Subject [jira] [Created] (ODFTOOLKIT-383) Object TextNavigation doesn't return search value
Date Tue, 21 Jan 2014 13:17:19 GMT
Bob Hecker created ODFTOOLKIT-383:

             Summary: Object TextNavigation doesn't return search value
                 Key: ODFTOOLKIT-383
             Project: ODF Toolkit
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: simple api
    Affects Versions: 0.6-incubating
            Reporter: Bob Hecker
            Priority: Minor

When I load an .ott file and I try to search for placeholders I encounter strange behavior.
Some of the placeholders (not all) in the template cannot be found. I use the code shown below
to open the document and search for the placeholders

TextDocument odt = TextDocument.loadDocument("/");

TextNavigation search = new TextNavigation("<name>", odt);
while (search.hasNext()) {                
   TextSelection item = (TextSelection) search.nextSelection();
   System.out.println("Placeholder found");

The code works because some placeholders get replaced, but unfortunately not all. The only
difference I can find between the placeholders is the way they are recorded in the .ott file
Openoffice generated.

The placeholders who get replaced have this syntax:

<text:span text:style-name="T5">
   <text:placeholder text:placeholder-type="text">&lt;name&gt;    </text:placeholder>

While the placeholders who don't get replaced are recorded this way:

<text:placeholder text:placeholder-type="text">&lt;name&gt;</text:placeholder></text:p>

The ones who get replaced seem to have a text:span tag. I'm not sire if this is the real cause
of the problem but when I give the specific fields (who are not working) a text:span tag they
seem to get replaced.

I dont't have any deep knowledge of the odftoolkit but I think the loadDocument does something
with the data so the TextNavigation can't find the specific elements. Or the TextNavigation
is not functioning as I would expect.
