Exclude Paragraphs within Tables

Hi


I am using below code to get all the paragraphs within the document.
paragraphs = CurrentSourceDocument.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Paragraph, True).ToArray()

but the problem is it also include the paragraphs that are within cells of a table.

Can you please help me in getting only normal paragraphs(i.e. exclude paragraphs inside tables)

Thanks

Hello

Thanks for your request. You can try using the following code:

Document doc = new Document("C:\\Temp\\in.docx");

foreach (Paragraph par in doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Paragraph, true))

{

if (par.GetAncestor(NodeType.Cell) != null)

Console.WriteLine(par.GetText() + " - IsInsideTable");

}

Best regards,

Hi


It worked Thanks.
Can you please help me to exclude header and footer paragraphs also.

Thanks

Hello

Thanks for your request. In this case you should use the following code:

Document doc = new Document("C:\\Temp\\in.docx");

foreach (Paragraph par in doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Paragraph, true))

{

if (par.GetAncestor(NodeType.HeaderFooter) != null)

Console.WriteLine(par.GetText() + " - IsInsideHeaderFooter");

}

Best regards,

Hi,

Is their some way to exclude header and footers.
Currently i am using below code:
paragraphs = CurrentSourceDocument.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Paragraph, True).ToArray()

I dont want to loop again and check if its header or footer node then remove.

Thanks

Hello

Thanks for your request. The only way to exclude HeaderFooter paragraphs from a collection is loop through this collection and remove unneeded paragraphs.

Could you please also describe your main requirement, maybe I will find the other way to achieve what you need.

Best regards,
