We just picked up the package and our add-in needs to access data that is secured using a different set of credentials. I added a Property Page and it is saving/reading the settings, but how do I gain access to them in a Form.

And yes, I am new to this add-in world.

Thanks for any help/direction.

Hi Thad.

What the Form do you mean? Please describe the issue in more detail.

What I have is a Add-in Express Form that is attached below the outlook todo pane. It has some controls on it to display information. In order to know what information to retrieve, I have to connect to a webservice. The webservice and credentials are set on a Property Page under Tools>Options that I setup. The Property Page seems to save and retrieve the information for me. What I am needing, is the way to retrieve these settings from where they are stored.

Hi Thad,

You can move the code, which retrieves settings, to the add-in module.
Then use the ADXOlForm.AddinModule property to access this code.

Is there example somewhere of how to pull this information from the AddinModule. I looked at the object and do see how to get that information. Also, I do not know the ID that is being used to store my information. All I have is are text boxes on the property page and I set the dirty and call OnStatusChange().

Sorry if I am not being clear.

I am going to restate what I am looking for in hope that is will be more clear. I have a ADXOlPropertyPage that saves a TextBox Value to some store location. I would like to get that TextBox Value out of its saved store for use in my Addin.

Thanks. Less than a week of use and its already saved a ton of time.

Thad,

See example:


<The AddinModule code>
public class AddinModule : AddinExpress.MSO.ADXAddinModule
{
    ...

    public void SaveDataToRegistry(string Data)
    {
        ...
    }

    public string GetDataFromRegistry()
    {
        ...
    }
  
    ... 
}
</the AddinModule code>


<save data from ADXOlPropertyPage>
public class PropertyPage1 : AddinExpress.MSO.ADXOlPropertyPage
{
    ... 

    private void PropertyPage1_Apply(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        (AddinExpress.MSO.ADXAddinModule.CurrentInstance as OutlookPropertyPage.AddinModule).SaveDataToRegistry(textBox1.Text);
    }
    ...
}
</save data from ADXOlPropertyPage>

<load data to ADXOlForm>
public class ADXOlForm1 : AddinExpress.OL.ADXOlForm
{
    ...

    private void ADXOlForm1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        textBox1.Text = (AddinExpress.MSO.ADXAddinModule.CurrentInstance as OutlookPropertyPage.AddinModule).GetDataFromRegistry();
    }

    ...
}
</load data to ADXOlForm>
