Class DocumentBase

Provides the abstract base class for a main document and a glossary document of a Word document.

Aspose.Words represents a Word document as a tree of nodes. DocumentBase is a root node of the tree that contains all other nodes of the document.

DocumentBase also stores document-wide information such as Styles and Lists that the tree nodes might refer to.

Example:

Shows how to initialize the subclasses of DocumentBase.
Document doc = new Document();

Assert.assertEquals(DocumentBase.class, doc.getClass().getSuperclass());

GlossaryDocument glossaryDoc = new GlossaryDocument();
doc.setGlossaryDocument(glossaryDoc);

Assert.assertEquals(DocumentBase.class, glossaryDoc.getClass().getSuperclass());

      • getBackgroundShape/setBackgroundShape

        public Shape getBackgroundShape() / public void setBackgroundShape(Shape value)
        
        Gets or sets the background shape of the document. Can be null.

        Microsoft Word allows only a shape that has its ShapeBase.ShapeType property equal to ShapeType.RECTANGLE to be used as a background shape for a document.

        Microsoft Word supports only the fill properties of a background shape. All other properties are ignored.

        Setting this property to a non-null value will also set the ViewOptions.DisplayBackgroundShape to true.

        Example:

        Shows how to set a background shape for every page of a document.
        Document doc = new Document();
        
        Assert.assertNull(doc.getBackgroundShape());
        
        // The only shape type that we can use as a background is a rectangle.
        Shape shapeRectangle = new Shape(doc, ShapeType.RECTANGLE);
        
        // There are two ways of using this shape as a page background.
        // 1 -  A flat color:
        shapeRectangle.setFillColor(Color.BLUE);
        doc.setBackgroundShape(shapeRectangle);
        
        doc.save(getArtifactsDir() + "DocumentBase.BackgroundShape.FlatColor.docx");
        
        // 2 -  An image:
        shapeRectangle = new Shape(doc, ShapeType.RECTANGLE);
        shapeRectangle.getImageData().setImage(getImageDir() + "Transparent background logo.png");
        
        // Adjust the image's appearance to make it more suitable as a watermark.
        shapeRectangle.getImageData().setContrast(0.2);
        shapeRectangle.getImageData().setBrightness(0.7);
        
        doc.setBackgroundShape(shapeRectangle);
        
        Assert.assertTrue(doc.getBackgroundShape().hasImage());
        
        // Microsoft Word does not support shapes with images as backgrounds,
        // but we can still see these backgrounds in other save formats such as .pdf.
        doc.save(getArtifactsDir() + "DocumentBase.BackgroundShape.Image.pdf");

      • getChildNodes

        public NodeCollection getChildNodes()
        
        Gets all immediate child nodes of this node.

        Note, ChildNodes is equivalent to calling GetChildNodes(NodeType.Any, false) and creates and returns a new collection every time it is accessed.

        If there are no child nodes, this property returns an empty collection.

        Example:

        Shows how to traverse through a composite node's collection of child nodes.
        Document doc = new Document();
        
        // Add two runs and one shape as child nodes to the first paragraph of this document.
        Paragraph paragraph = (Paragraph) doc.getChild(NodeType.PARAGRAPH, 0, true);
        paragraph.appendChild(new Run(doc, "Hello world! "));
        
        Shape shape = new Shape(doc, ShapeType.RECTANGLE);
        shape.setWidth(200.0);
        shape.setHeight(200.0);
        // Note that the 'CustomNodeId' is not saved to an output file and exists only during the node lifetime.
        shape.setCustomNodeId(100);
        shape.setWrapType(WrapType.INLINE);
        paragraph.appendChild(shape);
        
        paragraph.appendChild(new Run(doc, "Hello again!"));
        
        // Iterate through the paragraph's collection of immediate children,
        // and print any runs or shapes that we find within.
        NodeCollection children = paragraph.getChildNodes();
        
        Assert.assertEquals(3, paragraph.getChildNodes().getCount());
        
        for (Node child : (Iterable<Node>) children)
            switch (child.getNodeType()) {
                case NodeType.RUN:

                    System.out.println("\t\"{child.GetText().Trim()}\"");
                    break;
                case NodeType.SHAPE:
                    Shape childShape = (Shape) child;
                    System.out.println("Shape:");
                    System.out.println("\t{childShape.ShapeType}, {childShape.Width}x{childShape.Height}");
                    break;
            }
      • getCount

        public int getCount()
        
        Gets the number of immediate children of this node.

