  • It depends on what kind of custom form you want.  If you use the Design buttons on the Developer tab then you are using legacy form design where you must use VBScript for implementing code directly behind the form.  You can also design Form Regions in this mode and use native Outlook controls, but no .NET controls.

    If you want to use .NET, you have to use an Outlook COM add-in project in Visual Studio.  The Form Region wizard in that project will allow you to use .NET controls in a Form Region.
