Outlook ADX Extensions - How much do I need to use/change?

Hi - The new ADX Extensions for Outlook look great, I've been looking for a while to be able to place .NET forms/usercontrols within the Outlook main shell.

My question is, I have a pretty well finished Outlook COM Add-in (C# with Shim) that doesn't use any Add-in Express products. How easy is it to be able just to use the ADX bits to do the window management for me, as in, will I have to rewrite a lot of my existing code just to be able to dock a window?

I have my own event/commandbar wrappers that work fine, and I was hoping that the ADX new bits would just be some extra code (that relies on the new ADX redist of course).

Some example code of a 'plain COM C# Addin' using the new ADX bits would be ideal and allow me to buy the new bits.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You cannot use the ADX Extensions for Outlook without Add-in Express.
The ADX Extensions for Outlook isn`t just some extra code. That`s why there are no such examples.

Yes, I know about the use of Add-in Express - that makes complete sense and I understood that.

I guess what I was asking for was the simplest possible example of the use of the ADX Extensions in a code snippet.

I didn't want to rewrite the rest of my existing Addin just because I wanted to use the new ADX Forms Manager component.

No problem, I'll keep looking. Thanks anyway.
