Changing format of text in a document

Hi,

Looking for some help on chainging the format of specific text in a document. For example, I would like to open a document, find all instances of the word “test” and italicize them. I looked at the search and replace function but it did not have any way to replace a string with formattting (that I could see).

All help is appreciated.

Thanks for your request. Of course you can achieve this using Replace method. You should use ReplaceEvaluator in this case. Please see the following link for more information.

Also see the following code:

public void Test003()

{

//Open document

Document doc = new Document(@"Test003\in.doc");

//Replace word with mergefield using ReplaceEvaluator

Regex regex = new Regex("word");

doc.Range.Replace(regex, new ReplaceEvaluator(ReplaceInsertMergeField), false);

//Save output document

doc.Save(@"Test003\out.doc");

}

private ReplaceAction ReplaceInsertMergeField(object sender, ReplaceEvaluatorArgs e)

{

//Get MatchNode

Run run1 = (Run)e.MatchNode;

//Create Run

Run run2 = (Run)run1.Clone(true);

//Get index of match value

int index = run1.Text.IndexOf(e.Match.Value);

//split run that contains matched text

run2.Text = run1.Text.Substring(index + e.Match.Value.Length);

run1.Text = run1.Text.Substring(0, index);

run1.ParentParagraph.InsertAfter(run2, run1);

//Create document builder

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(e.MatchNode.Document);

//Move to run2

builder.MoveTo(run2);

//Change font

builder.Font.Bold = true;

builder.Font.Italic = true;

//Insert value

builder.Write(e.Match.Value);

return ReplaceAction.Skip;

}

Hope this helps.

Best regards.