        Example:

        Shows how to add, update and delete child nodes in a CompositeNode's collection of children.
        Document doc = new Document();
        
        // An empty document, by default, has one paragraph.
        Assert.assertEquals(1, doc.getFirstSection().getBody().getParagraphs().getCount());
        
        // Composite nodes such as our paragraph can contain other composite and inline nodes as children.
        Paragraph paragraph = doc.getFirstSection().getBody().getFirstParagraph();
        Run paragraphText = new Run(doc, "Initial text. ");
        paragraph.appendChild(paragraphText);
        
        // Create three more run nodes.
        Run run1 = new Run(doc, "Run 1. ");
        Run run2 = new Run(doc, "Run 2. ");
        Run run3 = new Run(doc, "Run 3. ");
        
        // The document body will not display these runs until we insert them into a composite node
        // that itself is a part of the document's node tree, as we did with the first run.
        // We can determine where the text contents of nodes that we insert
        // appears in the document by specifying an insertion location relative to another node in the paragraph.
        Assert.assertEquals("Initial text.", paragraph.getText().trim());
        
        // Insert the second run into the paragraph in front of the initial run.
        paragraph.insertBefore(run2, paragraphText);
        
        Assert.assertEquals("Run 2. Initial text.", paragraph.getText().trim());
        
        // Insert the third run after the initial run.
        paragraph.insertAfter(run3, paragraphText);
        
        Assert.assertEquals("Run 2. Initial text. Run 3.", paragraph.getText().trim());
        
        // Insert the first run to the start of the paragraph's child nodes collection.
        paragraph.prependChild(run1);
        
        Assert.assertEquals("Run 1. Run 2. Initial text. Run 3.", paragraph.getText().trim());

        Assert.assertEquals(3, paragraph.getChildNodes(NodeType.ANY, true).getCount());
      • getCustomNodeId/setCustomNodeId

        public int getCustomNodeId() / public void setCustomNodeId(int value)
        
        Specifies custom node identifier.

        Default is zero.

        This identifier can be set and used arbitrarily. For example, as a key to get external data.

        Important note, specified value is not saved to an output file and exists only during the node lifetime.

        Example:

        Shows how to traverse through a composite node's collection of child nodes.
        Document doc = new Document();
        
        // Add two runs and one shape as child nodes to the first paragraph of this document.

      • getFirstChild

        public Node getFirstChild()
        
        Gets the first child of the node. If there is no first child node, a null is returned.

        Example:

        Shows how to use a node's NextSibling property to enumerate through its immediate children.
        Document doc = new Document(getMyDir() + "Paragraphs.docx");
        
        for (Node node = doc.getFirstSection().getBody().getFirstChild(); node != null; node = node.getNextSibling()) {

      • getFontInfos

        public FontInfoCollection getFontInfos()
        
        Provides access to properties of fonts used in this document.

        This collection of font definitions is loaded as is from the document. Font definitions might be optional, missing or incomplete in some documents.

        Do not rely on this collection to ascertain that a particular font is used in the document. You should only use this collection to get information about fonts that might be used in the document.

        Example:

        Shows how to print the details of what fonts are present in a document.
        Document doc = new Document(getMyDir() + "Embedded font.docx");
        
        FontInfoCollection allFonts = doc.getFontInfos();
        
        // Print all the used and unused fonts in the document.

      • getWarningCallback/setWarningCallback

        public IWarningCallback getWarningCallback() / public void setWarningCallback(IWarningCallback value)
        
        Called during various document processing procedures when an issue is detected that might result in data or formatting fidelity loss. Document may generate warnings at any stage of its existence, so it's important to setup warning callback as early as possible to avoid the warnings loss. E.g. such properties as Document.PageCount actually build the document layout which is used later for rendering, and the layout warnings may be lost if warning callback is specified just for the rendering calls later.

