Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSTUDIO-634) add search context menu entry / simplify search

add search context menu entry / simplify search

                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-634
             Project: Directory Studio
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: studio-ldapbrowser
    Affects Versions: 1.5.2
            Reporter: Jürgen Weber

To search, you currently select a tree entry in ldap browser, then new -> search

I find this not very intuitive to have to click new to get a search dialogue (I know, this
is the Mac "everything is a document" spirit ;-), for me, the collection of search results
is useless, especially, as it is hard to re-use them (scroll down, find the last, change properties,
double click).

I suggest to add an additional context menu "Search" to the tree entries, which would immediately
get a search dialog. If you allready had done this previously, you get the previous search

This menu entry should be right at the top. Also, there should be an entry "show last search

show last search result

I think, this is what you mostly need, I never need or use the list of old searches.
