Searching

The number of scenarios in a project can grow very quickly, so finding the right feature file is important. SpecFlow+ LivingDoc allows you to search for tags and titles (features, scenarios, scenario outlines). To search for a feature file by feature or scenario title:

  1. Enter your search term in the Filter field. As you type, the results of the search are updated in the tree below.
    Search
  2. Feature and scenario titles matching the search term are displayed in blue. Other nodes that match the search criteria are displayed in black. Nodes displayed in grey do not contain the search term, but at least on child or parent item contains the search term. All other nodes (i.e. with no hits) are hidden in the tree.
  3. Click on an entry in the tree to display that entry.

You can also optionally search in the contents of feature files (steps, descriptions). To include steps and descriptions in your search:

  1. Enable Include steps and descriptions for filtering scenarios below the Filter field.
  2. Enter your search term in the Filter field. As you type, the results of the search are updated in the tree below.
  3. Features and scenarios containing the search term are displayed in blue. Other nodes that match the search criteria are displayed in black. Nodes displayed in grey do not contain the search term, but at least on child or parent item contains the search term. All other nodes (i.e. with no hits) are hidden in the tree.
  4. Click on an entry in the tree to display that entry.
