DocumentBuilder.InsertNode method

Inserts a node before the cursor.

public void InsertNode(Node node)


Shows how to insert a linked image into a document.

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

string imageFileName = ImageDir + "Windows MetaFile.wmf";

// Below are two ways of applying an image to a shape so that it can display it.
// 1 -  Set the shape to contain the image.
Shape shape = new Shape(builder.Document, ShapeType.Image);
shape.WrapType = WrapType.Inline;


doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Image.CreateLinkedImage.Embedded.docx");

// Every image that we store in shape will increase the size of our document.
Assert.True(70000 < new FileInfo(ArtifactsDir + "Image.CreateLinkedImage.Embedded.docx").Length);


// 2 -  Set the shape to link to an image file in the local file system.
shape = new Shape(builder.Document, ShapeType.Image);
shape.WrapType = WrapType.Inline;
shape.ImageData.SourceFullName = imageFileName;

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Image.CreateLinkedImage.Linked.docx");

// Linking to images will save space and result in a smaller document.
// However, the document can only display the image correctly while
// the image file is present at the location that the shape's "SourceFullName" property points to.
Assert.True(10000 > new FileInfo(ArtifactsDir + "Image.CreateLinkedImage.Linked.docx").Length);
