Hello,

I am using a VSTO region which needs to be shown regardless of which folder is selected (ADXOlCachingStrategy.OneInstanceForAllFolders). The user also has the ability to hide this region, which is being performed by setting ADXOlFormsCollectionItem.FormInstances().Visible = false. The region is hidden as expected, however, if the user then changes Outlook folder, the region appears again.
Is there a specific approach to perform this functionality?

Thanks in advance,
Russ

Hello Russell,

When the user hides the pane, you set a flag; then you check the flag in ADXOlForm.BeforeFormShow and set ADXOlForm.Visible = false to prevent form from showing. Note that the form is displayed whenever the context matches that specified by properties of ADXOlFormCollectionItem.
