DocumentBase.BuiltInDocumentProperties Property

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Gets a DocumentProperties collection that represents all the built-in document properties for the document.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.v4.0.Utilities (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.v4.0.Utilities.dll)

public Object BuiltInDocumentProperties { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object
A DocumentProperties collection that represents all the built-in document properties for the document.

To return a single DocumentProperty that represents a specific built-in document property, use BuiltInDocumentProperties(index) in Visual Basic or BuiltInDocumentProperties[index] in C#, where index is one of the WdBuiltInProperty values.

If Microsoft Office Word does not define a value for one of the built-in document properties, reading the Value property for that document property throws an exception.

Use the CustomDocumentProperties property to return the collection of custom document properties.

The following code example displays a message that shows the date and time that the document was created. To use this example, run it from the ThisDocument class in a document-level project.

private void DocumentBuiltInDocumentProperties()
{
    MessageBox.Show("Document creation: " + ((Office.DocumentProperties)
        (this.BuiltInDocumentProperties))[Word.WdBuiltInProperty.
        wdPropertyTimeCreated].Value.ToString());
}
