This is a nice feature. I have one very minor (maybe even petty) issue as illustrated by the following sequence:
(1) Select a word -> Occurrences are highlighted
(2) Deselect the word -> Highlights are turned off
(3) Select the same word again - with no intervening selections -> Nothing happens
At step (3) it would seem that the Occurrences should be highlighted again, but to do this you must first select something else and then return to the original word.
Thanks for a nice feature!

I just added a patch to svn that should fix this issue.

For me it only occured if a word was reselected with a double-click.

This is not a plugin. It is in the main source of C::B

But it was a plugin sometime (long time) ago, isn't it? Because I have a plugin version... :-p

Anyway, thx!

Sorry, my bad, I am looking for the "Occurence HighlightER" plugin from danselmi, which make highlights permanent for selected words...

I'm sneaking what the "competition" does and I've found one feature which could be really useful.

See the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=fndDT2GK-KU

The feature they've added is keyboard shortcuts for going to the next/prev occurrence of the highlighted text.
How hard would it be for this to be implemented?

I'm afraid that finding references is a lot more complicated than finding syntax-agnostic substrings. Though it would be immensely cool (especially since non-patched occurrence highlighting doesn't do 1-character and 2-character selections, such as variable names like i, or pt, or it).

What would be even more helpful would be a feature to select all references, rather than highlighting them. Code::Blocks already supports non-standard selections and typing into all of them simultaneously. Now, for intuitive, quick-and-failsafe renaming, all one needs is "select all references".

I didn't know about this, where is this option? I have been looking around in menus and context menus, but I can't make multiple selections (let alone typing in multiple places).

Look into "Settings -> Editor... -> Margins and caret -> Selections" .
