How do I locate all the items of a given type in my PB application?

There are several options to explore this kind of information.
Option 1: for a given application and a specific item type
This option includes more manipulations than the second one,
VE7 projects can include several applications.
When selecting a given application, you can execute the macro "All PowerBuilder Objects":
Down in this list, you can select the Tab control and execute the macro "All items":
CAUTION: only native tab controls used in the application are listed,
If you wish to list the use of a particular userobject inheriting from the tab control:
* go down the userobjects list and select the one that you're interested in ("u_tab" in the example below)
Option 2 : comprehensive search for an entire VE project
This option includes less manipulations than the first one,
In the treeview, select "PowerBuilder System Objects" under the section "Application"
