Definition

Represents a collection of managed controls on a Word document that has been customized by using the Office development tools in Visual Studio.

[System.Runtime.InteropServices.Guid("E1180F09-B903-4D03-8D30-2845219AEE2C")]
public interface ControlCollection : System.Collections.IEnumerable
Attributes
Implements

Remarks

Use the ControlCollection methods and properties to manage controls on a Word document. For more information, see Adding Controls to Office Documents at Run Time.

To get an ControlCollection object in a document-level project, use the Controls property of the ThisDocument class in your project. To get an ControlCollection object in an application-level project, use the Controls property of a Document host item that you create programmatically at run time. For more information, see Extending Word Documents and Excel Workbooks in VSTO Add-ins at Run Time.

The following table shows how to use ControlCollection members to perform some common tasks related to controls on documents.

Task Action
Add a control to the document. Use one of the AddControlName methods. For example, to add a content control, use the AddContentControl method.
Remove a control from the document. Use the Remove method.
Determine whether a control is in the collection. Pass the control or its name to the Contains method.
Get the index of a control in the collection. Pass the control or its name to the IndexOf method.
Get a control from the collection. Pass the index or name of the control to the Item[String] property.

Note

This interface is implemented by the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime. It is not intended to be implemented in your code. For more information, see Visual Studio Tools for Office Runtime Overview.
