Examples

The following code example uses the AddButton method to add a Button control to the first paragraph in the document, and then adds text to the button. To use this example, run it from the ThisDocument class in a document-level project.

private void WordRangeAddButton()
{
    this.Paragraphs[1].Range.InsertParagraphBefore();
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Controls.Button button1 =
        this.Controls.AddButton(this.Paragraphs[1].Range,
        56.25F, 17.25F, "button1");
    button1.Text = "OK";
}
Private Sub WordRangeAddButton()
    Me.Paragraphs(1).Range.InsertParagraphBefore()
    Dim Button1 As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Controls.Button _
        = Me.Controls.AddButton(Me.Paragraphs(1).Range, 56.25F, _
        17.25F, "Button1")
    Button1.Text = "OK"
End Sub 

Remarks

The ControlExtensions methods are extension methods that are available on the ControlCollection object returned by the Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Document.Controls property (in an application-level project) or the Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.DocumentBase.Controls property (in a document-level project) at run time. To add a specific control to a document, use the method that includes the name of the control in the method name. For example, to add a Button, use the AddButton method.

For more information about adding controls to a document, see Adding Controls to Office Documents at Run Time. For more information about extension methods, see Extension Methods and Extension Methods.

Note

In Word add-in projects that target the .NET Framework 4, you must add a reference to the Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.v4.0.Utilities.dll assembly before you can access the ControlExtensions methods.
