Provides data for the CssSaving event.

To learn more, visit the Save a Document documentation article.

public class CssSavingArgs


CssStream { get; set; }Allows to specify the stream where the CSS information will be saved to.
Document { get; }Gets the document object that is currently being saved.
IsExportNeeded { get; set; }Allows to specify whether the CSS will be exported to file and embedded to HTML document. Default is true. When this property is false, the CSS information will not be saved to a CSS file and will not be embedded to HTML document.
KeepCssStreamOpen { get; set; }Specifies whether Aspose.Words should keep the stream open or close it after saving an CSS information.


By default, when Aspose.Words saves a document to HTML, it saves CSS information inline (as a value of the style attribute on every element).

CssSavingArgs allows to save CSS information into file by providing your own stream object.

To save CSS into stream, use the CssStream property.

To suppress saving CSS into a file and embedding to HTML document use the IsExportNeeded property.


Shows how to work with CSS stylesheets that an HTML conversion creates.

public void ExternalCssFilenames()
    Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Rendering.docx");

    // Create an "HtmlFixedSaveOptions" object, which we can pass to the document's "Save" method
    // to modify how we convert the document to HTML.
    HtmlSaveOptions options = new HtmlSaveOptions();

    // Set the "CssStylesheetType" property to "CssStyleSheetType.External" to
    // accompany a saved HTML document with an external CSS stylesheet file.
    options.CssStyleSheetType = CssStyleSheetType.External;

    // Below are two ways of specifying directories and filenames for output CSS stylesheets.
    // 1 -  Use the "CssStyleSheetFileName" property to assign a filename to our stylesheet:
    options.CssStyleSheetFileName = ArtifactsDir + "SavingCallback.ExternalCssFilenames.css";

    // 2 -  Use a custom callback to name our stylesheet:
    options.CssSavingCallback =
        new CustomCssSavingCallback(ArtifactsDir + "SavingCallback.ExternalCssFilenames.css", true, false);

    doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "SavingCallback.ExternalCssFilenames.html", options);
