Error 287 on Inspector.Close()

Hey gang.

Fairly new to automating office/outlook. I am working on a COM add-in

written in VB6.

I am getting an error 287 when trying to do a Close() call on an Inspector

or MailItem.

I did a bunch of read up and this seems to be related to the security

features in office however my Application object does say it is trusted so

why am I hitting this issue?

So how do I work around this? Am I doing something wrong?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
 
What is teh relevant snippet off your code?

When exactly is your code executed (a particular event handler etc)?

It's coming from the Click event from the following:

Private WithEvents m_btnClose As CommandBarButton

The weird thing is I thought when security comes into play the prompts are

supposed to appear? I don't get any prompts just error 287.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks for the help!

I can't even do the following for example:

Dim olInspector as Inspector

Set olInspector = Application.Inspectors(1)

olInspector.Close(olDiscard)

I get the 287 error. I also get the 287 error if I try to close a MailItem

in the CommandBarButton Click event.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong? Is error 287 always related to security?

Like I said in the other post. I thought code security was supposed to prompt

when security is becoming an issue.

I'm not getting any prompts, just error 287 exceptions.

Thanks again in advance for all the help.

olInspector is one of the OlObjectClass enums, you cannot have a varable

with that name.

Secondly, change the code to the following (notice Inspectors.Item)

Set Inspector = Application.Inspectors.Item(1)

Inspector.Close(olDiscard)
