Does Actipro support tagged expressions?

1.  Use the following text:

String blah = 'sdfsdf';

2.  Find: '([^']*)'

3.  Replace: @"\1"

I expect the text to change to:

String blah = @"sdfsdf";


...or is there some other way to denote tagged expressions on the replace?  I've seen other places use ^.

Oh, it uses the form $1 like Javascript.  Is there a way to change this form?

Hi Jason,

The "Regular Expression Guide / Language Elements" documentation topic has a "Substutions" section that talks about the supported options.  Sorry you cannot change them however you could allow the user to enter whatever format you want to support and then convert that to our supported format.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.0) was released 4 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
