The new VS2022 search and replace dialog is all good and useful, but I really would like to have completion functionality in the edit fields. From what I read, this window is extendable or so, maybe not even that much work to plug that in there.

This doesn't work in VS2022 in the CTRL-F dialog for me. I have tried with and without regular expression searching.

In Visual Studio Find regular expression syntax, which is different to other regular expression syntax, \b is the marker for the start or end of a word.

you can use :anythingYouWant: to search a complite word.
search :find: and you will not get function find_if.

I am wondering if this should be something you trigger, perhaps with CTRL-SPACE, since I know a lot of the time I am not searching for a whole symbol when I use the find box. I am either searching for part of a symbol name, or a word I expect to be in a string or a comment. Obviously VA won't be much use with that.

It turns out this idea has come up once before:

Both are useful. A listbox while typing would be great, maybe even as an option to enable, like the existing "whole word", "Aa" and RegEx options.

Just to be sure, do you mean the small one that docks in the top right hand corner of the editor window, Ctrl+H for me:

IDE Edit menu -> Find and Replace -> Quick Replace

or the floating dialog, Ctrl+Shift+H for me

IDE Edit menu -> Find and Replace -> Replace in Files

I am assuming a listbox as if you were typing on a blank line at the current scope would work well enough.
