  • From the Outlook object model, Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem, will return the currently open item. Cast it to an AppointmentItem, and you will have access to all the AppointmentItem properties. Here's a VB.NET snippet:

    Code Snippet

            Dim olApp As Outlook.Application
            Dim insp As Outlook.Inspector
            Dim appt As Outlook.AppointmentItem
            olApp = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application
            insp = olApp.ActiveInspector
            If insp IsNot Nothing Then
                appt = TryCast(insp.CurrentItem, Outlook.AppointmentItem)
                If appt IsNot Nothing Then
                    MessageBox.Show(appt.Start.ToString)
                End If
            End If
