i am trying to get the wordapp from the addinmodule class but if i instantiate a new one the wordapp property is null. how can i call the addinmodule and get the current instance?

AddinModule localAddin ;//=new AddinModule();

Word.Dialog dlg = localAddin.WordApp.Application.Dialogs.Item(Word.WdWordDialog.wdDialogFormatFont);
int j = localAddin.WordApp.Application.Dialogs.Item(Word.WdWordDialog.wdDialogFormatFont).Display(ref object);
System.Type dlgType = typeof(Word.Dialog);

////// Pop up font format window.

//int j = dlg.Display(ref localOject);
// MessageBox.Show("You clicked: " + j.ToString());
if (j == -1)////// -1 means they clicked on "ok".
{
string s = (string)dlgType.InvokeMember("Font", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.GetProperty, null, dlg, null, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);
MessageBox.Show(s);

}
//Word.Range localRange;//=new Word.Range;

//define you Range object here.
Word.Document doc = localAddin.WordApp.Application.ActiveDocument;
object start = 0;
object end=doc.Characters.Count + 1;
Word.Range localRange = doc.Range(ref start, ref end);

Hi Christian.

Please use the code below to get an instance of Word application.

Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word._Application wordApp = this.HostApplication as Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word;

Or just use the this.WordApp.Application property to access Word application from the addinmodule.

Hello Christian,

In that case you need to pass an instance of the Word application to your winform application.
.NET, Extended MAPI, Windows Phone & RT

Hello Christian,

MyAddin1.AddinModule module = AddinExpress.MSO.ADXAddinModule.CurrentInstance as MyAddin1.AddinModule;


Now you can access module.WordApp.
