Change font with Aspose.word and VB

I have an appication where I open up a word document make some changes and save it. One of the things that I am trying to do is search for a word string (fopr example “KPractice”) and replace it with a wingding symbol prior to the word. So it would be (“wingding character”)Practice. I am using Aspose.word for .net and am programming in VB. Any assistance would be great.


Thanks for your inquiry. Please try using the following code:

// Open document.
Document doc = new Document(@"Test085\in.doc");
// Replace KPractice with Wingdings \x00A3 character.
Regex regex = new Regex("KPractice", RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);
doc.Range.Replace(regex, new ReplaceEvaluator(ReplaceWingdingsCheckboxes), false);
// Save output document.
private static ReplaceAction ReplaceWingdingsCheckboxes(object sender, ReplaceEvaluatorArgs e)
    // Set replacement.
    e.Replacement = "\x00A3";
    // We also should change font of the run.
    ((Run)e.MatchNode).Font.Name = "Wingdings";
    // Signal to the replace engine to do replace matched text.
    return ReplaceAction.Replace;

I think it should be easy for you to translate this code to VB. Please let me know in case of any issues.
Hope this helps.
Best regards,
