How to: Set the Building Blocks That You Can Use for a Content Control
|Word Developer Reference|
A document building block is a predesigned piece of content, such as a cover page or a header or footer. A document building block enables the user to choose from a defined list of document building blocks to insert into a document. Microsoft Office Word 2007 includes a library of document building blocks that help you to more quickly and easily create professional-looking documents.
You can use content controls to create custom building blocks. The Word 2007 object model contains 35 building block types that you can set to a content control. A new enumeration called WdBuildingBlockTypes contains each building block type. However, you can only use the following types within a building block gallery content control:
- Quick Parts
- Custom 1 though Custom 5
- Custom AutoText
- Custom Tables
- Custom Equations
- Custom Quick Parts
