ContentControlListEntries Collection

ContentControlListEntries Collection

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

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

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 code example uses the Item method to access the third item in a list and change the display text.

Note Note

The following code example assumes that the first ContentControl object in the active document is a drop-down list or combo box.

Dim objCC As ContentControl
Dim objLE As ContentControlListEntry
Dim objMap As XMLMapping

Set objCC = ActiveDocument.ContentControls(1)
Set objLE = objCC.DropdownListEntries.Item(3)
objLE.Text = "Horse"

Use the Clear method to remove all items from a drop-down list or combo box. The following code example clears all items from the first content control in the active document.

Note Note

The following code example assumes that the first content control in the active document is a drop-down list or combo box.

Dim objCC As ContentControl

Set objCC = ActiveDocument.ContentControls(1)

objCC.DropdownListEntries.Clear
