Find and Replace is broken

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

If I open a Project in SSMS 2008, open Find and Replace, type in the name of a stored procedure, select Look in Current Project and click Find Next, F&R will open all the files in the project and report "...specified text was not found". If I click Find Next again it will then find the stored procedure.

How can I fix this?

Change case using Find & Replace dialog box

Patch for VS 2010 Find and Replace Dialog Growing

One of the top reported Microsoft Connect issues with VS 2010 has been an issue with the Find and Replace dialog - which grows 16px each time you use it (which is pretty annoying). The Visual Studio team recently released a patch that fixes this issue. You can download and apply it here. Hope this helps, Scott P.S. A few people reported issues installing the patch if they had an older version of the Silverlight 4 tools installed.  If you see an error message that says you need an update to Visual Studio to support Silverlight 4, you can fix it by installing the latest Silverlight 4 tools release.

Cancel multiple WFs at once & global list find & replace

We have a number of products in our company, and a need for an email alert for various reasons for each product. Thus, I have a SP list where each list item has a drop-dead date, plus the manager's name and manager's email address as well as a note as to what needs to be done. When a new item is created, or a list item is changed, a workflow is initiated. Remember, each single product associated with a manager can have dozens of these email alert list items with differing drop-dead dates. The workflow is designed to send alerts out at stated intervals before the drop-dead date. The problem is that the manager in charge of a given product can and does change. What I have to do now is to open each of the items that pertain to that manager, stop the existing workflow, change the manager's name and email address in the item, then save it (thus starting a new workflow). This can get tedious when a single product can have several dozen list items corresponding to several dozen drop-dead dates. I would like to be able to filter the list, kill all the workflows that are connected to each item in the filtered list, change the manager name and email using the Datasheet facility, then save. At that point, X new workflows would start where X is the number of list items in the filtered list. 1. Is that possible (I doubt it) in our native SP 2007? 2. Does anyone

find and replace on regexp in selected text



I work in SQL Server Management Studio 9.00.1399.00

I have this text:


I search this regexp:

^{[^ ,]+}
and replace with this one:

o\.\1 = t\.\1

As result I expect this:

o.Column1 = t.Column1,
o.Column2 = t.Column2,
o.Column3 = t.Column3
Replace works fine when I search in Current Document. But it does not work in Selection. When I apply search and replace to selection, I get this result:

o. = t.,
o. = t.umn3
Is there any fix? Regexp never worked fine in SSMS, but usually I managed to find work around. Not this time.

Thank you,



regexp to find and replace strings in UNIX


I currently use UltraEdit to edit my files, which it has an option to do a search and replace in all files in a directory. In my directory I have files that I need to replace stuff in all of them.

Replace: $_POST['SomeVariableThatIsUnknown']
With: fetchValue($_POST, 'SomeVariableThatIsUnknown')


The SomeVariableThatIsUnknown variable could include numbers or other special characters (really anything other than ' or ]). Can someone help me with the REGEXP to find these and then one to replace them?

Find (also "find and replace") not working in Visual Studio



  I am an senior .net developer. My Visual Studio 2005 was working properly for several months. I started on a new laptop and everything was fine. Suddenly (due to a windows update or something), the find (also the find and replace) is not working. When I do Ctl+F (or Edit-Find) or(Edit menu-find and replace) nothing happens. I see my visual studio going out of focus (similar to what happens if another window takes modal position).

I made sure that service pack 1 is installed. 

I repaired/re-installed and did other things to fix this problem but still no resolution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  


Find & Replace - Regular Expressions, what's wrong here?



Not really a huge concern, just a minor 'bout of "WTF?".

so [A-Z] matches any 1 character that is between capital a and capital z. 

[^A-Z] is matches any 1 character ths is NOT between captial a and captial z

\ is the escape character for matching literals.

CREATE TABLE X (col1 int, col2 nvarchar(15), test bit) ON primary

Find String:  {(\([^0-9]|,|\)[^,])}

REplace String: \1\n

However the \([^0-9] doesn't find anything in the string.  now frankly, (c seems to match the \([^0-9] because the first literal is a ( and the following character is NOT beween 0 and 9, yet the IDE says with the above set up, 2 matches.  Why? 

I proceed to try and do just "\([A_Z]" and just "\([0-9]" as the find string, and their correlated ^ versions and none of them detected any matches in the file containing that create table statement.  When I remove the \( from the string, it suddenly works.  what up with that?

Can I replace the EntityObject as base-class in Entity Designer 3.5 sp1?


I'm using EF3.5sp1 for a project, and I've been working around many of its problems... as such, my entity partial classes have a lot of logic in them for change-tracking and whatnot.  Obviously, I'd like to factor this logic out into a common base class, but of course all my objects must derive from EntityObject.  Is it possible to tell them to derive from some class of my own invention (which would actually likely derive from EntityObject themselves)?

I'd rather avoid editing the EDMX file unless the changes will be safe on entity-model-update, since I'm still making changes to the database schema in this early state of my project.


Also, is there any good workaround for the fact that the change isn't tracked when you change EntityReference.EntityKey?

Using loginName to find ADInfo from an outside class



I wrote a class to pull adinfo and for the life of me I can't seem to figure

out why it says "Invalid Login Name" no matter what I type in. If I leave

it blank it seems to work properly but it doesn't seem to be actually searching

the AD. I'll drop the whole class here, it's being initiated by a button click

on an outside form.


Thanks in Advance for any help Offered,

LDAP - Can't find server


Hey people,

I would like to get a persons name from their username - a common query on forums i know, but i haven't managed to get mine working yet and any help would be appreciated.

I currently have this code that I found here: http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?t=612655 (Thanks Chris128)

I have adapted it from VB into VB.net. The page renders but when i enter my username into the Username textBox and hit the submit button (Which calls IsUser) I just get "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted." I have tried lots of other code but I always get this response...

If anyone can help by posting links to a tutorial or another post for code that they know works, i will give it a go.
