The following are possible values for an element accessor:

'name'A particular element name
name[i]The i-th subelement of the current element with the given name
[i]The i-th subelement of the current element
[last()]The last subelement of the current element
[last()-i]The subelement located at the last location minus i in the current element
name[@attrname="attrvalue"]The subelement containing a particular value for a given attribute (supports single AND double quotes)
..The parent of the current element

When XPath is set to a valid path, XElement points to the name of the element, with XParent, XNamespace, XPrefix, XChildName, XChildNamespace, XChildPrefix, XChildXText, and XText providing other properties of the element. The attributes of the current element are provided in the AttrName, AttrNamespace, AttrPrefix, and AttrValue properties.

Config is a generic method available in every control. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the control.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the control, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

Syntax

officedoccontrol.ParsePart 

Remarks

If the part specified by PartName exists, the corresponding physical file will be extracted from the archive and parsed as XML.

When extracting, an alternate location may be specified by trapping the event, and modifying FileDecompressedName and/or ExtractToPath. If the appropriate value of FileDecompressedName is set to an empty string, the file will not be written to disk. If WriteToProgressEvent is true, the file will still be decompressed, and the data may be extracted through the Progress event.

This event may also be trapped while compressing. FileCompressedName and FileDecompressedName may be changed.

You may set the Skip parameter to true in order to skip the file completely while compressing or extracting.

Sub officedoccontrol_Progress(Data As String, Filename As String, BytesProcessed As Long64, PercentProcessed As Integer)

Remarks

The Progress event is automatically fired as compression or decompression is performed. When WriteToProgressEvent is true, the output data is provided through the Data parameter, allowing for it to be streamed out.

Filename contains the name of the file being written. If no file is being written, Filename will contain an empty string, and the output data will be provided exclusively through this event.

BytesProcessed contains the total number of uncompressed bytes processed. PercentProcessed contains the percent of uncompressed bytes processed, corresponding roughly to the running time of the operation.

For Gzip extraction only, BytesProcessed and PercentProcessed will reflect the number of compressed bytes extracted, as it is generally impossible to predetermine the total uncompressed size.

If WriteToProgressEvent is false, Data will contain null.

SpecialSection Event (OfficeDoc Control)

Fired when a special section is encountered.

Syntax

Sub officedoccontrol_SpecialSection(SectionId As String, Text As String)

Remarks

The SpecialSection event is fired whenever a special section (such as <![ CDATA [ ..text... ]]>) is found in the document.

The full text of the special section is provided by the Text parameter, while the SectionId parameter provides the section identifier (e.g. "CDATA").

StartElement Event (OfficeDoc Control)

Fired when a begin-element tag is encountered in the document.

Syntax

Sub officedoccontrol_StartElement(Namespace As String, Element As String, QName As String, IsEmpty As Boolean)

Remarks

The StartElement event is fired when a begin-element tag is found in the document.

The element name is provided through the Element parameter. The attribute names and values (if any) are provided through the AttrName, AttrNamespace, AttrPrefix, and AttrValue properties.

The IsEmpty parameter is true when the event corresponds with an empty element declaration.

StartPrefixMapping Event (OfficeDoc Control)

Fired when entering the scope of a namespace declaration.

Syntax

Sub officedoccontrol_StartPrefixMapping(Prefix As String, URI As String)

Remarks

The EndPrefixMapping event is fired when leaving the scope of a namespace declaration.

Configuration Settings (OfficeDoc Control)

The control accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the control, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

OfficeDoc Configuration Settings

NormalizePartName:   Whether to normalize Part Names.

Sometimes the Part Names retrieved from a document will be of a format that is not directly usable in the PartName property when retrieving the part. For example: /ppt/slides/../media/image1.jpeg

When this option is set to True the component will automatically normalize these Part Names so that they can be directly used in the PartName property for retrieving the part. For example, the above would become: /ppt/media/image1.jpeg

The default is True.

RelationshipIsExternal[x]:   Whether the relationship part is internal or external.

Some relationships in an Office document may be external items, such as URLs and files on disk. These relationships are not directly accessible via ExtractPart. This configuration option will return "1" if the relationship at index "x" of the Relationship* arrays is an external part. Otherwise it will return "0"

Base Configuration Settings

CodePage:   The system code page used for Unicode to Multibyte translations.

The default code page is Unicode UTF-8 (65001).

UseInternalSecurityAPI:   Tells the control whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

By default the control will use the system security libraries to perform cryptographic functions where applicable. Setting this to tells the control to use the internal implementation instead of using the system's security API.

Trappable Errors (OfficeDoc Control)

Errors

The following errors may be generated by the control. Note that frequently the error message will contain more specific information than what is listed here.

Note that some non-fatal errors may be trapped and explicitly ignored in the Error event. This will allow the control to continue operation even in case of error.

OfficeDoc Errors
