I've tried the transformDocument and docx2txt functions and succesfully transformed docx file to plain text.

But is there any way to get more information? For example what is headlines, font-sizes, font-weights, aligns, etc?

My goal is to get it into php-array with all data, so .txt file is not optimal.

Thanks for any advice. :)

Thank you, I am trying it out.

Getting error:

Call to a member function getAttribute() on null in <b>xxx/phpdocx-advanced-9.0/classes/CreateDocx.php</b> on line <b>5417</b><br />

Using this:

$docx = new CreateDocxFromTemplate($docx_file);
$referenceNode = [
   'type' => 'paragraph'
];
$styles = $docx->getWordStyles($referenceNode);

 

Checked the code and it looks like this:

   $pStyle = $nodeXPath->query($query, $contentNode);
if ($pStyle > 0) {
    $pStyleName = $pStyle->item(0)->getAttribute('w:val');

Did try a var_dump on $pStyle and this is the result:

object(DOMNodeList)#391 (1) {
  ["length"]=>
  int(0)
}
 

So looks like error in code using:

if ($pStyle > 0) {

 

Is this maybe fixed in 9.5?

Hello,

phpdocx 9.5 includes the following changes in those lines:

$pStyle = $nodeXPath->query($query, $contentNode);
if ($pStyle->length > 0) {

Regards.

Figured I just test 9.5... and it is fixed there!

Feel free to remove this comment + my bug report comment!! :)

Sorry, some follow up questions.

I sucessfully get all the styles using getWordStyles, and I also got all text content using getWordContents. But I do not understand how I will match the content with the style. 

If I filter the styles using "contains" the same content could come multiplie times, so I wont know what is what then.

Example:

$referenceNode = [
   'type' => 'paragraph',
   'contains' => 'test text'
];
$styles = $docx->getWordStyles($referenceNode);

"test text" might match mutliplie paragraphs.

 

Hoping for advice :)

Sorry for answering my self! ;) Looks like I can use same key!

   $referenceNode = [
      'type' => 'paragraph'
   ];
   $styles = $docx->getWordStyles($referenceNode);
$contents = $docx->getWordContents($referenceNode);
foreach ($contents as $key => $item) {
   if (empty($styles[$key]['pStyle']['val'])) {
      continue;
   }
   $style = $styles[$key]['pStyle']['val'];
   echo $style.' - ';
   echo $item."\n";
}

So instead new follow up question.

From looking at the style, how can I see that it is a headline and what depth it has? :o

Hello,

Headings are applied using w:outlineLvl tags, and the attribute w:val sets the depth (w:val value + 1):

http://officeopenxml.com/WPparagraphProperties.php

It's set as a pPr style in custom styles and/or inline styles.

Regards.
