Two questions about Visual Stidio .NET ...

P: n/a
1) How can I perform backward search in editor of Visual Studio .NET?
In VC++ 6.0 it was enough just to hold Shift button. This combination
doesn't work anymore in Visual Studio .NET?

2) Each time I build C++ project in Visual Studio .NET, the annoying window
"Task List - 1 Build Error task shown (filtered)". I don't like format of
this window and rather prefer to see error messages in Output window.

How can I configure Visual Studio .NET so that this window won't open each
time I build project?

Thanks in advance

From the Find/Replace dialog, check "Search Up". I don't know if there's a
keyboard modifier to automatically make a particular search run backwards.

From the menu: Tools|Options|Environment|Projects And Solutions - uncheck
"Show task list window..."

Thanks for your response.

Well, I knew about check box in Find dialog. The thing is I never open this
dialog.
Instead I have customized toolbar with find control. The only problem is
that I can't search backward. Any other ideas how to search backward without
opening Find dialog? Thanks

As far as I can see, Edit.FindPrevious is, by default, assigned in
Shift-F3 in VS.Net as it was in VC6. If not on yours, it's easy enough to
assign it yourself.

Unless you are saying that you want to click the "Find Next" toolbar
icon while holding the shift key down, which I've never tried and have no
idea if it works --- but there is a Find Previous toolbar icon. (I put the
two of them on either side of the search box on the toolbar).

Thanks for your response. Shift-F3 works fine as well as toolbar buttons you
mentioned.
