Drag-N-Drop from MS Outlook

Hi,

I'm trying to do drag-n-drop from MS Outlook onto a C#
form. I'm just proving a concept for management here so
we don't need to get fancy; assume I'm dropping an Outlook
e-mail message with 2 file attachements onto a form. I've
read everything I could find in MSDN that is relevant and
I've got the basic hooks in place:

private void MainForm_DragEn ter(object sender,
System.Windows. Forms.DragEvent Args e)
{
e.Effect = DragDropEffects .Copy;
}

private void MainForm_DragDr op(object sender,
System.Windows. Forms.DragEvent Args e)
{
?????? PLEASE HELP
}

But now what? About all that I have been succesfully able
to do is get the string text of the message. How do I get
to the subject? body? distribution? file attachements? Is
everything I need in the dropped object itself? Or do I
need to interact with the clipboard or Outlook itself?

Any help would be appreciated, a dirty C# code snippet
would be best, but if you could just steer me in the right
direction I'd appreciate it. I've read everything in MSDN
that I could find that was relevant to drag/drop and
Outlook but have not found a sample that works with the
entire e-mail message AND file attachements.

Can anyone provide a small snippet in C# that pulls out the Contacts in Outlook XP. I've seen a couple of examples in C++ and VB in previous newsgroup posts, but either the originals didn't work or my conversion skills are weak. And if I have to use tlbimp.exe what is the right file to use. Thanks for the help. -- Fritz

I have an Outlook 2003 using Exchange Server 2003 Public Contacts Folder containing 20,000 Contacts. I am writing a VB .Net 2003 program that loops through all the contacts in a "for each oCt in oItems" loop. After about 250 contacts, the program gives an InvalidCastException Error on the for each loop. I notice that Outlook's memory keeps increasing (using the task manager) until it reaches around 20,000K. When I run the program a second...

Has anyone got some sample code to do drag and drop from one listbox to another listbox using VB.Net 2005. The below code works for draging and droping one at a time, but not for multiselected items. I tried setting up an array to capture the selected items and then move them with the dragndrop code, but after selecting the items when the user clicks on the items to drag them the selection goes back to one item.

Hi, In my form I have two ToolStripPanels (TSP), one docked on the left, the other docked on the right. Each of those TSP contains a ToolSrip control. I would like to allow the ToolStrips to move on their respective TSP they belong to, but prevent dragndrop of ToolStrips from one TSP to the other. How can I do that?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.
