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


public virtual DocumentBase Document { get; }

Property Value

Type: DocumentBase


The node always belongs to a document even if it has just been created and not yet added to the tree, or if it has been removed from the tree.


Shows how to create a node and set its owning document.
// Open a file from disk
Document doc = new Document();

// Creating a new node of any type requires a document passed into the constructor
Paragraph para = new Paragraph(doc);

// The new paragraph node does not yet have a parent
Console.WriteLine("Paragraph has no parent node: " + (para.ParentNode == null));

// But the paragraph node knows its document
Console.WriteLine("Both nodes' documents are the same: " + (para.Document == doc));

// The fact that a node always belongs to a document allows us to access and modify 
// properties that reference the document-wide data such as styles or lists
para.ParagraphFormat.StyleName = "Heading 1";

// Now add the paragraph to the main text of the first section

// The paragraph node is now a child of the Body node
Console.WriteLine("Paragraph has a parent node: " + (para.ParentNode != null));
