PFC Datawindow Find and Replace Service

The find and replace service implements the ability to allow users to search for specific
data in a datawindow columns, and optionally replace the data with a target string. It includes the following features:

  • Display a pre-built dialog allowing the user to search for values
  • Display a pre-built dialog providing the user with find and replace capability
  • Find the row containing a specified string within a specified column
  • Replace text in a found row/column
  • Special support for richtext presentation style datawindows

How come nothing happens when I press the SEARCH toolbar item?

To enable menu search functionality, the DataWindow must have its Find service enabled. . This is typically done in the Constructor event.
