I'm not sure what you're doing or expecting.

Here I used Ctrl+Shift+F to Find a class name called "carousel-caption" in my current document.

When I click Find All, I see several results in the Search panel.  

When I double click on the first result, the string is highlighted as shown in my screenshot.

Unless I'm missing something, that is the expected behavior in DW CC 2019.

Hi Nancy,

I'm creating an extension of Dreamweaver with JavaScript. dreamweaver.findNext() doesn't work as expected according to Find and replace functions.

I also tried following code with no lucky.

 dreamweaver.setUpComplexFind('<dwquery> \
  <queryparams matchcase="false" ignorewhitespace="false" useregexp="false" wholeword="false" textonly="false" /> \
  <find searchmode="document"> \
    <qtext qname="AAA" qraw="true" qtagname="[any tag]"></qtext> \
  </find> \
</dwquery>)';
 dreamweaver.findNext();

And the dreamweaver.setUpComplexFindReplace() together with dreamweaver.replace() can work.

 dreamweaver.setUpComplexFindReplace('<dwquery> \
  <queryparams matchcase="false" ignorewhitespace="false" useregexp="false" wholeword="false" textonly="false" /> \
  <find searchmode="document"> \
    <qtext qname="AAA" qraw="true" qtagname="[any tag]"></qtext> \
  </find> \
  <replace action="replaceText" param1="BBB" param2=""/> \
</dwquery>)';
 dreamweaver.replace();

It should be a bug of dreamweaver.findNext(); or together with setUpComplexFind/setUpFind.
