Help controlling Word?

ljh
I want to develop an application that can watch for and monitor any instance
of Word 2000/2003. I need to be able to write an add-in menu for Word
2000/2003 and capture all keystrokes and mouse events done in Word also, for
a training application.

I am searching for all of the code that I can get my grubby little hands on
that shows key and mouse capturing with .Net 2005 and code that shows
monitoring and controll of Word, Outlook and Excel.

If you know of any examples that may help in my quest, would you be so kind
as to let me know?

Thanks!

To be clear, I am not talking about automation.

For example, for Word I need to be able to do the following...... .

1) Detect any new instance of Word
2) Detect any files opened by that instance and the location of the file
opened (an event firing would be great)
3) Detect any files saved by that instance and the location that they were
saved to (an event firing would be great)
4) (ideally) Detect all mouse and key events performed in any instance of
Word

I hope that this is a little more clear.

Although I am finding examples of Word automation, they all look to be
creating new instances and not querying existing Word instances.

Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there At the moment I am writing a GUI front-end that in the background is to call some scripts on a Unix box. The GUI has to be written in Visual Basic (yes I said the VB word...sorry! :-) ) The big issue is that the command line utility that has to be used in order to access the Unix box asks for a password (you can send the user ID as a parameter). I can get the password securely from the user in the GUI...but I have to somehow...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
