[Solved] [C#] Get text between two ranges

Post by Lumberjack »

Hi
I have small problem . I'd like copy (get) text between two strings in document. This text should by insert at the end of second string.
This is my code.

Code: Select all


XSearchDescriptor xSearchDecriptor0 = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.util.XSearchable)oDoc).createSearchDescriptor();
  xSearchDecriptor0.setSearchString("<el:strony>");

 XSearchDescriptor xSearchDecriptor1 = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.util.XSearchable)oDoc).createSearchDescriptor();
  xSearchDecriptor1.setSearchString("</el:strony>");

  XTextRange  objAdresatStr = ((XTextRange)((unoidl.com.sun.star.util.XSearchable)oDoc).findFirst(xSearchDecriptor0)).getEnd();
  XTextRange  objAdresatStop = ((XTextRange)((unoidl.com.sun.star.util.XSearchable)oDoc).findFirst(xSearchDecriptor1)).getStart();

    XText xPos = (objAdresatStr).getText();

xPos.insertString(objAdresatStop , "[text between <el:strony> and </el:strony> ]" , false);

<el:strony> and </el:strony> are this two string. I what get formated text between <el:strony> and </el:strony> and insert at the and of </el:strony> string.

How can i do this?

Here is a simple Basic macro that finds the text between the two markers and copies it to a position just after the second marker. The original text is not deleted and the formatting is not copied. I do not see a way to copy the formatting if it has been applied manually. If you know that the formatting has been set with a character or paragraph style, that style could be applied to the text in the new position.

Code: Select all

Desc = ThisComponent.createSearchDescriptor()
Desc.searchString = "<el:strony>"
Rng1 = ThisComponent.findFirst(Desc)

Desc.searchString = "</el:strony>"
Rng2 = ThisComponent.findFirst(Desc)

oCurs = ThisComponent.Text.createTextCursorByRange(Rng1.End)
oCurs.gotoRange(Rng2.Start, TRUE)

CursString = oCurs.getString()
oCurs.gotoRange(Rng2.End, FALSE)
oCurs.setString(CursString)

Select the range and use gettransferable to copy it, then move the cursor to where you want it and use inserttransferable

This, in basic, copies the current selection, collapses the selection, and inserts a 2nd copy after it

Code: Select all

trans =thiscomponent.currentcontroller.gettransferable

thiscomponent.currentcontroller.viewcursor.collapsetoend

thiscomponent.currentcontroller.inserttransferable trans

Hi
Now i try to use getTransfarable() ( c# ) , no success. I Where is the problem? Cursor is set correct. Value of 'CurString' object is ok. But value is not copy below CurString position. Mayby selection

Code: Select all

((unoidl.com.sun.star.view.XSelectionSupplier)xControler).select(anySel);
works wrong. I try to copy object with formated text.
I have text :

strona 1

i expect :

strona 1
strona 1

Code: Select all

                       XText xText = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.text.XTextDocument)oDoc).getText();
                        XTextCursor oCurs = (XTextCursor)xText.createTextCursorByRange(objAdresatStr);
                        oCurs.gotoRange(objAdresatStop, true);

		       string CursString = oCurs.getString(); 
                        XController xControler = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.frame.XModel)oDoc).getCurrentController();
                        uno.Any anySel = new uno.Any(oCurs.GetType(), oCurs);
						
                        bool iSelect = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.view.XSelectionSupplier)xControler).select(anySel);
                        uno.Any selectedAny = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.view.XSelectionSupplier)xControler).getSelection();

                        unoidl.com.sun.star.datatransfer.XTransferable selectedContent = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.datatransfer.XTransferableSupplier)xControler).getTransferable();
                        
                        ((unoidl.com.sun.star.datatransfer.XTransferableSupplier)xControler).insertTransferable(selectedContent);

Here's a simple example in Basic that copies the document text

Code: Select all

Sub Main
c=thiscomponent.currentcontroller
c.select thiscomponent.gettext
trans = c.gettransferable
c.viewcursor.collapsetoend
c.inserttransferable trans
End Sub

Thanks. Its work. Below is my code :

Code: Select all

  XSearchDescriptor xSearchDecriptor1 = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.util.XSearchable)oDoc).createSearchDescriptor();
                        xSearchDecriptor1.setSearchString("<el:strony>");
                        XTextRange objAdresatStr = ((XTextRange)((unoidl.com.sun.star.util.XSearchable)oDoc).findFirst(xSearchDecriptor1)).getEnd();

                        xSearchDecriptor1 = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.util.XSearchable)oDoc).createSearchDescriptor();
                        xSearchDecriptor1.setSearchString("</el:strony>");
                        XTextRange objAdresatStop = ((XTextRange)((unoidl.com.sun.star.util.XSearchable)oDoc).findFirst(xSearchDecriptor1)).getStart();

                        XText xText = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.text.XTextDocument)oDoc).getText();
                        XTextCursor oCurs = (XTextCursor)xText.createTextCursorByRange(objAdresatStr);
                        oCurs.gotoRange(objAdresatStop, true);

                        XController xControler = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.frame.XModel)oDoc).getCurrentController();

                      //  ((unoidl.com.sun.star.frame.XModel)oDoc).
                        string s = oCurs.getString();
                      
;                        uno.Any anySel = new uno.Any(oCurs.GetType(), oCurs);
                        bool iSelect = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.view.XSelectionSupplier)xControler).select(anySel);
                        uno.Any selectedAny = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.view.XSelectionSupplier)xControler).getSelection();
                        bool b = selectedAny.hasValue();

                      
                     //   XReplaceDescriptor replaceSelec = ((XReplaceable)oCurs).createReplaceDescriptor();
                      //  replaceSelec.setSearchString("<el:imie />");
                      //  replaceSelec.setReplaceString("<el:imie />_1");

                     //   ((XReplaceable)oCurs).replaceAll(replaceSelec);

                        unoidl.com.sun.star.datatransfer.XTransferable selectedContent = ((unoidl.com.sun.star.datatransfer.XTransferableSupplier)xControler).getTransferable();
                        oCurs.collapseToEnd();
                  
                        ((unoidl.com.sun.star.datatransfer.XTransferableSupplier)xControler).insertTransferable(selectedContent);
But i have the question.
Is the any way to replace text from one to another in selection only (not in all document). From '"<el:imie />"' to "<el:imie />_1" but only in selection range. How can i do it? I want to keep formated text after replace. If '"<el:imie />"' is bold , "<el:imie />_1" should by bold .

Not sure what your asking. Are you asking how to do a search operation just on the selected text? If so I think you have to either use the dispatchhelper (the macro record will produce some code in BASIC for that which you'll have to translate) or go through each result and compare the range of what's found to the selection using XTextRangeCompare

It is possible i want to search and replace text in selected range. Now i use code to replace text in all document in success. This code replace 'text1' to 'text2' but in whole document (oDoc is all document).
I want use similar code to replace but in selection.

Code: Select all

XComponent oDoc = null;
     
oDoc = oDesk.loadComponentFromURL(fileName, fileName, 0, propVals);
			
XReplaceDescriptor replace = ((XReplaceable)oDoc).createReplaceDescriptor();
  
replace.setSearchString("text1");
replace.setReplaceString("text2");

((XReplaceable)oDoc).replaceAll(replace);

Record a macro and translate it into your language - I'm pretty sure you have to do that and you can't do it another way. Search in selection isn't an option in the searchdescriptor API method.
