Replace only a selection of the find results

Service Studio
On our radar
It would be nice to be able to choose several (not necessarily all) results of a Find, and replace only the selected ones

That would be indeed very useful!

Merged this idea with 'Replace single usages OR, select usages to replace in Usages results dialog.' (created on 06 Apr 2018 13:32:15 by Albert Swart)

Hi Outsystems Dev Team,

Replace all usages has been a very handy tool recently.

In using it, i did find that being able to selectively replace a usage might be helpful.

I.e. Right-click on an usage in the Usages dialog and choose to replace it, or even a column in which on can select which usages to ignore via a tickbox or some such.

I recently cloned/copied an application and thought that it might be a bit easier to replace things step by step, rather than all at once.

Thanks 

Albert

Low hanging fruit interface suggestion: when you select one or more result rows, change button to "Replace selected usages"

Merged this idea with 'When we search inside SS we should be able to remove items from the Result and then Replace all usages in the result' (created on 03 Feb 2014 10:37:25 by Romeu Azevedo)
When we search inside SS for example for a word 'Description' and we only want to change that in the labels, we should be able to remove items from the Search Result and then Replace all usages in the result.

Hi Romeu,

Agree, the Search feature needs to be updated. It still has the same features from quite some SS versions now...
I would like some Search related ideas were implemented....
Your idea is about use some kind of filter in the search results. This idea is about having more then one tab of results/finding usages. They complement each other and should both be implemented.

Cheers,
JA

Hey Romeu,

Thanks for your idea, completely agree with the use case1

The way we see this is not actually "removing find results" to replace them all, but rather being able to replace just a subset of the results.

There is already an ideia for this, and I'll merge them.

Keep the ideas coming ;)
