A ContentControl object is a mutable control that can represent any of the eight types of content controls that you can use in Microsoft Office Word. For example, if you create a ContentControl that initially has the functionality of a plain text control, you can change it at run time so that it behaves like a combo box. Other content controls cannot be used in this way. For example, a RichTextContentControl can only represent a rich text control. For more information about content controls, see Content Controls.

To create a ContentControl, use one of the AddContentControl methods. You cannot add a ContentControl to a document at design time.

When you create a ContentControl, you must specify the type of the content control that you want to create, or you can base the new control on an existing content control. After you create a ContentControl, you can change the type of content control that it represents by using the Type property.

Some ContentControl members will throw an exception if you use them while the control is set to a type of control that is not intended to use the member. For example, the DateCalendarType property will throw an exception if you try to use it on a ContentControl that does not represent a date picker.
