This is a 2 part question :

1. I want to capture the "File -> Save As" menu click and based on some
processing decide whether the actual "Save As" dialog should be
displayed or not.

2. The "Save As" command should be intercepted :
A.) In Word / Excel
B.) Irrespective of the language of installation of Word / Excel.

Any leads or examples would be greatly helpful.

Thanks,
- Nilesh Padbidri.

Hi Nilesh.

Please download the following example:

You can use the DisableStandardAction property of the ADXBuiltInControl component to disable the standard dialog of the host application.

Sergey, thanks for the sample. The sample has reference to a hardcoded id, value of which is "748". My inference is "748", is ID of "Save As".

Going forward I would need to intercept more menu items. To that end do we have a published list of IDs. This would be useful in trapping the other menu items. For ex: I want to intercept all the menu items under the "Send To" submenu.

Thanks,
- Nilesh Padbidri.
