Font.Bold in table cell

Using the AlternatingRowsDemo.cs. The DocumentBuilder CellFormat methods work readily but the Font properties such as below do not. What is the correct approach to conditionally making a cell bold in the event handler?

//so we have to iterate over all cells in the row.
for (int colIdx = 0; colIdx < 4; colIdx++)
mBuilder.MoveToCell(0, mRowIdx, colIdx, 0);
mBuilder.Font.Bold = true; //add this one line to the demo - it has no effect here.
mBuilder.CellFormat.Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = rowColor; //cool!

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

//Open document and create Documentbuilder

Document doc = new Document(@"Test120\in.doc");

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

//Move documentBuilder cursor into the cell

builder.MoveToCell(0, 0, 0, 0);

//Get current cell

Cell currentCell = builder.CurrentNode.GetAncestor(NodeType.Cell) as Cell;

if (currentCell != null)


//Get collection of runs in the cell

NodeCollection runs = currentCell.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Run, true);

//loop though all runs and change font

foreach (Run run in runs)


run.Font.Bold = true;



//Save output document


Hope this helps.

Best regards.
