Add Command Bar & Button to Contacts Tab ?!

Hi,

I need to get a custom button onto the Contacts screen/tab, just to the right of the native Command bar grouping that has New Contact/Print/Move/Delete/Search etc. It needs to only appear when the Contacts screen/tab is active.

It seems that I need an adxCommandBar, and a adxCommandBarPopup inside that ?...it pretty much needs to emulate the Dial control, where clicking it gives you a drop down of items I can add to a bound collection. So the same control pretty much, just inside its own grouping, beside the grouping that has the native Dial control.

I'm also not sure what ID's to use to have it appear beside the aforementioned native command bar grouping.

I'm developing against Outlook 2007 for now. Will worry about other versions later (although a solution that works on all would be optimal obviously).

Please advise,

Barry O'Neill

Hi Barry,

Sorry for the delay in my reply.
Yes, you can use the ADXOlExplorerCommandBar component for such tasks.
