How to search violation information

FxCop Integrator supports the search feature to find out specific violation information by simple search words.

Basic Search

When you input any text to search box and press enter key (or click search button), FxCop Integrator will search violations that contain the specified search word in any column.
If you input two or more search words, FxCop Integrator will find out violations that contain all of them.
You can contain a white space in search word with ' or ".

Example :
  • Foo "Bar1 Bar2"
