Hello, i'd like to make more smart my controls in my VBA project. Instead of

Windows Forms 2.0 which ist the primary option when using Windows Forms I am

trying to use the controls of Microsoft Windows Common Controls 6.0 (SP6).

In particular: ListView, ListviewControl, ImageList, ImageCombo... and I'm

experiencing problems when using these controls. I´d like to show a list of

mails and an special icon associated depending of the sender. This ist not

possible with Windows Forms 2.0 and that's why i'm exploring this option.

Is it maybe not recommend the use of these controls in a VBA project??

Thank you.

What problems are you experiencing, please be specific.

What version of Outlook and what version of Windows?

Where are you trying to use those controls, in an Outlook custom form or a

VBA UserForm?

So i'm using:

Outlook 2003 11.8217 (SP3).

Windows XP Professional (SP2)

I'm trying to use these forms in an VBA UserForm.

Basically the problem appears in design mode when trying to link an

ImageList to a control which could use symbols or icons, i.e. Toolbar

Control, ListView...

I add one or more pictures to the ImageList Control, that's no problem. The

problem comes when i go to the Toolbar Control, click on (custom) and the

property pages will show. On the General tab I select Imagelist but there's

anything else than <None>. I was expecting to see the previously fullfilled

ImageList1 as selectable but it's not there, so I cannot add pictures to the

project (i didn't really go further because adding pictures is the only thing

i'm at this point interested on)

So, i would be very very happy if it was possible to use properly these

controls in VBA Forms..

Any help?

Thank you in advance...

It's very hit or miss, some of the VB6 controls work OK in UserForms, others

not so much. For example a DTPicker is OK, the image controls and image

lists don't seem compatible.

I'd probably do the coding in VB as a COM addin, then all those common

controls would work correctly.
