How is it possible to search feature in QGIS?
I have lots of points with
ID. Is it possible to search points using
Update: I'm looking for a solution that centres the map to that point.

MMQGIS has some nice searching tools: http://michaelminn.com/linux/mmqgis/
It's available as a plugin, and when installed, there's a white button available that does simple, fast searching on an attribute field. That works really well for searching for a value in a dataset you have.
It can also search using the Google Places API or Open Street Map, so you can search for anything at all.
I reckon MMQGIS is the one for you.
(For QGIS 3.x, Locator bar at the bottom of the window)
As @fuzzysolutions mentioned, use
f <search_term> to search for any attribute on the active layer.
af <search_term> to across all layers by Display Name (configurable under Layer Properties -> Display)
Search Layers plugin is still needed to search all layers by any attribute.
Just to revive this old thread for others: Searching features (and many things more) has been greatly improved in QGIS 3.x by the QGIS locator bar. There is less need for additional plugins now.
For features, type "f ATTRIBUTE" with any attribute - you get a list of suggestions with the field name and the respective attribute value. Select using the arrow keys, then press enter to zoom to it.
I have the same problem too. In newer versions of QGIS haven't found any extension to do that. "find by attribute" was great. I have made a arcview 3.x extension to perform that job, you can download it here if you like: download. I'll try to make it for QGIS but python is quite harder for me. Anyhow, I think my tool could help you if you have Arcview 3.x.
