When you do cmd+f in the Monaco Editor, you get the find/search box appear.

Is there a way to have this open when the editor loads, with pre-populated text?

  • Are you just using the editor or are you hosting an instance of the editor in your own applicaton?– heavydAug 2 '17 at 20:04
  • I'm hosting the editor within a React application. I appear to have access to a lot or public methods on the react instance, it's just unclear whether it's possible or not!– owennicolAug 2 '17 at 21:44
  • Anyone got any insight into this please?– owennicolAug 8 '17 at 7:55
