The document format.

An instance of an object derived from DocumentOptions. The remarks section lists the various document formats and the derived object that can be used.


You cannot use the DocumentOptions class directly. Instead, use one of the derived classes to get and set the options associated with a document format. The following table list the document formats and the DocumentOptions derived class associated with it:

Format (the value of format) Class
DocumentFormat.Ltd LtdDocumentOptions
DocumentFormat.Pdf PdfDocumentOptions
DocumentFormat.Doc DocDocumentOptions
DocumentFormat.Rtf RtfDocumentOptions
DocumentFormat.Html HtmlDocumentOptions
DocumentFormat.Text TextDocumentOptions
DocumentFormat.Emf EmfDocumentOptions
DocumentFormat.Xps XpsDocumentOptions
DocumentFormat.Docx DocxDocumentOptions
DocumentFormat.Xls XpsDocumentOptions
DocumentFormat.AltoXml AltoXmlDocumentOptions

To change the options used with a particular format, perform the following steps:

  1. Use the DocumentWriter.GetOptions method of the DocumentWriter object you are using passing DocumentFormat desired in to the format parameter. Note that the resulting object from the base DocumentOptions class needs to be cast to appropriate derived class described in the table above.
  2. Use the various derived class properties to change the options.
  3. Use DocumentWriter.SetOptions to set the new options in the engine.
  4. Now you can call the DocumentWriter.BeginDocument method (with the desired DocumentFormat for the format parameter) to create a new document and add the pages.


For an example, refer to DocumentWriter.
