TXTextControl.TextPartCollection Class

An instance of the TextPartCollection class contains all text parts in a TX Text Control document. A text part can either be the document's main text, a text frame or a header or footer. A text frame is represented through a TextFrame object, a header or footer through a HeaderFooter object and the document's main text is represented through a MainText object. A TextPartCollection object contains all these objects in a geometric order. The first object in the collection is the main text, followed by all text frames in geometric order. At the end of the collection all headers and footers are contained also geometrically ordered. All objects in a text part collection implement the IFormattedText interface. The collection can be obtained with the TextControl.TextParts, WPF.TextControl.TextParts or ServerTextControl.TextParts property. The TextPartCollection class implements the IEnumerable and the ICollection interfaces.
