Libreoffice Writer Macro Code to Set Regular Expression enabled

I created a macro which works as expected if there is tick on regular expression in the find and replace dialog box. My question is which macro code need to be added so that if there is no tick on regular expression, the macro code will enable it? I am using Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, 18.04, LibreOffice 4.x to 6.x.

Simplly inspect your document. It supports service LibreOffice: SpreadsheetDocumentSettings Service Reference

That’s not what they asked for though… the RegularExpressions property there “specifies whether regular expressions in formulas are enabled”, not setting the Find&Replace dialog’s regular expression checkbox.

Create a search descriptor from the sheet in question and set the right properties.
