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

public string WritePassword { set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

Avoid using hard-coded passwords in your applications. If a password is required in a procedure, request the password from the user, store it in a variable, and then use the variable in your code.

The following code example sets the WritePassword property to a password and then saves the document. The next time the document is opened the password will be requested. This example assumes that the securePassword parameter is a secure password obtained from user input. To use this example, run it from the ThisDocument class in a document-level project.

private void DocumentWritePassword(string securePassword)
    this.WritePassword = securePassword;
