ContentControlListEntries Collection

Office 2007
The ContentControlListEntries collection contains ContentControlListEntry objects that represent the items in a drop-down list or combo box content control.

Remarks

Use the Add method to add an item to a drop-down list or combo box. The following example uses the Add method to add several list items to a new drop-down list content control.

Visual Basic for Applications
Dim objCC As ContentControl
Dim objLE As ContentControlListEntry
Dim objMap As XMLMapping

Set objCC = ActiveDocument.ContentControls.Add(wdContentControlDropdownList)

'List items
objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Cat"
objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Dog"
objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Equine"
objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Monkey"
objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Snake"
objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Other"

Use the Item method or the DropdownListEntries property of a ContentControl object to access an individual list item within a collection. The following example uses the Item method to access the third item in a list and change the display text.

Dim objMap As XMLMapping
