# Bookmark.Text Property

Visual Studio 2005

Gets or sets the text in the Bookmark control.

Namespace: Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word (in microsoft.office.tools.word.dll)

## Syntax

```[BindableAttribute(true)]
public string Text { get; set; }
```

#### Property Value

The text of the Bookmark control.

## Remarks

The Text property returns the plain, unformatted text of the bookmark. When you set this property, the text of the Bookmark control is replaced.

Setting the Bookmark.Text property does not delete the bookmark.

Setting the Bookmark.Text property of a bookmark that spans multiple table cells will set the text within the first cell only. If the bookmark contains the entire table and surrounding text, the entire table will be deleted.

For information about setting the Bookmark.Text property of a bookmark that overlaps another bookmark, see Bookmark Control.

## Example

The following code example adds a Bookmark control with text and then displays the total number of characters in the bookmark using the ComputeStatistics method.

```private void BookmarkComputeStatistics()
{
this.Paragraphs[1].Range.InsertParagraphBefore();
Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Bookmark bookmark1 =
"bookmark1");
bookmark1.Text = "This is sample bookmark text.";
int totalCharacters = bookmark1.ComputeStatistics(Word
.WdStatistic.wdStatisticCharacters);
MessageBox.Show("The bookmark contains " +
totalCharacters.ToString() + " characters.");
}

```
