Building a word document in vb.net - Ability to format the header jpg.

With the code below I am able to add the jpg file to the word document header but I am unable to modify.  I need the ability to format the picture to Horizontal Alignment = Left and wrapping style = Behind Text, and adjust the size of the photo to include the entire width of the document.

oWord.ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = Word.WdSeekView.wdSeekCurrentPageHeader

 oWord.ActiveWindow.Selection.InlineShapes.AddPicture(FileName:="G:\apps\EXECSRCH\header.jpg", LinkToFile:=False, SaveWithDocument:=True)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Vince

The first thing that I try to do when working with VBA or .NET equivalent, is to record a macro.

Setting the format for a picture would be:

 Selection.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphRight

Open in new window


You need a reference to the Shape object to set the properties:

With Selection.ShapeRange
   .RelativeHorizontalPosition = wdRelativeHorizontalPositionPage
   .Left = wdShapeCenter
   .WrapFormat.Type = wdWrapTight
   .LockAspectRatio = msoTrue
   .ScaleHeight 0.8, msoTrue
   .ScaleHeight 0.8, msoTrue
End With
