Long needed feature. great.

1) It keeps the current frame visible, even if it does not match. That 
means a frame, that is not in the Tree is visible

2) It would be good to also search list/tree in the frames, like
- the names of colors on "env" > "Form Editor"
- the names of colors on Editor>Colors
- keymapping
- editor/codefolding
- debugger general, property grid (same on "help")
- dbg, exception list

- dropdowns/checkboxes are searched, but not highlighted
- same for group-boxes / toolbar buttons

3) does not search text in radio buttons (e.ge Editor/ mouse)

Hints are not searched
