Incorrect search result by FontWeight.BOLD style

Postby karpo518 » Wed May 24, 2017 4:33 pm

I want to find substring by text styles. I try to search some characters by styles. I got correct substring, when i search by CharBackColor(or other) style.
But i got incorected result, when i search by CharWeight. Instead of substring, I got the whole paragraph, which has a bold text. Why is it happens?
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
import uno,sys,re
from import FontWeight
from import PropertyValue
oSearch = oDoc.createSearchDescriptor()
oSearch.SearchString = oSearchString
oSearch.SearchCaseSensitive = False
oSearch.SearchRegularExpression = True
oSearch.SearchStyles = True
oSearch.SearchWords = False
SrchAttributes = []
prop = PropertyValue()
prop.Name = 'CharWeight'
prop.Value = FontWeight.BOLD
oFound = oDoc.findNext(oLCurs, oSearch)
while oFound != False:
    if oDoc.Text.compareRegionEnds(oFound, oRCurs) <= 0:
    oString = oFound.getString()
    oFound = oDoc.findNext(oFound.End, oSearch)

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
oSearch.SearchStyles = True
oSearch.SearchWords = False

Maybe the result is an applied PARAGRAPH STYLE. The parapgraph style is always applied to a whole paragraph.
