Editing Permissions Dialog

The Editing Permissions dialog enables end-users to select a user or group of users to be allowed to edit a particular part of a document.

You can provide end-users with the capability to invoke the Editing Permissions dialog via the Protect toolbar or Ribbon page group. To do this, provide Bars or Ribbon UI for the RichEditControl (see How to: Create a Simple Word Processor with a Bar UI or How to: Create a Simple Word Processor with a Ribbon UI) and create the Protect toolbar or Ribbon page group from the Review group of bars.

You can invoke this dialog via the ShowRangeEditingPermissionsFormCommand command.

User names displayed in the dialog are supplied by the IUserListService service and the list of user groups is obtained from IUserGroupListService. The collection of ranges with permissions is obtained via the SubDocument.BeginUpdateRangePermissions method. For more information, see Range Permissions and Restrictions and Protection.

Note

The Editing Permissions dialog can be invoked if the document protection is stopped.

To customize the default Editing Permissions dialog or substitute it with completely new dialog, handle the RichEditControl.RangeEditingPermissionsFormShowing event. To get an example of the dialog replacement, refer to the How to: Customize the Search Form or How to: Customize the Hyperlink Form document.
