public interface IFindReplaceTarget
The two main methods are
replaceSelection. The target does not provide any way to
modify the content other than replacing the selection.
In order to provide backward compatibility for clients of
IFindReplaceTarget, extension interfaces are used as a means
of evolution. The following extension interfaces exist:
IFindReplaceTargetExtensionsince version 2.0 introducing the notion of find/replace session and of a find/replace scope. In additions, in allows clients to replace all occurrences of a given find query.
IFindReplaceTargetExtension3since version 3.0 allowing clients to specify search queries as regular expressions.
Clients of a
IFindReplaceTarget that also implements the
IFindReplaceTargetExtension have to indicate the start of a find/replace
session before using the target and to indicate the end of the session when the
target is no longer used.
