I'm using the matchChunk function to search for given words in a field and
then change the textStyle of those words to link. I'm having a problem
though when a given word is found in another, longer word. An example would
be "match" and "matches". The word I'm searching for is "match" but I only
want to find "match", not "matches".
My code is
if matchChunk(tStoryText, "(" & tWord & ")", tStartChar, tEndChar)
set the textStyle of char tStartChar to tEndChar of field "myText"
I need a RegEx string that will match only the whole word. Kind of like the
wholeMatches property works with the offset functions. Is this possible?
