Bookmark.SelectionChange Event


Occurs when the selection inside the Bookmark control changes.

 event Microsoft::Office::Tools::Word::SelectionEventHandler ^ SelectionChange;
event Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.SelectionEventHandler SelectionChange;
member this.SelectionChange : Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.SelectionEventHandler 
Event SelectionChange As SelectionEventHandler 

Event Type


The following code example adds a Bookmark control with text to the document and then creates a SelectionChange event handler. A message box is displayed when the cursor is moved within the bookmark.

This example is for a document-level customization.

Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Bookmark bookmark5;

private void BookmarkSelectionChange()
    bookmark5 = this.Controls.AddBookmark(this.Paragraphs[1]
        .Range, "bookmark5");
    bookmark5.Text = "This is a sample bookmark.";
    bookmark5.SelectionChange += new Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.SelectionEventHandler(bookmark5_SelectionChange);

void bookmark5_SelectionChange(object sender, Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.SelectionEventArgs e)
    MessageBox.Show("The selection has changed within bookmark1.");
WithEvents Bookmark5 As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Bookmark

Private Sub BookmarkSelectionChange()
    Bookmark5 = Me.Controls.AddBookmark(Me.Paragraphs(1).Range, _
    Bookmark5.Text = "This is a sample bookmark."
End Sub

Private Sub Bookmark5_SelectionChange(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.SelectionEventArgs) _
    Handles Bookmark5.SelectionChange
    MessageBox.Show("The selection has changed within Bookmark1.")
End Sub


This event is raised when the selection changes to or within the Bookmark control.
