Follow-up Comment #110, bug #53006 (project octave):

@Mike: Oh, like the pre-defined key sequences in this Qt table:



Might as well change this while it's fresh in my mind (don't think I'll look
at this anymore)...  Give the attached changeset a try.  I added the
search-while-type feature easy enough.  Along with that I also made it
"rewind" as the person deletes characters.  That is, until someone types
Enter, Ctrl+G, Ctrl+Shift+G or clicks the mouse somewhere, the search anchor
point remains the same.

The one thing I would consider changing is that I often don't like in these
in-page-find implementations the fact that I just intend to activate the
content window and click in the middle of the page, and that's where the
search starts from.  That often leaves a half page of content to the top that
doesn't get searched, if you follow me.  What we could do is get the cursor
position of the upper-left corner of the viewport and start from there (or the
lower-right corner if searching backward).

(file #43812)
