This action will trigger the search overlay for the current tab. It accepts a typed pattern string as its parameter, allowing for Regex, CaseSensitiveString and CaseInSensitiveString as pattern matching types.

The supported regular expression syntax is described here.

local wezterm = require 'wezterm';
return {
  keys = {
    -- search for things that look like git hashes
    {key="H", mods="SHIFT|CTRL", action=wezterm.action{Search={Regex="[a-f0-9]{6,}"}}},
    -- search for the lowercase string "hash" matching the case exactly
    {key="H", mods="SHIFT|CTRL", action=wezterm.action{Search={CaseSensitiveString="hash"}}},
    -- search for the string "hash" matching regardless of case
    {key="H", mods="SHIFT|CTRL", action=wezterm.action{Search={CaseInSensitiveString="hash"}}},
