ADX Extensions and Reading Pane

In your Extensions Overview you are showing just the Outlook Grid with a Extensions Pane which looks very good. But regular you have on the right site (or bottom) the reading pane with the preview of the mail.

We planed to use the ADX Extensions to have not the reading pane showed up, because we want to show the informations over a own form using the ADX Extensions. Now my question: Is there a way to disable the reading pane dynamicly?

You can find a CommandBarButton (Right, Bottom, or Off buttons) programmaticaly and call its Execute method.

Hi Fedor!

Thank you for your fast response! Do you have some references to this?

I tried following, but get no luck!

Outlook.Explorer olExplorer = _OutlookApp.ActiveExplorer();
Microsoft.Office.Core.CommandBarPopup btn = (Microsoft.Office.Core.CommandBarPopup)olExplorer.CommandBars.FindControl(Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoControlType.msoControlDropdown, 7095, System.Reflection.Missing.Value, System.Reflection.Missing.Value);
if (btn != null) { btn.Execute(); }

This should execute "Create new Mail" at Outlook 2003 over Menu!

Thanks for your help.
