Accessing _RecipientControl1 (Assigned To)

I am creating a custom task form in OL2007, and I want to make sure the

"Assigned To" box (bound to the Assigned to field) is not empty when Send is

clicked. The name of the field associated with the Assigned To text box is

_RecipientControl1. How do I access this _RecipientControl1 box to check if

the value is null or not? And perhaps even to set it equal to a default

recipient via code if I choose to? I tried Item._RecipientControl1, Item.

UserProperties("_RecipientControl1"), and Item.UserProperties.Find

("_RecipientControl1"), but each time I run it with the below code there is

an error that "Object variable not set." Code doesn't make it to any message

boxes (see below). Any suggestions?

Sub cmdSend_Click()

Item.Assign()

'If Item._RecipientControl1 <> "" Then 'Trial 1: Invalid character

'If Item.UserProperties("_RecipientControl1") <> "" Then 'Trial 2:

Object Variable not set

If Item.UserProperties.Find("_RecipientControl1") <> "" Then 'Trial 3:

Object Variable not set

MsgBox "_RecipientControl1 <> NULL"

'Item.Send()

Else

MsgBox "_RecipientControl1 = NULL"

'MsgBox "Please assign task before sending."

End If

End Sub

P.S. sorry for the commenting, but thought it might shed some light on what

I've tried and what I'm trying to accomplish

Try checking the value of Item.Recipients.Count instead. In general, you

should work with control property values only when you want to change the

appearance of a control or when the control is not bound to an Outlook

property.

Works like a charm. Thank you! I think I was confused about the

_RecipientControl1 thing, good to know that I can bypass dealing with it!
