Is there a way how to retrieve selected text of MailItem from Outlook's reading pane in Explorer window via Addin-express :?: Or is there any another approach how to do this?

Thanks for answer

Hi Joe,

The Outlook object model doesn't provide a way to get the text selection in the Reading Pane. Currently, we don't know if it is possible to get the selected text in any other way. To be more precise, we assume it is possible in some (or maybe, all) situations via Win32 API but the exact answer requires a lot of research work.
