Hi I bought the ADX 2007 for .NET 2 days ago...
I'm developping a com addin for Excel 2003 in VB.net 2003

1st problem)
I've added a taskpane to the collection. I imported a user control in it.
When I debug the task pane is not there....

2nd problem)
I have a connection form that collects user credentials.
when calling the showDialog method in the Addin Module.
The form pops up and closes immediatly with a cancel dialog result.

The form.Show() works well.
So I declared the form WithEvents in the AddinModule to catch the Close event of the Login form and get some feedback of a ByRef variable I pass at construction. The close event is not caught back in the Module!

thanks for your feedback...

Hi Arie.

1. Task Panes are supported in Office 2007 only.
2. Please send me the code of the addinmodule. I will correct it.

P.S. Note that we take up your forum requests in the order we receive them.
