Sharepoint quickparts

Hello,

I am evaluating sharepoint word pdf component

It seems that PDF documents generated from word documents that use sharepoint columns as quickparts do not always have the content of the columns in the PDFs.

If a word document was opened in Word by the user and then saved, the values of the columns will be embedded in the generated PDF.

If a column is changed in a Sharepoint edit page and immediately followed by PDF generation, the new value of that column will not appear in the PDF.

Is there a way to ensure that the PDF always have the most current values from the columns in sharepoint and not dependent on Word saving the document as the last step.

Thanks,

Vu Dang

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in our products. The problem occurs because custom XML properties through which SharePoint propagates metadata to the document are not supported by Aspose.Words.

I've linked you request to the appropriate issue in our defect database. You will be notified as soon as this feature is implemented.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Thank you for the quick response.

Is it possible to use Aspose Words API to insert the values in the word document where the quickparts are defined?

If so could you point me to which API can be used to do this?

Regards,

Vu Dang

Hi

Thanks for your request. Unfortunately, the current version of Aspose.Words does not allow you to achieve this. Currently, you can only get collection of SDT in the document and change their contents. But unfortunately, you cannot determine name of a particular SDT or a name of the field linked to this SDT. You can find more information about SDT here:

http://www.aspose.com/documentation/.net-components/aspose.words-for-.net/aspose.words.markup.structureddocumenttag.html

We will expose more properties of SDTs in one of future versions of Aspose.Words. Your request has been linked to the appropriate issue. You will be notified as soon as it is resolved.

Best regards,

Hi,

Thank you for your request.

Unfortunately currently there is no way to update the value of a structured document tag via Aspose.Words API. Or even replace the whole quickpart with a value, because the name of the structured document tag is not public either. We are sorry, but you will have to wait until the support of structured document tags is improved. You will be notified via this thread when the issue is resolved.

Thanks and Best Regards,
