Sets the specified repeat block's data source to a multidimensional (rectangular) array of objects.
An object array of values to use as a data source. WordWriter will insert these values in the repeat block's merge fields. Objects in the array must not be arrays themselves. Objects in the array can be null. Each object in the data source array must have a corresponding field name in the array of field names. By default, the first dimension corresponds to row and the second to column (that is, Object[row,column]).
A string array of data source field names. These must be the same as the corresponding merge field names in the template.
The bookmark name of the template repeat block. The bookmark passed to SetRepeatBlock must exist in the template Word file. To see a list of template bookmark names:
- Open the template in Microsoft Word.
- Open the Edit menu.
- Select Go To...
- Select Bookmark.
- Under Enter bookmark name, open the drop-down list of bookmark names.
Specifies the maximum number of repetitions to write to the file. If Next fields are enabled (see EnableNEXTFields), then the number of rows imported from the data source is maxRows*(numberOfNextFields+1). If Next fields are not enabled the number of rows imported is equal to the number of repetitions written out. To write the maximum rows available, use the constant WordTemplate.ALL_ROWS.
If transpose is set to true, the array is treated as Object[column][row]. If transpose is set to false, the array is treated as Object[row][column].
SetRepeatBlock will throw this exception if null (C#) or Nothing (VB.NET) is passed to the method.
A repeat block is a fragment in the template document that will be repeated for each row in a data source. In the template document, repeat blocks are defined by Word bookmarks that contain merge fields.
If you pass an empty data source to SetRepeatBlock WordWriter will not include the specified repeat block in the generated Word file.
