Hello, I hope this post find you well!

For your consideration I would like to to request an option in the Find Symbol search window to allow for "function declarations"

Example classes in a CPP project:

void ClassA::DoSomething()
void ClassB::DoSomething(float param)

Here, "DoSomething" will return these symbol results


It would be useful to specify "DoSomething(float)" or similar to return more relevant results:


I am not sure how to consider function declarations that include other symbols (as a return type or parameter)

We are looking to add the ability to search on parameters as well, to allow you to pick the correct overload:


One thing we need to watch for is search performance in very large solutions, so not quite as simple as it could be, but definitely something worth doing.
