Use -HTML Switch in Fields & Build Reports using C# LINQ .NET JSON | Format Hyperlinks | Save Report to PDF

Hyperlink appears as plain text in Aspose LINQ Reporting. Have attached an example where the hyperlink is added as a static text in the document which appears as clickable and in blue and also inserting content dynamically with html switch <<[Content] -html>> which appears as plain text(no formating)

Expectation is to have the formating as the static hyper link

Attached is the solution which has the sample word document and sample Json.

@ravikkashyap,

I have modified your ‘Location.json’ file - (see Location-modified.zip (342 Bytes)), and when you run your C# project against this modified JSON, you will get the desired output. I have also attached the output document here for your reference:

Hi,

Thanks you for your response. Is there any other way to achieve this? The JSON file is also generated dynamically ( It is not static).

Is there any config or setting within the word document?

@ravikkashyap,

Alternatively, you can try the following C# code. In this case, you will not have to do any changes in JSON file.

static void Main(string[] args)
{
    var templateId = "Location_Layout1.docx";
    var templateFile = ReadResourceData(templateId);
    string templateData = ReadResourceJson("Location.json");

    // Generate JSON data source from the request
    MemoryStream dataStream = new MemoryStream(Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(templateData));
    JsonDataSource jsonDataSource = new JsonDataSource(dataStream);

    // Generate Document
    using (var templateDocumentStream = new MemoryStream(templateFile))
    {
        Document asposeDocument = new Document(templateDocumentStream);

        // Mark existing hyperlink fields
        foreach (Field field in asposeDocument.Range.Fields)
        {
            if (field.Type == FieldType.FieldHyperlink)
            {
                FieldHyperlink link = (FieldHyperlink)field;
                link.ScreenTip = link.ScreenTip + "removeMe";
            }
        }

        ReportingEngine engine = new ReportingEngine();
        engine.KnownTypes.Add(typeof(ControlChar));
        engine.BuildReport(asposeDocument, jsonDataSource);

        // Apply formatting to newly added hyperlink fields only
        foreach (Field field in asposeDocument.Range.Fields)
        {
            if (field.Type == FieldType.FieldHyperlink)
            {
                FieldHyperlink link = (FieldHyperlink)field;
                if (link.ScreenTip == null)
                    FormatHyperlink(field);
                else if (link.ScreenTip.Contains("removeMe"))
                    link.ScreenTip.Replace("removeMe", "");
            }
        }

        asposeDocument.Save("E:\\Temp\\TestAsposeSample\\20.6.docx", SaveFormat.Docx);
    }
}

public static void FormatHyperlink(Field field)
{
    Node currentNode = field.Start;
    while (currentNode != null)
    {
        if (currentNode == field.End)
            break;

        if (currentNode.NodeType.Equals(NodeType.Run))
        {
            Run run = (Run)currentNode;
            run.Font.StyleIdentifier = StyleIdentifier.Hyperlink;
            run.Font.Name = "Arial";
            run.Font.Size = 14;
        }

        Node nextNode = currentNode.NextPreOrder(currentNode.Document);
        currentNode = nextNode;
    }
}

Thanks. I will try this.

I am assuming this will work for output as PDF?

@ravikkashyap,

Yes, when you save it to PDF, the same code will produce the expected output. I have attached the output PDF file here for your reference:
