How can I get the index of the selected item in the RibbonCombobox.
I want to get it in an Onchange event.
In a previous article you mentioned the use of ItemIndex.


Best regards

Hello Gabor,

No way. There's no SelectedItemIndex property on that control; that's by design from the Ribbon API by Microsoft.

Hello Andrei

Thanks, I have solved the procedure.

My other development problems
1.I would like to request a sample program to expand Outlook Categories items at runtime.
The example in the article does not recognize _Categories and _Category

2.I would like to read and save the selected appointment data
