Customizing the Document Actions Task Pane

You can customize the task pane In Word and Excel by using Smart Document technology or by using the ActionsPane object in VSTO. After you have customized the task pane, it appears in the list of task panes available and is called the Document Actions task pane. Figure 5.1 shows the Document Actions task pane listed along with the built-in Word task panes. This entry does not appear until after you have written code to customize the task pane, and you cannot change the name of this task pane; it will always be labeled "Document Actions."
