Search box in Browser for both tables and fields


Everyone likes the search functionality in the Jfx window, it's very powerful and very easy to find a certain field.

However, this is absent in the Browser. So if I'm looking for a certain "date" field, I have to open the Jfx, select the table there, then type in "date" to see all the date fields available on that table.

It would be a very nice functionality to have this in the browser, as per attachtment.

    I would also add this functionality to the report options window where lookup is available.

    I agree with your request for a search box in Jet browser. But for the Moment you can search for fields and tables if you Focus tables or fields area and just start typing.

    That's not even remotely the same thing though.
