Get Page Number

I would like to search for a particular word in a word document and when I find that word, I would like to retrieve the page number where that word was found. Please help.



Please try using the following code:

private static Run SplitRun(Run run, int position)
    Run afterRun = (Run)run.Clone(true);
    afterRun.Text = run.Text.Substring(position);
    run.Text = run.Text.Substring((0), (0) + (position));
    run.ParentNode.InsertAfter(afterRun, run);
    return afterRun;

private class ReplaceEvaluator : IReplacingCallback
    ReplaceAction IReplacingCallback.Replacing(ReplacingArgs e)
        // This is a Run node that contains either the beginning or the complete match.
        Node currentNode = e.MatchNode;

        // The first (and may be the only) run can contain text before the match,
        // in this case it is necessary to split the run.
        if (e.MatchOffset > 0)
            currentNode = SplitRun((Run)currentNode, e.MatchOffset);

        // This array is used to store all nodes of the match for further removing.
        ArrayList runs = new ArrayList();

        // Find all runs that contain parts of the match string.
        int remainingLength = e.Match.Value.Length;
        while (
            (remainingLength > 0) &&
            (currentNode != null) &&
            (currentNode.GetText().Length <= remainingLength))
            remainingLength = remainingLength - currentNode.GetText().Length;

            // Select the next Run node.
            // Have to loop because there could be other nodes such as BookmarkStart etc.
                currentNode = currentNode.NextSibling;
            while ((currentNode != null) && (currentNode.NodeType != NodeType.Run));

        // Split the last run that contains the match if there is any text left.
        if ((currentNode != null) && (remainingLength > 0))
            SplitRun((Run)currentNode, remainingLength);

        LayoutCollector collector = new LayoutCollector((Document)e.MatchNode.Document);
        int startPage = collector.GetStartPageIndex((Run)runs[0]);

        Console.WriteLine("Page number is {0}", startPage);

        return ReplaceAction.Skip;

Document doc = new Document("E:\\Temp\\input.docx");

FindReplaceOptions opts = new FindReplaceOptions();
opts.Direction = FindReplaceDirection.Backward;
opts.ReplacingCallback = new ReplaceEvaluator();

doc.Range.Replace("should be", "", opts);


Hope, this helps.


I do not want to replace any text. All I want is to find text and return the page number of the text.


Hi @sumanta ,

the ReplaceAction.Skip seems to skip the replacement.

So there is no replacement done but you have your page numbers
Console.WriteLine("Page number is {0}", startPage);
