Describe Key request: add a search feature

Use case: "What are the shortcuts attached to macros related actions?"

With that enhancement, you'd just type "macro" in the search field, and
would be presented with the list of related actions.

Hi Alain,

I've tentatively put Describe Key 0.2 in the Plugin Manager. It's a first pass at being able to look up actions by name (or description).

Right now it only looks up through actions that are mapped in the active keymap -- next step is to make it look through all actions (mapped or not).

If that validates the concept I'll polish it a bit and put a readable table in place of the current textarea.

Thanks,

Vince.

A second panel - like now - is ok if you provide a way to reach it with
one keypress, from the main screen.
I'd suggest capturing the plugin own shortcut => press Alt-Ctrl-K twice,
and you reach the "browse" area.

Hi Alain,

thanks for the idea. I've uploaded Describe Key 0.3 that comes with
these changes:
- The Describe Key dialog will launch the Browse dialog if it detects
a binding to itself (i.e. it could be something different than the
default)

- The Browse dialog finds a lot more actions but I still haven't figured
all the secrets of the action system ;)

This one is just for IDEA 5.

Thanks,

Vince.
