Sets the specified repeat block's data source to a multidimensional (rectangular) array of objects.
tableAn 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]).
columnNamesA 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.
maxRowsSpecifies 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.
transposeIf 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].
SetRepeatBlockwill throw this exception if
Nothing(VB.NET) is passed to the method.
Introduced in build 8.4
SetRepeatBlockwill throw this exception if the
bookmarkhas been set to be removed.
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.
You can call SetRepeatBlock several times for a single instance of WordTemplate. The repeat block specified by the parameter
bookmark must exist in the template.
If you pass an empty data source to
SetRepeatBlock WordWriter will not include the specified repeat block in the generated Word file.
Not all Word features can be included in a repeat block:$body
