Hi, I have a problem with the Form default properties, I'm working in Outlook

2003, when a property is changed from its Inspector, all events fire

correctly and some calculated fields are updated, but when the change is done

from the Outlook UI (I mean, the View with the Day,Month,Year arrangement),

the PropertyChange event doesn't fire, and the calculated fields remain the

same. I'm working with Custom Appointment items and need to perform that,

this all because a dumb user cries if the form can't be updated in "HIS" way.

Any one who can help me to perform that action with that exactly workpath??

Anyway, thanks 4ur help and time.

Regards.

Dream it, love it, code IT!!!

Please tell us about the code context. You've posted in a VBA/general
Outlook programming newsgroup, but part of your description suggests that
you're working with code behind a custom form.

Ok, the code is behind the custom form, it has the default Fields and some

custom tabs, controls and Fields, when the user changes the value from the

Appointment item inspector, I cath the PropertyChange event, in this case,

I'm working with the Duration Field.

I have 2 custom Forms, one for the Task item, and another for the

Appointment, the appointment is used to record Activities, and the Task to

group a set of Activities, when the user changes the Duration (from

inspector), the code fires, and the related parent Task is updated with the

SUM of all its activities Duration value, but when the Duration is changed

from Outlook UI, the PropertyChange event won't fire, and the Task calculated

value is not Updated.

I hope to be clear with my question here.

I want to fire the PropertyChange event, even is the Duration value is

changed from Outlook UI (this happens when you drag the Appointments borders

to cover more time).

Thanks for your comments.

Also, FWIW, I think that PropertyChange does fire, but not until the user
takes the focus off that item by putting it on another item or switching to
another folder. That time lag can be considerable and may be contributing to
the sense that it's not working.
