BuildingBlockEntries interface

Office 2013 and later

Represents a collection of all BuildingBlock objects in a template.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.dll)

public interface BuildingBlockEntries

Use the Add(String, WdBuildingBlockTypes, String, Range, Object, WdDocPartInsertOptions) method to create a new building block and add it to a template.

Unlike the Add(String, Range, Object, WdDocPartInsertOptions) method for the BuildingBlocks collection, you need to specify the type and category when you add a building block using the Add(String, Range, Object, WdDocPartInsertOptions) method of the BuildingBlockEntries collection. This is because building blocks are organized by using types and categories. When you use the BuildingBlockEntries collection, you are accessing the entire collection of building blocks in a template; however, when you use the BuildingBlocks collection, you are accessing the collection of building blocks for a specific type and category in a template.


Using the Category and Type properties for the BuildingBlock object enables you to determine the category and type for a building block.
