How to Replace Text in a single file open in PHP Editor

Select Replace on the main menu of PHP Editor to open Replace Text dialog box.
To find and replace the required text in the current document:

  • Select Replace tab
  • Enter text to search for / replace with. You can enter multiple lines of text if you need to search /replace a block of text. To switch to multiple lines mode please check Multiline search check box.
  • Indicate whether the search should be case-sensitive
  • Select whether the search should include only whole words that match the search text
  • Indicate whether the search text should be treated as a regular expression
  • Define the direction of the search (forward or backward)
  • Define the scope of the search (global or selected text)
  • Define the start point of the search (from cursor or entire scope)
  • If you want to replace only the nearest occurrence of the search text, click OK
  • If you want to replace repeated occurrences of the searched text, mark Prompt on replace check box - you'll be asked each time whether you want to replace the found text
  • If you want to perform a global replace operation, simply click REPLACE ALL once you have entered your text strings.
  • Press Ok button. Alternatively you can press Enter Key in single line search mode or CTRL+Enter in Multiline mode.
Searching results will appear in the Search Results window, by default located in the right-hand bottom of the main PHP IDE window. The example of the replace use is shown here: PHP Editor Search Single file
