MSDN Webcast on Visual Studio Tools for Office Version 2: Developing Word Solutions


Kathleen McGrath is doing an MSDN webcast on VSTO 2.0 and Word tomorrow, Tuesday April 27th, at 11 AM PST.


Description: “This webcast will demonstrate how to use the new actions pane, provided by Microsoft® Visual Studio® Tools for the Microsoft Office System, Version 2.0, in your Microsoft Office Word 2003 solutions. The actions pane simplifies the current smart document solution development experience by significantly reducing the amount of code that needs to be written, provides support for Windows Forms controls in the Document Actions task pane, does not require Word documents to be XML-based, and eliminates the need for creating XML expansion packs.“

  1. Sounds great. I am already using Word 2003 with XML and VSTO as a tool for me and the authors of my site. Currently they write the article in Word 2003 and send me a zip at the end that contains everything we need to publish the article. This zip file is generated using C# and VSTO at save time. My next plan is to add a DIME Web Service on my web site: <a href="http://www.techheadbrothers.com>"Tech Head Brothers<a/> so that they can directly publish it. A task pane written as a form would be great for that. When is the release date for this second version?

  2. Do you have a link to the webcast?
