Integration of Outlook calendar with WinJS metro style application


  • We are developing one windows 8 metro application using Win JS. In our application we need to integrate the Outlook calendar and Outlook notes into our windows 8 metro application. Please help us is there any API/Source code or any article related to our problem.

    Thanks in advance.

  • I believe there is no way to connect to Outlook (the client application), because of the sand-boxing of windows 8 style apps.

    Have you found any Documentation or API for your need in Outlook? That would be my first step. If outlook has no way to let you integrate, you don't even have to look at connecting to that API from a Windows-8-Style-App.

    Of course, you could also walk the other way and implement what ever you would like by connecting directly to the server using the EAS protocol, however this will be a lot of work and pretty difficult.
