The ContentControlListEntries collection contains ContentControlListEntry objects that represent the items in a drop-down list or combo box content control.

Use the Add method to add an item to a drop-down list or combo box. The following code example uses the Add method to add several list items to a new drop-down list content control.

Dim objCC As ContentControl Dim objLE As ContentControlListEntry Dim objMap As XMLMapping  Set objCC = ActiveDocument.ContentControls.Add(wdContentControlDropdownList)  'List items objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Cat" objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Dog" objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Equine" objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Monkey" objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Snake" objCC.DropdownListEntries.Add "Other"

Use the Item method or the DropdownListEntries property of a ContentControl object to access an individual list item within a collection. The following code example uses the Item method to access the third item in a list and change the display text.

The following code example assumes that the first ContentControl object in the active document is a drop-down list or combo box.

Dim objCC As ContentControl Dim objLE As ContentControlListEntry Dim objMap As XMLMapping  Set objCC = ActiveDocument.ContentControls(1) Set objLE = objCC.DropdownListEntries.Item(3) objLE.Text = "Horse"
