[libreoffice-users] Bug selecting text using the API

Tested using LO on Fedora Linux.

I wanted to find all instances of Italic text using the API and select that text. I created a simple document with four areas that were Italic. I used the following macro and, although FindAll does return all italic text, it only selects the last three instances and not the first one.

My example had two instances in normal text and two instances in a text table.

If I have more than once instance, it ignores the first. If I have ONLY one instance of Italic text, it will select the text.

Sub FindItalic_all
  Dim oDescriptor  'The search descriptor
  Dim oFound       'The found range
  Dim SrchAttributes(0) as new com.sun.star.beans.PropertyValue

  SrchAttributes(0).Name = "CharPosture"
  SrchAttributes(0).Value =  com.sun.star.awt.FontSlant.ITALIC
'  SrchAttributes(0).Name = "CharFontName"
'  SrchAttributes(0).Value =  "Comic Sans MS"

  oDescriptor = ThisComponent.createSearchDescriptor()

  oFound = ThisComponent.findAll(oDescriptor)

'  Dim i As Integer
'  for i = 0 To oFound.Count - 1
'    Print oFound.getByIndex(i).getString(i)
'  Next
End Sub
