Document is Writer, with single Input field (nothing else in it), and here is my code:

Global oListener as Object
Global oVetoListener as Object
Global oInput as Object

Sub Listen
    oInput = GetTextInputField(ThisComponent, "a")
    oListener = createUnoListener("MyEvent_", "")
    oInput.addPropertyChangeListener("", oListener)

End Sub

Sub StopListen
    oInput.removePropertyChangeListener("", oListener)
End Sub

Sub MyEvent_disposing(oEvent)
    MsgBox "disposing"
End Sub

Sub MyEvent_propertyChange(oEvent)
    MsgBox "modified"
End Sub

Function GetTextInputField(Doc as Object, FieldName as String) as Object
    Dim TextFields as Object
    Dim TextField as Object
    TextFields = Doc.getTextFields.createEnumeration
    While TextFields.hasMoreElements()
        TextField = TextFields.nextElement()
        If TextField.supportsService("") Then
            If TextField.Hint = FieldName Then
                GetTextInputField = TextField
            End If
        End If
End Function

Sub ShowContent
    F = GetTextInputField(ThisComponent, "a")
    MsgBox F.getPropertyValue("Content")
End Sub

ShowContent shows Input field content corectly, so I assume GetTExtInputField works fine. Unfortunately nothing happends on Content change. I have tried both

oInput.addPropertyChangeListener("", oListener)


oInput.addPropertyChangeListener("Content", oListener)

None of them works. What is the problem?

"Content" is an attribute of "Input", not a member of it's property set. I suggest the modify listener.

I'm fairly new to Basic, with more expirience in python, but: oInput.DBG_properties in Listen returns: Properties of object "SwXTextField": SbxSINGLE IsFieldUsed; SbxSTRING Content; [...] "Content" is listed as a property. I must be clearly missing something here on fundamental level if you are right.
