Detailed Description

provides functionality for hyphenation of single words.

Its three main functionalities are to provide a suitable position for breaking lines within a word, query about the existence of an alternative spelling at a specific position of a word and provide a list of possible hyphenation positions within a word.

A hyphenation position for a word with n characters is represented by a value in the range from 0 to n-2, indicating the position of the character after which the hyphenation is done. That is, it is after the first and before the last character.

A valid hyphenation position is a hyphenation position that fulfills all the restrictions implied by the properties MinLeading, MinTrailing and MinWordLength.

Member Function Documentation

returns information about all possible hyphenation positions of a word.

Returns
an com::sun::star::linguistic2::XPossibleHyphens for the given word and language if there are any hyphenation positions. NULL otherwise.
Parameters
aWordis the word for which information about the possible hyphenation positions is to be retrieved.
aLocaledefines the language of the word.

If the language is not supported, an IllegalArgumentException exception is raised.

Parameters
aPropertiesprovides property values to be used for this function call only. It is usually empty in order to use the default values supplied with the property set.

)
raises (com::sun::star::lang::IllegalArgumentException
)

tries to find a valid hyphenation position relative to the beginning of a word.

Note: Some languages, for example Arabic, are written from right to left.

Returns
the XHyphenatedWord for the last valid hyphenation position that is less than or equal to nMaxLeading - 1. If there is no such valid hyphenation position, NULL is returned.
Parameters
aWordis the word to be hyphenated.
aLocaledefines the language to be used.

If the language is not supported, an IllegalArgumentException exception is raised.

Parameters
nMaxLeadingspecifies the maximum number of characters to remain before the hyphen in the hyphenated word.

It has to be greater than or equal to 0.

Parameters
aPropertiesprovides property values to be used for this function call only. It is usually empty in order to use the default values supplied with the property set.

[in] com::sun::star::beans::PropertyValues  aProperties 
)
raises (com::sun::star::lang::IllegalArgumentException
)

checks whether hyphenation at a position in a word will result in an alternative spelling or not.

An alternative spelling position is a hyphen position where, if hyphenation is done here, the writing of the word changes. Example: "B&auml;cker" in German pre spelling-reform becomes "B&auml;kker" if hyphenation is done after the "c".

The hyphenation position does not need to be a valid one to be an alternative spelling position.

Returns
the information about the alternative spelling found at the specified position. Otherwise, if no alternative spelling was found, NULL is returned.
Parameters
aWordis the original word to be looked at for having an alternative spelling, if hyphenation is done at position nIndex.
aLocalespecifies the language to be used.

If the language is not supported, an IllegalArgumentException exception is raised.

Parameters
nIndexis the position in the word to be looked at.

If the length of the word is n, the value of this parameter has to be in the range from 0 to n-2.

Parameters
aPropertiesprovides property values to be used for this function call only. It is usually empty in order to use the default values supplied with the property set.
