Ms word textframe

Do you have a comperable object for ms word “textframe” in aspos words?

Hi
Thanks for your request. Maybe you can use TextBox. Please see the following code example:

// Create document
Document doc = new Document();
// Create new text Run
Run run = new Run(doc, "Some text");
Paragraph paragraph = new Paragraph(doc);
// Add text to paragraph
paragraph.AppendChild(run);
// Create New Shape as text box
Shape textBox = new Shape(doc, ShapeType.TextBox);
textBox.Width = 100;
textBox.Height = 100;
// Assign paragraph to shape
textBox.AppendChild(paragraph);
// Insert textbox into the document
doc.FirstSection.Body.FirstParagraph.AppendChild(textBox);
// Save output document
doc.Save("out.doc");

Hope this helps.
Best regards.

It seems you have the textframe object in aspose.slides. Is this broken off from msword funtionality?
If yes,.could i have both aspose,words and aspose. slides together working on a single document?

Hi
Thanks for your inquiry. Aspose.Slides can work only with PowerPoint documents, so you can process Word document using Aspose.Slides.
TextFrames are preserved during processing of the document using Aspose.Words. Could you tell me why and where you would like to use Frames. Actually, Frames are feature of old version of MS Word. Currently, TextBoxes are used instead of Frames.
Best regards.

I want to convert the following function to aspose.
the bookmarks are imbedded in a template doc file.

Hi
Thanks for your request. There are also the following functions
ResizeGraphics
processPageBreakInTextBox
Please provide me code of these methods, so I will be able to fully understand what this code does. Also, please attach your documents for testing.
Best regards.

Hi
Thank you for additional information. As I can see this code inserts HTML into the textbox, and if content overflows the textbox it creates a linked textbox at the next page. Unfortunately, linked textboxes are not supported by Aspose.Words. This is known issue #6970 in our defect database.
However, I think in your case it would be enough just move DocumentBuilder cursor to the bookmark and insert HTML. See the following code:

'Open document and create DocumentBuilder
Dim doc As Document = New Document("C:\Temp\in.doc")
Dim builder As DocumentBuilder = New DocumentBuilder(doc)
'move DocumentBuilder cursor to the bookmark
builder.MoveToBookmark("myBookmark")
'Read HTML from file
Dim html As String = File.ReadAllText("C:\Temp\myHtmlFile.html")
'Insert HTML at bookamrk
builder.InsertHtml(html)
'Save document
doc.Save("C:\Temp\out.doc")

Hope this helps.
Best regards,

I’m not sure iIget your response. Our code creates a new page for overflowing text/images using the continuation bookmark in the calling sequence.
Also, executing the code from your example:

Builder.InsertHtml(html)

generates and error: “Argument ‘Number’ is not a valid value.”

Hi
Thank you for additional information. Unfortunately, there is no way to determine whether content overflows the page or not using Aspose.Words.
Regarding problem with HTML insertion, Could you please provide me HTML that causes the problem. I tried to insert HTML you have attached earlier, but no errors occurs on my side.
Best regards.
