Menu Clicks in Office Apps
Posted on 2002-07-22
I thought that all my dreams had come true with COM AddIns. I could add a menu item to the file menu, capture the click event in my DLL and process it to my hearts content. That was, until I tried to make it work in Office 97 as well.
I need an "easy" way to add a menu item to Word/Excel/PowerPoint..., capture the click, so that I can "do something" in my external code (dll). This needs to work the same in Office 97, 2000, 2002. I cannot require the Office user to install/configure, etc. I must be able to get this going via automation.
