anything" (Ctrl + P)

IMHO the key thing is that SublimeText uses space char as the * wildcard... this could sound stupid, but as a user, this is incredibly natural and drastrically speeds up searches!

Hello, any news here? It would be a really nice feature!
Comment 9 bugnetbean 2017-03-06 09:47:26 UTC
Please implement this feature like in Atom
I have a lot files with same name
for example: 
folder1/abc.txt
folder2/abc.txt
folder3/abc.txt
folder4/abc.txt
folder5/abc.txt
folder6/abc.txt

when using netbeans, ALT SHIFT O , i type abc ,then i have to scroll down to intended folder

when using atom: ctrl-T, i can type "folder6 abc" -> it will show only folder6/abc.txt


Thanks

there is a good plugin for this issue:

Target Milestone for this was 8.1 but we're already at 8.2 and I can't see that this has been implemented yet?

Like others here, I have lots of files named like...

moduleA/js/main.js
moduleB/js/main.js

It would be super-useful to type moduleA main.js to jump to it.

If performance was a worry, it could always be a check-box option for those who'd suffer a performance hit for the convenience.
