sfdt fieldType


We are testing the DocumentEditor Control for my application. 
We were able to create merge fields by using the code:

fieldName = 'EmailID';
fieldCode = 'MERGEFIELD  ' + fieldName + '  \\* MERGEFORMAT ';
.editor.insertField(fieldCode, '«' + fieldName + '»');

And on the .sfdt file we found that the control has created the following:

{"characterFormat":{},"text":"MERGEFIELD  EmailID  \\* MERGEFORMAT"},

Now, we are trying to find on the opened document the Field or the result string we inserted on the document. So far, we are using the search module to find the result string ("«EmailID»"), but to achieve our needs, to enable the field edition, we are having some problems.
