Find and Replace Code in PowerApps

A feature to find and replace code in PowerApps would be very useful. This is a feature that I have seen in every IDE that I have worked with. This way, when code corrupts, "_1" at the end of form values, a simple find and replace would solve the problem. No more painstakingly clicking on every data field, navigating to the correct Propery, and replacing what needs to be replaced manually.

This would be a very useful tool when a column in a datasource is renamed. Needing to navigate through all of the places in your app where that data field is referenced can be difficult and time consuming.

This issue is even more important than highlighting matching brackets in the enhanced toolbar. I kid. But seriously, please come up with a way to do this.

 

On a higher level, if PowerApps is to be a full scale solution it is necessarily going require a lot of code. PA developers have to be able to manage large amounts of code efficiently. Find/replace is one of many issues that need to be addressed to this end.

Such basic functionality should've existed in the beginning.  Can't believe it's still missing.

😁

 

Without this and a code viewer a lot of simple task are painstaking and timeconsuming.

 

Thank you, very much.

can you please add a function to search around the whole app and not only within the selected item (& its attribute)?

 

I have to change a column-reference which is used as ID within the complete app in different items and its different attributes.

 

my task:

change from sharepoint list "Title" to column "users-personal-id"
