Text search in calligra active spreadsheets!!!

Hey calligra active users, I pushed the changes for text search in calligra active spreadsheets. So it should work like the same way I implemented for presentation slides. Here is the screenshot:

I search the word “test” and you may see that it highlights if word test is there in the sheet. And you may search for previous occurrence and next occurrence of search text. The screenshot should give fair idea of implementation. I should give a big thanks to Arjen Hiemstra, for clarifying my queries whenever I needed. Even Marijn Kruisselbrink raised his helping hand, so thanks to Marijn Kruisselbrink. Now time to do some more testing on the feature. If found any issue in search, please let me know so that I will fix it. I had also edited wiki regarding the implementation of the feature.

I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the
eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come
here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?

Exceptional work!

How does it work? When you somehow call the find command, it gives you a list of words in your spreadsheet, you select one, and it highlights all the matching words in the spreadsheet.

When you search for a word/text, if it is available in the current sheet the word/text gets highlighted. But if it is not available in current sheet then it searches in the next sheet(s) or previous sheet(s). And it highlights one word per match. So if a sheet has more than one match then it doesn’t highlight all the matches. You need to click “find next” and “find previous” buttons respectively. I hope this clarifies your doubt?
