Easy FindDialog question

I've got a TFindDialog and a TReplaceDialog control. Both have an OnFind event on which I'm trying to use the following code:

procedure TfrmPrincipal.FindDialogFind(Sender: TObject);
var
  VentanaHija: TfrmVentanaHija; FoundAt: LongInt;
  StartPos, ToEnd, z: integer; TipoBusqueda: TSearchTypes;
  xText: string;
begin
  VentanaHija := ActiveMDIChild as TfrmVentanaHija;
  FoundAt := -1;

 {Determinar el tipo de búsqueda}
  if frWholeWord in FindDialog.Options then
    TipoBusqueda := TipoBusqueda + [stWholeWord];
  if frMatchCase in FindDialog.Options then
    TipoBusqueda := TipoBusqueda + [stMatchCase];

  with VentanaHija.reManuscrito do begin

    if frDown in FindDialog.Options then begin  //BUSQUEDA PARA ABAJO
      if SelLength <> 0 then   //si hay una palabra o frase seleccionada
        StartPos := SelStart + SelLength
      else
        StartPos := 0;   //en caso contrario, comenzar desde el principio

      ToEnd := Length(Text) - StartPos;  //ToEnd es la distancia entre StarPos y el final del texto

      FoundAt := FindText(FindDialog.FindText, StartPos, ToEnd, TipoBusqueda);
    end //end if
    else begin  //BUSQUEDA PARA ARRIBA
      if SelLength <> 0 then   //si hay una palabra o frase seleccionada
        StartPos := SelStart - 1
      else
        StartPos := SelStart;   //en caso contrario, comenzar desde el principio

      for z := 0 to StartPos do begin
        xText := Copy(Text,StartPos - z,Length(FindDialog.FindText));
        if FindDialog.FindText = xText then begin
          FoundAt := StartPos - z - 1; break; end; //end if
      end; //end for
    end; //end else

    if FoundAt <> -1 then
    begin
      SetFocus;
      SelStart := FoundAt;
      SelLength := Length(FindDialog.FindText);
    end //end if
    else begin
      MessageDlg('No se encontraron más equivalencias', mtInformation, [mbOK], 0);
      SelLength := 0;
    end; //end else
  end; //end with
end;


The thing is that this code obviously works only for the FindDialog as I refer to it's properties throughout the code. But how can I use the same code for both TFindDialog's OnFind event, and TReplaceDialog OnFind event?

I tried something like this but doesn't seem to work.

  if Sender is TFindDialog then
    Dialog := Sender as TFindDialog
  else if Sender is TReplaceDialog then
    Dialog := Sender as TReplaceDialog;

Thanks in advance.

as TReplaceDialog descends from TFindDialog, you can safely cast sender as a TFindDialog in both cases.

procedure TfrmPrincipal.FindDialogFind(Sender: TObject);
var
  VentanaHija: TfrmVentanaHija; FoundAt: LongInt;
  StartPos, ToEnd, z: integer; TipoBusqueda: TSearchTypes;
  xText: string;
begin
  with sender as TFindDialog do
begin
  VentanaHija := ActiveMDIChild as TfrmVentanaHija;
  FoundAt := -1;

 {Determinar el tipo de búsqueda}
  if frWholeWord in Options then
    TipoBusqueda := TipoBusqueda + [stWholeWord];
  if frMatchCase in Options then
    TipoBusqueda := TipoBusqueda + [stMatchCase];

  with VentanaHija.reManuscrito do begin

    if frDown in Options then begin  //BUSQUEDA PARA ABAJO
      if SelLength <> 0 then   //si hay una palabra o frase seleccionada
        StartPos := SelStart + SelLength
      else
        StartPos := 0;   //en caso contrario, comenzar desde el principio

      ToEnd := Length(Text) - StartPos;  //ToEnd es la distancia entre StarPos y el final del texto

      FoundAt := FindText(FindText, StartPos, ToEnd, TipoBusqueda);
    end //end if
    else begin  //BUSQUEDA PARA ARRIBA
      if SelLength <> 0 then   //si hay una palabra o frase seleccionada
        StartPos := SelStart - 1
      else
        StartPos := SelStart;   //en caso contrario, comenzar desde el principio

      for z := 0 to StartPos do begin
        xText := Copy(Text,StartPos - z,Length(FindText));
        if FindText = xText then begin
          FoundAt := StartPos - z - 1; break; end; //end if
      end; //end for
    end; //end else

    if FoundAt <> -1 then
    begin
      SetFocus;
      SelStart := FoundAt;
      SelLength := Length(FindText);
    end //end if
    else begin
      MessageDlg('No se encontraron más equivalencias', mtInformation, [mbOK], 0);
      SelLength := 0;
    end; //end else
  end; //end with
end; // end do
end;

I didnt' use the code you provided but you gave me a great idea, so thanks.

ah! the error with your code is that as I also use:
with VentanaHija.reManuscrito do begin

when FindText is called (refering to FindDialog.FindText -the text to finf-) it interprets it as the reManuscrito.FindText method.

though thanks a lot! and you got the points!
