Package.GetParts Method


Returns a collection of all the parts in the package.

 System::IO::Packaging::PackagePartCollection ^ GetParts();
public System.IO.Packaging.PackagePartCollection GetParts ();
member this.GetParts : unit -> System.IO.Packaging.PackagePartCollection
Public Function GetParts () As PackagePartCollection


A collection of all the PackagePart elements that are contained in the package.


The package is not open (Dispose(Boolean) or Close() has been called).

The package is write-only.


GetParts returns a collection of all parts that are contained in the package including PackageRelationship parts.

GetParts will never return null; however, the returned collection will contain zero elements if the package contains no parts.

By default, a ZipPackage derived implementation of the abstract Package base class is provided and used. In the default operation, GetParts calls the GetPartsCore method of the ZipPackage class to return the parts from a ZIP file.

For more information about packages and package parts, see section 1.1 of the Open Packaging Conventions (OPC) specification available for download at https://www.ecma-international.org/publications-and-standards/standards/ecma-376/.

Notes to Inheritors

GetParts() internally calls the derived class GetPartsCore() method to actually flush the part based on the physical format implemented in the derived class.
