Result set of Object Search

I tried to search some text in my source codes and the options I set and the given results were not in sync.
The search term was “exc” and only Search source was active.

1.) I chose an Exact Match, case sensitive off, but lines was shown as results like these (pressing F3 in the pop-up window)

–BEGIN
– xmsg_in := int_eszk.get_msg_in (c.incode);
–EXCEPTION

EXCEPTION
WHEN OTHERS THEN

2.) I chose Start with, case sensitive on, but lines was shown as results like these


– Exception változó inicializálása

EXCEPTION
WHEN OTHERS THEN

I think what’s happening is that the object search is working correctly (at least in my tests it was) but when you get to the F4 dialog, it’s not following the search rules as defined in the object search, so when you F3 in the describe window, it might not go to the same line detected by the object search…

John,

So the type of search doesn’t pass to the Search functionality of Editor. Can you give a fix on it before 12.7 will be release?

Thanks,

T.

We do pass along Case Sensitivity, but the editor control which does the search in the describe dialog doesn’t have an option for “Start with” or “exact match”
