There are some types of Content Controls in Microsoft Word.
We often use content controls to bind it with external data, so we can
have a generated document based on a template and filled with data.
In the case of SAP structured data, we bind it with a tag name using the
content control properties.
Below is a list Which will help you to navigate between the content controls types.
|Rich Text||A rich text control can contain custom formatted text or other items, such as tables, pictures, or other content controls.||Before Word 2013, rich text controls cannot be bound to an XML data node.|
|Plain Text||A plain text content control is limited to plain text in a single or multiple paragraphs. It cannot contain other items, such as tables, pictures, or other content controls.||All or nothing formatting. For example, if you italicize one word of a sentence that is in a plain text control, all the text inside the control is italicized.|
|Picture||Fills the content control with a single image.||Prohibits users from inserting any other Word objects or any text.|
|Combo Box||Contains a drop-down selection of list entries that users can select and textbox that user can edit directly.||All or nothing formatting. Input limited to a single paragraph of text.|
|Drop-Down List||A drop-down list displays a drop-down list of list entries that users can select. Unlike a combo box, the drop-down list does not let users enter a custom input.||All or nothing formatting.|
|Date Picker||Contains a calendar control. Limits text to a single paragraph.||Like plain text, limits text to a single paragraph that cannot contain any formatting.|
|Check Box||A check box provides a UI that represents a binary state: selected or cleared. Available only in Word 2010/2013.||Content is displayed in a rich text control when opened in Word 2007.|
|Building Block Gallery||A building block gallery enables users to select from a list of document building blocks to insert into a document. A document building block is a piece of content that has been created to be used multiple times, such as a common cover page, a formatted table, or a header.||Cannot be bound to an XML data node.|
|Group||A group control defines a protected region of a document that users cannot edit or delete. A group control can contain any document items, such as text, tables, graphics, and other content controls.||Cannot be bound to an XML data node.|
