Document doc = new Document();

// Create task pane with "MyScript" add-in, which will be used by the document,
// then set its default location.
TaskPane myScriptTaskPane = new TaskPane();
myScriptTaskPane.DockState = TaskPaneDockState.Right;
myScriptTaskPane.IsVisible = true;
myScriptTaskPane.Width = 300;
myScriptTaskPane.IsLocked = true;

// If there are multiple task panes in the same docking location, we can set this index to arrange them.
myScriptTaskPane.Row = 1;

// Create an add-in called "MyScript Math Sample", which the task pane will display within.
WebExtension webExtension = myScriptTaskPane.WebExtension;

// Set application store reference parameters for our add-in, such as the ID.
webExtension.Reference.Id = "WA104380646";
webExtension.Reference.Version = "";
webExtension.Reference.StoreType = WebExtensionStoreType.OMEX;

webExtension.Properties.Add(new WebExtensionProperty("MyScript", "MyScript Math Sample"));
webExtension.Bindings.Add(new WebExtensionBinding("MyScript", WebExtensionBindingType.Text, "104380646"));

// Allow the user to interact with the add-in.
webExtension.IsFrozen = false;

// We can access the web extension in Microsoft Word via Developer -> Add-ins.
doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Document.WebExtension.docx");

// Remove all web extension task panes at once like this.
