If (formula) ref form fields - is it possible to handle these with the aspose.word object modell?

Hello,

I have following problem (please see the attached zip for details).

In a MS Word 2000 template we have a lot of if (formula) form fields, that reference given form fields and yied an output based on the referenced field value. If we change the referenced field value with aspose, the value of the if-formula field is still the old one.

In word you actually either have to switch to priview mode to trigger the actualisiation process or with a right click and dann select the option in the context menu.

So, how can we handle this sutuation with the Aspose.Word object modell?

Hi,

Aspose.Word does not recalculate field values. We will add this feature, but it will be 2-3 months away or more. Unfortunately, at the moment there is no way to refresh field results in Aspose.Word.

Thank you.

Is this feature still unavailable? I noticed this post was added 2 years ago.

Thanks.
