I need to be able to override the standard FileSave and FileSaveAs dialogs from Word with my own dialogs from a COM Add-In. I found some info on the web saying that I need a FileSaveAs/FileSave module in my addin template that has a Sub Main.

Can somebody describe the best way to integrate this into an ADX .NET project? (I'm using Visual Basic .NET)

Hi, Figmo.

You can use the ADXBuiltInControl component to disable the standard actions of the buttons and create your own dialogs. You can download an example here:

Would you have a C# example? I've tried porting it - but must be missing something. I can block the Save/Save As but can't get my own handler to be called....

Thanks...

Question - I don't quite understand how you are intercepting/disabling the default events on save/saveAs. There are other buttons/actions I would like to intercept (Open|Save As WebPage). Is it based on the Id - if so, what are the other Ids?

thanks a lot

Hi Chris.

Yes, correct. It is based on buttons IDs.
We have a tool called 'Built-in Controls Scanner' to scan all IDs of controls . You can download it using the following link:
