OneNote.SectionGroupCollection class

Represents a collection of section groups.

[ API set: OneNoteApi 1.1 ]

Extends
OfficeExtension.ClientObject

Properties

count

Returns the number of section groups in the collection. Read-only.

[ API set: OneNoteApi 1.1 ]

items

Gets the loaded child items in this collection.

Methods

getByName(name)

Gets the collection of section groups with the specified name.

[ API set: OneNoteApi 1.1 ]

getItem(index)

Gets a section group by ID or by its index in the collection. Read-only.

[ API set: OneNoteApi 1.1 ]

getItemAt(index)

Gets a section group on its position in the collection.

[ API set: OneNoteApi 1.1 ]

load(option)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call "context.sync()" before reading the properties.

toJSON()
track()

Track the object for automatic adjustment based on surrounding changes in the document. This call is a shorthand for context.trackedObjects.add(thisObject). If you are using this object across ".sync" calls and outside the sequential execution of a ".run" batch, and get an "InvalidObjectPath" error when setting a property or invoking a method on the object, you needed to have added the object to the tracked object collection when the object was first created.

untrack()

Release the memory associated with this object, if it has previously been tracked. This call is shorthand for context.trackedObjects.remove(thisObject). Having many tracked objects slows down the host application, so please remember to free any objects you add, once you're done using them. You will need to call "context.sync()" before the memory release takes effect.

Returns

Examples

OneNote.run(function (context) {

    // Get the section groups that are direct children of the current notebook.
    var sectionGroups = context.application.getActiveNotebook().sectionGroups;

    // Queue a command to load the section groups. 
    // For best performance, request specific properties.
    sectionGroups.load("id"); 

    // Get the section groups with the specified name.
    var labsSectionGroups = sectionGroups.getByName("Labs");

    // Queue a command to load the section groups with the specified properties.
    labsSectionGroups.load("id,name"); 

    // Run the queued commands, and return a promise to indicate task completion.
    return context.sync()
        .then(function () {

            // Iterate through the collection or access items individually by index.
            if (labsSectionGroups.items.length > 0) {
                console.log("Section group name: " + labsSectionGroups.items[0].name);
                console.log("Section group ID: " + labsSectionGroups.items[0].id);
            }
        });
})
.catch(function(error) {
    console.log("Error: " + error);
    if (error instanceof OfficeExtension.Error) {
        console.log("Debug info: " + JSON.stringify(error.debugInfo));
    }
});

getItem(index)

Gets a section group by ID or by its index in the collection. Read-only.

[ API set: OneNoteApi 1.1 ]

getItem(index: number | string): OneNote.SectionGroup;

Parameters

index
number | string

The ID of the section group, or the index location of the section group in the collection.

Returns

getItemAt(index)

Gets a section group on its position in the collection.

[ API set: OneNoteApi 1.1 ]

getItemAt(index: number): OneNote.SectionGroup;

Parameters

index
number

Index value of the object to be retrieved. Zero-indexed.

Returns

load(option)

Queues up a command to load the specified properties of the object. You must call "context.sync()" before reading the properties.

load(option?: string | string[]): OneNote.SectionGroupCollection;

Parameters

option
string | string[]

A comma-delimited string or an array of strings that specify the properties to load.

Returns

Remarks

In addition to this signature, this method has the following signatures:

load(option?: { select?: string; expand?: string; }): OneNote.SectionGroupCollection - Where option.select is a comma-delimited string that specifies the properties to load, and options.expand is a comma-delimited string that specifies the navigation properties to load.

load(option?: { select?: string; expand?: string; top?: number; skip?: number }): OneNote.SectionGroupCollection - Only available on collection types. It is similar to the preceding signature. Option.top specifies the maximum number of collection items that can be included in the result. Option.skip specifies the number of items that are to be skipped and not included in the result. If option.top is specified, the result set will start after skipping the specified number of items.

Examples

OneNote.run(function (context) {

    // Get the section groups that are direct children of the current notebook.
    var sectionGroups = context.application.getActiveNotebook().sectionGroups;

    // Queue a command to load the section groups. 
    // For best performance, request specific properties.
    sectionGroups.load("name"); 

    // Run the queued commands, and return a promise to indicate task completion.
    return context.sync()
        .then(function () {

            // Iterate through the collection or access items individually by index, 
            // for example: sectionGroups.items[0]
            $.each(sectionGroups.items, function(index, sectionGroup) {
                console.log("Section group name: " + sectionGroup.name);  
                console.log("Section group ID: " + sectionGroup.id);  
            });
        });
})
.catch(function(error) {
    console.log("Error: " + error);
    if (error instanceof OfficeExtension.Error) {
        console.log("Debug info: " + JSON.stringify(error.debugInfo));
    }
});

toJSON()

toJSON(): OneNote.Interfaces.SectionGroupCollectionData;

Returns

track()

Track the object for automatic adjustment based on surrounding changes in the document. This call is a shorthand for context.trackedObjects.add(thisObject). If you are using this object across ".sync" calls and outside the sequential execution of a ".run" batch, and get an "InvalidObjectPath" error when setting a property or invoking a method on the object, you needed to have added the object to the tracked object collection when the object was first created.

track(): OneNote.SectionGroupCollection;

Returns

untrack()

Release the memory associated with this object, if it has previously been tracked. This call is shorthand for context.trackedObjects.remove(thisObject). Having many tracked objects slows down the host application, so please remember to free any objects you add, once you're done using them. You will need to call "context.sync()" before the memory release takes effect.

untrack(): OneNote.SectionGroupCollection;
