DocumentManager.FindDocument(String) Method

Finds a document by its identifier.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web.Office

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v21.1.dll


public static IDocumentInfo FindDocument(
    string documentId


Name Type Description
documentId String

A string value specifying the document identifier.


Type Description

A IDocumentInfo object defining the found document.


The method returns an IDocumentInfo class instance that you can use to access information about the target document and operate it on the local web-server.


If you use an office document state provider in your web application, the returned IDocumentInfo object can only be used to close the target document using the IDocumentInfo.Close method. This behavior is caused by the fact that this method’s overload does not download the target document to the local web-server. Call this method’s overload with the loadRemoteState parameter set to true to download the target document’s and access all the IDocumentInfo object’s members.
