How can get field's data value

in word automation programatic, the field class have a “Data” property which can store some additional information. you can look below picture for more detail:

but in aspose,i can’t find equivalent property, does aspose not implement this property yet?


Hi Pyntia,

Thanks for your inquiry. Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Field.Data property returns or sets data in an ADDIN field. The data is not visible in the field code or result; it is only accessible by returning the value of the Data property. If the field isn’t an ADDIN field, this property will cause an error.

Aspose.Words does not support this property.

Moreover, a field in a Word document is a complex structure consisting of multiple nodes that include field start, field code, field separator, field result and field end. Fields can be nested, contain rich content and span multiple paragraphs or sections in a document. The Field class is a “facade” object that provides properties and methods that allow to work with a field as a single object.

The Start, Separator and End properties point to the field start, separator and end nodes of the field respectively.
