We continue our journey through Apps for Office by building a real-world Task Pane App. We’ll look at using some of the more useful features of the Office API as well as review some gotchas to keep in mind while developing Task Pane Apps..

For this demo we’ll create an app called Reuser. This app will allow you to save content from a Word document into a bank so that you can reuse it later. This is helpful if you are writing something that makes constant references to a specific link, block of text, or formatted content.

The purpose of this sample is to demonstrate how you can effectively read and write content to and from the document in a useful way, as well as demonstrate how to persist content with the document so it is available for later reuse. We’ll also look at some useful API features and tips to help you create more interactive apps.

Since we’ve already discussed how to get started building Apps for Office, let’s dive right into the code.
