Working with Sections

A section contains the contents present in Headers, Footers and main document through the instances of WTextBody. A section also has a specific set of properties used to define the page settings, number of columns, headers and footers and so on that decide how the text appears. WTextBody represents group of paragraphs and tables etc.

//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();
//Appends the text to the created paragraph
paragraph.AppendText("AdventureWorks Cycles, the fictitious company on which the AdventureWorks sample databases are based, is a large, multinational manufacturing company.");
//Saves and closes the Word document instance
document.Save("Sample.docx", FormatType.Docx);
document.Close();

You can add the multiple sections into the document. When you add more than one section into the word document, the section starts from the next page by default.

You can also add a new section that starts on a same page by specifying the BreakCode as shown in following code example.

//Creates a new Word document
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
//Adds new section to the document
IWSection section = document.AddSection();
//Adds a paragraph to created section
IWParagraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
string paraText = "AdventureWorks Cycles, the fictitious company on which the AdventureWorks sample databases are based, is a large, multinational manufacturing company.";
//Appends the text to the created paragraph
paragraph.AppendText(paraText);
//Adds the new section to the document
section = document.AddSection();
//Sets a section break
section.BreakCode = SectionBreakCode.NoBreak;
//Adds a paragraph to created section
paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
//Appends the text to the created paragraph
paragraph.AppendText(paraText); 
//Saves and closes the Word document instance
document.Save("Sample.docx", FormatType.Docx);
document.Close();

Specifying Page Properties

Each section has its own page setup properties such as page size, orientation, margins, borders, etc.

The following code example shows how to set the page setup properties

//Creates a new Word document
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
IWSection section = document.AddSection();
//Sets page setup options
section.PageSetup.Orientation = PageOrientation.Landscape;
section.PageSetup.Margins.All = 72;
section.PageSetup.Borders.LineWidth = 2;
//Adds a paragraph to created section
IWParagraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
//Appends the text to the created paragraph
paragraph.AppendText("AdventureWorks Cycles, the fictitious company on which the AdventureWorks sample databases are based, is a large, multinational manufacturing company."); 
//Saves and closes the Word document instance
document.Save("Sample.docx", FormatType.Docx);
document.Close();
'Creates a new Word document
Dim document As New WordDocument()
Dim section As IWSection = document.AddSection()
'Sets page setup options
section.PageSetup.Orientation = PageOrientation.Landscape
section.PageSetup.Margins.All = 72
section.PageSetup.Borders.LineWidth = 2
'Adds a paragraph to created section
Dim paragraph As IWParagraph = section.AddParagraph()
'Appends the text to the created paragraph.
paragraph.AppendText("AdventureWorks Cycles, the fictitious company on which the AdventureWorks sample databases are based, is a large, multinational manufacturing company.")
Saves and closes the Word document instance

Creating Multi-column document

You can split the contents into two or more columns by specifying the column width and spacing between columns.

The following code example shows how to display contents in multiple columns.

//Creates a new Word document
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
//Adds the section into Word document
IWSection section = document.AddSection();
//Adds the column into the section
section.AddColumn(150, 20);
//Adds the column into the section
section.AddColumn(150, 20);
//Adds the column into the section
section.AddColumn(150, 20);
//Adds a paragraph to created section
IWParagraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
//Adds a paragraph to created section
paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
string paraText = "AdventureWorks Cycles, the fictitious company on which the AdventureWorks sample databases are based, is a large, multinational manufacturing company.";
//Appends the text to the created paragraph
paragraph.AppendText(paraText);
//Adds the column break
paragraph.AppendBreak(BreakType.ColumnBreak);
//Adds a paragraph to created section
paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
//Appends the text to the created paragraph
paragraph.AppendText(paraText);
//Adds the column break
paragraph.AppendBreak(BreakType.ColumnBreak);
//Adds a paragraph to created section
paragraph = section.AddParagraph();

Creating document with different page settings

You can prefer to have more sections in a Word document when you need to have different page settings or headers and footers for a specific set of contents. The following code example illustrates how to create a Word document with multiple sections whose page orientation are portrait and landscape respectively.

//Creates a new Word document
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
//Adds the section into Word document
IWSection section = document.AddSection();
//Adds a paragraph to created section
IWParagraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
string paraText = "AdventureWorks Cycles, the fictitious company on which the AdventureWorks sample databases are based, is a large, multinational manufacturing company.";
//Appends the text to the created paragraph
paragraph.AppendText(paraText);
//Sets the page orientation as portrait
section.PageSetup.Orientation = PageOrientation.Portrait;
//Adds the new section to the document
section = document.AddSection();
//Sets the section break
section.BreakCode = SectionBreakCode.NewPage;
paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
//Sets the page orientation as land scape
section.PageSetup.Orientation = PageOrientation.Landscape;
//Appends the text to the paragraph
paragraph.AppendText(paraText);
//Saves and closes the Word document instance
document.Save("Sample.docx", FormatType.Docx);
document.Close();

Working with Headers and Footers

Header and footer also represent the group of paragraphs and tables that occur at the top and bottom of the page respectively. Header and footer may vary for each section. The following are the types of Headers/Footers:

  • FirstPageHeader – Represents the first page header of the document.
  • FirstPageFooter – Represents the first page footer of the document.
  • OddHeader – Represents the odd page header of the document and it is the default header for the section.
  • OddFooter – Represents the odd page footer of the document and it is the default footer for the section.
  • EvenHeader – Represents the even page header of the document.
  • Even Footer - Represents the even page footer of the document.

The following code example illustrates how to add simple header and footer into a Word document.

//Creates a new document
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
//Adds the first section to the document
IWSection section = document.AddSection();
//Adds a paragraph to the section
IWParagraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
string paraText = "AdventureWorks Cycles, the fictitious company on which the AdventureWorks sample databases are based, is a large, multinational manufacturing company.";
//Appends some text to the first page in document
paragraph.AppendText("\r\r[ First Page ] \r\r" + paraText);
paragraph.ParagraphFormat.PageBreakAfter = true;
//Appends some text to the second page in document
paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
paragraph.AppendText("\r\r[ Second Page ] \r\r" + paraText);
paragraph.ParagraphFormat.PageBreakAfter = true;
//Appends some text to the third page in document
paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
paragraph.AppendText("\r\r[ Third Page ] \r\r" + paraText);
//Inserts the default page header
paragraph = section.HeadersFooters.OddHeader.AddParagraph();
paragraph.AppendText("[ Default Page Header ]");
//Inserts the default Page footer
paragraph = section.HeadersFooters.OddFooter.AddParagraph();
paragraph.AppendText("[ Default Page Footer ]");
//Saves and closes the Word document instance
document.Save("Sample.docx", FormatType.Docx);
document.Close();
