Formatted Text in Hyperlinks


I’m using Aspose Words 15.9, Visual Studio 2013, and .NET 4.5.

I would like to be able to use formatted text as the display text of a hyperlink inserted into a document using DocumentBuilder.

For example, the code line:

builder.InsertHyperlink(“Text with bold and italic formatting”, “http://www.aspose.com”, false);

Would insert a link into a document with the “Text with bold and italic formatting” in the standard hyperlink style.

But I want to make the words “bold” and “italic” match their formatting. So the link would look more like:

Text with bold and italic formatting

Is there a way I can do this with DocumentBuilder (or without it, whatever works)?

I tried moving to the field.Separator, and then outputting text using the standard DocumentBuilder.Write() method, but that didn’t work:

Field field = builder.InsertHyperlink(string.Empty, url, false);
builder.Write(“Link Text”);

Any suggestions?


Never mind, I’ve figured it out. It came to me five minutes after I’d posted the original request.

In case anyone wants to do this, I was really close in my attempt. Instead of moving to the field.Separator, I should have moved to the field.End:

Field field = builder.InsertHyperlink(string.Empty, url, false);
builder.Write(“Text with “);
builder.Bold = true;
builder.Bold = false;
builder.Write(” and “);
builder.Italic = true;
builder.Italic = false;
builder.Write(” formatting”);
