Word 2007 add-in that works like IntelliSense RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to write an add-in for Word 2007 that will work like IntelliSense does. I have not been able to find any helpful information on this. Can anyone provide some insight on how I can accomplish this. Just a url, or something for me to read up on about it would be a great start.  Basically what I need to do is check the word being entered against a list of words and display information about the word.

  • Word doesn't provide any events you can use to capture keypresses. So, unless you're really good at manipulating the Windows API to handle keyboard messaging before it reaches Word, this isn't going to be possible. I know of no URLs that discuss this. Appropriate discussion groups would be the office.developer newsgroups, as listed in the "Please Read First" message at the top of the forum.
