The SEARCH menu gives you access to the FIND AND REPLACE TEXT function. This function lets you quickly find code in the program and optionally replace it. To use it:

note: This function searches for program code, not text. You cannot use this function to find text strings (like comments).

Find and Replace Menu Example: [1] Text to Find, [2] Replacement Text, [3] Search Direction, [4] Find Option, [5] Replace Option, [6] Find and Replace Option, [7] Replace all Option

Specify Your Find / Replace Code

  1. Press ENTER in the editor pull-down menu to open the FIND AND REPLACE TEXT menu. Use the cursor arrow keys to move between the fields in the menu.
  2. In the Find field, Type the code you want to search for.
  3. If you want to replace some or all of the found code, type the replacement code in the Replace field.
  4. Use the LEFT and RIGHT cursor arrow keys to choose the search direction. Forward searches the program below the cursor position, Backward searches the program above the cursor position.

After you specify at least the code that you want to search for and the direction you want to search, press the function key for the search mode that you want to use:

Find Code ( F1)

Press F1 to find the search term.

The control searches the program in the specified direction and highlights the first occurrence of the search term. Each time you press F1, the control searches for the next occurrence of the search term, in the search direction that you specified, until it reaches the end of the program.

Replace Code ( F2)

After the search function finds an occurrence of your search term, you can press F2 to replace that code with the contents of the Replace field.

note: If you press F2 with no text in the Replace field, the control deletes that occurrence of your search term.

Find and Replace( F3)

Press F3 instead of F1 to start the find and replace operation. For each occurrence of your search term, press F3 if you want to replace it with the text in the Replace field.

Replace All( F4)

Press F4 to replace all of the search term occurrences in (1) step. You cannot undo this.
