The following code example demonstrates how to create a smart tag and an action in an Excel workbook project. To use this example, run the code from the ThisWorkbook class.


private Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Action displayAddress;

private void AddSmartTag()
{
    // Create the smart tag for .NET Framework 4 projects.
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.SmartTag smartTagDemo =
        Globals.Factory.CreateSmartTag(
            "www.microsoft.com/Demo#DemoSmartTag",
            "Demonstration Smart Tag");

    // For .NET Framework 3.5 projects, use the following code to create the smart tag.
    // Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.SmartTag smartTagDemo =
        // new Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.SmartTag(
        //     "www.microsoft.com/Demo#DemoSmartTag",
        //     "Demonstration Smart Tag");

    // Specify a term and an expression to recognize.
    smartTagDemo.Terms.Add("sale");
    smartTagDemo.Expressions.Add(
        new System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex(
        @"[I|i]ssue\s\d{5,6}"));

    // Create the action for .NET Framework 4 projects.
    displayAddress = Globals.Factory.CreateAction("To be replaced");

    // For .NET Framework 3.5 projects, use the following code to create the action.
    // displayAddress = new Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Action("To be replaced");

    // Add the action to the smart tag.
    smartTagDemo.Actions = new Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Action[] { 
        displayAddress };

    // Add the smart tag.
    this.VstoSmartTags.Add(smartTagDemo);

    displayAddress.BeforeCaptionShow += new 
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.BeforeCaptionShowEventHandler(
        DisplayAddress_BeforeCaptionShow);

    displayAddress.Click += new 
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ActionClickEventHandler(
        DisplayAddress_Click);
}
