To retrieve start and end characters of a range in a document-level customization

  • Get the values of the Start and End properties of the Range object. The following code example gets the start and end position of the second sentence in the document. To use this code example, run it from the ThisDocument class in your project.

    Word.Range rng = this.Sentences[2];
    
    string startPosition = rng.Start.ToString();
    string endPosition = rng.End.ToString();
    
    MessageBox.Show("Start: " + startPosition + " End: " + endPosition, "Range Information");
    

To retrieve start and end characters of a range by using an application-level add-in

  • Get the values of the Start and End properties of the Range object. The following code example gets the start and end position of the second sentence in the active document. To use this code example, run it from the ThisAddIn class in your project.

    Word.Range rng = this.Application.ActiveDocument.Sentences[2];
    
    string startPosition = rng.Start.ToString();
    string endPosition = rng.End.ToString();
    
    MessageBox.Show("Start: " + startPosition + " End: " + endPosition, "Range Information");
