public INodeChangingCallback NodeChangingCallback { get; set; }

Examples

Shows how customize node changing with a callback.

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

    // Set the node changing callback to custom implementation,
    // then add/remove nodes to get it to generate a log.
    HandleNodeChangingFontChanger callback = new HandleNodeChangingFontChanger();
    doc.NodeChangingCallback = callback;

    builder.Writeln("Hello world!");
    builder.Writeln("Hello again!");
    builder.InsertField(" HYPERLINK \"https://www.google.com/\" ");
    builder.InsertShape(ShapeType.Rectangle, 300, 300);

    doc.Range.Fields[0].Remove();

    Console.WriteLine(callback.GetLog());

/// <summary>
/// Logs the date and time of each node insertion and removal.
/// Sets a custom font name/size for the text contents of Run nodes.
/// </summary>
