Examples

Shows to use the QUOTE field.

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

// Insert a QUOTE field, which will display the value of its Text property.
FieldQuote field = (FieldQuote)builder.InsertField(FieldType.FieldQuote, true);
field.Text = "\"Quoted text\"";

Assert.AreEqual(" QUOTE  \"\\\"Quoted text\\\"\"", field.GetFieldCode());

// Insert a QUOTE field and nest a DATE field inside it.
// DATE fields update their value to the current date every time we open the document using Microsoft Word.
// Nesting the DATE field inside the QUOTE field like this will freeze its value
// to the date when we created the document.
builder.Write("\nDocument creation date: ");
field = (FieldQuote)builder.InsertField(FieldType.FieldQuote, true);
builder.MoveTo(field.Separator);
builder.InsertField(FieldType.FieldDate, true);

Assert.AreEqual(" QUOTE \u0013 DATE \u0014" + DateTime.Now.Date.ToShortDateString() + "\u0015", field.GetFieldCode());

// Update all the fields to display their correct results.
doc.UpdateFields();

Assert.AreEqual("\"Quoted text\"", doc.Range.Fields[0].Result);

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