I have an odt writer document with 2 input text
(added with the form designer toolbar). I manually type
into one of the fields. I copy/pasted a macro to see if
could grab the text within the input field but haven't
any luck. This is the test macro in Basic:

Sub EnumerateFields
    vEnum =
    If Not IsNull(vEnum) Then
      If vEnum.hasMoreElements() Then
        Print "OK"
        Print "NOT OK"
      End If
    End If
End Sub

If I manually run this macro I get the "NOT OK"

What am I doing wrong?
What is the correct way of getting the text field



I grabbed these two routines from my test modules
running them first....


Thanks for the reply but I'm still having trouble.
I'm either way off-course, misusing LO or making a dumb
rookie mistake.

I copied your macros to my odt document.
I then did a "tools, macros, run macro..." and selected the
Subs I copied.
If I run EnumerateTextFields then it yields the "Finished"
message box (nothing else).
If I run DisplayMasterFields then it yields the following

===Text Field Masters===

My odt document has 2 input fields in a form.

By the way, if I place a button within my form and configure
the "Mouse button pressed" to launch, say,
EnumerateTextFields then I get the following error message:
"LibreOffice BASIC runtime error. '423'
getTextFields" and it points at the line:
"oEnum = oDoc.getTextFields().createEnumeration()"

I'm stuck on something that should be quite simple.
I'm attaching my odt file hoping that someone can tell me
what novice mistake I'm making.

Trying to attach the file again but it seems that the mailing list strips it out.
