Hi Forum

My question may be silly,

My need is I have to use my own FIND, REPLACE for whatever text editor i use,

I hope you guys understood my question

Please suggest

Thanks in advance

For Example, i have attached a text file ss.txt here

In this file i need to find the first <ref>...</ref> using the find wizard, and after that i will replace with some texts

Then i need to find next <ref>..</ref> and goes on

But i should not use the native find replace window, i need to create a window like that which performs the actions in the Active window

ss.txt

StringRegExp

StringRegExpReplace

Regex: (?i)(?:<[s*]{0,1}i?[^>]*)ref>(.*)[^s*]{0,1}[?:^<]

you will have to take care of the whitespaces or someone expert in regex might help you with a regex which handles whitespaces .

This is the best I can do.

I think you misunderstood, i know the REGEX very well, but the thing is the FIND REPLACE window

I need to create a FIND REPLACE Window from which i can customize my FIND and REPLACES

I need to create my own FIND REPLACE WINDOW for text files

Here is the attached text file

My requirement is to open the ss.txt in the editor and FIND REPLACE the text

Please check the attached image

In "FIND REF" button the text <ref>(.*?)</ref> have to be founded one by one and In the "APPLY-STYLE" button <refss>(.*?)</refs> should be replaced

It should be carried one by one

If the user clicks FIND REF, it should find first <ref>(.*?)</ref> and if the user clicks "APPLY-STYLE" button <refss>(.*?)</refs> should be replaced, if the user clicks FIND REF, without clicking APPLY-STYLE, it should not replace, instead of replacing it should find the next <ref>(.*?)</ref>

Sorry for my bad English, hope u guys understood my requirement

HI sathish,

from what I have understood : You want to selectively ensure the replacement values.

My question :

Why do you want to create a GUI text editor when the same task can be done using

1: Sanitize the file by stripping all unwanted linefeeds

2: Ensure that each line contains exactly one entry

then reading the line displaying the line and then going ahead with the logic of stingreplace. The output would be stored in a secondary file.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Deltarocked.

[EDIT]

between two post of yours there should be someone elses post . otherwise its considered *Bumping* and I think its against the rules of the forum.

Consider using the *edit* like I have done in this post

Thanks for your kind reply

The need for these type of GUI text editor (With Find REPLACE Capabality) is follows:

This tool is going to be used by my staffs (Non - Software), they need to check the replacements one by one as it happens,

And also this will be a new and challenging concept for me to develop,

I need to know, whether this is possible to create like this, if so please guide me,

Thanks & Regards

help needed

Thanks for the reply,

I gone through that,

That is quite different from my need, it uses the host text editor's FIND REPLACE,

But the thing i am asking is, to create a FIND REPLACE Dialog, in our own text editor,

Kindly suggest me is it possible

Thanks in Advance

yes it is possible.

I was hoping that by now you might have read my previous posts carefully and would have completed your task. but it seems to me you are looking for someone who will code it for you.

the answer for your query lies in my previous post - #7.

How did you create your text editor? Is it an AutoIt-script with GUICtrlCreateEdit? Create a simple GUI with the input window and FIND / NEXT buttons. Then read the text, get the current selection and begin your search with the selection end as the offset . Select the next occurence and scroll it into the viewport.
