KeyBindings object (Word)

A collection of KeyBinding objects that represent the custom key assignments in the current context. Custom key assignments are made in the Customize Keyboard dialog box.


Use the KeyBindings property to return the KeyBindings collection. The following example inserts after the selection the command name and key combination for each item in the KeyBindings collection.

CustomizationContext = NormalTemplate 
For Each aKey In KeyBindings 
 Selection.InsertAfter aKey.Command & vbTab _ 
 & aKey.KeyString & vbCr 
 Selection.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd 
Next aKey

Use the Add method to add a KeyBinding object to the KeyBindings collection. The following example adds the CTRL+ALT+H key combination to the Heading 1 style in the active document.

CustomizationContext = ActiveDocument 
KeyBindings.Add KeyCategory:=wdKeyCategoryStyle, _ 
 Command:="Heading 1", _ 
 KeyCode:=BuildKeyCode(wdKeyControl, wdKeyAlt, wdKeyH)

Use KeyBindings (Index), where Index is the index number, to return a single KeyBinding object. The following example displays the command associated with the first KeyBinding object in the KeyBindings collection.

MsgBox KeyBindings(1).Command
