Find function?

14 posts in this topic

Hello everyone, I am wondering if there is any sort of find function that comes with a GUI (like the Fileopendialog is a GUI that returns a string), is there one that already has the find dialog made and already functions fully? I would prefer an autoIT native function if possible, however, if there isnt one, I will use a UDF, if one exists.

Thanks.

If you mean Find/Replace dialogs for edits then yes, but not natively.

Try mess around with this and if not I'll dig up a very old script of mine for you that uses it.

My advice on implementing it is to check how other common dialogs are done in the UDFs and on the forums.

As an alternative, an InputBox will do most of what you want it to. Sure it wopn't really look the same, but it's a lot easier.

Thanks... but I dont know how anyone can get help from msdn because it isnt an autoit site... just a personal thing probably tho. If you could dig up an example then that would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

There are very few GUIs provided for you with AutoIt. FileSelectFolder is one, but you generally have to make your own. There are all kinds of UDFs that have been created for finding things, and it's quite likely that one will suit your purpose. What exactly are you trying to find?

It's just for a text editor.

First up, there is actually a function _GUICtrlEdit_Find which does exactly this using an AutoIt GUI. IMO it looks crap, but it's an include and a function call, so it's very easy to do.

But I like the windows one that you see in notepad, here is the most basic example I could write. It doesn't actually do the search/replace, you have to do that yourself. Richedits make this easy with a function that does it all for you, but edits don't.

#include<WinAPI.au3>
#include <RichEditConstants.au3>

; A few constants you need that aren't included with AutoIt
Global Const $FR_FINDNEXT = 0x00000008
Global Const $FR_REPLACE = 0x00000010
Global Const $FR_REPLACEALL = 0x00000020
Global Const $FR_DIALOGTERM = 0x00000040
Global Const $FR_DIALOGMESSAGE = "commdlg_FindReplace"

; And a struct:
Global Const $tagFINDREPLACE = "dword lStructSize; hwnd hwndOwner; hwnd hInstance; dword Flags; ptr lpstrFindWhat; ptr lpstrReplaceWith; ushort wFindWhatLen; ushort wReplaceWithLen; " & _
        "ptr lCustData; ptr lpfnHook; ptr lpTemplateName;"

; First we initialise the struct we need for the find/replace dialog
Global $tFINDREPLACE = DllStructCreate($tagFINDREPLACE)
Global $tFindWhat = DllStructCreate("char Find[256]")
Global $tReplaceWith = DllStructCreate("char Replace[256]")
DllStructSetData($tFINDREPLACE, "hInstance", _WinAPI_GetModuleHandle(""))
DllStructSetData($tFINDREPLACE, "Flags", $FR_DOWN)
DllStructSetData($tFINDREPLACE, "lpstrFindWhat", DllStructGetPtr($tFindWhat))
DllStructSetData($tFINDREPLACE, "lpstrReplaceWith", DllStructGetPtr($tReplaceWith))
DllStructSetData($tFINDREPLACE, "wFindWhatLen", 255)
DllStructSetData($tFINDREPLACE, "wReplaceWithLen", 255)
DllStructSetData($tFINDREPLACE, "lCustData", 0)
DllStructSetData($tFINDREPLACE, "lpfnhook", 0)
DllStructSetData($tFINDREPLACE, "lpTemplateName", 0)
DllStructSetData($tFINDREPLACE, "lStructSize", DllStructGetSize($tFINDREPLACE))


; Create an example GUI

An example of actually searching. I'll have a go at replacement if you still can't do it yourself.

I've taken a brief look at the find function and that looks good, thanks for sharing that. Right now though, it is past midnight and I am worn out from writing functions in excel for my mum all day... but I will check back in here tomorrow if I can stay awake long enough.

Thanks.

In the mean time I did a bit of work on it, seemed like a useful enough snippet to have lying around. Replace is now working.

For the record, using this with richedits is considerably easier, as there is a built in function for searching which takes all the parameters and is far easier to use.

You're using a rich edit? Why didn't you say ;) The original example I promised to dig up was for a richedit, so I rewrote it for a normal edit box :)

Look at _GUICtrlRichEdit_FindText. It even supports searching for whole words only, and some of the other funny flags which I don't know what they do ;)

Those flags are indeed funny. $FR_MATCHALEFHAMZA appears to be something to do with an Arabic symbol. I haven't looked into the other flags, but I doubt it would mean anything to me if I did. :)

Maybe these links will shed some light on it, although I could be completely wrong about that:

WOW!!! Match...alefhamaza... uh... lo they are weird huh. Oh well, I didnt do any scripting today. A little bit of muckin round at school and right home to COD. I didnt feel like doing any scripting today, and I guess that considering I have had very few breaks in almost 3 months or so... well I'm sure u get the idea.
