Hi,

since any event, I would like to open a dialog box that is pseudo modal, meaning that every mouse click or key press is inhibited in Outlook during treatment.
The dialog is designed to display information and allow the cancellation of work.
The code below works for a TForm, but not in a TadxCOMAddInModule.
How do the equivalent of Enabled: = false in the Outlook application?


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
    i : integer;
begin

    FSynchro.bStoped := false; // TFSynchro = class(TForm)
    FSynchro.Visible := true;
    FSynchro.ProgressBar1.Position := 0;
    FSynchro.BringToFront;

    Enabled := false;

    for i:= 0 to 100 do
    begin
        if FSynchro.bStoped then break;
        FSynchro.ProgressBar1.Position := i;
        Application.ProcessMessages;
        Sl eep( 50 );
    end;

    Enabled := true;
end;


Thanks

Hi Stan,

There's no such possibility. You need to open a modal form or develop a synchronization mechanism. I will be able to tell you more , if you provide more details about your task.

I chose a simple solution:
I created a modal dialog box that has a reference TadxCOMAddInModule.

This works well.
Thank you for your help.
