How to enable "Search>>Find" functionality for non-text FileEditor

Find functionality only gets enabled for text editors. (Menu: Search>> Find...)
I have a tabular data editor, which I need to enhance with search functionality.

Is there a way to aggregate the standard "find" framework with a custom (non-text) implementation of com.intellij.openapi.fileEditor.FileEditor?

Hello Dan,

Find functionality only gets enabled for text editors. (Menu: Search>>
Find...) I have a tabular data editor, which I need to enhance with
search functionality.

Is there a way to aggregate the standard "find" framework with a
custom (non-text) implementation of
com.intellij.openapi.fileEditor.FileEditor?


No, the find framework is completely coupled to the standard Editor class.
