Hello Ankur

There are two ways to customize Persona Menu

1. using XML (You Know)

2. Writting Dll using manage (C#.Net) code and Unmanage code (C++)

We can write Dll using Smart Tag SDK. you can reffer following link to get

Detail Idea of it. It is best place to start with.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb190881(office.11).aspx

you can refer Tutorials in that.

Thanks,

Hi Jitendra,

Thanks for your valuable reply. I got success in creating a managed code dll

for smart tag but that is not serving my purpose. The smart tag i have

created is appearing only for each office editor applications (like word...),

but i wanted to extend the persona menu by adding smart tag (additional

actions) into it. Can you please guide me to do appropriate registry entries.

The same thing i am able to achieve using xml.

Rgds,

Ankur

Hello Ankur,

What you want to do actually?

Can you explain your problem in brief?

You have created a new smart tag or you want to customize Persona Menu?

Thanks.

Hi Jitendra,

I want to create a managed dll which could create an entery in Persona menu

(according to my knowledge, this can only be done under additional action sub

menu) and handles the action(click) and perform some operation.

Hello ankur,

Try to download Smart Tag SDK. In that you will get sample code and one

help file (.CHM). That help file will be sufficient for you.

Thanks.

Hi Jitendra,

Yes i have defiend an action class and declared CLSID.

I have implemented a smart tag for office editors like offive word, outlook

editor(the window you get when you click "new") and other office editors.

there my action class is working fine.

But the same this is not working if i go for Persona Menu. i feel that i am

not doing correct registry entry for action class.

Thanks and regards,

Ankur.
