Inserting Return line into bulleted list

Hi, i have a problem with inserting a return line into a bulleted list.


I have attached a zip file that contains:

ReturnTest.java My JUnit class to test the behavior
ReplaceEvaluator.java The class that replace the text in a return line char
result.docx The result i get with the code
template.docx My Word template
excepted.docx The excepted result

What i am trying to do is to replace a special word in the first list item, in this case: “{enter}” with a return line char (ControlChar.PARAGRAPH_BREAK). (I have tried with the other ControlChar breaks too)

So a return line does replace the {enter}, but a new bullet is not created, it just add a new line into the first list item paragraph.

I have tested is a Word document to be sure that it was not his default behavior, if you press ENTER inside a bulleted list item, it will create a new item with a bullet.

Can you tell me the way to achieve this, or is it a bug?
Thank you for your help!



Hi Gilles,


Thanks for your inquiry. Please use the following code snippet to achieve your requirement and read following documentation link for your kind reference.

<span style=“font-size:
10.0pt;font-family:“Courier New”;color:#2B91AF;mso-no-proof:yes”>Document<span style=“font-size:10.0pt;font-family:“Courier New”;mso-no-proof:yes”> myDocument
= new Document(MyDir

  • “template.docx”);<o:p></o:p>

myDocument.getRange().replace(Pattern.compile("\\{enter}"), new ReplaceEvaluator(), true);

myDocument.save(MyDir + "result.docx");

public class ReplaceEvaluator implements IReplacingCallback

{

public int replacing(ReplacingArgs e) throws Exception {

// This is a Run node that contains either the beginning or the complete match.

Node currentNode = e.getMatchNode();

// The first (and may be the only) run can contain text before the match,

// in this case it is necessary to split the run.

if (e.getMatchOffset() > 0)

currentNode = splitRun((Run)currentNode, e.getMatchOffset());

// This array is used to store all nodes of the match for further highlighting.

ArrayList runs = new ArrayList();

// Find all runs that contain parts of the match string.

int remainingLength = e.getMatch().group().length();

while (

(remainingLength > 0) &&

(currentNode != null) &&

(currentNode.getText().length() <= remainingLength))

{

runs.add(currentNode);

remainingLength = remainingLength - currentNode.getText().length();

// Select the next Run node.

// Have to loop because there could be other nodes such as BookmarkStart etc.

do

{

currentNode = currentNode.getNextSibling();

}

while ((currentNode != null) && (currentNode.getNodeType() != NodeType.RUN));

}

// Split the last run that contains the match if there is any text left.

}

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder((Document)currentNode.getDocument());

builder.moveTo(currentNode);

builder.insertBreak(BreakType.PARAGRAPH_BREAK);

for (Run run : (Iterable) runs){

run.remove();

}

// Signal to the replace engine to do nothing because we have already done all what we wanted.

return ReplaceAction.SKIP;

}

private Run splitRun(Run run, int position) throws Exception

{

Run afterRun = (Run)run.deepClone(true);

afterRun.setText(run.getText().substring(position));
