Assuming you want to Cut, Copy, Paste, Search and Replace contents of a RichTextEditor or TextArea control:

1. For Find and Replace functionalities you can use the search, replace methods and Regular Expressions available for Flex String objects.

a) For Cut, Copy & Paste in a RichTextEditor: you can access the selected text thru the selection property which is of type TextRange
b) For Cut, Copy & Paste in a TextArea: you can access the selected text thru selectionBeginIndex and selectionEndIndex properties
c) Once you have the selected text, it is just a matter of doing a combination of the following tasks: Storing the text in a variable, searching for the text, replacing the text, inserting the text inside the existing string.
