Working with Content Controls

What is Content Control?

Content controls are individual controls that you can add and customize to use in templates, forms, and documents. For example, many online forms are designed with a drop-down list control that provides a restricted set of choices.

NOTE

You can use content controls only in documents that are saved in the Open XML Format and cannot be used in the Word 97-2003 document (.doc) format.

Content controls can be categorized based on its occurrence in a document as follows,

  • InlineContentControl: Among inline content inside, as a child of a paragraph.
  • BlockContentControl: Among paragraphs and tables, as a child of a Body, HeaderFooter, Comment, Footnote, or a Shape node.

Block Content Control

You can add content control to a text body of the Word document using block content control. You can add text, tables, pictures, or other items into the block content control. Refer to the following code.

//Creates a new Word document 
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
//Adds new section to the document
IWSection section = document.AddSection();
WTextBody textBody = section.Body;
//Adds block content control into Word document
BlockContentControl blockContentControl = textBody.AddBlockContentControl(ContentControlType.RichText) as BlockContentControl;
//Adds new paragraph in the block content control
WParagraph paragraph = blockContentControl.TextBody.AddParagraph() as WParagraph;
//Adds new text to the paragraph
paragraph.AppendText("Block content control");
//Adds new table to the block content control
WTable table = blockContentControl.TextBody.AddTable() as WTable;
//Specifies the total number of rows and columns
table.ResetCells(2, 3);
//Adds new paragraph to the block content control
paragraph = blockContentControl.TextBody.AddParagraph() as WParagraph;
//Adds image to the paragraph
paragraph.AppendPicture(Image.FromFile("Image.png"));
//Saves and closes the Word document instance
document.Save("Sample.docx", FormatType.Docx);
document.Close();

Inline Content Control

You can add content control as a child to a paragraph using the inline content control. You can add text, pictures, fields or other paragraph items into the inline content control. Refer to the following code.

//Creates a new Word document 
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
//Adds one section and one paragraph to the document
document.EnsureMinimal();
//Gets the last paragraph
WParagraph paragraph = document.LastParagraph;
//Adds text to the paragraph
paragraph.AppendText("A new text is added to the paragraph. ");
//Appends inline content control to the paragraph
InlineContentControl inlineContentControl = paragraph.AppendInlineContentControl(ContentControlType.RichText) as InlineContentControl;
WTextRange textRange = new WTextRange(document);
textRange.Text = "Inline content control ";
//Adds new text to the inline content control

Why Content Control?

The content controls have the following three major use cases:

  • Protection
  • Form Filling
  • Data Binding with Content Controls (XML Mapping)

Protection

Content controls provides options to prevent users from editing or deleting parts of a Word document contents. This is useful if you have information in a Word document or template that you should be able to read but not edit, or if you want to be able to edit content controls but not delete them.

To protect contents inside a content control, you can use properties of the content control to prevent editing or deleting the content control:

  • The LockContents property prevents from editing the contents of the content control.
  • The LockContentControl property prevents from deleting the content control.

The following code sample shows how to protect the content control and its contents.

//Creates a new Word document 
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
//Adds one section and one paragraph to the document
document.EnsureMinimal();
//Gets the last paragraph
WParagraph paragraph = document.LastParagraph;
//Adds text to the paragraph
paragraph.AppendText("A new text is added to the paragraph. ");
//Appends rich text content control to the paragraph
IInlineContentControl contentControl = paragraph.AppendInlineContentControl(ContentControlType.RichText) as InlineContentControl;
WTextRange textRange = new WTextRange(document);
textRange.Text = "Rich text content control.";
//Adds new text to the rich text content control
contentControl.ParagraphItems.Add(textRange);
//Sets tag appearance for the content control
contentControl.ContentControlProperties.Appearance = ContentControlAppearance.Tags;
//Sets a tag property to identify the content control
contentControl.ContentControlProperties.Tag = "Rich Text Protected";
//Sets a title for the content control
contentControl.ContentControlProperties.Title = "Text Protected";
//Enables content control lock
contentControl.ContentControlProperties.LockContentControl = true;
//Protects the contents of content control
contentControl.ContentControlProperties.LockContents = true;
//Saves and closes the Word document instance
document.Save("Sample.docx", FormatType.Docx);
document.Close();

document.Close();

Form Filling

Another major use case is to create the forms. You can design your own forms for various stages using the text box, check box, and list box. Refer to the following code example.

Form creation:

//Create a new document
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
//Adding a new section to the document
IWSection section = document.AddSection();
//Adding a new paragraph to the section
IWParagraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();

#region Document formatting
//Sets background color for document
document.Background.Gradient.Color1 = System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(232, 232, 232);
document.Background.Gradient.Color2 = System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(255, 255, 255);
document.Background.Type = BackgroundType.Gradient;
document.Background.Gradient.ShadingStyle = GradientShadingStyle.Horizontal;
document.Background.Gradient.ShadingVariant = GradientShadingVariant.ShadingDown;
//Sets page size for document
section.PageSetup.Margins.All = 30f;
section.PageSetup.PageSize = new System.Drawing.SizeF(600, 600f);
#endregion

#region Title Section
//Adds a new table to the section
IWTable table = section.Body.AddTable();
table.ResetCells(1, 2);
//Gets the table first row
WTableRow row = table.Rows[0];
row.Height = 25f;
//Adds a new paragraph to the cell
IWParagraph cellPara = row.Cells[0].AddParagraph();
//Appends a new picture
IWPicture pic = cellPara.AppendPicture(System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(@"D:\image.jpg"));
pic.Height = 80;

Data Binding with Content Controls (XML Mapping)

Word allows you to store XML data, named custom XML parts, in a Word document. You can control the display of this data by binding content controls to elements in a custom XML part. When you open the Word document, the content controls display the values of the XML elements. Any changes that you make to the text in the content controls are saved in the custom XML part (two-way data binding). Refer to the following code sample to map custom XML parts to content control.

//Creates a new Word document 
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
//Adds new section to the document
IWSection section = document.AddSection();
//Adds new paragraph to the section
IWParagraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
//Adds new XmlPart to the document

//Loads the xml code

//Appends date picker content control to the paragraph
InlineContentControl datePicker = paragraph.AppendInlineContentControl(ContentControlType.Date) as InlineContentControl;
WTextRange textRange = new WTextRange(document);
//Sets today's date to display
textRange.Text = DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString();
datePicker.ParagraphItems.Add(textRange);
