Is it possible to use DocX methods on the current document?

Feb 1, 2011 at 11:20 AM

Hi Everyone,

I wonder whether it is possible to use DocX methods on the current document (Word.Application.ActiveDocument). In all examples I saw they use DocX.Load to load a document, but I'd like to work with the current selection.

Hello A_K,

Word.Application.ActiveDocument is an object from a different API. You cannot use DocX methods on this object.
Why would you want to? Is DocX missing some functionality that this other API has?

You might be able to do some work with the Word.Application.ActiveDocument, save the document.
Then load it using DocX do the rest of your work and then save the document again.

Let me know what your trying to do and I will help you more.
Kind regards,
Cathal

Hello Cathal,

My intention is to create a button on a Word pane and use this button to save images to disk from the current document (save images you select in the document).

I found the following page and I think it contains the solution to my problem:

Thanks anyway!
