Updated: July 2008
The information in this topic applies only to the specified Visual Studio Tools for Office projects and versions of Microsoft Office.
For more information, see Features Available by Application and Project Type.
Visual Studio Tools for Office provides controls, named host controls, that extend the functionality of some important objects in Microsoft Office Word so that they expose events and can be bound to data. In document-level projects, you can add any host control to your document at design time, or you can add content controls and bookmark controls at run time. Starting in Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 (SP1), you can add content controls and bookmark controls to any open document at run time in application-level add-ins for Word 2007.
