For knowing more about Search_xxx keys have a look here: Special keys for searched rules

The Control Center software opens this window during the Add rule/section generation, for a searched rule. It gives access to the most common used function keys. If nothing out of this window is needed simply click on cancel.


 Depending upon the search mode, some fields are not available to be used.


StoreNextWordToVariable The function will read the text behind the searched item into an ELP variable. Enter a variable name: #MyVariableName#. It is recommended to initialise the variable in the rule GLOBAL with the key Variable.Optional you may enter the minimum length of the information: #MyVariableName#;Length
StoreNextWordToIntVariable Same as above, but information is supposed to be a valid number, otherwise 0 is stored.
Add Text (Add_Binary) Any text which is added behind the searched text.
Insert text (Insert_Binary)

Any text which is added in front of the searched text

Replace text (Replace_Binary) The searched term is completely replaced by any text. Be careful using option as you might get very quick into an endless operation mode. Never use in the replaced term the previously searched term. If this is the case you need to modify the replacement a little. For example for Binary searched items, add somewhere within the replaced matching text \x1B&a+0H which is a kind of do nothing printer statement, but mismatch the searched and inserted terms.
Evaluate trigger section If all trigger conditions of the named rule are true, the rule is performed as well, right at the position the searched item was found. This could be very early in the process especially before other rules may apply. The rules must already exist!
Evaluate trigger section after .. Same as above, but performed some bytes later in the reading process, after StoreNextWordTo.... function did successfully take place.
Increase counter If you like to count items or calculate things, here is the place, just enter a variable name and maybe the count operation
Speed up, analyse no further keys This key saves quite some process time. Executing this rule, ELP will not evaluate any other keys than listed in the "Manipulate searched expressions" key list. No ELP_Command, nor Archive key nothing!
Search this item only once The searched item will be only searched once per data stream.
Erase the found and opt. ... the searched term expression will be erased form the data stream. If StoreNextWordTo... key is used in that rule, the stored text is also erased from the print data.
