    Below, is a sample script demonstrating how to process all ContentControl items of a document:


    function Word_ContentControl()


    var word = Sys.OleObject("Word.Application");

    var activeDocument = word.ActiveDocument;

    var contentControls = activeDocument.ContentControls;

    for(var i = 1; i <= contentControls.Count; i++) {

    var contentControl = contentControls.Item(i);

    Log.Message(contentControl.Title, "Tag: " + contentControl.Tag + "\r\n" + "Range: " + contentControl.Range);
