Description

The NamedStyle class represents a named style, such as "Normal", "Heading 1", etc., that is embedded in a Word document.

C#
vb.net

Remarks

You cannot create a new named style programmatically. You can only work with Named Styles that are in an existing document. You can obtain an instance of this class from the Document.Styles collection. You can apply a style to different sections and elements within your document. You cannot, however, modify a named style using WordWriter.

The following sample retrieves a copy of the Heading 1 style and applies it to a new paragraph.
