Chapter 27. Writing Code in Dreamweaver > Advanced Find and Replace

Advanced Find and Replace

Although the Dreamweaver Find and Replace command doesn’t necessarily have to be used in Code view, sophisticated searching is a feature usually associated with code editing. The Dreamweaver Find and Replace command is a powerful tool that supports regular expressions for searching source code (for the true geeks among us), as well as the ability to construct complex searches using a simple drop-down menu interface (for the rest of us).

Advanced Text Searches

With a basic text search, Dreamweaver lets you search the text elements in an HTML document (that is, the text that is actually visible on the page, as opposed to HTML tags). With advanced text searching, you can limit the search to text elements within, or outside, specific tags. You can specify that the text element be within one tag or multiple tags; you can even require that the enclosing tags have certain attributes. The Advanced Text search option is available through the Search and Replace window. With the window open, from the Search For pop-up menu, select Text (Advanced).
