"Freeze" word application/display?
How to "freeze" the word application/display?

I use the Add-Inn express and Word Interop to automate some word functions.
Among others, I use the word search/go-to function to find values in the document and to read them out.
The search/go-to function causes that the cursor jumps to the founded element.
However, these search/go-to should not be visible for the user, but run completely in the background.

Is is possibe to "freeze" the Word application/display and to release again after the code was executed, so that the user nothing see of the backround processes?

Thanks for the answers!

Hello Mas,

WordApp.ScreenUpdating = false;
