Communicating with MS Word
When a Silverlight 4 application is running with Elevated Permissions you can access COM objects which can be quite handy. Here we have a small example showing how to open Word and set some text.
It is important to include the following namespace when wanting to use these features:
You will also need to add a reference to the Microsoft.CSharp.dll which can be found in:
Program Files/Microsoft SDKs/Silverlight/V4.0/Libraries/Client/
Like the Excel example we are using the new dynamic keyword present in C# 4, this allows us to grab an instance of the Word application. To open Word and display it we use:
word.Visible = true;
We then create a new Word document and add some text, there is a whole host of possibilities with the new COM access capabilities of Silverlight 4.
