Working with Bookmarks

A bookmark identifies a location or a selection of text within a document that you can name and identify for future reference.

In Essential DocIO, bookmark is represented by Bookmark instance that is a pair of BookmarkStart and BookmarkEnd. BookmarkStart represents start point of a bookmark and BookmarkEnd represents end point of a bookmark. Every Word document contains a collection of bookmarks that are accessible through the Bookmarks property of WordDocument class.

Adding a bookmark

The following code example shows how to add a bookmark in Word document.

//Creates an instance of WordDocument class (Empty Word Document)
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
//Adds a new section into the Word Document
IWSection section = document.AddSection();
//Adds a new paragraph into Word document and appends text into paragraph
IWParagraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
paragraph.AppendText("Northwind Database");
paragraph.ParagraphFormat.HorizontalAlignment = Syncfusion.DocIO.DLS.HorizontalAlignment.Center; 
//Adds a paragraph into section
paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
//Adds a new bookmark start into paragraph with name "Northwind"
paragraph.AppendBookmarkStart("Northwind");
//Adds a text between the bookmark start and end into paragraph
paragraph.AppendText("The Northwind sample database (Northwind.mdb) is included with all versions of Access. It provides data you can experiment with and database objects that demonstrate features you might want to implement in your own databases.");
//Adds a new bookmark end into paragraph with name " Northwind "
paragraph.AppendBookmarkEnd("Northwind");
//Adds a text after the bookmark end
paragraph.AppendText(" Using Northwind, you can become familiar with how a relational database is structured and how the database objects work together to help you enter, store, manipulate, and print your data.");
//Saves the document in the given name and format
document.Save("Bookmarks.docx", FormatType.Docx);
//Releases the resources occupied by WordDocument instance

Retrieving contents within a bookmark

BookmarkNavigator is used for navigating to a bookmark in a Word document. You can retrieve, replace and delete the content of a specified bookmark by using BookmarkNavigator.

You can get the content between bookmark start and bookmark end of the specified bookmark in two ways:

  1. You can use GetBookmarkContent method for retrieving content as collection of body items when the bookmark start and bookmark end are preserved in a single section.
  2. You can use GetContent method for retrieving content as collection of sections when the bookmark start and bookmark end are preserved in different sections.

The following code example shows how to retrieve the specified bookmark content by using GetBookmarkContent method in a Word document.

WordDocument document = new WordDocument("Bookmarks.docx", FormatType.Docx);
//Creates the bookmark navigator instance to access the bookmark
BookmarksNavigator bookmarkNavigator = new BookmarksNavigator(document);
//Moves the virtual cursor to the location before the end of the bookmark "Northwind"
bookmarkNavigator.MoveToBookmark("Northwind");
//Gets the bookmark content
TextBodyPart part = bookmarkNavigator.GetBookmarkContent();
//Adds the retrieved content into another new section
document.AddSection();
for (int i = 0; i < part.BodyItems.Count; i++)
    document.LastSection.Body.ChildEntities.Add(part.BodyItems[i]);
document.Save("Result.docx", FormatType.Docx);
document.Close();
Dim document As New WordDocument("Bookmarks.docx", FormatType.Docx)
'Creates the bookmark navigator instance to access the bookmark
Dim bookmarkNavigator As New BookmarksNavigator(document)
'Moves the virtual cursor to the location before the end of the bookmark "Northwind"

'Adds the retrieved content into another new section
document.AddSection()
For i As Integer = 0 To part.BodyItems.Count - 1
	document.LastSection.Body.ChildEntities.Add(part.BodyItems(i))
Next
document.Save("Result.docx", FormatType.Docx)

Retrieving bookmark contents within a table

You can select the column range for bookmarks inside the tables in Word documents by using FirstColumn and LastColumn properties.

