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

void CreateTextbox()

If the selection is an insertion point, this method changes the pointer to a cross-hair pointer so that the user can draw a text box.

Using this method is equivalent to clicking the Text Box button on the Drawing toolbar. A text box is a rectangle with an associated text frame.
