Hi

Is it possible to replace pre-built MS Outlook Menubar entirely?
Note: I am using Add-in Express???? .NET v2.7.1762. Thanks

Hi Minhaj.

Now ADX doesn't support it. But it can be done manually in the code.
Please see the 'Adding and Managing Menu Bars and Menu Items' chapter in the 'Microsoft Visual Basi Help for Outlook' to learn how it can be done.(Tools->Macro->Visual Basi Editor->Help->Microsoft Visual Basic Help).

Hi Sergey.

That was fantastic.
Kindly would you please guide me in sorting this out one step further.

Here are couple of questions to put things clearer and transparent

1. Can I get rid off the built-in menu entirely?
2. If not, can I toggle menu bars (i.e, built-in vs. custom menubar) dynamically upon switching between folders?

Hope be clearer. Thanks in advance.

Hi Minhaj.

1. No, it is not allowed.
2. Yes, but you will have to do it manually in the code.
