Hi friends. I am creating an application which allows a user to open word within an C# application with WPF. Can you please help me with the code to open a word application within a group box. Thanks in advance.

Here is a way to open a word document :

Add a COM reference : Microsoft Office 12.0 Object Library

Then add the following namespace :

using Microsoft.Office;
using office = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word;

And then in the code where you want to use, add this :

var wordApp = new office.Application();
Document document=wordApp.Documents.Open(//Specify the parameters)

I would simplify the problem by creating new Process.
Opening word application within a group box is not a trivial task.

Can you elaborate this topic? I am creating a WPF application. I an using tab control in my application. And under a particular tab there is group box where I want to display the word application. Can you please upload the code that will be more explanatory.

Process.Start will start Microsoft Word as a separate application. If you like to embed the Word app into your WPF you would rather want to consult P/Invoke topic proposed by Tarun.K.S.

A good start is here Office Development in Visual Studio[^]
