Represents a contiguous area in a document. To learn more, visit the Working with Ranges documentation article.
The document is represented by a tree of nodes and the nodes provide operations to work with the tree, but some operations are easier to perform if the document is treated as a contiguous sequence of text.
Range is a “facade” interface that provide methods that treat the document or portions of the document as “flat” text regardless of the fact that the document nodes are stored in a tree-like object model.
Range does not contain any text or nodes, it is merely a view or “window” over a fragment of a document.
|bookmarks||Returns a Range.bookmarks collection that represents all bookmarks in the range.|
|fields||Returns a Range.fields collection that represents all fields in the range.|
|form_fields||Returns a Range.form_fields collection that represents all form fields in the range.|
|revisions||Gets a collection of revisions (tracked changes) that exist in this range.|
|structured_document_tags||Returns a Range.structured_document_tags collection that represents all structured document tags in the range.|
|text||Gets the text of the range.|
|delete()||Deletes all characters of the range.|
|normalize_field_types()||Changes field type values FieldChar.field_type of FieldStart, FieldSeparator, FieldEnd in this range so that they correspond to the field types contained in the field codes.|
|replace(pattern, replacement)||Replaces all occurrences of a specified character string pattern with a replacement string.|
|replace(pattern, replacement, options)||Replaces all occurrences of a specified character string pattern with a replacement string.|
|replace_regex(pattern, replacement)||Replaces all occurrences of a character pattern specified by a regular expression with another string.|
|replace_regex(pattern, replacement, options)||Replaces all occurrences of a character pattern specified by a regular expression with another string.|
|to_document()||Constructs a new fully formed document that contains the range.|
|unlink_fields()||Unlinks fields in this range.|
|update_fields()||Updates the values of document fields in this range.|
Shows how to get the text contents of all the nodes that a range covers.
