How to search for parentheses

I have been looking through all the help files and forums, however, I am having a hard time trying to find how to search for a string that has a parentheses.

IE: search all files with the string ".find(<t".

I have put the quotes around the string, however, that does not work. I am looking for the exact string as above - no math to this string. IE: it is for searching C# code in looking for finding a record inside of a structure of <t> type.

Can someone please help?

thanks,
HH

From the Help file:

All punctuation typed in the search text field will be treated as a space, except when the punctuation is used as part of a search term.

I think you will find that parentheses are punctuation.

In other words, your search will not work.

Just to echo what Kenward said. X1 does not index punctuation, therefore there is no way your search can work I'm afraid.
