Hello,

I have some issues with the Add-in Express Regions professional.
My Top and Right region works as expected however, when I put my windows machine in sleep mode, and turn it on, my top and rightbar returns null.

//returns null
ADXTopbar adxTopBar = (ADXTopbar)ADXOlFormsManager.CurrentInstance.Items[1].GetCurrentForm();


I hope you can help me with this issue as this is very important.

Kind regards,

Reggie

Hello Reggie,

GetCurrentForm() relies on the active Outlook window. I suppose the issue occurs because there's no such window when you test that code. I suggest that you use the GetForm() method; it requires that you specify the Outlook window in which to look for a form instance.
