Description

This class is a low level representation of a field. This encompasses many objects in Word, such as merge fields, hyperlinks, TOC entries, etc. Fields are the generic form of what are contained in a Element's inline elements.

C#
vb.net

Remarks

To create a field, call the corresponding "insert" method for what you want to create (hyperlink, TOC entry, etc) on an Element or Position object.

To get an existing field, use the Element.GetElements() method and pass in the Element.Type.Field parameter to retrieve all fields.

The following sample demonstrates creating a field at the end of a new document and retrieving the first field of an existing document.
