I would like to cancel the Outook reminder window if it is a taskItem reminder (and display another window).

I understood the adxOutlookEvents_Reminder event, but I dont knowhow to disable the window.

This may explain better :) :

   Private Sub adxOutlookEvents_Reminder(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal item As Object) Handles adxOutlookEvents.Reminder

        If (TypeOf item Is Outlook._TaskItem) And (item.Owner() = "me") Then
            ' Do not show the standard window
        Else
            ' Display default reminder window
        End If

    End Sub


Thank you
Thomas.

Hi, Thomas.

If you mark an item as "Complete" in the Reminder event handler then the standard Reminder dialog will not appear.

Hi,

Thank you for your quick answer.

Yes, this works for tasks items.

But I need to do the same for Appointments Items (in this case, I want to display another reminder window). I have tried to set the "ReminderSet" to False in the Reminder event handler, but this will display the standard window for 2 sec and then it disappears... This is not what I want.

Do you have any suggestion?

Thank you very much.

Thomas.

Hi, Thomas.

What version of Outlook do you use?
The point is that, Outlook XP and 2003 have the Reminders collection. This collection has some events that can be probably useful for you. E.g. the BeforeReminderShow event allows you to cancel the standard reminder dialog. I think that I should add this events to the next build of Add-in Express.

Hi Sergey,

I am using Outlook 2003, but I would like the add-in also work in previous versions (but this is not primordial).

A "BeforeReminderShow" event, with the possibility to cancel the standard reminder dialog will be perfect! Is there any way I can access It? Or only waiting a next build?

Thanks a lot.
Thomas.

I will add these events to the ADX code tonight and will send you a link to download ADX v.2.3 (beta). Is it OK?
