Communication betweeb Office Add in and Office apps RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I think I read in the documentation that Office apps can't talk with Office add-ins be casue of security reasons.

    But can Office add-in talk with Office apps directly?

    As Office add-ins runs under high trust they have full permission.

    My requirement is I want to call a method in Office app when user clicks a button on ribbon.

    Please let me know if this is possible.

    or what is the best approach for inter communication between Office add-ins and Office apps.

    thanks

    Jay

    This isn't supported as well.

    Hope it helps.
