I want to use DocIO to changethe FontStyle Attribute Hidden to unhidden. How can I do that ?

The other possibility would be to extract a text between to hidden text and save it in Word Format (doc). Would this be possible ?

Hi Oliver,

Yes, it is possible to show the already hidden characters by using the Character format Hidden property. Please refer the below code snippet how it can be done


WordDocument doc = new WordDocument("sample.doc");

//Enumerate the document elements starting from sections
foreach (IWSection sec in doc.Sections)
foreach (IWParagraph para in sec.Paragraphs)
for (int i = 0; i < para.ChildEntities.Count; i++)
Syncfusion.DocIO.DLS.IParagraphItem pItem = para[i] as Syncfusion.DocIO.DLS.IParagraphItem;

if (pItem is WTextRange)
WTextRange doctext = pItem as WTextRange;
if (doctext.CharacterFormat.Hidden == true)
doctext.CharacterFormat.Hidden = false;


Please try this code and let us know if this helps you.

Best Regards,
