TextRetrievalMode Object

Multiple objects

Represents options that control how text is retrieved from a Range object.

Using the TextRetrievalMode Object

Use the TextRetrievalMode property to return a TextRetrievalMode object. The following example displays the text of the first sentence in the active document, excluding field codes and hidden text.

With ActiveDocument.Sentences(1).TextRetrievalMode
    .IncludeHiddenText = False
    .IncludeFieldCodes = False
    MsgBox .Parent.Text
End With


Changing the ViewType , IncludeHiddentText , or IncludeFieldCodes property of the TextRetrievalMode object doesn't change the screen display. Instead, changing one of these properties determines what text is retrieved from a Range object when the Text property is used.
