Finding and replacing text in a project
JetBrains Rider extends search and replace capability to the entire solution, project, or any directory with its nested hierarchy. Explore search results in the preview tab or in the Find tool window.
To find a piece of text in all files with the specified path
In Settings/Preferences Ctrl+Alt+S, select , or press Ctrl+Shift+F.
In the Find In Path dialog, specify the following options:
Start entering the text. Type the text explicitly, or specify a pattern using a regular expression, or select a previously used piece of text or a pattern from the recent entries' list.
Search scope (solution, project, directory, or custom scope) is customizable. If you select Scope, you can search everywhere or select specific attached directories, scratches and consoles, or files. Also, you can select specific data sources and perform the search only in these data sources.
If you select Directory, you can search in attached directories or attach a directory and search here.
Search options (case sensitivity, whole words, and regular expressions).
Context search options.
The results are displayed in the preview area.
Edit the selected result right in the preview editor as it is a functional editor where actions such as Find Ctrl+F or Find Next F3 are available without leaving the Find in Path window.
While in the preview editor, you can start a new search. Select the text you need and press Ctrl+Shift+F. JetBrains Rider will display the new search results.
Press Enter to open the selected result in the editor.
Click Open in Find Window Ctrl+Enter to see all of the results in the Find tool window.
Replace text in the path
From the main menu, select(Ctrl+Shift+H).
In the Replace In Path dialog, specify the search and replace strings, the search options, and the scope. Type the search and replacement text explicitly, or specify patterns using a regular expression, or select a previously used piece of text or a pattern from the recent history list.
If you specify the search and/or replacement text through a regular expression, use the
$nformat in back references (to refer to a previously found and saved pattern).
To use a backslash character
\in a regular expression, escape the meaningful backslash by inserting three extra backslashes in a preposition:
