Bookmark is a “facade” object that encapsulates two nodes BookmarkStart and BookmarkEnd in a document tree and allows to work with a bookmark as a single object.


Shows how to add bookmarks and update their contents.

    // Bookmarks can be accessed in the bookmark collection by index or name, and their names can be updated.
    bookmarks->idx_get(0)->set_Name(String::Format(u"{0}_NewName", bookmarks->idx_get(0)->get_Name()));
    bookmarks->idx_get(u"MyBookmark_2")->set_Text(String::Format(u"Updated text contents of {0}", bookmarks->idx_get(1)->get_Name()));

    // Print all bookmarks again to see updated values.
