Hi,

ADX 2009, Outlook 2003 and up, VB.NET - i use an ADXOlForm shown under the reading pane to allow the user to make some modifications to the mail. The modifications are saved to the mail, but the reading pane is not updated. How can i force the reading pane to update its contents? Thanks for any hints...

Hi HJB,

You can try showing/hiding the Reading pane. To do this in Outlook 2000-2007, see www.add-in-express.com/forum/read.php?FID=5&TID=5227&MID=26019#message26019. Also, in Outlook 2007 -2010 you can use Explorer.ShowPane(...).

Hi Andrei,

i tried this, but the contents of the reading pane stays the same. Looks like Outlook is using some kind of 'cached' copy of the message thus using the old contents of it for displaying. If i open the modified message in an inspector window it also shows the old, unmodified contents of the message. Even switching to another folder and back doesn't update contents in reading pane or inspector ;( I have to close Outlook and restart it to see the modified contents of the message. Any idea how to force Outlook to clear it's 'message cache' and use current content of modified mails?

Hi HJB,

I have opened and changed an email in Outlook 2007.
When I click the Save button, the ReadingPane is updated automatically.
In Outlook 2003 the ReadingPane isn't updated.

So, I think it is impossible for Outlook 2003.
