The range to convert to DOT format.


Type Description

The range content in DOT format.


If you work with a selection range, make sure that the GetDotBytes method is enclosed with the DocumentRange.BeginUpdateDocument - DocumentRange.EndUpdateDocument method pair. Otherwise, an incorrect document model might be selected, and the “Error: specified document position or range belongs to other document or subdocument” exception is thrown.

To retrieve section settings, make sure that the range contains the last section’s paragraph. Otherwise, the section settings are reset to default.

using (RichEditDocumentServer wordProcessor = new RichEditDocumentServer())
    Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
    byte[] bytes = document.GetDotBytes(document.Range);
    File.WriteAllBytes(@"D:\", bytes);
