In one of the previous posts, we examined the possibilities of retrieving properties from Outlook MailItem when dragging this item onto your custom form. Here is that post: How to get properties of an Outlook email item drag-and-dropped onto a .NET form. But what if the Advanced Region is in a Minimized state? In this case the form is hidden and none of the standard events will work.
Starting from version 5.1, a new event is available in Add-in Express – ADXDragOverMinimized. Using this event you can access a dragged item and expand the form. The code of the sample is very plain indeed, and I am not going to publish it here. You can download the samples using the links at the end of this post.
