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.

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

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.

Cheers