NOTE

  1. FirstColumn and LastColumn properties are valid to select table cells, only when the respective bookmark end and start is present within the same row or next rows of the same table.
  2. FirstColumn property denotes the top left corner cell and LastColumn property denotes the bottom right corner cell of rectangular selection region since you can only select the content as a rectangular selection by using bookmarks within the table.
  3. FirstColumn property selects from the first cell of the respective row when this property value is negative (or) greater than the cells of a row (or) greater than the LastColumn value.
  4. LastColumn property selects till last cell of the respective row when this property value is negative (or) greater than the cells of a row (or) less than the FirstColumn value.

The following code example shows how to retrieve the bookmark content of a specified column range from a table in a Word document.

Inserting content into a bookmark

You can insert table, paragraph, simple text and paragraph item at the start or end location of the current bookmark by using bookmark navigator.

The following code example shows how to insert a simple text by using BookmarkNavigator.

WordDocument document = new WordDocument("Bookmarks.docx", FormatType.Docx);
//Creates the bookmark navigator instance to access the bookmark
BookmarksNavigator bookmarkNavigator = new BookmarksNavigator(document);
//Moves the virtual cursor to the location before the end of the bookmark "Northwind"
bookmarkNavigator.MoveToBookmark("Northwind");
//Inserts a new text before the bookmark end of the bookmark
bookmarkNavigator.InsertText(" Northwind Database is a set of tables containing data fitted into predefined categories.");
document.Save("Result.docx", FormatType.Docx);
document.Close();
Dim document As New WordDocument("Bookmarks.docx", FormatType.Docx)
'Creates the bookmark navigator instance to access the bookmark
Dim bookmarkNavigator As New BookmarksNavigator(document)
'Moves the virtual cursor to the location before the end of the bookmark "Northwind"
bookmarkNavigator.MoveToBookmark("Northwind")
'Inserts a new text before the bookmark end of the bookmark
bookmarkNavigator.InsertText(" Northwind Database is a set of tables containing data fitted into predefined categories.")
document.Save("Result.docx", FormatType.Docx)
document.Close()
//Loads the template document

bookmarkNavigator.InsertText(" Northwind Database is a set of tables containing data fitted into predefined categories.");
//Saves the Word file to MemoryStream
MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream();

Replacing content in a bookmark

You can replace the contents of an existing bookmark with simple text, TextBodyPart, WordDocumentPart.

NOTE

You cannot replace the multi section contents into a bookmark within table in Word documents. Use “for loop” instead of “foreach loop” to iterate through document elements when replacing the bookmark contents to avoid “collection modified exception”, as there is a chance for modification in the document elements on replacing the bookmark contents.

As per Microsoft Word behavior, you cannot replace the bookmark contents when the bookmark start and end is not in a same table as following cases:

Case 1

Bookmark start and end present in different tables

Case 2

Bookmark start placed outside table and end in table

The following code example shows how to replace a specified bookmark content by using ReplaceBookmarkContent method in Word document.

WordDocument document = new WordDocument("Bookmarks.docx", FormatType.Docx);
//Creates the bookmark navigator instance to access the bookmark
BookmarksNavigator bookmarkNavigator = new BookmarksNavigator(document);
//Moves the virtual cursor to the location before the end of the bookmark "Northwind"
bookmarkNavigator.MoveToBookmark("Northwind");

TextBodyPart textBodyPart = bookmarkNavigator.GetBookmarkContent();
document.AddSection();

paragraph.AppendText("Northwind Database is a set of tables containing data fitted into predefined categories.");
//Adds the new bookmark into Word document
paragraph.AppendBookmarkStart("bookmark_empty");
paragraph.AppendBookmarkEnd("bookmark_empty");
//Moves the virtual cursor to the location before the end of the bookmark "bookmark_empty"
bookmarkNavigator.MoveToBookmark("bookmark_empty");
//Replaces the bookmark content with text body part
bookmarkNavigator.ReplaceBookmarkContent(textBodyPart);
document.Save("Result.docx", FormatType.Docx);
