Hi,

I want to extend the ui for a invitation adding a ribbon tab with a editcontrol. No problem.

Sending the invitation I want to extend the subject of the invitation automatically with the content of the editcontrol. This should happen only for resource-eMails (example: conference room).

How can I check if the recipients eMail is of type 'resource-eMail'?

Is it possible to extend the subject of the invitation only if the receivers-eMails is of type 'resouce-eMail'?

Thanks
Christian

Hi Christian,

Sorry, but I don't quite understand you. What 'resource-eMail' do you mean?

Anyway, please try to use the ItemSend event of the AddinExpress.MSO.ADXOutlookAppEvents component to modify the subject of the outcoming e-mail. Does it work?

Hi Eugene,

in the inspector I have the editcontrols 'Subject' and 'Location'. Beneath 'Location' I have a button 'Rooms'. With a selected room I mean a 'resource-eMail'.

Hi Christian,

How can I check if the recipients eMail is of type 'resource-eMail'?


In the ItemSend event handler you can check out the type of the item is being sent. For example:

private void adxOutlookEvents_ItemSend(object sender, AddinExpress.MSO.ADXOlItemSendEventArgs e)
{
   if (e.Item is Outlook.MeetingItem) System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("resource e-mail");
}


BTW Did you try to use the ItemSend event?

Hi Eugene,

thanks for your help!

Yes, I checked the event handler.

private void adxOutlookEvents_ItemSend(object sender, AddinExpress.MSO.ADXOlItemSendEventArgs e)
{
var meetingItem = e.Item as Outlook.MeetingItem;
if(null == meetingItem) return;
meetingItem.Subject = meetingItem.Subject + " - ADDED FROM ADDIN";
meetingItem.Save();
}

Well, I have two issues.
1.) The Subject is not changed.
2.) If I would succeed in changing the subject in the ItemSend eventhandler, it would be changed for all recipients.
Do you know a strategy how change the settings (subject) if only one of the recipients should be affected?

Thanks
Christian

Hi Christian,

Did you try to debug? How many times is the ItemSend event triggered?

Hi Eugene,

I debuged. The ItemSend event is triggered only one time.
The recipient list contains the list of all recipients.

private void adxOutlookEvents_ItemSend(object sender, AddinExpress.MSO.ADXOlItemSendEventArgs e)
{
var meetingItem = e.Item as Outlook.MeetingItem;
if(null == meetingItem) return;

Debug.WriteLine("########################################");
Debug.WriteLine("ItemSend: " + meetingItem.Subject);
foreach (Outlook.Recipient recipient in meetingItem.Recipients)
{
Debug.WriteLine("Items recipient.Adress: " + recipient.Address);
}

meetingItem.Subject = meetingItem.Subject + " - ADDED FROM ADDIN";
meetingItem.Save();
}

Hi Christian,

In that case there is no way to edit the subject for a particular recipient.

Hi Eugene,

ok.

Well, is it eventually possible to insert some information (a string) into a custom field in the meetingItem on ItemSend? My idea is, that on something like a "NewMeetingReceived" event the eventhandler checks the custom field and its eMail. If the custom field contains something and its eMail is a resource eMail the eventhandler could eventually extend the subject.

Thanks
Christian

Hi,

I went and debug the code:


            var meetingItem = e.Item as Outlook.MeetingItem;
            if (null == meetingItem) return;

            int iCount = meetingItem.Recipients.Count;
            int iNo = 0;
            for (iNo = 1; iNo <= iCount; iNo++)
            {
// got each individual receipients
                MessageBox.Show(meetingItem.Recipients.Item(iNo).Address);
            }

            meetingItem.Subject = meetingItem.Subject + " - ADDED FROM ADDIN";
            meetingItem.Save(); 

// when I checked the Outbox, the text was appended to Subject Line
