You can use two vfp tools for searching :
-vfp menu/tools/search in sources
-vfp filer.scx ( in vfp tools folder).this can be customized and automatised in a prg
like a com object 'based on a dll)

You can also use ADIR recursive to search a file in any folder/subfolder.
for any kind of text on the screen you can use CTRL+F to fire dialog box search.


Dont rate please.its only for the pleasure to help.Give me only a feed back.
