public StringCollection Terms { get; }

Property Value

Gets a StringCollection that contains the string literals that the smart tag will recognize.

Use the Add method to add a string literal to the set of terms that the smart tag will recognize.

The following code example creates a Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.SmartTag and then uses the Terms property to add the word "sale" to the collection of terms that the smart tag recognizes. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Action class.

private Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Action DisplayAddress;

private void AddSmartTag()
{
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.SmartTag SmartTagDemo =
        new Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.SmartTag(
        "www.microsoft.com/Demo#DemoSmartTag",
        "Demonstration Smart Tag");

    // Specify a term and an expression to recognize.
    SmartTagDemo.Terms.Add("sale");
    SmartTagDemo.Expressions.Add(
        new System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex(
        @"[I|i]ssue\s\d{5,6}"));

    // Create the action.
    DisplayAddress = new Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Action(
        "To be replaced");

    // Add the action to the smart tag.
    SmartTagDemo.Actions = new
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Action[] { 
        DisplayAddress };

    // Add the smart tag to the workbook.
    this.VstoSmartTags.Add(SmartTagDemo);

    DisplayAddress.BeforeCaptionShow += new 
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.BeforeCaptionShowEventHandler(
        DisplayAddress_BeforeCaptionShow);

    DisplayAddress.Click += new 
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ActionClickEventHandler(
        DisplayAddress_Click);
}
