How to activate an Embedded Object at the application start up? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'd like to know if there is a way to activate an Embedded Object inside .docx at the MSWord startup, so the user doesn't have to click away in a "place-holder" icon to see its contents.

    I've alredy tried (using C#)

    DrawAspect = ovml.OleDrawAspectValues.Content


    UpdateMode = ovml.OleUpdateModeValues.Always

    but they just weren't woth it...

  • Hi Diego,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    You can active an Embedded Object by this snippet. This snippet is a part of my word document-level solution.

    //doc is my Word.Document instance.
    //In the document I embedded a Excel workbook
    //Please put it in your ThisDocument_Startup method.

    I hope it helps.

    Have a good day,
