    Property Value

    SearchDialog object containing the search dialog

    The search has these qualifications:

    • This method only searches the cells in the data area, not the headers.
    • This method only checks against the formatted string -- the Text in the cell, not the Value.
    • This method only searches the specified cells in one sheet.
    • All the cells that contain data that can be represented as a string by the Text property of that cell are searched and that includes hidden and locked cells.
    • Cell notes and cell tags are not part of the search.

    This property is available at run time only.

    This example sets up the search dialog.
    fpSpread1.SearchDialog.AlternateSearch = true; 
    fpSpread1.SearchDialog.CaseSensitive = false; 
    fpSpread1.SearchDialog.ExactMatch = false;  
    fpSpread1.SearchDialog.SearchString = "155"; 
    fpSpread1.SearchDialog.SheetIndex = 0; 
    fpSpread1.SearchDialog.StartColumnIndex = 0; 
    fpSpread1.SearchDialog.StartRowIndex = 0; 
    fpSpread1.SearchDialog.UseWildcards = false;  
    FpSpread1.SearchDialog.AlternateSearch = True 
    FpSpread1.SearchDialog.CaseSensitive = False
