Hey,

got another problem. Can't manage situation when i open message or contact directly (i mean without starting outlook first)

what i need are names of parameters or methods that i have to check or handle.

In other words when i open a message or contact i saved earlier on the disc i need to handle this situation.

i know adxOutlookEvents.Startup fires but don't know how to tell if i oppened a contact or a message

thx in advance,
Tom

Hi Tom,

Please try to use the InspectorActivate and NewInspector events of the AddinExpress.MSO.ADXOutlookAppEvents component instead.

hey,

okay the "Handles adxOutlookEvents.NewInspector" did the work but now i'm afraid it finishes it's work before my ribbon is initialized or i don't know how to access this inspector's ribbon.


it adds stuff to my dropdownboxes on the ribbon but i cant set it' SlectedIndexes

any ideas?

Sorry, but I don't quite understand you. Could you please describe the required functionality in details? May be then I will be able to propose any solution.

yay i misspelled a little, sorry

i can add new items to the dropdownbox but i can't programatically set it's SelectedIndex
in code, the same place a fill the boxe i set it's SelectedItemIndex to 0. So in the new Inspector window i see new items in the box but it's SelectedItemIndex is -1

Me.box.Items.Add(newNumber)
Me.box.SelectedItemIndex = 0

afterall i even display this prop in msgbox
MsgBox(Me.box.SelectedItemIndex) but it shows "0"

Sorry for the bad post before,
Tom

Hi Tom,

Please set the SelectedItemIndex property of the AddinExpress.MSO.ADXRibbonDropDown class to any non-default value (for example, set it to zero). Does it help?

hey,

thx Eugene for your suggestion. It solved my problem cause 0 was what i needed to set the value to.

Thanks,
Tom

You are welcome, Tom!

BTW Please note that the SelectedItemId is used by default.
