Searches for a Unicode string in multiple files in the specified location. The list of searched files will be displayed in the current window. If the current document is modified, a message prompt will ask to save the changes to the current file. This inline function is obsolete. Newer plug-ins should use the Editor_FindInFiles inline function instead. You can use this inline function or explicitly send the EE_FIND_IN_FILESW message.
