This extension creates a search box in a Visual Studio 2010 toolbar and Team menu which is used to pull up a work item directly by its ID or search through work items based on text entered.
A big thanks goes out to Noah Coad for publishing the open source code for thehttp://searchworkitems.codeplex.com/ addin for Visual Studio 2005 and 2008, which helped us tremendously when we created this extension for 2010.

* Additional note: The default search fields are Title, History, and Description. If you want to modify which work item fields are searchable, type in "--template" (no quotes) into the search box and hit enter. This will open the search template. Just add another "Or" statement, pick the field name, select an operator, type "[search]" (no quotes) in the value field, and hit ctrl + s to save. The next time you run a search it will use the modified search template.
