HowTo: Find the MAPI folder from Outlook Property page

If the user has selected the folder A and right clicks folder B and then properties, inside my Outlook folder property page I cannot find the MAPIfolder.

If I use the CurrentFolder of ActiveExplorer, then of course I'm taking folder A.

There is no any property in ADXOlPropertyPage about the folder.
How can I found the correct folder that my property page really belongs to?

Hi Thanasis.

You can use the NamespaceOptionPagesAdd event handler to obtain the folder.


private void adxOutlookEvents_NamespaceOptionPagesAdd(object sender, object optionPages, object folder)
Outlook.MAPIFolder f = folder as Outlook.MAPIFolder;
