Where can I get a search/replace component for either a tmemo or a tedit window. It should work with Delphi 1.0 and 3.0. Alternatively, where can I get a unit or source code that can do search and replace. Something along the lines of the search/replace function that came with TEditWindow of (Borland Pascal 7.0) Object Windows.

   I think it's a good starting point. It's a descendant component from TRichEdit that have those     (and  others) functionalities. Give it a try, it's freeware:

   If it helps, tell me so I can place this comment as an answer.

Make your own !!!

Use the TMemo.Text property which gives you a String representation of the memo contents.

Make a function does smth. like this:

repeat
b := POS(FINDTHISTEXT, MyMemo.Text)
if b<>-1 then MyMemo.text := Copy(MyMemo.Text,1,b)+ReplaceWithThisText+Copy(Mymemo.Text,b+1,Length(MyMemo.Text);
until b=-1;

I do not guarantee that the above code works, it's just an example.

A reasonable reply, but the Delphi help files have an even better answer. However both the help files and KE don't explain the most important thing about a search-how to "find next"

Itamar's comment on the other hand was exactly what I was looking for. I downloaded the component in his comment, popped it in and was done. I would give Itamar an A if I could figure out how.

For others reading this thread: contact ameeder@dds.nl for further information about this component.
