I'm just loving Apollo. This morning I built a quick regex tester. It only does global style matches, but it is a good first draft. Download it by clicking the Download link below.

In the next version I'll switch to using highlight on the original text instead of a dump of matches. I'll also let you try out replacements as well.

Enjoy my lovely design skills. The code is below for those who are curious.

results.text = '';

if(regexStr == '' || bodyStr == '') { mx.controls.Alert.show("Please enter a regex and a body."); return; }

var regexOb:RegExp = new RegExp(regexStr,"g"); var matches:Array = bodyStr.match(regexOb);

if(matches != null && matches.length > 0) { for(var i=0; i < matches.length; i++) { results.text += matches[i] + "\n"; } } } ]]> </mx:Script>
