Hi NG,

i try to add an item to the outlook "new" option in the toolbar.

Its already done whith the main menubar but i'm currently unable to add an item to the submenus or the shown toolbars.

It would be great if some of you have an idea.

Thanks a lot

I don't believe that menu is customizable.

Search the CommandBars collection of the Outlook Explorer you want

to extend add the button to. Get the "Standard" command bar.

Find the CommandBarControl with ID 1874 which is the new drop down.

Cast it to CommandBarPopup

Use its Controls collection to add a CommandBarButton or whatever

control type you want.

' this is a global variable

Private WithEvents m_oNewButton as CommandBarButton

' this is in one of your functions

Dim oNew as CommandBarPopup

' get the new popup control

Set oNew = ActiveExplorer.CommandBars.FindControl(, 1874)

' add a button

Set m_oNewButton = oNew.Controls.Add(1)

m_oNewButton.Caption = "Hello World"

To react to the click event select the m_oNewButton from the left

combo box which is located above the source code. In the right

combobox select the Click entry. That should create a new

OnClick procedure which gets called when the button is clicked.
