Name

Bookmark.Name property

Gets or sets the name of the bookmark.

public string Name { get; set; }

Remarks

Note that if you change the name of a bookmark to a name that already exists in the document, no error will be given and only the first bookmark will be stored when you save the document.

Examples

Shows how to insert a bookmark.

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

// A valid bookmark has a name, a BookmarkStart, and a BookmarkEnd node.
// Any whitespace in the names of bookmarks will be converted to underscores if we open the saved document with Microsoft Word. 
// If we highlight the bookmark's name in Microsoft Word via Insert -> Links -> Bookmark, and press "Go To",
// the cursor will jump to the text enclosed between the BookmarkStart and BookmarkEnd nodes.
builder.StartBookmark("My Bookmark");
builder.Write("Contents of MyBookmark.");
builder.EndBookmark("My Bookmark");

// Bookmarks are stored in this collection.
Assert.AreEqual("My Bookmark", doc.Range.Bookmarks[0].Name);

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Bookmarks.Insert.docx");

Shows how to add bookmarks and update their contents.

    // Bookmarks can be accessed in the bookmark collection by index or name, and their names can be updated.
    bookmarks[0].Name = $"{bookmarks[0].Name}_NewName";
    bookmarks["MyBookmark_2"].Text = $"Updated text contents of {bookmarks[1].Name}";

    // Print all bookmarks again to see updated values.
    PrintAllBookmarkInfo(bookmarks);
