Property Value

Type Description

A string that is the target help text.


Use the FormField.HelpText property to specify the help text shown when pressing F1. When the FormField.StatusTextType property is set to FormFieldTextType.Custom, the StatusText should be equal to one of the AutoText gallery entries. Otherwise, the FormField.StatusText value is not displayed when opening it in another word processing tool.

The AutoText contents are not embedded to the document. When the document with the form field whose StatusText property is set to FormFieldTextType.Auto is opened on another machine, the FormField.StatusText value is not displayed as well.


The RibbonStatusBar cannot display the form field help text.
