Hi,

Searching the forums i stumbled upon an example to override the FileSave and FileSaveAs events in Word
(http://www.add-in-express.com/projects/mysavedialog_vb.zip)

I tried implementing it, but all i get is 2 extra buttons on my Add-In Ribbon.
The standard Save and SaveAs dialogs still appear when using the standard buttons.
Anyone has an idea why ? Or is it because of Office 2007 ?

Thnx,
Ben

Hi Ben.

The example is written for MS Office 2000 - 2003 and it doesn't work correctly in Office 2007. Do you use Add-in Express v3.4?

Ben, in Office 2007 you need to use the 'command' element of the Ribbon scheme to connect to built-in controls of the Ribbon UI. Now Add-in Express doesn't support this element. We will support it in the next build.

Too bad it isn't supported then :-)
So overriding them is not an option for the moment.

No it is possible. You can override them in the OnRibbonBeforeLoad event handler using the e.Xml property.

However in this case you will not able to use adxloader.dll.
