Removal of Outlook Toolbar
Methods of removing toolbar

I see that any non-temporary Outlook toolbars created by adx are not removed during a call to DllUnregisterServer.

I would prefer not to change my toolbar to a temporary one because the captions are manipulated based on data downloaded from a website while its running and its nicer to see the captions at the same state they were in when Outlook was shut down rather than waiting for the next connect to the website.

I glanced at an example project for the .net version that showed the removal of the toolbars by using the OnBeforeAddinUnregister event. I've never used C# so I'm not positive of the code, but it looks like you're forced to fire up Outlook if its not already running and then delete the toolbars through code and close down outlook.

I was wondering if its possible to take a different approach. Is it possible to manipulate the registry and delete the toolbar? Or possibly just have it be hidden and marked as temporary so it will be deleted on the next startup and shutdown of Outlook?

Otherwise - is it possible for you to take your .net example of removal of the toolbars during the OnBeforeAddinUnregister event and convert it to VCL adx for Delphi 7?

Thanks,

Cory

I will create an example and let you know in this forum thread.
