Examples

Shows to insert NOTEREF fields, and modify their appearance.

public void FieldNoteRef()
{
    Document doc = new Document();
    DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

    // Create a bookmark with a footnote that the NOTEREF field will reference.
    InsertBookmarkWithFootnote(builder, "MyBookmark1", "Contents of MyBookmark1", "Footnote from MyBookmark1");

    // This NOTEREF field will display the number of the footnote inside the referenced bookmark.
    // Setting the InsertHyperlink property lets us jump to the bookmark by Ctrl + clicking the field in Microsoft Word.
    Assert.AreEqual(" NOTEREF  MyBookmark2 \\h",
        InsertFieldNoteRef(builder, "MyBookmark2", true, false, false, "Hyperlink to Bookmark2, with footnote number ").GetFieldCode());

    // When using the \p flag, after the footnote number, the field also displays the bookmark's position relative to the field.
    // Bookmark1 is above this field and contains footnote number 1, so the result will be "1 above" on update.
    Assert.AreEqual(" NOTEREF  MyBookmark1 \\h \\p",
        InsertFieldNoteRef(builder, "MyBookmark1", true, true, false, "Bookmark1, with footnote number ").GetFieldCode());

    // Bookmark2 is below this field and contains footnote number 2, so the field will display "2 below".
    // The \f flag makes the number 2 appear in the same format as the footnote number label in the actual text.
    Assert.AreEqual(" NOTEREF  MyBookmark2 \\h \\p \\f",
        InsertFieldNoteRef(builder, "MyBookmark2", true, true, true, "Bookmark2, with footnote number ").GetFieldCode());

    builder.InsertBreak(BreakType.PageBreak);
    InsertBookmarkWithFootnote(builder, "MyBookmark2", "Contents of MyBookmark2", "Footnote from MyBookmark2");

    doc.UpdateFields();
    doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Field.NOTEREF.docx");
