Field data types for Word SDTs


It should be possible to set the data type of a binding SDT to plain text/date/image/list box/combo box.

Thus people can use the word helpers (e.g. date choosers, pull down lists) on plug-in generated SDTs without manually modifying the word document part.

You can use the Word Developer tab to insert contents controls of these types.

Then, bind them via the task pane in the usual way.

I tested this with a date content control, and have previously done so with an image one.

Granted, it might be nice to have this functionality easily accessible via the OpenDoPE ribbon.
