VSTO add-in: not able to execute ribbon control by MSO ID RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to insert calendar to a new e-mail within Outlook inspector window.

    To do it I use following code:


    And it fails with an error "Value does not fall within the expected range."

    I took MSO ID of the control here:

    Outlook version is 2010.

    What am I doing wrong? Maybe I need to call inspector instead of active explorer, but I haven't found how to do it.

  • Hello Andriy,

    I think you need to use the CommandBars property of the window where the control is located.

    Do you see an insert calendar control on a new mail item window?

  • Hello Eugene,

    Yes, I can this button:

    Do you know how to access CommandBars within inspector window?

  • ActiveInspector().CommandBars.ExecuteMso("CalendarInsert");

  • Thanks, it works. IntelliSense doesn't show CommandBars as one of the properties of Inspector and I didn't guess to write it manually.
