All --

Please see my email below to the T4 Editor folks at Tangible.

This is regarding a possible find-and-replace-bug in the T4 Editor.

Have you seen this at all?

Subject: T4 Editor, bug, find and replace does not work

Tangible --

Please help.

Regarding the free evaluation edition, at this link...

http://t4-editor.tangible-engineering.com/Readme_FMT.htm

...the find-and-replace functionality does not seem to work at all in the VS.NET 2008 Standard IDE.

If I open with >OpenWith, >SourceCodeTextEditor, then find-and-replace does work.

If I open with >OpenWith, >EditorForT4TextTemplates, then find-and-replace does not work.

Is this a bug?

Is it fixed in the pay-for version?

Please advise.

Thank you.

Current version of the Tangible T4 editor replaces the Visual Studio editor, so the standard find and replace dialogs don't work in it. It does provide a comparable find and replace dialog which you can open by pressing Ctrl+F when editing a .tt file. Not ideal, but it works. I don't think there would be a difference between free and pro version when it comes to find and replace functionality.

I appreciate the reply.

That does not work.

Or, it is severely limited.

Or, I am missing something.

That does not replace-all in multiple open TT files.

Am I missing something?

Please advise.

Thank you.

This is an update regarding the thread above.

Per Tangible, it works only on 1 file at a time -- it does not work on multiple TT files at the same time.

See below for details.

(Just for the record, I still think the T4 Editor from Tangible is a VERY good tool and I recommend it highly, regardless of the issue at hand.)

Not so bad, now that I know how it works.

 

Thank you for the reply.

Hi Mark,

yes it only replaces in one file i am sorry.

Regarding multi-file replace it will come in a vs2010 version soon.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Tim
