Find/Replace Dialogs

Can anyone help me by providing some code for implementing fully functional find and replace dialogs. By that I mean to use options for up down (especially when using find next), match case match word, replace one string at a time or replace all.

I have found some code that goes a long way towards it but does not implement the options fully, and I am having problems doing so. Not sure of copyright so wont post code here but this is url for code found http://www.elementkjournals.com/ddj/9803/ddj9831.htm

Cheers
Chris

ps please don't answer with code snippets and basics that I have allready ;)

Hi

This is a quote from the article (url above):

'You can add some embellishments of your own to our example. In the Find dialog, selecting Up as the search direction resets the search to the beginning of the memo's text. Instead, the search could begin from the current cursor position and find the previous occurrence of the search string. Our replace logic assumes the user is going to replace every occurrence of the search string. Clicking our Replace dialog's Find Next button won't advance to the next occurrence unless the current one is replaced. Instead, replacing strings should be optional as the user searches the entire memo.'

Also the option of Match Whole Word only is not working ie if I set this option and search for tab it finds table and selects the letters tab. Find Next will not search up only down.

Hope this is clear.

Regards
Chris

HI, xpher,
I wrote some time ago FindDialog component for
as you said "full-functional finding".
To use it with TMemo or TRichedit you need only to link to them (in properties tab).
I can send it to you if you want, but print your E-Mail
address here.
If you'll like it new ReplaceDialog component can be written as well.
Sincerely,
Nestorua.

Hi, Chris,
Send you my component TPSIFindDialog.
Place it in the Palette, put TMemo or TRichEdit on the form,
link the TPSIFindDialog with the Memo,
in the OnKeyDown event of the Memo
write the following: TheNameOfTPSIFindDialog.StandardKeyDown(Sender, Key, Shift).
That's all.
Now on the Ctrl+F you can open the FindDialog,
on F3 you can continue the searching.
If you see some errors or kind of wrong behavior,
inform me, please.
Sincerely,
Nestorua.

Hi Nestorua
Got the component (thanks) F3 (find next) does not seem to work. Also as a little aside the idea of minimizing the dialog is a little annoying as it is difficult to restore if want to search something else. But looking at your code is giving me a better understanding which I appreciate.

Hi Nestorua

Tried the new stuff you sent me. Can only get the Find Next to work if I put it in public declaration of your component.

I'm looking at the code to see what is going on and to try a replace aswell. Will be back 2 u as soon as.

Regards
Chris
