Detecting "no" choice in save prompt

When the user closes a modified appointment, they get a prompt to save the appointment. If they click "no", is there a way to detect this?

The reason I need this is because while the appointment is open in my add-in certain actions are done in an external system, and if the user chooses "no", this means the actions should be rolled back.

An alternative solution I've considered is saving the appointment automatically when the external action is done. But what are the side-effects of saving programmatically? Is it possible that updates get sent to participants?

Hi Joeri,

The Outlook Object Model does not provide access to this Yes/No/Cancel dialog. I think you can try to handle the TAppointmentItem.OnClose event and check out the Saved property of the appointment item being closed.

Thanks!

Checking whether the EntryID is empty in the OnClose event seems to work well.
