public class FieldTA

Implements the TA field.
Defines the text and page number for a table of authorities entry, which is used by a TOA field.

Shows how to build and customize a table of authorities using TOA and TA fields.

    • Method Detail

      • getFieldCode

        public java.lang.String getFieldCode()
        Returns text between field start and field separator (or field end if there is no separator). Both field code and field result of child fields are included.

        Example:

        Inserts a field into a document using DocumentBuilder and FieldCode.
        Document doc = new Document();
        DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
        
        // Insert a simple Date field into the document.
        // When we insert a field through the DocumentBuilder class we can get the
        // special Field object which contains information about the field.
        Field dateField = builder.insertField("DATE \\* MERGEFORMAT");
        
        // Update this particular field in the document so we can get the FieldResult.
        dateField.update();
        
        // Display some information from this field.
        // The field result is where the last evaluated value is stored. This is what is displayed in the document
        // When field codes are not showing.

        // Finally let's completely remove the field from the document. This can easily be done by invoking the Remove method on the object.
        dateField.remove();

        Example:

        Shows how to get text between field start and field separator (or field end if there is no separator)
        Document doc = new Document(getMyDir() + "Field.FieldCode.docx");

        }
      • getFieldCode

        public java.lang.String getFieldCode(boolean includeChildFieldCodes)
        Returns text between field start and field separator (or field end if there is no separator).
        Parameters:
        includeChildFieldCodes - True if child field codes should be included.

        Example:

        Shows how to get text between field start and field separator (or field end if there is no separator)

      • remove

        public Node remove()
                   throws java.lang.Exception
        Removes the field from the document. Returns a node right after the field. If the field's end is the last child of its parent node, returns its parent paragraph. If the field is already removed, returns null.

        public void update(boolean ignoreMergeFormat)
                   throws java.lang.Exception
        Performs a field update. Throws if the field is being updated already.
        Parameters:
        ignoreMergeFormat - If true then direct field result formatting is abandoned, regardless of the MERGEFORMAT switch, otherwise normal update is performed.

        LoadOptions loadOptions = new LoadOptions();
        loadOptions.setPreserveIncludePictureField(true);
        
        Document doc = new Document(getMyDir() + "Field.UpdateFieldIgnoringMergeFormat.docx", loadOptions);
        
        for (Field field : doc.getRange().getFields()) {
            if (((field.getType()) == (FieldType.FIELD_INCLUDE_PICTURE))) {
                FieldIncludePicture includePicture = (FieldIncludePicture) field;
                includePicture.setSourceFullName(getImageDir() + "dotnet-logo.png");
