Examples

The following code example uses the RemoveCustomization method to remove the customization from the specified document. The example first calls the GetCustomizationVersion method to determine whether the document has a customization.

This example requires:

  • A console application project or some other non-Office project.

  • References to the following assemblies:

    • Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.ServerDocument.dll and Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Runtime.dll (if the project targets the .NET Framework¬†4).

      or

    • Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.ServerDocument.v10.0.dll and Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Runtime.v9.0.dll (if the project targets the .NET Framework 3.5).

  • Imports (for Visual Basic) or using (for C#) statements for Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications and Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Runtime namespaces at the top of your code file.
