Hi Ken,

What do you mean?

"If it's plain text or RTF in the Outlook editor you cannot"

I cannot get the selection?

This is the scenario..

The user selects a part of the mail message/body and I should be able to

copy the selected items and store it as pdf.

Outlook.Selection selection = myActiveExplorer.Selection;

if (selection is Outlook.MailItem)

{

Outlook.MailItem mailItem =

(selection as Outlook.MailItem);

mailItem.Copy();

}

I believe that this would copy the entire mail right?

I only need to copy the selected objects..

and what would be the possible solution of converting a mail into pdf?

Thanks

I think you're confusing two different selections. Outlook.Selection is the

collection of items that are selected. That you can get. As far as getting

what text is selected in a specific email item what I said before goes.

Using the Outlook object model you can't get what text is selected.

If you are using the 3rd party library Redemption

(www.dimastr.com/redemption) you can get the appropriate editor for the type

of item (HTML, plain text, RTF) and that will let you get the selected text.

Otherwise, as I said before, for HTML you would get the HTML.Document and

use the HTML Document object model. For WordMail you get the Word.Document

and use that object model.
