Syncfusion Essential DocIO is a .NET Core Word library used to create, read, and edit Word documents programmatically without Microsoft Word or Interop dependencies. Using this library, you can find whether a comment is resolved or not in the Word document in C#.

  1. Create a new C# .NET Core console application project.


  2. Install the Syncfusion.DocIO.Net.Core NuGet package as a reference to your .NET Core applications from


Starting with v16.2.0.x, if you reference Syncfusion assemblies from trial setup or from the NuGet feed, include a license key in your projects. Refer to link to learn about generating and registering Syncfusion license key in your application to use the components without trail message.

  1. Include the following namespace in the Program.cs file:
using Syncfusion.DocIO;
using Syncfusion.DocIO.DLS;
  1. Use the following code example to find whether a comment is resolved or not in the Word document:
using (FileStream inputStream = new FileStream(Path.GetFullPath("../../../Sample.docx"), FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.ReadWrite))
  //Load an existing Word document.
  using (WordDocument document = new WordDocument(inputStream, FormatType.Docx))
      //Loop through the comments in word document.
      foreach (WComment comment in document.Comments)
          //Check whether the comment is resolved or not.
          Console.WriteLine(comment.Done ? "Resolved" : "Unresolved");

A complete working sample to find whether a comment is resolved or not in C# can be downloaded from GitHub.
