Creating a simple UserControl in Outlook Addin

Hi All:
I am new to C#. Have created a simple outlook add-in, which adds a
command bar in Outlook. On click of the button, I would like to load
the a simple dialog with a Text Box and a Button. I would like to
populate the textbox with a value, before displaying it.
To accomplish this, I tried creating a custom control (Test Control)
in design time with a text box and button, and loaded the custom
control in a form in design time. I am able to create and display the
form at runtime, but unable to set the property of textbox that is
present in the custom control.
Could you please help?
Regards.

Without Knowing very much that you are doing

Did you check the textbox Modifier Property
public, private, protected etc

since you have it on a user Control, you either
have to create property to access the textbox from the outside world or make
the textbox itself public

On two XP Pro SP2 stations I didn't have problems: the installation ran well and the addin also. But on a third station (part of the...

I've been working on an Addin for Outlook in C#. It hasn't been long now, just a couple of days. Suddenly though, running my project in Debug launches Outlook as specified, but no breakpoints are hit in my source code. The Addin isn't being loaded. If I create a new Addin program from scratch, e.g. AddIn1, it loads up fine from Outlook. I archived my existing code, cleared out the registry and recreated a brand new Addin project with...

I'm porting a C# Outlook Addin originally engineered as a COM Addin over to use VSTO. I've gotten this to the point where my VSTO Addin installs its Menu items and Toolbar buttons when Outlook launches. I've wired up my event handler to each Menu item and toolbar button. (I use the same Event handler and I use the Tag property which is different for every Menu Item and Toolbar buton to determine which menu or button is being clicked and to...

Hi I have an Outlook add-in solution which includes a setup project. If I install the Outlook add-in by right clicking on the setup project and sleeting Install then the add-in gets installed fine in Outlook. However if I use the setup generated in the setup project Release folder then even though setup runs and finishes, the Outlook Add-in does not appear in Outlook. What is the problem and how can I fix it? Thanks

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
