Before i consider registering the product, I would like to know if i can use the add-in-express dll to add an item to the standard contact form, and do you have any examples of such? I preferably would like an image to change on a command button at runtime dependent on a result of a method. I am using the trial .net version and writing in c#

Thanks in advance

chris.

Hi Sven,

Hi Chris,

Sorry for the delay. Today we have some problems with our hosting provider.

No, it is not possible If you mean fields on the contact form. Yes, it is possible if you mean command bars on the form. In the last case you can find a lot of samples in the Toys and the HOWTOs section:

Yes, it is possible. There are several ways, but I recommend in this case add several buttons and show / hide them. This allows you to avoid several Outlook specific "features".
