Hi All,

I am developing an add-in for Outlook 2003 and above and would like to add

an item to the context menu of the "new message" window. Is this possible?

We are using Word for the editor and HTML.

Thanks,

Tom

Outlook 2007 adds various context menus to the object model. Outlook 2010

more or less deprecates those and adds new context menu operations to the

ribbon. Outlook 2003 has nothing like that. You can try using the

CommandBars.OnUpdate method to get a hook to the menus, but that's a really

hacked thing that sort of works for Explorers but not really well at all for

Inspectors.

Hi Ken,

I have not found the context menu for Outlook 2007 for the new message

window. How do I hook to the context menu for the new message window for

Outlook 2007? Is this buried in the Word object model somewhere? I am only

interested in the HTML editing.

Thanks for your response!

Oh, you want the context menu for an Inspector? If that's there at all it

would be in the Word object model somewhere.

Yes that is exactly what I want and have been pounding my head on my desk

trying to do

I spent the other day trying to figure out how to retrieve the context menu

command bar and could not find it. Then I started thinking that we may have

an event for the Word that I don't know about. This is why I decided to

post to the newsgroup.

So you really don't know (or have not tried) how to get the context menu for

a new message window.

Is there a newsgroup for word add-ins?

Thanks!

I've never tried, but my guess is that the only way this would work (if it

would at all) is to handle Inspector.CommandBars.OnUpdate and then getting

the context menu that way. That's how we used to hack Explorer context menus

before they were exposed.
