Using Inline Search
The Inline Search in DevStyle replaces the traditional Eclipse find and replace dialog, providing a search experience that is far more efficient and unintrusive—a tool that won’t interrupt your development workflow.
Also available in CodeMix & Angular IDE.
Select Inline Search Preferences
Inline Search is included automatically when you enable DevStyle; however, you have the ability to enable or disable this feature at any time.
- Go to Window>Preferences>DevStyle>Inline Search.
- Clear the Use the Inline Search checkbox to use the standard Eclipse search or select the checkbox to use the DevStyle search.
Enabling the DevStyle Inline Search
- Click Apply, and then click OK.
Using the Inline Search and Replace
Searching for Text
To use Inline Search, press Ctrl+F within any text editor, and then type the text you wish to search for. All instances of the text are highlighted in the editor and the number of occurrences is displayed. You can use the Next or Previous arrows to navigate the found text. You also have the option to narrow your search using the following options: Case Sensitive, Match Whole Word, and Regular Expression Search.
Inline Search options
If you select a block of text before invoking the Inline Search, the search only applies to the selection. To clear the selection, close the Inline Search or press Ctrl+F from within the editor.
To use the classic Eclipse Find/Replace dialog box, press Ctrl+F from the Inline Search box.
To replace text, click the down-arrow to the left of the Search box to display the Replace options. Type the replacement text, and then select the Replace and Find Next button or the Replace All button.
Use the following key binding reference to quickly search for text across your file and optionally initiate replacements as well.
|Open Classic Find/Replace||Ctrl+F, Ctrl+F|
DevStyle was introduced in MyEclipse CI 2018.8.0 and the 2017 CI 9 release of Webclipse (now CodeMix) and Angular IDE.
