Hi

In the ExplorerSelectionChange event I am doing the following:

Dim selection As Outlook.Selection = Nothing
selection = explorer.Selection.GetType


Randomly my users get the error:

"The Explorer has been closed and cannot be used for further operations"

How can I handle this better I was thinking of:


Dim selection As Outlook.Selection = Nothing
Try
selection = explorer.Selection
Catch
Exit Sub
End Try


Would this catch this issue and cleanly exit out of the event? or would I still get the Microsoft dialog box appear.

I had the same issue a while back getting the selection.item(1) but the following code fixed this issue can I apply this as above?

Try
object_ = selection.Item(1)
Catch
Exit Sub
End Try


Thanks

Matt

Hi, Matt.

Yes, certainly. You can apply this code to the Selection object. It should help. I use the same code when I work with the Selection in Outlook.
