Using the new DALLAS search function(s) ( V1.0 ) Atan


Turn On/Off the new features by using this toggle switch:


The Dialog expands and shows more infos and features now:



Now you are able to search things inside your script by mouse click or by entering a text.

If there will be a hit all accurances will be highlighted. See this simple example:


We entered the word 'taken' inside the editbox, unchecked 'Exact' and as we pressed 'Find text' Button we see that we got one hit.

The scriptline which contains that word was highlighted.


It's a pain always if DALLAS tells us that one or more scriptlines contain an 'Unknown Object' which must be changed.

This example here shows how to find such line(s) very easily:


The script opens automatically and shows such line(s).

Inside new D3Edit Versions DALLAS is searching such errors before saving and highlights them.


While starting DALLAS some new Listboxes are filled. Mouse left click onto an entry will search this word. This word is entered inside the search field too. The number of hits is shown, all related scripts are expanded and the searched text will be highlighted. Use the scrollbar on the right to navigate through all the scripts.


I.E. it's very easy to find Pathnames and Messages now.


To find User Types Workshop entries just open it, select the User Type and hit 'Search for Value'.

If there is no hit inside the Scripts now and you are pretty sure about, you can delete it from the list now.

Be careful, it's easy to make a mistake here and your script may not work!


One more example :


This new search feature is very useful while scripting. Once you are familiar with it, you won't miss it anymore.

Using it the right way you can save a lot of time during your scripting!
