I would like to accept an event each time a user presses down any key while editing a document in Word or in outlook.

I was unable to find such an event. Preferable I would like to get more specific event like ending of paragraph or a sentence

Hi Arie.

I am afraid it is not possible. The Object Model of Word and Outlook doesn't contain such events.

Hi Sergey,

I need to implement a spell checker functionality in msword.
so when ever a user type a word and hit space bar the add ins shd chk database for that word and will pop a message if that word is not there in database.

you suggest me to use
DocumentChange event and the Selection object of Word application.
but i m unable to proceed with the same.

Hi Ashish.

I think you will have to use hooking to catch keyboard events in Word and Outlook. Please read about it in MSDN: "Hooks" chapter (see 'KeyboardProc' hook procedure).
