We have a requirement to do the following -

1. When a user reads in an e-mail (in the reading pane), look for special tokens inside the e-mail that the backend system sends.

2. If the right tokens are present, insert an "Open" button inside the e-mail either in the header section or in the e-mail text

3. When the user clicks on the Open button, open the e-mail. That's where we have the Add-In express Inspector pane to show the right content.

How can I modify the existing e-mail to put a button and then perform a C# operation when that button is clicked? Couldn't find anything about this on the web. Do I need to modify the form dynamically? If yes, how?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Hello Khurram,

You can place BottomSubpane (it is ADXOlForm that will be placed between Grid and Reading Pane) that will contain a button.
By clicking on the button you can enable ADXOlFormsCollectionItem and open a selected item in a new inspector, then disable ADXOlFormsCollectionItem to prevent the Inspector Subpane from showing in Inspectors opened in the standard way.
You can control the activity of the buttom in the SelectionChange event.

Please, you can download the sample:
