editor bug

Jump to solution

Here's an odd bug that has driven me nuts on a couple occasions- when you search (Ctrl-F) in the Vivado editor, it doesn't find some occurrences of variables.  In the screenshot below, if I search in the forward direction ("find next") it doesn't find the red instance, but finds the two blue ones.  If I search in the reverse direction (find previous), it finds all three.  Can be very confusing.

I see what you claim:  case makes a difference.

Would you please include the file in question (or a piece of it)?

 

That way we can see if we can duplicate the problem

Very odd, I'm also running Win7, Vivado 2016.2.  I see now that it only happens when "match case" is checked.. Did you try that?

no,

 

I did not.

 

Note that the file you posted does not match (exactly) the screen shot in your original post (in the file the line is commented out so I un-commented it).

Correct, I was in the process of editing when I discovered the issue (though I've seen it in the past).  The edited version behaves the same way.  And the "Highlight" option shows the same effect.  Here are two screen grabs, one with Match Case On and one with it off:

Thanks for looking into it.

Re: editor bug

OK!  Thanks for verifying, maybe it can be addressed in some future revision.  I've had some deep head-scratching sessions where I have some variable that is never assigned a value (apparently), only to find that the search function has failed me.  Now at least I know that I can turn off "match case" when in doubt.

 

Thanks,

 

Rick
