Search and Replace in multiple files Add-in for Visual C++ 6.0
  • Download add-in DLL - 22 Kb
  • Download source project - 60 Kb
  • Sample Image - replaceinfiles.gif

    I find this add-in very useful for any Visual C++ programmer. I also included source code for you to modify and improve.

    The add-in searches for the word you supply and replaces it in all the files in the selected directory and it's subfolders.

    After downloading the demo project enter Visual C++ 6.0 IDE and right-click on the toolbar and choose Customize. Click on the AddIns and Macro Files Tab and browse to the Replace.dll file in the Release directory of your project..


  • Download AddIn - 24 Kb

    Version 1.2 includes lots of bug fixes and improvements (Ed. - no source code was provided, so the source code provided here is for version 1.0)

    The addin searches for the word you supply and replaces it in all the files in the selected directory and it's subfolders, having the extension you select or enter in the Files type/types combo box.
