Search for any value in watch window

I'm trying to find something in the watch window and not in a collection necessarily.  It'd be nice to be able to recurse the watch window, looking for a value.

Thanks for the feedback, Markus. We plan to create our own "Watch" window to replace Visual Studio's in the future, and this will enable the user to Search everything in the Watch window at once.


As a temporary workaround, if you want to search several variables at once, you could open the QuickWatch window and evaluate the expression "new object[] { myVar1, myVar2, ... }", hit enter, and then do a Search.
