Reliable Way To Distinguish The Double 'Inspector Activate' Events?

Hello,

When the pair of 'inspector activate' events are called, what is the best way to distinguish between them?

I'll explain why I'm asking. If I open a reading inspector and click 'Reply', two 'inspector activate' events occur. The first one targets the old inspector (i.e., the mail item being replied to). The second one targets the new inspector (i.e., the one used for the 'Reply' being composed). I want code to execute only in the latter case and so I need to tell the two events apart.

Thanks,

Calvin

Thanks, Sergey.

I should have been more specific in my previous post. I am looking to change the content of the mail item tied to the new inspector. Is this possible during NewInspector?

Trying to apply your advice, my current method is to take the 'inspector' parameter of the NewInspector event handler, cast it into an Outlook._Inspector object, access that object's CurrentItem property, and finally use the Body / HTMLBody properties to change the mail item content. All this is being done in the NewInspector event, during which it seems to work.

However when the second 'inspector activate' call occurs, I find the content has reverted back to its original state. Would you have any ideas why this is?

Thanks again.

Hi Calvin.

You need to use the Save method of the mail item to save changes after the content has been changed.
