Integrate with the File-Save option to add features RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm brand new to Office 2010 integration and am looking for some basic guidance.

    I would like to inject my own code into the File-Save feature of the various office apps and add some additional functionality. Generally speaking I'd like to manipulate the document as it is being saved by doing things like accessing any images in the document or perhaps adding images as a background. So my questions are:

    1) Can this be done? Do Office 2010 apps offer this level of integration?

    2) If so what technology would I use, by that I mean do I need to create a VSTO addin or use some other form of Office integration?

    3) Finally, assuming whatever technology (VSTO or what have you) I use would be written in managed code, would it support using pinvoke to access native code?

    Thanks for any guidance you might have...
