Property Value

Type: Body


Body contains main text of the section.

Returns null if the section does not have a Body node among its children.


Clears main text from all sections from the document leaving the sections themselves.
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.

// 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);

// 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);

// This body has no children, so we cannot add runs to it yet.
Assert.AreEqual(0, doc.FirstSection.Body.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Any, true).Count);

// Call the "EnsureMinimum" to make sure that this body contains at least one empty paragraph. 

// Now, we can add runs to the body, and get the document to display them.
body.FirstParagraph.AppendChild(new Run(doc, "Hello world!"));

Assert.AreEqual("Hello world!", doc.GetText().Trim());
