Expanded search scope for FPGA nodes

When searching for text in a vi or group of vi's, the search isn't able to look inside an FPGA IO node/property /method and "find" a match if the text searched for is in the name of the item.


So if I have an FPGA DIO line configured as "MyBasicIO" and search for that text, it will not currently find any IO nodes for that item.


This is frustrating and time wasting if I want to find every instance of my setting a particular IO point.


So generally what I do is a search for an object of that type (for example, IO Node).  Then it finds all IO Nodes, not just the IO Nodes for the item I'm interested in.  So I have to manually scroll through the list to see which ones are for the point I'm interested in and which are for other points.
