Inserting a Field

You can insert fields automatically by using specific commands, such as InsertPageCountFieldCommand, InsertPageNumberFieldCommand or InsertTableOfContentsCommand. You can also insert fields manually using the InsertFieldCommand command (CTRL+F9).

To programmatically insert a field in the document, use the FieldCollection.Create method. It has two overloads - you can convert a document range to a field or insert a field with the specified codes into the specified position.
