How do I search and replace case sensitive in Web IDE Full-Stack?

Hi,

I am not sure, if this is a dumb question, but how do I search (and replace) case sensitive in Web IDE Full-Stack? Regardless of the settings of the available buttons "Match whole word" and "Use regular expression" the results list always contains matches for upper and lower case characters.

Best regards,

Christian.

    Hi Christian,

    clicking the "Aa" button below the search field should grant you case sensitive searches. As you can see in the screenshot the function parameter "opaTest" is not highlighted when searching for uppercase "Opa". To replace the search results, just click on the "+"-Button.

    • Hi Christian,

      I had the feeling that this answer was too easy. I wasn't able to perform case sensitive searches either. It seems to me that the Web IDE sets the \i-Flag of the regular expression internally, which causes the case insensitivity. Normally the search for the regexp "RootPath" should be case sensitive:

    Hi Christian,

    Case sensitive search is supported when searching a specific file (focus on a file open in a tab and then MENU > Search > Find | Find and Replace). Use the Aa button in the search dialog for this.

    Case sensitive search is not supported when searching using the search pane, e.g. searching the workspace/project/multiple files/...This is true even when using RegEx - it will return all results.

    More information is available in the SAP Web IDE Full-Stack documentation.

    For product suggestion, you're welcome to use the SAP Web IDE influence page.
