Overriding controls on the Task Pane
If we don't know built-in IDs on the Task Pane, how can we override?

I have successfully overridden the FileOpen, FileSave and FileSaveAs commands using adxBuiltInControl and adxKeyboardShortcut controls.

I want to override the 'Open' control on the Task Pane too. How do I do it please?

Hi Roger,

I think it is not possible. As well as in the case with opening a document via windows explorer. Try to use the OnDocumentOpen event.
