[Outlook 2013] Help with inline response needed

Hello everybody,

I have an Outlook Add-In which currently works fine with Outlook 2007-2013.
Is is displayed in the Compose-Window, Reply-Window and Sent-Messages-Window.

Now I have seen that Outlook 2013 introduced the "inline response" feature. I have tried to follow
the howto guide (HowTo) but now I have the following problem:
How can I display the Add-In (Ribbon) in the "normal" Windows (Compose, Reply, Sent) AND also in the inline response
view as part of the "COMPOSE TOOLS" part?

Thanks a lot and best regards,

Christian

Hello Christian,

You need to use two separate ADXRibbonTab components: one will show its controls in the OutlookMailCompose Ribbon, the other one is demonstrated in the sample project supplied with
How To: Customize the context ribbon of Outlook 2013 inline response.

Hello Andrei,

thanks for your reply.
I already suspected as much :-(
Can I somehow connect the new ribbon to the old one? Because there are complex logics working here to enable/disable certain parts of the Ribbon etc. which I cannot so easily copy...
So I would need to have the new Ribbon be a "pointer" to the original Ribbon...

Thanks a lot and best regards,

Christian

No. You can use intermediary methods to perform the same things on two sets of controls. For instance, instead of setting A.Visible = true and B.Visible=true, you can call SetVisible(true) which calls A.Visible = true and B.Visible=true.
