Developer Tools (SSDT, BIDS, etc.)
It would be really useful as soon you start typing any part of the object name a search textbox to appear with the search criteria in it and start narrowing down your results in your selected database node. In addition to this Quick Search functionality, an SSMS Object Explorer Filter functionality would be a nice complementary feature for a more specific searches.
I believe that Visual Studio 2010 Power Tools have a functionality like that in the C# Object Explorer view.
A similar search functionality would be useful in the Solution Explorer to help find quickly objects to work on by the partial search on the object name rather than to rely on the Find or Find In Files to look for the name occurences in the sql scripts.
The benefit of a search functionality would be:
- to find quickly objects to work on
- to clearly outline object with names matching the criteria
- to enable a partial object name search
