    GREP with Javascript vs. Find/Change dialog


      InDesign CS4

      Find/Change dialog, GREP tab



      This expression finds hyperlinks pretty well.


      When I put it in a .jsx file and fire it from the Scripts palette, it doesn't work.

      The following works, but obviously doesn't match as many hyperlinks:


      as in

      app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = 'http\:\/\/([\w\-\]+[\.\/]?)+';

      I've tried adding ?, \?, and \\? but it bombs out -- no matches.

      Same thing with the initial either/or between www and http as the start of the pattern.


      I wonder if a javascript grep guru could give me a hint as to how to translate this?


      Thank you.
