[Java] Line numbers in a document

I can’t find example or how to get the current line number while I am creating the MS Word file. And the

doc.getBuiltInDocumentProperties().getLines() method returns wrong number. 

The documents might be signed, so I don’t want to change the format if possible.
Is there some workaround ?

Best regards,
speedyGonzales



Hi Yoncho,

Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that MS Word
document is flow document and does not contain any information about
its layout into lines and pages. Therefore, technically there is no
“Page”
and “Line” concept in Word document.

Aspose.Words uses our own Rendering Engine to layout documents into pages and lines. Please check the attached DocumentLayoutHelper sample. This sample demonstrates how to easily work with the layout elements of
a document and access the pages, lines, rows, spans etc.

Could you please attach your input Word document here for testing? I will investigate the issue on my side and provide you more information.

Ok, I will see and test your suggestion on my side. Here is a sample document I created to do some tests. I want to be able to get the lines inside the table too. Instead of 14, the line count is 5. Here is some code.

public class LineNumberTest {


public void testLines(){
Document doc=null;
try {
doc = new Document( “~\LineCountTest.docx”);
} catch (Exception e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e.printStackTrace();
}

BuiltInDocumentProperties props = doc.getBuiltInDocumentProperties();
for(DocumentProperty p: props){
System.out.println(p.getName()+" "+p.getValue());
}
}

public static void main(String[] args) {
LineNumberTest test=new LineNumberTest();
test.testLines();
}

}
