Name Description
GetFieldCode() Returns text between field start and field separator (or field end if there is no separator). Both field code and field result of child fields are included.
GetFieldCode(bool) Returns text between field start and field separator (or field end if there is no separator).
Remove() Removes the field from the document. Returns a node right after the field. If the field’s end is the last child of its parent node, returns its parent paragraph. If the field is already removed, returns null.
Unlink() Performs the field unlink.
Update() Performs the field update. Throws if the field is being updated already.

Examples

Shows how to insert an ADVANCE field, and edit its properties.

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

builder.Write("This text is in its normal place.");

// Below are two ways of using the ADVANCE field to adjust the position of text that follows it.
// The effects of an ADVANCE field continue to be applied until the paragraph ends,
// or another ADVANCE field updates the offset/coordinate values.
// 1 -  Specify a directional offset:
FieldAdvance field = (FieldAdvance)builder.InsertField(FieldType.FieldAdvance, true);
field.RightOffset = "5";
field.UpOffset = "5";

Assert.AreEqual(" ADVANCE  \\r 5 \\u 5", field.GetFieldCode());

builder.Write("This text will be moved up and to the right.");

field = (FieldAdvance)builder.InsertField(FieldType.FieldAdvance, true);
field.DownOffset = "5";
field.LeftOffset = "100";

Assert.AreEqual(" ADVANCE  \\d 5 \\l 100", field.GetFieldCode());

builder.Writeln("This text is moved down and to the left, overlapping the previous text.");

// 2 -  Move text to a position specified by coordinates:
field = (FieldAdvance)builder.InsertField(FieldType.FieldAdvance, true);
field.HorizontalPosition = "-100";
field.VerticalPosition = "200";

Assert.AreEqual(" ADVANCE  \\x -100 \\y 200", field.GetFieldCode());

builder.Write("This text is in a custom position.");

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Field.ADVANCE.docx");
