[Geany-devel] Small search UI suggestion

Hi all

Doing an unsuccessful search using the search dialog currently results
in a dialog popping up asking 

"searchstring" was not found.
Wrap search and find again?

Clicking on the Find button results in a message in the status bar
saying "searchstring" not found.

Would it be possible to change the search field background to red in
this case, to give additional visual feedback that the search was
fruitless? In the same way that the search field in the toolbar does it.
