SpecialChar class

SpecialChar class

Base class for special characters in the document. To learn more, visit the Aspose.Words Document Object Model (DOM) documentation article.

A Microsoft Word document can include a number of special characters that represent fields, form fields, shapes, OLE objects, footnotes etc. For the list of special characters see ControlChar.

SpecialChar is an inline-node and can only be a child of Paragraph.

SpecialChar char is used as a base class for more specific classes that represent special characters that Aspose.Words provides programmatic access for. The SpecialChar class is also used itself to represent special character for which Aspose.Words does not provide detailed programmatic access.
