Method Detail

findAndSelect

int findAndSelect(int offset,
                  
String findString,
                  boolean searchForward,
                  boolean caseSensitive,
                  boolean wholeWord,
                  boolean regExSearch)
Searches for a string starting at the given offset and using the specified search directives. If a string has been found it is selected and its start offset is returned. If regExSearch is true the findString is interpreted as a regular expression.

Parameters:
offset - the offset at which searching starts
findString - the specification of what should be found
searchForward - true searches forward, false backwards
caseSensitive - true performs a case sensitive search, false an insensitive search
wholeWord - if true only occurrences are reported in which the findString stands as a word by itself. Must not be used in combination with regExSearch.
regExSearch - if true findString represents a regular expression Must not be used in combination with wholeWord.
Returns:
the position of the specified string, or -1 if the string has not been found
Throws:
PatternSyntaxException - if regExSearch is true and findString is an invalid regular expression

replaceSelection

void replaceSelection(
String text,
                      boolean regExReplace)
Replaces the currently selected range of characters with the given text. If regExReplace is true the text is interpreted as a regular expression that is used to process the selected text in order to produce the actual replacement of the selected text.

This target must be editable. Otherwise nothing happens.

Parameters:
text - the specification of the substitution text
regExReplace - if true text represents a regular expression
Throws:
IllegalStateException - in case of regular expressions, this call is not preceded by a call to findAndSelect
PatternSyntaxException - if regExReplace is true and text is an invalid regular expression
