Add-in Express for Microsoft Office and Delphi VCL - Public Release

Version 7.8.1223

ADDED:

  • Support for Delphi XE8.
  • HostStartMode property to the TadxCOMAddInModule component.
  • HandleEvents property to the TadxOutlookAppEvents component.
  • OnSyncStart, OnSyncProgress, OnSyncError and OnSyncEnd events to the TadxOutlookAppEvents component.
  • SendMessage method and OnSendMessage event to the TadxCOMAddInModule component.

ALTERED:

  • Delphi 7, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010 and Delphi XE are not supported.

FIXED:

  • Add-in Express installation only for Delphi XE6 did not work.
  • elWebViewPane region did not show up for all specified Outlook folders.
  • Global atom table increased in size on each start of an add-in.
  • OnADXAfterFormHide event was not raised after closing an Outlook inspector window with an advanced Outlook region.
  • Controls on the headers of advanced Outlook regions and advanced Office task panes were drawn incorrectly on non-standard DPIs.
  • Minimized advanced Outlook view regions did not expand correctly after resizing an Outlook explorer window.
  • In Excel 2003-2010, the TaskPaneInstance property of the TadxExcelTaskPanesCollectionItem class returned nil.
  • A native Word 2010 custom task pane was duplicated in some scenarios.
  • Exception might have been thrown when accessing the OfficeTag property of controls located in the TadxContextMenu component.
  • FindCommandBar method of the TadxCOMAddInModule component might have thrown an exception in PowerPoint add-ins.

KNOWN ISSUES:

Outlook 2000-2013 Issues:

  • WebViewPane region cannot be used for folders if their WebViewOn and WebViewUrl properties cannot be set. Possible solution is setting the "Allow Script in shared folders" and "Allow Script in Public Folders" options in the security settings. See also the following article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923933.
  • TadxOlForm placed in the WebViewPane region is flickering when switching between folders.

Outlook 2010 and 2013 Issues:

  • TopSubpane, BottomSubpane, RightSubpane, LeftSubpane and FolderView regions for appointment folders do not work. We recommend using the DockTop, DockBottom, DockRight and DockLeft regions as an alternative.
  • Add-ins containing advanced regions built on Add-in Express 2009 (v. 5.x) are incompatible with add-ins built on Add-in Express 7.x.
  • An TadxOlForm may lose the focus when switching between pages on Inspector windows.
  • Another form may become active when switching between Inspector pages if the forms were added to the same region by several add-ins.

Outlook 2010 Issues:

  • For the elBottomTodoBar region to work correctly, either Appointments or Task List should be enabled in the ToDo bar options.

Outlook 2013 Issues:

  • elBottomTodoBar region does not work.

Social Connector Outlook Add-in Issues:

  • In Outlook 2003 - 2013, advanced regions may work incorrectly if the Social Connector Add-in is enabled/disabled manually. Outlook should be restarted for advanced regions to work correctly.

InfoPath 2010 Issues:

  • Native Office 2010 custom task panes may not show up when a new instance of InfoPath is opened.
