Remarks

Implement the IDocumentFormatDetector interface to provide your own file format detection logic.

The code sample below implements the IDocumentFormatDetector interface and its Detect methods.

public class MyDocumentFormatDetector : IDocumentFormatDetector {
  public DocumentFormat Detect(string filePath) {
    if(!File.Exists(filePath)) {
      switch(Path.GetExtension(filePath)) {
        case ".rtf":
          return DocumentFormat.Rtf;
        case ".docx":
          return DocumentFormat.OpenXml;
        default:
          return DocumentFormat.PlainText;
      }
    } else {
      using(var stream = new FileStream(filePath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)) {
        return Detect(stream);
      }
    }
  }
  public DocumentFormat Detect(Stream stream) {
    if(!stream.CanSeek)
      return DocumentFormat.PlainText;
    stream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);
    var head = new byte[5];
    stream.Read(head, 0, head.Length);
    stream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);
    if(Encoding.ASCII.GetString(head, 0, 2) == "PK")
      return DocumentFormat.OpenXml;
    else if(Encoding.ASCII.GetString(head) == "{\\rtf")
      return DocumentFormat.Rtf;
    return DocumentFormat.PlainText;
  }
}
// Registers the MyDocumentFormatDetector in the application's services
public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services) {
  // ...
  services.AddSingleton<IDocumentFormatDetector>(new MyDocumentFormatDetector());
}
