Hello, I have two questions:

-Is there a possibility to receive an event, if the selected date in the appointment-calender changes? Or how can I notice that the selected date changed?

-How can I create a new folder in my Exchange-Folder in which I can show Outlook-Forms?

Hi Aldi.

1. There is not such event in Outlook Object Model. But you can create a new appointment item (Outlook._Application.CreateItem method) to get the current calendar date using the Start property of the Outlook._AppointmentItem interfase.
2. You can use the Add method of the Outlook._Folders interfase.


P.S. Note that we take up your forum requests in the order we receive them. Besides, it may take us some time to investigate your issue. Please be sure we will let you know as soon as the best possible solution is found.

Thank you for your response.

Is there no other possibility to notice this Action (calendar-date-change).
Because, we would like to add a new form in the bottom of the appointment-folder. In this form we show additional data from an other source. This data depends on the selected date in the appointment-calendar. If the user change the date, our additional data has to reload with a new date-range.
Is this possible over the event ExplorerSelectionChange?

Thx

Aldi, you can use the ExplorerSelectionChange event to refresh the current date on the form but this event doesn't fire when the date is changed by the user in the Outlook calendar.

Aldi, you can ask about it Microsoft. Probably they will help you. Please let me know if you manage to find any solution.

I ask in a MS Outlook-Newsgroup, here the response from a MVP-Outlook


No, there's no way to tell if the user changes the date unless it fires an
Explorer.SelectionChange event. That would be the only way. After that
there's no way to tell what the current selection is unless you can somehow
deduce that from what's selected, if anything is selected.
