PM71381: DOORS spell checker throws DXL errors with Visio Drawing OLE

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a Visio Drawing OLE object is in the object text, running
    the spell checker will throw DXL errors.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Hidden text in the users data (which is not supported by DOORS
    but can get imported from other RTF sources) is causing issues.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Prevented the error causing DXL errors.  The underlying issue is
     still present and cannot be fixed due to the use of a third
    party control.
    

Temporary fix

  • Remove the hidden text to make the highlighting behave
    correctly.  This can be aided by using some DXL to unhide the
    text.
    
    
    This DXL will fix the text in the current object to reveal the
    hidden text.
    
    
    Object curObj = current
    
    string objRTFString = richTextWithOle( curObj."Object Text" );
    string strWorking = objRTFString
    
    Regexp Hidden = regexp2 "\\\\v[ \\\\].+?\\\\v[0-9]"
    while (Hidden strWorking)
    {
        int iStart = start 0
        int iEnd = end 0
    
        // Copy all of the RTF, but skip the \v and matching closing
    \vX
        string strNew = strWorking[0:iStart - 1]
    
        // Avoid inserting consecutive spaces
        int iSkip = ((strNew[length(strNew)-1] == ' ') &&
    (strWorking[iStart + 2] == ' ')) ? 3 : 2
        strNew = strNew strWorking[iStart + iSkip:iEnd - 3]
    
        iSkip = ((strNew[length(strNew)-1] == ' ') &&
    (strWorking[iEnd + 1] == ' ')) ? 2 : 1
        strNew = strNew strWorking[iEnd + iSkip:]
    
        strWorking = strNew
    }
    
    curObj."Object Text" = richText strWorking
