    public class Run 
    extends Inline

Represents a run of characters with the same font formatting.

All text of the document is stored in runs of text.

Run can only be a child of Paragraph or inline StructuredDocumentTag.

Example:

Shows how to add a formatted run of text to a document using the object model.
Document doc = new Document();

// Create a new run of text
Run run = new Run(doc, "Hello");

// Specify character formatting for the run of text
Font f = run.getFont();
f.setName("Courier New");
f.setSize(36.0);
f.setHighlightColor(Color.YELLOW);

// Append the run of text to the end of the first paragraph
// in the body of the first section of the document
doc.getFirstSection().getBody().getFirstParagraph().appendChild(run);

Example:

Shows how to construct an Aspose Words document node by node.
Document doc = new Document();

// A newly created blank document still comes one section, one body and one paragraph
// Calling this method will remove all those nodes to completely empty the document
doc.removeAllChildren();

// This document now has no composite nodes that content can be added to
// If we wish to edit it, we will need to repopulate its node collection,
// which we will start to do with by creating a new Section node
Section section = new Section(doc);

// Append the section to the document
doc.appendChild(section);

// Lets set some properties for the section
section.getPageSetup().setSectionStart(SectionStart.NEW_PAGE);
section.getPageSetup().setPaperSize(PaperSize.LETTER);

// A section needs a body, which will contain all other nodes that can be edited
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.getParagraphFormat().setStyleName("Heading 1");
para.getParagraphFormat().setAlignment(ParagraphAlignment.CENTER);

// Now we can begin adding content to the document
Run run = new Run(doc);
run.setText("Hello World!");
run.getFont().setColor(Color.RED);
para.appendChild(run);

Assert.assertEquals("Hello World!" + ControlChar.SECTION_BREAK_CHAR, doc.getText());

doc.save(getArtifactsDir() + "Section.CreateFromScratch.docx");

Example:

Shows how to add, update and delete child nodes from a CompositeNode's child collection.
Document doc = new Document();

// An empty document has one paragraph by default
Assert.assertEquals(1, doc.getFirstSection().getBody().getParagraphs().getCount());

// A paragraph is a composite node because it can contain runs, which are another type of node
Paragraph paragraph = doc.getFirstSection().getBody().getFirstParagraph();
Run paragraphText = new Run(doc, "Initial text. ");
paragraph.appendChild(paragraphText);

// We will place these 3 children into the main text of our paragraph
Run run1 = new Run(doc, "Run 1. ");
Run run2 = new Run(doc, "Run 2. ");
Run run3 = new Run(doc, "Run 3. ");

// We initialized them but not in our paragraph yet
Assert.assertEquals("Initial text.", paragraph.getText().trim());

// Insert run2 before initial paragraph text. This will be at the start of the paragraph
paragraph.insertBefore(run2, paragraphText);

// Insert run3 after initial paragraph text. This will be at the end of the paragraph
paragraph.insertAfter(run3, paragraphText);

// Insert run1 before every other child node. run2 was the start of the paragraph, now it will be run1
paragraph.prependChild(run1);

Assert.assertEquals("Run 1. Run 2. Initial text. Run 3.", paragraph.getText().trim());
Assert.assertEquals(4, paragraph.getChildNodes(NodeType.ANY, true).getCount());

// Access the child node collection and update/delete children
((Run) paragraph.getChildNodes(NodeType.RUN, true).get(1)).setText("Updated run 2. ");
paragraph.getChildNodes(NodeType.RUN, true).remove(paragraphText);

Assert.assertEquals("Run 1. Updated run 2. Run 3.", paragraph.getText().trim());
Assert.assertEquals(3, paragraph.getChildNodes(NodeType.ANY, true).getCount());

      • Run

        public Run(DocumentBase doc)
        Initializes a new instance of the Run class.

        When Run is created, it belongs to the specified document, but is not yet part of the document and ParentNode is null.

        To append Run to the document use InsertAfter or InsertBefore on the paragraph where you want the run inserted.

        Parameters:

      • 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:

        Exports the content of a node to String in HTML format.
        Document doc = new Document(getMyDir() + "Document.docx");

        Assert.assertEquals("<p style=\"margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:8pt; line-height:108%; font-size:12pt\">" +
                "<span style=\"font-family:'Times New Roman'\">Hello World!</span>" +
                "</p>", node.toString(SaveFormat.HTML));
        
        // We can also modify the result of this conversion using a SaveOptions object
        HtmlSaveOptions saveOptions = new HtmlSaveOptions();

        Assert.assertEquals("<p style=\"margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:8pt; line-height:108%\">" +

                "</p>", node.toString(saveOptions));

        Example:

        Shows the difference between calling the GetText and ToString methods on a node.
        Document doc = new Document();
        
        DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
        builder.insertField("MERGEFIELD Field");
        
        // GetText will retrieve the visible text as well as field codes and special characters.
        Assert.assertEquals("\u0013MERGEFIELD Field\u0014«Field»\u0015\f", doc.getText());
        
        // ToString will give us the document's appearance if saved to a passed save format.
        Assert.assertEquals("«Field»\r\n", doc.toString(SaveFormat.TEXT));
