Hi,

I am trying to create an option for keyboard only users to be able to switch focus between the Outlook inspector/explorer windows to our plugin side bar. Are there any shortcut keys or options available in add-in express to be able to do the same?

Regards,

Hello Hrishikesh,

Add-in Express doesn't provide such a shortcut. You can use a keyboard shortcut component to achieve this.

Hi Andrei

I am doing this for Accessibility features. When the focus is on the outlook components the only shortcut keys that work for are ribbons. I have some shortcuts assigned for the form controls, so when I use the form control shortcuts nothing happens. The reason that I understand is form loses focus and then it cant gain back control.

Kindly advice.

Hello Hrishikesh,

Did you check if ADXKeyboardShortcut meets your need? I expect that that shortcut would work when the focus is off your pane.
