FindControls question (VBA vs. C#) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to either hide or redirect the "Reply to Comment" command that Word displays when a user right clicks inside a comment.

    I am able to get this to work in VBA:

    Set myControls = WordApp.CommandBars.FindControls _

    (Type:=msoControlButton, ID:=854)

    However,  when I try this in C#, the control button is not found:

    var myControl = Wd.WordApp.CommandBars.FindControl

    (MsoControlType.msoControlButton, Id: 854);

    Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? 

    (The command I am trying to find is ReplyToAnnotation in the "Customize the Ribbon" window in Word.

  • Hi,
    You used FindControls in VBA code but FindControl in C#. Besides, I didn't find any built-in control's id is 854 neither in Word 2007,2010,2013 or 2016.
    Here is my code using FindControls in c#.
    Word.Application app = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application;
    CommandBarControls myControls;       
     myControls = app.CommandBars.FindControls(Id:3);

    Best Regards,
