Replace

screenshot-replace.jpg

The purpose of the Replace subpage is to provide global search and replace functionality.


Fields

Search For

The string to search for to be replaced.

Replace With

The string to replace the match with.

Match Case

If checked, matches the Search For text by matching character for character, including case.

Whole Word Only

If checked, matches of Search For text cannot be substring of another word or identifier. This is defined as the character before and the character after the matched string are not characters that are valid characters for a PowerBuilder identifier or variable.

Ignore Comments

If checked, ignores matches of Search For text that are found in comments. Excluding matches contained in comments slows the search, as the context of each match has to be evaluated with respect to comments.

Ignore Quotes

If checked, ignores matches of Search For text that are found in quotes. Excluding matches contained in quotes slows the search, as the context of each match has to be evaluated with respect to quotes.

Scripts & Variables

Search and replace is done against scripts and variable declaration portions.

DataWindow SQL

Search and replace is done against SQL in DataWindows. If a replace is required, the resultant SQL will be stored in the DataWindow in syntax format, regardless of whether it was in graphical format before.

Universal

Extreme caution is advised when using this option. Developers without extensive knowledge of object internals are discouraged from using this option. This will search and replace through all portions of all objects.
