Accept

OfficeMath.Accept method

Accepts a visitor.

public override bool Accept(DocumentVisitor visitor)
Parameter Type Description
visitor DocumentVisitor The visitor that will visit the nodes.

Return Value

True if all nodes were visited; false if DocumentVisitor stopped the operation before visiting all nodes.

Remarks

Enumerates over this node and all of its children. Each node calls a corresponding method on DocumentVisitor.

For more info see the Visitor design pattern.

Calls VisitOfficeMathStart, then calls Accept for all child nodes of the Office Math and calls VisitOfficeMathEnd at the end.

Examples

Shows how to print the node structure of every office math node in a document.

public void OfficeMathToText()
{
    Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "DocumentVisitor-compatible features.docx");
    OfficeMathStructurePrinter visitor = new OfficeMathStructurePrinter();

    // When we get a composite node to accept a document visitor, the visitor visits the accepting node,
    // and then traverses all the node's children in a depth-first manner.
    // The visitor can read and modify each visited node.
    doc.Accept(visitor);

    Console.WriteLine(visitor.GetText());
}

/// Creates a map in the form of a string of all encountered OfficeMath nodes and their children.
