Adding text to textbox

I have docx with some text boxes in that. I want to insert text in text boxes without replacing text boxes


Please try using the following code. Hope, this helps in achieving what you are looking for:

Document doc = new Document();

Shape plainTextShape = new Shape(doc, ShapeType.TextPlainText);

plainTextShape.RelativeHorizontalPosition = RelativeHorizontalPosition.Page;
plainTextShape.RelativeVerticalPosition = RelativeVerticalPosition.Page;
plainTextShape.HorizontalAlignment = Aspose.Words.Drawing.HorizontalAlignment.Center;
plainTextShape.VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center;

plainTextShape.Width = 300;
plainTextShape.Height = 70;

plainTextShape.TextPath.Text = "The Text inside Shape";

plainTextShape.Name = string.Format("Name_{0}", Guid.NewGuid());
plainTextShape.WrapType = WrapType.None;


Shape anotherShape = new Shape(doc, ShapeType.TextBox);
anotherShape.WrapType = WrapType.Inline;
anotherShape.Width = 300;
anotherShape.Height = 70;

Paragraph para = new Paragraph(doc);
Run runText = new Run(doc, "This is inline Text Box");
