Word UDF understanding-problems

3 posts in this topic

Hi folks.

I am new to the Word UDF's..

1. Is it correct that the MethodVariables like "document", "Hyperlinks", etc.. , which i can access via a Doc-Object comming from Microsoft and not form AutoIT?

      The only definition-list i found is here "http://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/library/Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word(v=office.11).aspx"

2. How can i get the plain text al the Document, currently i am doing it with $oDoc.Range.Text.

3. I don't see a chance to fetch "objects" in Word.

       With Objects in this case i mean, those rectangles u can draw in the newest Word and insert some text there...

       I need the text inside the "invisible" rectangle. (with invisible i meant: noborder,nobackground, just for layouting existing rectangle)

4. How can i access to the Pictures inside this document?

5. Formfields didnt worked for the Rectangles.. I don't understand Formfields i guess. :(  *snieef*

 

What i need to script is this:

- Fetching some specific lines (Already done with .Range.Text && StringRegExp() && StringSplit())

- Fetching the Pictures adn saving somewhere

- Fetching the Text inside the Boxes/Rectangles

 

Why is there no Tutorial for this?  :(

MfG/regards,

Mark Paspirgilis

  1. Correct. Most of the MS products provide a COM interface. You can access/create/modify properties, objects and collections by using methods or by directly assigning a value. For Word I start to read here: Word 2007 and Word 2010.
  2. $oDoc.Range is the whole document
  3. They are called frames and can be accessed via COM
  4. Have a look at the Shapes or InlineShapes collection
