"Search with pattern" problem

I'm working on a VB project. My current objective is to find all occurences in code which may cause problems with localization, because there is a new requirement fpr supporting multiple languages and locales. I have identified occurences of date conversions with string constants like this:

myDateVar = CDate("01.10.1999")

I have tried to use "Search with pattern" to find all occurences of this kind. Therefore i defined the following pattern:


where arg1 is defined as expression of System.String. When i execute the pattern R# puts also all CInt, CStr... occcurences in the find result even is i uncheck "Match similar constructs". Do i miss something or is the function buggy?

By the way, my goal is to replace all occurences by using a Date like this

myDateVar = new Date(1999, 10, 1)

Is this possible with structural find and replace?
