Is it possible to add a custom button to AddressBook=>properties view? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Is there a possibility to add a new custom button to the properties dialog of the global addressbook using vb?

    Attached is a screenshot of the dialog, my paint skills aren't the best but I hope it shows my point. Ask if there is something unclear.

    Best Regards

  • Hello Alvaro,

    No, it is not. The Outlook object model doesn't provide anything for this.

    However, you can intercept the button click and cancel the default action. Then you can display your own dialog. Also, you are free to use common Windows API techniques (such as subclassing).
