Class FootnoteType

  • java.lang.Object
    • com.aspose.words.FootnoteType
public class FootnoteType 
extends java.lang.Object

Utility class containing constants. Specifies whether this is a footnote or an endnote.

Both footnotes and endnotes are represented by objects by the FOOTNOTE class. Use Footnote.FootnoteType to distinguish between footnotes and endnotes.

Example:

Shows how to reference text with a footnote and an endnote.
Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Insert some text and mark it with a footnote with the IsAuto attribute set to "true" by default,
// so the marker seen in the body text will be auto-numbered at "1",
// and the footnote will appear at the bottom of the page.
builder.write("This text will be referenced by a footnote.");
builder.insertFootnote(FootnoteType.FOOTNOTE, "Footnote comment regarding referenced text.");

// Insert more text and mark it with an endnote with a custom reference mark,
// which will be used in place of the number "2" and set "IsAuto" to false.
builder.write("This text will be referenced by an endnote.");
builder.insertFootnote(FootnoteType.ENDNOTE, "Endnote comment regarding referenced text.", "CustomMark");

// Footnotes always appear at the bottom of their referenced text,
// so this page break will not affect the footnote.
// On the other hand, endnotes are always at the end of the document
// so that this page break will push the endnote down to the next page.
builder.insertBreak(BreakType.PAGE_BREAK);

doc.save(getArtifactsDir() + "DocumentBuilder.InsertFootnote.docx");

Example:

Shows how to insert and customize footnotes.
Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Add text, and reference it with a footnote. This footnote will place a small superscript reference
// mark after the text that it references and create an entry below the main body text at the bottom of the page.
// This entry will contain the footnote's reference mark and the reference text,
// which we will pass to the document builder's "InsertFootnote" method.
builder.write("Main body text.");
Footnote footnote = builder.insertFootnote(FootnoteType.FOOTNOTE, "Footnote text.");

// If this property is set to "true", then our footnote's reference mark
// will be its index among all of the section's footnotes.
// This is the first footnote, so the reference mark will be "1".
Assert.assertTrue(footnote.isAuto());

// We can move the document builder inside the footnote to edit its reference text. 
builder.moveTo(footnote.getFirstParagraph());
builder.write(" More text added by a DocumentBuilder.");
builder.moveToDocumentEnd();

Assert.assertEquals(footnote.getParagraphs().get(0).toString(SaveFormat.TEXT).trim(), "Footnote text. More text added by a DocumentBuilder.");

builder.write(" More main body text.");
footnote = builder.insertFootnote(FootnoteType.FOOTNOTE, "Footnote text.");

// We can set a custom reference mark which the footnote will use instead of its index number.
footnote.setReferenceMark("RefMark");

Assert.assertFalse(footnote.isAuto());

// A bookmark with the "IsAuto" flag set to true will still show its real index
// even if previous bookmarks display custom reference marks, so this bookmark's reference mark will be a "3".
builder.write(" More main body text.");
footnote = builder.insertFootnote(FootnoteType.FOOTNOTE, "Footnote text.");

Assert.assertTrue(footnote.isAuto());

doc.save(getArtifactsDir() + "InlineStory.AddFootnote.docx");
