Hi Bruce,

Our apologies for the delayed response. It is possible to find and highlight the given text using FindText method. It is also possible to find and highlight text using the FindDialog. I have have attached a
sample
that illustrates this.

Please let me know if this meets your requirements.

Thanks for your patience.

Hi ,

I am facing one problem while copying from the text editor to the Find & Replace dialog while using Keyboard (Ctrl +C , Ctrl+V) option.

1. Highlight the test in text editor.
2. press ctrl + C , the focus( the control) is on the Find replace dialog combo control by default.
3. Press ctrl+ V to paste .

4. Instead of pasting the text on the combo text box, nothing has pasted on that at first time , if i do Ctrl + V next time , it paste the content on the edit control next to previous text selected position .

I am using the version 3.3.0.0 Essential Studio.

Note :: The keyboard copy paste is working in the case of Goto dialog box.

Requires a solution for this.

Thanks & Regds,
Sailesh Kumar

FindText won't find text that comes before the cursor in the editor. Is there a way for it to start searching from the start of the text instead of the current cursor position? Also, can it return to the start of the text after reaching the end of the text?

FindText will start from the beginning if the text it's searching for is occurs on multiple lines. If it only occurs on one line, then it won't start from the beginning again.

Hi Frank,

I apologize for the delayed response. The FindText method does find text occuring before the cursor, under conditions of both multiple lines and single lines. It would be helpful if you let us know the version used, to check the issue further.

Also using the FindText, returns to the start of the EditControl's text once its end has been reached. Please look into the attached sample to verify this.

http://websamples.syncfusion.com/samples/Edit/49059-1/main.htm

Further, using the following FindText method enables one to start searching from the start of the text rather than the current cursor position.

FindText( string text, bool caseSensitive, bool wholeWord, bool searchInHidden, bool searchUp, IParsePoint startPoint )

Thanks for your patience.

Regards ,
Shirley
