Hi Sreedhar,

Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that an exception is thrown if a captured or replacement string contains one or more special characters: paragraph break, cell break, section break, field start, field separator, field end, inline picture, drawing object, footnote.

It would be great if you please share following detail for investigation purposes.

  • Please attach your input Word document.

  • Please share the text (special characters) which you want to highlight.

  • Please attach the output Word file that shows the undesired behavior.

As soon as you get these pieces of information to us we’ll start our investigation into your issue.

Hi ,

Thanks for replay am attaching input document file and i want to highlight the following string in my word document getting an error that selected value/selected node is read-only. Does anyone know a workaround?I have a radtreeview nested within a deleted radcombobox. if string is "getting an error that selected value/selected node is read-only." then highlight working fine but i want to highlight total phrase and is there any option to highlight the string with line breaks…

Hi Sreedhar,

Thanks for sharing the document. You document contains Non-breaking spaces. In this case, I suggest you please use following code example. I have attached the output document with this post for your kind reference.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "input.docx");
doc.getRange().replace(ControlChar.NON_BREAKING_SPACE_CHAR + "", " ", false, false);
String strName = "getting an error that selected value/selected node is read-only. Does anyone know a workaround\\?I have a radtreeview nested within a deleted radcombobox.";
Pattern regex = Pattern.compile(strName, Pattern.CASE_INSENSITIVE);
doc.getRange().replace(regex, new ReplaceEvaluatorFindAndHighlight(), false);
// Save the output document.
doc.save(MyDir + "Out.docx");

Hi Sreedhar,

Thanks for your inquiry.

*sreedhar.dharanikota:

may i know why your putting “” in Does anyone know a workaround?*

The first parameter of Range.Replace method is Regex. In your case, you want to find the question mark (?) text using Regex. So you need to escape question mark (?) with two backslashes ‘?’.

You need to create the regular expression which matches the complete text (both paragraphs) . If text is not according to document, the text will not be highlighted.

In this case, I offer you following solution.

  1. Please find the start of text (e.g first 10 characters of your first paragraph) using the same approach and insert a bookmark e.g bookmark1
  2. Please find the end of text (e.g last 10
    characters of your last or second paragraph) using the same approach and insert a
    bookmark e.g bookmark2
  3. After inserting bookmarks, you can highlight the text between these two bookmarks. For this, you need to get the Run nodes between these two bookmarks and highlight the color of Run node using Run.setHighlightColor method.

Hope this helps you. Please let us know if you have any more queries.
