Highlight selected rows and delete it


Is there a way at to highlight the number of rows and do a delete all those rows? Currently this is how it's done in the Word Object.

WordObj.Selection.MoveDown(Unit:=wdParagraph, Count:=3)
WordObj.Selection.MoveRight(Unit:=wdCell, Count:=1)
WordObj.Selection.MoveDown(Unit:=wdParagraph, Count:=8, Extend:=wdExtend)

Also, since there is no MoveUp/MoveDown in Aspose.Words how could the following be done?

WordObj.Selection.MoveUp(Unit:=wdLine, Count:=2)
WordObj.Selection.MoveDown(Unit:=wdLine, Count:=2)

Do I just have to define the exact row to clone? Any advice/suggestions or even better code sample would be great. Thanks for your help. By the way, I'm using VB .NET.

Thanks for your request. You can remove table rows using the following code:

'Get table

Dim tab as Table = doc.FirstSection.Body.Tables(0))

'Remove row from table


You should clone existing row and use InsertAfter method for inserting this row after original row.

'Open document

Dim doc As Document = New Document("test.doc")

'Get table from the second section of document

Dim myTable As Table = doc.Sections(0).Body.Tables(0)

'Get row of table (its idex is 16)

Dim myRow As Row = myTable.Rows(16)

'Clone row

Dim newRow As Row = CType(myRow.Clone(True), Row)

myTable.InsertAfter(newRow, myRow refRow)

'Save document


Hope this helps.

Best regards.

Thanks for your help!
