  • I'm using word add-in from visual studio, c# language. this code works for me, but how am I able to delete a bibliography that I inserted into my word document? knowing that this is my code for the insert bibliography button

    private void BtnAddReference_Click(object sender, RibbonControlEventArgs e) { using (var frm = new FrmAddCitation()) { frm.ShowDialog(); var id = frm.SelectedId; if (id > 0) { using (var db = new MarjieiDb()) { var item = (from doc in db.ReferenceDocuments where doc.DocumentId == id select doc).FirstOrDefault(); //MessageBox.Show($"Selected document:\n[{b?.DocumentId}] {b?.Title}", @"DOCUMENT", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information); if (item == null) return; var wdoc = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveDocument; var tag = "Cit01"; var strXml = $"<b:Source xmlns:b=\"\">" + $"<b:Tag>{tag}</b:Tag>" + $"<b:SourceType>{item.DocumentType}</b:SourceType>" + $"<b:Author><b:Author><b:NameList><b:Person><b:Last>{item.Author}</b:Last><b:First></b:First></b:Person></b:NameList></b:Author></b:Author>" + $"<b:Title>{item.Title}</b:Title>" + $"<b:Year>{item.PublishYear}</b:Year>" + $"<b:City></b:City>" + $"<b:Publisher>{item.Publisher}</b:Publisher>" + $"</b:Source>"; wdoc.Bibliography.Sources.Add(strXml); wdoc.Fields.Add(wdoc.Range(), WdFieldType.wdFieldCitation, tag); var citation = new Citation { CitationIndex = 0,

               Style = cboStyle.SelectedItem.Label,
                            citation.WordFileId = Convert.ToInt32(db.InsertWithIdentity(citation));

  • Hi mum_0101,

    For deleting the Bibliography, you need to delete the field which reference the bibliography first.

                var wdoc = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveDocument;
                var tag = "Cit01";
                var fields = wdoc.Fields.Cast<Field>().Where(f => f.Code.Text.Contains(tag)).ToList();
                foreach (var field in fields)
                var source = wdoc.Bibliography.Sources.Cast<Source>().Where(s => s.Tag == tag).FirstOrDefault();

    Best Regards,
