MergeFieldImageDimensionUnit enumeration

Specifies an unit of an image dimension (i.e. the width or the height) used across a mail merge process.

public enum MergeFieldImageDimensionUnit

Values

Name Value Description
Point 0 The point (i.e. 1/72 inch).
Percent 1 The percent of the original image dimension value.

Examples

Shows how to set the dimensions of images as MERGEFIELDS accepts them during a mail merge.

{
    Document doc = new Document();

    // Insert a MERGEFIELD that will accept images from a source during a mail merge. Use the field code to reference
    // a column in the data source containing local system filenames of images we wish to use in the mail merge.
    DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
    FieldMergeField field = (FieldMergeField)builder.InsertField("MERGEFIELD Image:ImageColumn");

    // The data source should have such a column named "ImageColumn".
    Assert.AreEqual("Image:ImageColumn", field.FieldName);

    // Create a suitable data source.
    DataTable dataTable = new DataTable("Images");
    dataTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("ImageColumn"));
    dataTable.Rows.Add(ImageDir + "Logo.jpg");
    dataTable.Rows.Add(ImageDir + "Transparent background logo.png");
    dataTable.Rows.Add(ImageDir + "Enhanced Windows MetaFile.emf");

    // Configure a callback to modify the sizes of images at merge time, then execute the mail merge.
    doc.MailMerge.FieldMergingCallback = new MergedImageResizer(200, 200, MergeFieldImageDimensionUnit.Point);
    doc.MailMerge.Execute(dataTable);

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