Access Outlook application/current mailitem from a module in a separate assembly.

I'm developing a product suite that will have several optional features. Each feature will be implemented as a separate .NET assembly.

I am using an ADXAddinAdditionalModule, however I'm not entirely sure how to get back to the Outlook Explorer or Inspector from here.

I *think* i can do something like Me.MainModule.HostApplication, but this is an untyped object.

Is there something I'm failing to understand?


Thanks,
Eriq

Hello Eriq,

In the main add-in project, there's a property such as ExcelApp below; it casts the HostApplication property:

public Excel._Application ExcelApp
{
    get
    {
        return (HostApplication as Excel._Application);
    }
}


You can add it to your additional module.

If the feature implemented in this class library project must communicate with the main module, consider referencing the main project from this one. Or, you can use late binding.
