How to insert horizontal rule shape in a document and customize the formatting using .NET

Hi,

I am creating a document and I would like to add a Horizontal Rule. Can you tell me how?

I can see there is a property IsHorizontal rule on Shape, but how to create a Shape of that type?

Thanks,
Lukasz

@acturisaspose,

Thanks for sharing the document. Please use the following code example to get the desired output. Hope this helps you.

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
                   
//Solution 1
builder.InsertParagraph();
builder.InsertHtml("<hr>");

//Solution 2
Paragraph paragraph2 = builder.InsertParagraph();
paragraph2.ParagraphFormat.Borders.Bottom.LineStyle = LineStyle.Single;

doc.Save(MyDir + "18.8.docx");

Hi Tahir,

Thank you for your response.

Regarding solution 2, I can see this is not exactly what solution 1 does. The shape rendered using builder.InsertHtml("<hr>"); is different. Can you tell me what is that Shape or how to create one not using InsertHtml?

Thanks,
Lukasz

The DocumentBuilder.InsertHorizontalRule method was added into Aspose.Words API to insert a horizontal rule shape into the document.

Following code example shows how to insert horizontal rule shape in a document and customize the formatting.

// Use a document builder to insert a horizontal rule
Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
Shape shape = builder.InsertHorizontalRule();

HorizontalRuleFormat horizontalRuleFormat = shape.HorizontalRuleFormat;
horizontalRuleFormat.Alignment = HorizontalRuleAlignment.Center;
horizontalRuleFormat.WidthPercent = 70;
horizontalRuleFormat.Height = 3;
horizontalRuleFormat.Color = Color.Blue;
horizontalRuleFormat.NoShade = true;
