Public Function AppendChild ( newChild As Node ) As Node
public: Node^ AppendChild( Node^ newChild )
member AppendChild : newChild : Node -> Node
If the newChild is already in the tree, it is first removed.
If the node being inserted was created from another document, you should use ImportNode(Node, Boolean, ImportFormatMode) to import the node to the current document. The imported node can then be inserted into the current document.
// Create an "empty" document. Note that like in Microsoft Word, // the empty document has one section, body and one paragraph in it Document doc = new Document(); // This truly makes the document empty. No sections (not possible in Microsoft Word) doc.RemoveAllChildren(); // Create a new section node // Note that the section has not yet been added to the document, // but we have to specify the parent document Section section = new Section(doc); // Append the section to the document doc.AppendChild(section); // Lets set some properties for the section section.PageSetup.SectionStart = SectionStart.NewPage; section.PageSetup.PaperSize = PaperSize.Letter; // The section that we created is empty, lets populate it. The section needs at least the Body node Body body = new Body(doc); section.AppendChild(body); // The body needs to have at least one paragraph // Note that the paragraph has not yet been added to the document, // but we have to specify the parent document // The parent document is needed so the paragraph can correctly work // with styles and other document-wide information Paragraph para = new Paragraph(doc); body.AppendChild(para); // We can set some formatting for the paragraph para.ParagraphFormat.StyleName = "Heading 1"; para.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Center; // So far we have one empty paragraph in the document // The document is valid and can be saved, but lets add some text before saving // Create a new run of text and add it to our paragraph Run run = new Run(doc); run.Text = "Hello World!"; run.Font.Color = Color.Red; para.AppendChild(run); // As a matter of interest, you can retrieve text of the whole document and // see that \x000c is automatically appended. \x000c is the end of section character Console.WriteLine("Hello World!\x000c"); // Save the document doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Section.CreateFromScratch.doc");
