VB6 - Search and replace function

Wilder1626 asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-17

I have a form with 3 MSHFlexgrid. Each grid are populated.

On the side, i have  2 combobox, one to select what MSHFlexgrid i want to search in, the second if the header column name.

Then, i have the Search value I want to search for and then, the replace Textbox with what i want to replace the value with.

So far, i was using this below code, but this is only for hard coded MSHFlexgrid and column.

I can i update it to adjust based on the the 2 combobox

search value
Private Sub replace_value_Click()
    Dim i As Long
    Dim LastRow As Long
    Dim Found As Boolean

    If Len(Trim(search.Text)) = 0 Then Exit Sub

    For i = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
        If search.Text = Mid(MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 2), 1, Len(Trim(search.Text))) Then
            LastRow = i
            Found = True

            If Found = True Then
                MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 2) = replace.Text
                Exit Sub

            End If
        End If

End Sub
