This patch adds action Expand All to the root node
of search results (in the Search Results window).
The action expands all the nodes currently
displayed in the Search Results window.
The action is enabled if and only if there is at
least one node below the root node.

This enhancement will not be added to NetBeans 4.0 due to performance
reasons. Expanding large number of nodes at a moment could lead to
huge memory consumption and possibly to OutOfMemoryError.
I suggest that the action would have a limit for number of expanded
nodes. So if there was no node expanded, the action would expand the
first <limit> nodes. If there were <n> nodes expanded, the action
would expand the first (<limit>-<n>) collapsed nodes.
I suggest that the limit would be something between 20 and 100.

There is "Expand All" button in Search Results window in NetBeans 7.2 and newer.
