You would have to disable Instant Search via the registry, before Outlook

starts. That would completely disable it for all Outlook functions however,

so you then end up crippling any search functionality that requires Instant

Search.

There are no events like you want.

An alternative would be to remove the various buttons, menu items and ribbon

controls used to open an instant search but that would require designing

your own ribbon from scratch and users could still add that functionality

back via the QAT.

It has been taking whole lot of time to build the indexing and overloading

exchange server and morever, we have to install WDS to make it work. We have

disable the indexing but still users are complaining that Instant Search is

not working (ofcourse).

It would be nice if you could point me out the registry entry that I could

reset to disable Instant Search Text box or is there any Redemption event

that get fired when user press enter after inserting some search word in

Search TextBox?

Do we have any Windows API for it if it doesn't supported in Outlook object

model?

Thanks.

Thanks Ken for your reply.

It would be nice if you could point me out the registry entry that I could

reset to disable Instant Search Text box.

I came to know that Outlook object model doesnt support Search Start event

but we can catch that event using Windows API. Could you please suggest me

some resource to read about this?

Thanks.

I have no idea about what window is being created when a search is started,

use Spy++ to find that out and then you can possibly close the window using

Win32 API calls. But I have no idea how that will interact with Outlook

itself, you'd have to experiment.

Look at the Outlook team blog for an article that appeared just the other

day about how the Google Apps Sync disables search, there's information

there about the registry settings.

Google for "ribbon start from scratch" or something like that to find a

number of articles on how to do that.

There is no special event that fires when search starts/stops.

pete

great tip from me (irony on):




install google apps, that will kill your outlook search very effective ;)


(irony off)




i do not know, but i need to search a lot in outlook, i have so much mails that it is not possible for me to overview all that.


do you search always "by hand"? or do you want to disable outlook search because you have another search tool?




greets
