Hi

Thanks for your inquiry. MS Word adds Watermarks in the document as WordArt Shape with name like this “PowerPlusWaterMarkObject357766095”. So you can use shape name to identify Watermarks in Word documents. I think information provided in the following thread could be useful for you: <A href="https://forum.aspose.com/t/87687

Hope this helps.

Thanks for ur prompt response. it worked well .but i need to get Watermark text, provided by user .for example see this attached doc .it has watermark named ‘Ramakrishnan’.i need to get tat name .

Thanks in advance ,

Thanks for your inquiry. I think, you can try using code like the following:

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Document doc = new Document(@"Test010\Watermark.doc");

NodeCollection shapesColl = doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Shape, true, false);

foreach (Shape shape in shapesColl)

{

// Idetntify shape as watermark.

if (shape.Name.Contains("WaterMark"))

// Get text of the watermark.

Console.WriteLine(shape.TextPath.Text);

}

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Thanks for ur response . im using java .I cant find Name,TextPath.text function under SHAPE class. Can u give me the java code ?

Thanks in advance

Here is the same code in Java.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Document doc = new Document("C:\\Temp\\Watermark.doc");

NodeCollection shapesColl = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.SHAPE, true, false);

for (int i=0; i<shapesColl.getCount(); i++)

{

Shape shape = (Shape)shapesColl.get(i);

// Idetntify shape as watermark.

if (shape.getName().contains("WaterMark"))

// Get text of the watermark.

System.out.println(shape.getTextPath().getText());

}

Also, please see Aspose.Words for java API reference:

Hi

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your inquiry. MS Word identifies watermarks by shape names. So, you can just specify name of shape, like MS Word does. For example:

watermark.setName("PowerPlusWaterMarkObject357476642");

Hope this helps.
