Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.v4.0.Utilities (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.v4.0.Utilities.dll)

public MsoEncoding TextEncoding { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: MsoEncoding
One of the MsoEncoding values.

This property sets text encoding separately from HTML encoding, which you can set using the Encoding property of the WebOptions object. You can get the WebOptions object from the WebOptions property. To set text encoding for all documents saved as text files, use the DefaultTextEncoding property.

The following code example sets the document encoding to Western if the document is saved as a text file. To use this example, run it from the ThisDocument class in a document-level project.

private void DocumentTextEncoding()
    this.TextEncoding = Office.MsoEncoding.msoEncodingWestern;
