Select Edit»Find and Replace and click the Find button in the Find dialog box or select Edit»Show Search Results to display this window.
Use this window to display all instances of objects or text that you search for and replace them with other objects or text. Use the keyboard shortcuts listed in the window to find the next <Ctrl-G> or previous <Ctrl-Shift-G> result.
|Note The Search Results Window appears only if LabVIEW finds more than one object during a search. If LabVIEW finds only one object, LabVIEW highlights the object on the front panel window or block diagram window.|
For hidden text, all objects that LabVIEW needs to display the text become visible temporarily as dimmed objects. If you click the mouse or press a key, the objects become hidden again.
|Note If you delete an object or VI that is part of a search result, LabVIEW disables that entry in the Search Results window. However, modifying text does not update the search results. Therefore, you might highlight a text search result that no longer matches the search criteria. In that case, perform a new search to update the Search Results window.|
This window includes the following components:
|Note A strikeout icon appears next to an entry in the Search Results list if LabVIEW cannot replace that instance. For example, you cannot replace the text in a Property Node or an Invoke Node. You also cannot replace text in running VIs. If you click the Replace All or Replace Selected buttons, LabVIEW attempts to replace all instances except those marked with a strikeout icon.|
