Accessing items in Java classes

The Item and RichTextItem classes let you examine and manipulate item properties and contents. You gain access to an Item or RichTextItem object through various methods in the Document class. The RichTextItem class inherits from Item, meaning that RichTextItem objects can use all the properties and methods of Item. You can:

  • Access item properties
  • Get an item and its values
  • Create an item and assign values
  • Copy an item
  • Remove an item
  • Parse or transform the contents of an item
  • Work with a MIME entity
  • Work with an embedded object
  • Work with custom data

See classes" for information specific to rich text items.
