Hello, I've created an Outlook add-in with a Form region that contains

Windows Media player control, all works fine when running it, but my

question is how do I have the media control load the audio file that is

attached to the email when I open the email.

These message have their own message class with the form is associated with,

and they always contain one wave file.

Thanks

Frank

Get the Attachments collection of the item in question and iterate each

Attachment member object until you find the wave file. You can check the

Attachment.FileName property to see if the wave file extension is there.

Once you've found the attachment use the Attachment.SaveAsFile method to

save it to the file system, perhaps to a temp file, then call the player to

work with that file. After you are finished you may want to delete the

temporary file.

Thank you that did the trick... I was hoping that there would be some

"built-in" function that would allow me to access the file directly... but

the suggestion worked just as good.

Thank you
