Creating a project using the Word component

Let's create a simple WPF application using the Word component
We’ll need to add the necessary links to our project. Therefore, click on "Links" and select "Add link"
We’ll need to select such links - ComponentPro.Word.dll. Which, I remind, are in the Extensions
Loading the contents of a document in Word

OpenFileDialog dlg = new OpenFileDialog();
dlg.Filter = "Word files (.doc;.docx)|*.doc;;*.docx|All Files (*.*)|*.*";
dlg.FilterIndex = 1;
if (dlg.ShowDialog() == true)
string message = null;
// Open the selected file for reading.
using (System.IO.Stream fileStream = dlg.File.OpenRead())
WordDocument document = new WordDocument(fileStream);
message = string.Format("Word file loaded successfully and it has {0}
catch (Exception ex)
message = "File load failed. Error: " + ex.Message;
lblMessage.Content = message;

Save changes to a document in Word

string message = null;
using (Stream fileStream = dlg.OpenFile())
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
// Add a new document to the document.
ComponentPro.Word.Section firstSection = document.AddSection();
// Add text to the document.
ComponentPro.Word.Paragraph paragraph = firstSection.AddParagraph();
paragraph.AppendText("Ultimate Word for .NET is a 100%-managed Word document component that helps you
add Word capabilities in your .NET applications. " +
"With a few lines of code, you can create a complex Word document from scratch or load an existing
Word file.");
document.Save(fileStream, WordDocumentFormat.Word2007);
// Close the document.
message = "File saved successfully.";
catch (Exception ex)
message = "Error saving Word file. Error: " + ex.Message;