        Example:

      • accept

        public abstract boolean accept(DocumentVisitor visitor)
                                    throws java.lang.Exception
        Accepts a visitor.

        Enumerates over this node and all of its children. Each node calls a corresponding method on DocumentVisitor.

        For more info see the Visitor design pattern.

        Parameters:
        visitor - The visitor that will visit the nodes.
        Returns:
        True if all nodes were visited; false if DocumentVisitor stopped the operation before visiting all nodes.

      • appendChild

        public Node appendChild(Node newChild)
        Adds the specified node to the end of the list of child nodes for this 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(com.aspose.words.Node,boolean,int) to import the node to the current document. The imported node can then be inserted into the current document.

        Parameters:
        newChild - The node to add.
        Returns:
        The node added.

        Example:

        Shows how to construct an Aspose.Words document by hand.
        Document doc = new Document();
        
        // A blank document contains one section, one body and one paragraph.
        // Call the "RemoveAllChildren" method to remove all those nodes,
        // and end up with a document node with no children.
        doc.removeAllChildren();
        
        // This document now has no composite child nodes that we can add content to.
        // If we wish to edit it, we will need to repopulate its node collection.
        // First, create a new section, and then append it as a child to the root document node.
        Section section = new Section(doc);
        doc.appendChild(section);
        
        // Set some page setup properties for the section.
        section.getPageSetup().setSectionStart(SectionStart.NEW_PAGE);
        section.getPageSetup().setPaperSize(PaperSize.LETTER);
        
        // A section needs a body, which will contain and display all its contents
        // on the page between the section's header and footer.
        Body body = new Body(doc);
        section.appendChild(body);
        
        // Create a paragraph, set some formatting properties, and then append it as a child to the body.
        Paragraph para = new Paragraph(doc);
        
        para.getParagraphFormat().setStyleName("Heading 1");
        para.getParagraphFormat().setAlignment(ParagraphAlignment.CENTER);
        
        body.appendChild(para);
        
        // Finally, add some content to do the document. Create a run,
        // set its appearance and contents, and then append it as a child to the paragraph.
        Run run = new Run(doc);
        run.setText("Hello World!");
        run.getFont().setColor(Color.RED);
        para.appendChild(run);

        doc.save(getArtifactsDir() + "Section.CreateManually.docx");
      • deepClone

        public Node deepClone(boolean isCloneChildren)
        Creates a duplicate of the node.

        This method serves as a copy constructor for nodes. The cloned node has no parent, but belongs to the same document as the original node.

        This method always performs a deep copy of the node. The isCloneChildren parameter specifies whether to perform copy all child nodes as well.

        Parameters:
        isCloneChildren - True to recursively clone the subtree under the specified node; false to clone only the node itself.
        Returns:
        The cloned node.

        Example:

        Shows how to clone a composite node.
        Document doc = new Document();
        Paragraph para = doc.getFirstSection().getBody().getFirstParagraph();
        para.appendChild(new Run(doc, "Hello world!"));
        
        // Below are two ways of cloning a composite node.
        // 1 -  Create a clone of a node, and create a clone of each of its child nodes as well.
        Node cloneWithChildren = para.deepClone(true);
        
        Assert.assertTrue(((CompositeNode) cloneWithChildren).hasChildNodes());
        Assert.assertEquals("Hello world!", cloneWithChildren.getText().trim());
        
        // 2 -  Create a clone of a node just by itself without any children.
        Node cloneWithoutChildren = para.deepClone(false);
        
        Assert.assertFalse(((CompositeNode) cloneWithoutChildren).hasChildNodes());
        Assert.assertEquals("", cloneWithoutChildren.getText().trim());
      • getAncestor

        public CompositeNode getAncestor(int ancestorType)
        Gets the first ancestor of the specified NodeType.
        Parameters:
        ancestorType - A NodeType value. The node type of the ancestor to retrieve.
        Returns:
        The ancestor of the specified type or null if no ancestor of this type was found.

