#1 find / highlight all found entries

Posted by: StefanK | Date: 01/24/2007 10:12 | IP: IP Logged

Hi,

i like your program very much, but there's one little thing i miss. grinning smiley

It's a function like in Mozilla Firefox, when you press strg+f (to search), put in the expression you are searching for, and then HIGHLIGHT all entries in the whole website.

Is there a simple possibility to do this with PSPad?

Would be very nice.

greetings
Stefan

Your are almost right ...
Press ctrl+f, type what to find and then click on the list button

Hi,

i know this "list" button , but that's not the point.

i need to highlight all found entries in the textfile, not in a list where i see only the entries where the search expression.

with a highlight function you can find the essential information around the search expression in textfiles very fast.

i thought it would be not such a problem to implement such a little feature...

it would be very nice to see this in a feature version of pspad!

greetings
Stefan

This is much like one of the Google toolbar's features. I agree that this can be very useful sometimes.

(Temporary) Highlighting search results is a great feature that I really miss in PSPAD.

I would also appreciate this feature. In Notepad++ it's called smart highlighting: doubleclicking a word highlights all corresponding matches.

I definately second this too!

I have been using EditPad Pro for about 1,5 years before I made the jump to PSPad, and although I think PSPad is the better editor, I really miss EditPad Pro's highlight function.

See a screenshot here:
www.regular-expressions.info

(The screenshots shows highlights for a regex, but if you'd type "$_GET" it would hightlight all occurances of "$_GET")

Incoporate this style of highlighting into PSPad, and I'll be just about ready to MARRY this editor!!

Yes, that's a very good and needed feature.
I'd love to see it in PSPad, too. smiling smiley

It's very useful when you're coding.

You can select a word, and all the same words in the file will be highlighted automatically.

If you're coding, then you can see where the selected word is used or modified. That's a very useful feature.

Jan, please consider to implement it grinning smiley
