Hi,

from my addin??

The form region itself will be there in the designer, but to see how it

looks with the underlying item you need to run it from an addin.

Ok, I see it in the designer, but I can't see how it will look like with automatic layout.

Right, that and how it will look in conjunction with the actual form all

need to be run from an addin to see.

Easier way to Preview of Form Region

I found a way to make the design and "Preview" easier without a Add-in.

If you define the manifest in a way that you don't define a add-in instead provide the path to the Formregion file then you can

modify and test the form quite easyly.

Set the newly registered form as default form for a folder via the Outlook Userinterface (Folder-Properties)

When you now create a new item in this folder you will see your new Form in action.

The nice thing about it is, that you can modify the form in the designer, save it and just create a ew item an you will see the

changes without changing the Add-In or to restart Outlook.
