Display form in WebViewPane

I've created a form that displays OK, except when displayed in the WebViewPane.

I assumed from what I read, the html page will automatically be generated. I think the problem may be that I only have VB.Net installed, but no ASP. Is this the cause, or is there something else that I should be doing?

Hi Wayne.

Do get any error messages on the HTML page?

No, there aren't any error messages, only a blank page.

Checking the properties, the Home page is supposed to be "C:\Documents and Settings\Main\Local Settings\Application Data\EEaddin\EEaddin2003.html". I've checked this file (it does exist), and the html is this

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN"> <html><head></head><body><object classid="clsid:ADE6F0D5-0005-406d-B0BF-F9879F000003" id="Container" width="100%" height="100%" VIEWASTEXT></object></body></html>

The form (at the moment) contains a toolbar and a RichTextBox, but nothing shows.

Hello Wayne,

Does restore a standard view after uninstalling or unregistering the ADX project?

Could you please provide more detailed information. What versions of ADX Extensions do you use? What Office version? Do you use the Shim project in your solution?

Could you please send me the add-in module source code.

Please, make sure the file C:\Program Files\Common Files\Afalinasoft\Add-in Express .NET Extensions for Outlook\ADXOlFormContainer.2003.dll exist.
Let me know about the result.

Hi Fedor,

I've tried restoring a standard view after uninstalling/unregistering the add-in, but no luck.

I'm using the latest version of ADX Extensions, Office 2003, but I can't create a shim project as I don't have C# installed.

And C:\Program Files\Common Files\Afalinasoft\Add-in Express .NET Extensions for Outlook\ADXOlFormContainer.2003.dll does exist.

Below is the code from the Addin module....

Imports System.ComponentModel
Imports Outlook = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook

Do you use Host configuration?

If you works without Shim you should use the 'Host configuration' dialog to configure Office applications to load .NET v1.1.4322 (right click on the addinmodule and choose the 'Host configuration' option, double click on Outlook and set v1.1.4322).

Let me know about the result.
