Drag drop multiple attachments into Outlook RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am developing an Outlook Addin for converting attachments  into pdf.

    I intercept the BeforeAttachmentSave event for it and ask the user for necessary input for converting files into pdf.

    The problem comes when I drag multiple files and the event is called multiple times. I need to be able to know if multiple attachments are being dragged and dropped before the attach event is called. Is there a way to do this?

    Thank you

  • Hi charu,

    As far as I know, there is no such event can achieve the goal. But as a workaround, you can declare a Boolean variable(class level) to describe whether the message is already show to users. And display the message only the variable is false and set it to true if you have shown the message. Note, you need to reset it to false when you bind BeforeAttachmentSave event.

    Hope it is helpful.

    Best regards
