I find refactoring preferable most of the time since you can rename one
particular symbol that might be named the same as many other symbols in
the source base. Find Uses has the same advantage.
To address Ken's original request: You could use the following script
to kick off both types of search at once:
app = wingapi.gApplication
find_uses_and_search.contexts = (wingapi.kContextEditor(), )
Drop this into a file in the 'scripts' folder in your user settings
directory (listed 5th in Wing's About box) and use Edit > Reload All
Scripts. Then you should have a "Find uses and search" item in the
editor context menu: Select a symbol and then right click and select
that item. It's more useful if you have the Search in Files tool and
Find Uses tools in separate tool areas, of course.
To do the same thing w/ rename refactoring, replace 'batch-search' with
'rename-symbol' in the above (or define a second command).
You can also bind these to keys with the Keyboard > Custom Key Bindings
preference, of course.
