Aspose::Words::RevisionCollection::get_Count method

RevisionCollection::get_Count method

Returns the number of revisions in the collection.

int32_t Aspose::Words::RevisionCollection::get_Count()


Shows how to work with revisions in a document.

builder->Write(u"This does not count as a revision. ");

doc->StartTrackRevisions(u"John Doe", System::DateTime::get_Now());

builder->Write(u"This is revision #1. ");

ASSERT_EQ(1, doc->get_Revisions()->get_Count());

// This flag corresponds to the "Review" -> "Tracking" -> "Track Changes" option in Microsoft Word.
// The "StartTrackRevisions" method does not affect its value,
// and the document is tracking revisions programmatically despite it having a value of "false".
// If we open this document using Microsoft Word, it will not be tracking revisions.

// We have added text using the document builder, so the first revision is an insertion-type revision.
SharedPtr<Revision> revision = doc->get_Revisions()->idx_get(0);

// also linger in the document until we accept the revision.

// and then remove the collection's revision itself.

builder->Write(u"This is revision #2.");
