Feature request: Support for \* CardText and \* DollarText formatting codes


I’d like to be able to use the “* CardText” and “* DollarText” formatting fuctions in Aspose.Words. Would you consider supporting that?

Currently I use this technique (but I can only generate a Word output with it):
(1) In my template I create a Set Field like this:

{ SET Amount “{ MERGEFIELD MyAmountField }” }
Say I merge in a value like “500”.

(2) Elsewhere in the template I display the amount as text with:
{ REF Amount * CardText }

Microsoft Word converts the numeric amount into the word equivalent. It’d be great if Aspose.Words could do this so I can convert the document to PDF.

Thanks for considering it.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your inquiry. Your requests have been logged. We will keep you informed of any developments regarding these.


Hey Adam,

I realize I could build-in merge event handlers to deal with this, but it would seem like a core kind of feature that probably should be available to all Aspose.Words customers.

Have a great day.

Hi Michael,

It's great you are able to implement this functionality manually for now. We strive to include almost all features that are avaliable in MS Word into Aspose.Words so we will consider supporting the features you described sometime in the future.
