parseCheckboxes

parseCheckboxes

ADVANCED / PREMIUM BASIC

Ticks or unticks a checkbox in a Word template.

Description
public void parseCheckboxes(String source, String target, ArrayList<Integer> checkboxes)

This method allows to modify the state of all the checkboxes of a given Word document.

It allows the modification of:

  • legacy checkboxes
  • Word 2010 checkboxes

The checkboxes are parsed sequentally, as they show in the Word document, and their final state is defined by the $checkboxes array of 0's and 1's (unchecked or checked respectively).

If the length of the checkboxes ArrayList is shorter than the total number of checkboxes the "extra" one will be ignored and left in their current state.

Parameters

source

The path to the Word document that you want to parse.

target

The path to the resulting Word document.

checkboxes

An ArrayList with possible values: 1 (tick) or 0 (untick).

In principle, this ArrayList should have as many entries as checkboxes in the Word document. If there are less the last checkboxes will be ignored and if there are more the extra values will be ignored.
