Small question:

I'm marking the searchresults, but how do I remove them?
This is how I mark them:
Dim _findnext As FindReplaceOptions = New FindReplaceOptions
_findnext.FindText = txt_search.Text

.SelectedView.FindReplace.MarkAll(_findnext)
How do I count them and remove them?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Radjesh,

The MarkAll() method returns a FindReplaceResultSet that tells you how many and where the marks were added.

For marks, a Document.SpanIndicatorLayers layer is added with key SpanIndicatorLayer.FindResultKey. You can look at that to clear them or remove individual ones. The Document.FindReplace.ClearSpanIndicatorMarks() method can also be used to clear them.

Hi,

I already tried to use The Document.FindReplace.ClearSpanIndicatorMarks(), but nothing happens. The markers are still there.
Also tried to count them:

For Each xsyn As SyntaxEditor In document_tab.SelectedTab.AttachedControl.Controls
   With xsyn
      MsgBox(.Document.SpanIndicatorLayers.Count.ToString)  ' result = 0, but 2 are marked
   End With
Next

Thanks. I created a ticket and included my test-editor. Hope you see what I'm doing wrong.

Sorry the overload of MarkAll you use will create bookmark indicators, which are line indicators and not span indicators. Thus that method I suggested won't work unless you are marking with span indicators (another overload lets you do that).

To remove the bookmarks, you can do this:
SyntaxEditor1.Document.LineIndicators.Clear()
