The Find dialog and the Find and Replace dialog
are essentially the same dialog in two modes, find only, and find and replace. Switch modes
by clicking the Find mode or Find and replace
mode buttons. By default, matches are case sensitive but matches can appear as
part of longer words. Change the default behavior by setting or clearing the relevant
checkboxes in the dialog.
Open the Find dialog by clicking in the main menu. Type the text to find in the box and click the
Find Next or Find Previous buttons to search
upwards or downwards from the current cursor position. You can re-use previous search terms
by clicking on the drop-down arrow on the right of the text entry box.
Open the Find and Replace dialog by clicking in the main menu. Replace the current match with new text by clicking the
Replace button, or all matches by clicking the Replace
All button. You can re-use previous find or replacement terms by clicking on
the drop-down arrow on the right of the text entry boxes.
Figure 4-26 Find and Replace dialog
Find and Replace mode is only available if the current active window is a source editor. In
that mode, additional replace controls appear. The dialog is modeless, so you can change
views without closing it.
