Highlight search results automatically


#1

Hello everyone
I am completely new to atom text editor and I am learning about regular expressions
After pressing Ctrl + F and click on “Regex” icon … I typed some patterns but to get the results I have to press enter
How can I get the results at once while typing the search box?

The find-and-replace package may not have that capability. If you’re trying to learn regular expressions, an online tool like regex101.com would be a lot more useful to you than a text editor’s find function.

Thanks a lot for reply.
What made me ask about that is that I watched a video on YouTube that the instructor just types and the results appears at once after each entry. I know about regex101.com but I hope to find a way in the text editor itself
This feature is already there in sublime text editor …so I thought it would be existing

Unless you tell me what video it is, I have no way of finding it from the information you have given.

I don’t remember exactly but it is in this series

Please work harder for your answer.
Provide info that makes it easy as possible to help you.

EDIT:
I see no issue with automatically triggering of the search field:
