Return Value

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

foreach (Field field in doc.Range.Fields)
    if (field.Type == FieldType.FieldIf)
        FieldIf fieldIf = (FieldIf)field;

        string fieldCode = fieldIf.GetFieldCode();

        if (containsNestedFields)
            fieldCode = fieldIf.GetFieldCode(true);
            fieldCode = fieldIf.GetFieldCode(false);
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

// 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
Console.WriteLine("FieldResult: {0}", dateField.Result);

// Display the field code which defines the behavior of the field. This can been seen in Microsoft Word by pressing ALT+F9
Console.WriteLine("FieldCode: {0}", dateField.GetFieldCode());

// The field type defines what type of field in the Document this is. In this case the type is "FieldDate" 
Console.WriteLine("FieldType: {0}", dateField.Type);

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