insertString
[oneway] void
insertString( [in] XTextRange  xRange,
[in] string  aString,
[in] boolean  bAbsorb );

Description
inserts a string of characters into the text.

The string may contain the following white spaces:

  • blank
  • tab
  • cr (which will insert a paragraph break)
  • lf (which will insert a line break)
Parameter xRange
specifies the position of insertion. For example, XSimpleText::createTextCursor can be used to get an XTextRange for this argument.

If the parameter bAbsorb was true the text range will contain the new inserted string, otherwise the range (and it's text) will remain unchanged.

Parameter aString
specifies the string to insert.
Parameter bAbsorb
specifies whether the text spanned by xRange will be replaced. If true then the content of xRange will be replaced by aString, otherwise aString will be inserted at the beginning of xRange.
Example
 xText.insertString( xTextCursor, "Hello " + aName$ + ",", false )
 
 xText.insertControlCharacter( xTextCursor,
 ControlCharacter_PARAGRAPH_BREAK, false );
 
 xText.insertString( xTextCursor, "more text ...", false )
