outlook

P: n/a
Hi All,

Thanks for ur reply for my previous postings.
I have a question.

I wanted to show the outlook inbox in a window with minimal options like
send,delete,reply,forward,replytoall,new message.
how do i achieve that.
Is there any option in C# where i can perform this using the native support
of .NET framework?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jyothi.

Jyothi,

Unfortunately, there is not. The outlook controls are not exposed
publically (from what I can tell), so any functionality of this nature you
will have to expose yourself.

Hope this helps.

Jyothi, you are going to have to build your own view of the invox using
Interop and Outlook. Here's a site which will help you get started.

Jyothi,
Is there any option in C# where i can perform this using the native support of .NET framework? Outlook does not support Managed code per se, however using COM interop
there are a couple of options.

You can use the Outlook View Control on your Windows forms which displays
the contents of an Outlook folder, of course this means you will need to
have Outlook loaded.

It is included when you install Outlook 2002 & Outlook 2003. There is a
download available for Outlook 2000.

You will need to customize your VS.NET toolbar to include the control, right
click on the toolbox, select add/remove items, select the COM Components
page. For Outlook 2003 select "Microsoft Office Outlook View Control", for
Outlook 2002 select "Microsoft Outlook View Control".

You can use the Outlook PIA, optional install with Outlook 2003, download
for Outlook 2002. to create the actions to be performed on your toolbar &
menu.

The following web site contains a series of articles on using Outlook from
..NET:

http://www.microeye.com/resources/res_outlookvsnet.htm

If you want to create an Outlook like application I would recommend the
Janus GridEX Control for .NET http://www.janusys.net/janus/library/ which
does a very good job of mimicking the Outlook Grid control while allowing
you to bind to other datasources... Note this is a managed control, Janus
Systems also has a ActiveX version.

Hope this helps
Jay
