  • Hello,

    You can close a custom task pane by clicking the arrow button on the pane itself, and then clicking close. But you cannot collapse the pane. But in order to reopen it, you will have to add some UI element like a button to the Ribbon. In other words, your application has to be responsible for allowing the user to open the pane once it is closed.

    The following MSDN topic provides an example of how to do this in Outlook - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb296010.aspx.
