How is it possible to search feature on Qgis? I have lots of points with Id. Is is possible to search points using ID?


I'm looking for a solution that centers the map to that point.

Find by attributes seems nice for what I want to do. I have tried Quick finder but no luck some error keep coming and I have submited that to the developer. Is Find by attribute available in QGIS 2.4 if yes what repository I can find it in? Regards Surag –  user34911 Jul 23 '14 at 1:29

"Find by attributes" plugin has an "auto zoom" to the features that were found. It can reduce the number of necessary clicks.

You have a search option in the attribute table , where you can search the features on the basis of their attribute fields.

when you search for a feature in the attribute table you will have a highlight selected feature button , which will display the selected feature on the map. –  Senthil Apr 9 '12 at 6:58

the query-builder should do the desired action (when I understand your question right). right click on the point-layer in the left paneland select query and enter your query e.g. id >100
