Text Window - Search

Search


Use this function to locate a string of characters in the current file. The editor will search for the first instance of the given character string. To find the subsequent instances of the same character string use Search Forward or Search Backward commands. You can invoke this function by hitting the F5 function key (or select the option from the menu). The editor will display a dialog box where you enter the character string to locate. You can specify the search to be in the backward or the forward direction from the current cursor position or you can specify the search to take place from the beginning of the file. You can also force a non-casesensitive search, in which case the string is matched irrespective of the case of the letters in the string.

Search Forward


Use this function to locate the next instance of a previously located string using the Search Function. If the Search Function is not yet invoked, this function will call the Search Function instead. You can invoke this function by hitting the Control F Keys together (or select the option from the menu).

Search Backward


Use this function to locate the previous instance of a previously located string using the Search Function. If the Search Function is not yet invoked, this function will call the Search Function instead. You can invoke this function by hitting the Control Shift F Keys together (or select the option from the menu)

Replace


Use this function to replace a character string with another character string. You can invoke this function by hitting the F6 function key (or select the option from the menu). The editor will show a dialog box where you will enter the old and new character strings. You may also choose to conduct the replace only within a selected part of the file. To choose such a block of text, the desired text must be highlighted before invoking the replace function. This command supports these highlighted blocks:
