Hi. I am new to Add-In Express. I am trying to create an add in that requires the user to login to another system....

I have created a form using the adxOIFormsManager. When the user clicks on a button, I try to instantiate the form, but when I display it, it locks Outlook:

FrmLogin oDlg = new FrmLogin(m_StationConfig);
if (oDlg.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
{
}

Any help or sample would be appreciated it.

Hello Javier,

Panes are used differently: they are created by the forms manager, not by you. The manager creates a form instance and, when it is suitable, embeds the form in the Outlook window. As you can see, this description doesn't foresee creating an ADXOlForm modally.

You can create a UserControl providing controls for the user to login and show that UserControl (multiple instances of it) on all instances of your ADXOlForm. When the user logs in, you can scan all instances of the ADXOlForm and show another UserControl on them; the UserControl provides access to the functionality of your add-in.
