Using Windows Form to add text to richtextcontentcontrol in Word document RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    I'm building a project in which I want to add text to a richtextcontentcontrol in word by clicking a button on a random windows form.

    I want to 'pass' de text to the word document, which is added in the project in Visual Studio.

    In the provided link, the documents are included.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hello,

    I have downloaded your project but I'm still wondering how do you use the form in the project?

    I think the process is Getting the text->Getting the control object->Setting the text to the control object, right? Which part code puzzles you?

    I think the key point maybe how to access the richtextcontentcontrol. If so, I would suggest you set a tag for the control, such as "Test". And then you could use SelectContentControlByTag method to return the object and then set text to the object.

    Here is a simply code.

    //not sure how would you get the document object, you could get it by your way
    	    Word.Document wdDoc = Globals.ThisDocument.Application.ActiveDocument;
                Word.ContentControl contentControl = wdDoc.SelectContentControlsByTag("Test")[1];
                contentControl.Range.Text = "This is added text string";

    Best Regards,
