Hi,

I am developing an addin for Outlook in C#,

I have created a form region as a "Separate" FormRegionType, I want it to

show up as an action with a drop down.

can anyone please help me with this ?
 
I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish. A separate form region

displays as a separate "page" in the Inspector window. It can contain one or

more drop-down lists, but it is not itself a drop-down.

to do, because i want the user to be able to choose from drop down on which

form region to redirect.

property from where i can set it up ? or can i do it by C# code ?

Hi,

just to explain my case a bit,

actually i want my form region to show up in main contact ribbon of Outlook,

when i click the button on main ribbon , it shows the form region (thats how

it is behaving right now which is alright) and the lower bottom of the button

is a drop down, showing some option (actions to perform).

How can i achieve this in C# ? or by using visual studip IDE ?

cheers

it is a separate form region, should show button on main contact ribbon. *

There's no way to make the region's button on the ribbon do that. Maybe you

don't understand that a form region is a separate page in the Inspector

window. The UI for the region itself is built on the region's surface, not in

the ribbon, which just provides a way to display the region. If you want

other functionality in the ribbon, that would be done independent of the form

region.

You can, of course, put a drop-down control on the region surface. Details

depend on whether you're building your region with an .ofs file or totally in

VS.

Alright I understand it now,

Is it possible to make a custom ribbon group in the main outlook ribbon to

contain buttons of one or more custom form regions (the default one, the way

it displays it).

thanks for your response.