        Example:

        Shows how to find out if a tables are nested.
        public void calculateDepthOfNestedTables() throws Exception {
            Document doc = new Document(getMyDir() + "Nested tables.docx");

      • getChild

        public Node getChild(int nodeType, int index, boolean isDeep)
        Returns an Nth child node that matches the specified type.

        If index is out of range, a null is returned.

        Note that markup nodes (NodeType.STRUCTURED_DOCUMENT_TAG and NodeType.SMART_TAG) are traversed even when isDeep = false and GetChild is invoked for non-markup node type. For example if the first run in a para is wrapped in a StructuredDocumentTag, it will still be returned by GetChild(NodeType.Run, 0, false).
        Parameters:
        nodeType - A NodeType value. Specifies the type of the child node.
        index - Zero based index of the child node to select. Negative indexes are also allowed and indicate access from the end, that is -1 means the last node.
        isDeep - True to select from all child nodes recursively. False to select only among immediate children. See remarks for more info.
        Returns:
        The child node that matches the criteria or null if no matching node is found.

        Example:

        Shows how to traverse through a composite node's collection of child nodes.

      • getChildNodes

        public NodeCollection getChildNodes(int nodeType, boolean isDeep)
        Returns a live collection of child nodes that match the specified type.

        The collection of nodes returned by this method is always live.

        A live collection is always in sync with the document. For example, if you selected all sections in a document and enumerate through the collection deleting the sections, the section is removed from the collection immediately when it is removed from the document.

        Parameters:
        nodeType - A NodeType value. Specifies the type of nodes to select.
        isDeep - True to select from all child nodes recursively. False to select only among immediate children.
        Returns:

      • importNode

        public Node importNode(Node srcNode, boolean isImportChildren)

        Imports a node from another document to the current document.

        This method uses the ImportFormatMode.USE_DESTINATION_STYLES option to resolve formatting.

        Importing a node creates a copy of the source node belonging to the importing document. The returned node has no parent. The source node is not altered or removed from the original document.

        Before a node from another document can be inserted into this document, it must be imported. During import, document-specific properties such as references to styles and lists are translated from the original to the importing document. After the node was imported, it can be inserted into the appropriate place in the document using insertBefore(com.aspose.words.Node,com.aspose.words.Node) or insertAfter(com.aspose.words.Node,com.aspose.words.Node).

        If the source node already belongs to the destination document, then simply a deep clone of the source node is created.

        Parameters:
        srcNode - The node being imported.
        isImportChildren - True to import all child nodes recursively; otherwise, false.
        Returns:
        The cloned node that belongs to the current document.
        See Also:

      • importNode

        public Node importNode(Node srcNode, boolean isImportChildren, int importFormatMode)

        Imports a node from another document to the current document with an option to control formatting.

        This overload is useful to control how styles and list formatting are imported.

        Importing a node creates a copy of the source node belonging to the importing document. The returned node has no parent. The source node is not altered or removed from the original document.

        Before a node from another document can be inserted into this document, it must be imported. During import, document-specific properties such as references to styles and lists are translated from the original to the importing document. After the node was imported, it can be inserted into the appropriate place in the document using insertBefore(com.aspose.words.Node,com.aspose.words.Node) or insertAfter(com.aspose.words.Node,com.aspose.words.Node).

        If the source node already belongs to the destination document, then simply a deep clone of the source node is created.

        Parameters:
        srcNode - The node to imported.
        isImportChildren - True to import all child nodes recursively; otherwise, false.
        importFormatMode - A ImportFormatMode value. Specifies how to merge style formatting that clashes.
        Returns:
        The cloned, imported node. The node belongs to the destination document, but has no parent.

      • insertAfter

        public Node insertAfter(Node newChild, Node refChild)
        Inserts the specified node immediately after the specified reference node.

        If refChild is null, inserts newChild at the beginning of the list of child nodes.

        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(com.aspose.words.Node,boolean,int) to import the node to the current document. The imported node can then be inserted into the current document.

        Parameters:
        newChild - The Node to insert.
        refChild - The Node that is the reference node. The newNode is placed after the refNode.
