So you want someone to just write a search and replace function for you? I think you'd better hit the books a little harder.

For "Find" you should add some action listener to your button, and move code after d2.show() in actionPerformed method of that listener. Then it might work...

In your "Replace" you should also display a dialog to let user specify what to replace with what.
After search and replace string are entered by user, again you have to handle action event from "Find and Replace" button on dialog. When the button is pressed, you can get String from your TextArea using getText method. In this string, using indexOf method of String class you can locate a substring to replace and then replace it using replaceRange method of TextArea.

I hope that this helps you.

Btw, this information is for free :o)

Good luck,
    Ntr:)
