My addin creates a nav pane extension (below the current nav bar)and places there a tree control for navigation to my own data. i'd like to, upon selection, invoke a webview for it such that the data is presented in the Explorer list (like the email list does when clicking on Inbox folder). I know it can be done with folders with the personal folders tree - can it be done with arbitrary extensions?

Hi Christopher,

I think yes. Please have a look at the HOWTOs page at our web site. See the 12 item.

i looked at your how-tos (Item 15 actually) and can see the clever trick you guys are doing (using the webview page of the outbox).

Couple of questions though:

1. can i have multiple versions of the webview page? i.e. i have tree view with multiple nodes....
2. even in your example, the header bar is not hidden (i.e. Inbox or Sent Mail or whatever). The form is indeed invoked but the header is not hidden. is there a way to do this as well?

Hi Christopher,

1. You can have multiple views for a folder.
2. Unfortunately there is no way.

Eugene,

One more related question. Since i've included some of your sample code (item 15), i can't seem to get the folders (of mail type specifically) to revert BACK to showing in a normal way i.e. not the webpaneview.

I've commented out all the code, changed the properties on the folders themselves and still no go... I know it's tied to the WebViewOn folder properties but cant find how/why it is being set.

As well, ALL of the mail type folders are using the same webpaneview form - EVEN if i explicitly set the folder property on my extension to just 2 custom folders....

perplexed....

Hi Christopher,

Note that context-related properties of an ADXOlFormsCollectionItem are processed using the OR logical operator. That is, the behavior can be caused by setting ExplorerItemTypes to AddinExpress.OL.ADXOlExplorerItemTypes.olMailItem.
