How to get the field code view of a Word stream to display mergefield code in html

Hello,

Is that possible to load a Word document from a binary tab and get the ALT F9 view of the Word document in a string ?

I achieved to diplay from a stored document :
<>
but I rather have
{ MERGEFIELD myMergeField * MERGEFIELD } shown

The main point for I is to be able to show the user the conditionnal IF instead of the view of the mergefield if :
{ IF “1”=“HelloWorld” “Test” “Hello” }
instead of 1 1 1

Thanks in advance.
Regards.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "in.docx");

FieldStart fStart = (FieldStart)doc.GetChild(NodeType.FieldStart, 0, true);

string field = GetMailMergeField(fStart);

Hello, thanks for your quick reply. Sadly it doesn’t solve my matter.

I got that done already but i would like to get the mergiefield real value :
It’s that possible to get the { MERGEFIELD myMergeField * MERGEFIELD } string ? Instead of <> ?

Indead the resultat of << >> for conditionnal mergefield (IF) doesn’t work fine.

My aim is to display a text to my user (in HTML format) like that :
“Dear {MERGEFIELD name * MERGEFIELD },
hello world {MERGFIELD aText * MERGEFIELD }


(Not
“Dear <>,
hello world <>”)
So my user can edit his word model in a textArea ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Emilien,


Thanks for your inquiry. I share two method in my last post.

1) GetFieldCode : This method will return the value as MERGEFIELD myMergeField * MERGEFORMAT

2) GetMailMergeField : This method return the value as <>

So, in your case, I suggest you to use GetFieldCode method. Hope this helps you. If you still face problem, please manually create your expected input and output documents and attach here for reference. I will share the code according to your requirements.


Oh, sorry I didn’t catch that earlier.
I’m going to try it.
Thank you very much.
