Hi guys,

I am attempting to create an appointment from a VSTO ...

I have a custom dialog for entering the requisite data for the appointment which pulls information in from a database - when the ok button in the custom dialog is pressed, a procedure executes filling in information and then saves the appointment item ... similar to the following ....

private void CreateAppointmentUsingCreateItem()
Outlook.AppointmentItem appItem = OutlookApp.CreateItem(
Outlook.OlItemType.olAppointmentItem) as Outlook.AppointmentItem;
if (appItem != null)
// insert item details - start end etc
// ...

But, the dialog still shows.

How can I avoid the dialog showing ?
