HtmlFixedSaveOptionsResourcesFolder Property

Specifies the physical folder where resources (images, fonts, css) are saved when exporting a document to Html format. Default is null.

Namespace:  Aspose.Words.Saving
Assembly:  Aspose.Words (in Aspose.Words.dll) Version: 20.10.0


public string ResourcesFolder { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: String


Has effect only if ExportEmbeddedImages property is false.

When you save a Document in Html format, Aspose.Words needs to save all images embedded in the document as standalone files. ResourcesFolder allows you to specify where the images will be saved and ResourcesFolderAlias allows to specify how the image URIs will be constructed.

If you save a document into a file and provide a file name, Aspose.Words, by default, saves the images in the same folder where the document file is saved. Use ResourcesFolder to override this behavior.

If you save a document into a stream, Aspose.Words does not have a folder where to save the images, but still needs to save the images somewhere. In this case, you need to specify an accessible folder by using the ResourcesFolder property


Shows how to print the URIs of linked resources created during conversion of a document to fixed-form .html.
