Write new pargraph after current pargraph with same formatting

Hi there,

I want to add two lines (both must be in separate paragraph) after one paragraph with same formatting of above paragraph. to do this i am using below code but it is not working as it is adding both lines before current paragraph not after current paragraph. can you please help me in this?

	Document doc = new Document(dataDir + "/source.docx");
	Paragraph start = null;
	
	NodeCollection<Paragraph> paragraphs = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.PARAGRAPH, true);

	for (Paragraph para : paragraphs) {
		if (para.toString(SaveFormat.TEXT).startsWith("BODY_CONTENT")) {
			start = para;
			start.getRuns().get(0).setText("==START==");
		}
	}
	
	DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
	builder.moveToParagraph(paragraphs.indexOf(start) , 0);
	builder.writeln("INSERT_HTML");
	builder.writeln("==END==");
	doc.save(dataDir + "output.docx");

Thanks for sharing the detail. Please use second parameter of DocumentBuilder.MoveToParagraph method as -1 to move the cursor to the end of the paragraph

Please use the following modified code to get the desired output.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "source.docx");
Paragraph start = null;

NodeCollection<Paragraph> paragraphs = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.PARAGRAPH, true);

for (Paragraph para : paragraphs) {
    if (para.toString(SaveFormat.TEXT).startsWith("BODY_CONTENT")) {
        start = para;
        start.getRuns().get(0).setText("==START==");
        break;
    }
}

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
builder.moveToParagraph(paragraphs.indexOf(start) , -1);
builder.writeln();
builder.writeln("INSERT_HTML");
builder.write("==END==");
doc.save(MyDir + "output.docx");

Thanks for the quick reply. Above solution is not working for attached sample.

Please try the following code example to achieve your requirement. Hope this helps you.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "source.docx");
Paragraph start = null;

NodeCollection<Paragraph> paragraphs = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.PARAGRAPH, true);

for (Paragraph para : paragraphs) {
    if (para.toString(SaveFormat.TEXT).startsWith("MED_BODY_CONTENT")) {
        DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
        builder.moveTo(para);
        builder.writeln();
        builder.writeln("==START==");
        builder.writeln("INSERT_HTML");
        builder.write("==END==");
        para.remove();
        break;
    }
}

doc.save(MyDir + "output.docx");

Hi Tahir,

Solution works fine but it does not preserve the actual formatting of MED_BODY_CONTENT in newly created paragraphs that i have already mentioned on original question.

In this case, we suggest you please clone the paragraph node as shown below and set it text.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "source.docx");
NodeCollection<Paragraph> paragraphs = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.PARAGRAPH, true);

for (Paragraph para : paragraphs) {
    if (para.toString(SaveFormat.TEXT).startsWith("MED_BODY_CONTENT")) {
        if(para.getRuns().getCount() > 0)
        {
            Run run = (Run)para.getRuns().get(0).deepClone(true);
            run.setText("==START==");
            para.removeAllChildren();
            para.getRuns().add(run);

            Paragraph para2 =  (Paragraph) para.deepClone(true);
            para2.getRuns().get(0).setText("INSERT_HTML");
            para2 = (Paragraph) para.getParentNode().insertAfter(para2, para);

            Paragraph para3 =  (Paragraph) para.deepClone(true);
            para3.getRuns().get(0).setText("==END==");

            para2.getParentNode().insertAfter(para3, para2);
            break;
        }
    }
}

doc.save(MyDir + "output.docx");
