Removes itself from the parent.

public void Remove()


Shows how to delete all shapes with images from a document.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Images.docx");
NodeCollection shapes = doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Shape, true);

Assert.AreEqual(9, shapes.OfType<Shape>().Count(s => s.HasImage));

foreach (Shape shape in shapes.OfType<Shape>())
    if (shape.HasImage) 

Assert.AreEqual(0, shapes.OfType<Shape>().Count(s => s.HasImage));

Shows how to remove all child nodes of a specific type from a composite node.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Tables.docx");

Assert.AreEqual(2, doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Table, true).Count);

Node curNode = doc.FirstSection.Body.FirstChild;

while (curNode != null)
    // Save the next sibling node as a variable in case we want to move to it after deleting this node.
    Node nextNode = curNode.NextSibling;

    // A section body can contain Paragraph and Table nodes.
    // If the node is a Table, remove it from the parent.
    if (curNode.NodeType == NodeType.Table)

    curNode = nextNode;

Assert.AreEqual(0, doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Table, true).Count);
