Name Type Description
pos DocumentPosition

A DocumentPosition object that specifies the position into which you can insert a new section.


Type Description

A Section object that is the section in the document located before the newly inserted section.


When you create a new section, it is automatically linked to the previous section and content from that section’s header is automatically inserted into the second section header. Remove this content before inserting new content in the header. Call the SubDocument.Delete() method to clear the header.


The following code sample shows how to insert a continuous section break after the specified paragraph:

using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit;
using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native;

using (var wordProcessor = new RichEditDocumentServer())

    Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
    var section = document.InsertSection(document.Paragraphs[4].Range.End);

    // Retrieve the inserted section
    var sectionPosition = document.CreatePosition(section.Range.End.ToInt() + 1);
    Section insertedSection = document.GetSection(sectionPosition);
    insertedSection.StartType = SectionStartType.Continuous;

    wordProcessor.SaveDocument("Alice_formatted.docx", DocumentFormat.OpenXml);
