SubDocument.GetDotBytes(DocumentRange, DotDocumentExporterOptions) Method

Exports the range content in DOT (Microsoft Word 97-2007 Template) format and returns a byte array with this content.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v20.2.Core.dll

Declaration

byte[] GetDotBytes(
    DocumentRange range,
    DotDocumentExporterOptions options
)
Function GetDotBytes(
    range As DocumentRange,
    options As DotDocumentExporterOptions
) As Byte()

Parameters

Name Type Description
range DocumentRange

The range to convert to DOT format.

options DotDocumentExporterOptions

An object that contains export options.

Returns

Type Description
Byte[]

The range content in DOT format.

Remarks

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())
{
    wordProcessor.LoadDocument("FirstLook.docx");
    Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
    DotDocumentExporterOptions exportOptions = wordProcessor.Options.Export.Dot;
    exportOptions.ExportedDocumentProperties = DocumentPropertyNames.None;
    byte[] bytes = document.GetDotBytes(document.Range, exportOptions);
    File.WriteAllBytes(@"D:\testdoc.dot", bytes);
}
