Custom Appointment Form Message Body Deleted upon reply.

I'm developing a custom appointment form on outlook 2003. I have an extra tab

that holds user-defined fields including Yes/No and String value fields and

some code that manipulates items in that tab.

I have some code in my form that appends text to the body upon send. The

form is published in the organizational forms and works well except...

When a invitee receives the meeting invite, they can see the message in the

body just fine. But when he/she click's a response (accept, decline,

tentative) the entire message body is deleted and no message is shown.

If I remove my code to deal with the Item_CustomPropertyChange event, the

message body works fine. Some of my code example:

Sub Item_CustomPropertyChange(ByVal Name)

Select Case Name

Case "IsTrue"

Set oPage = Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages

Set oCntrl = oPage("My Tab Name").Controls("My Control")

oCntrl.Visible = Item.UserProperties.Find("IsTrue").Value

Case "Etc"

> ..

End Select

End Sub

Any ideas? Is it typical for an outlook custom form to delete the message

body if some internal error with the user-defined fields and code occurs on

the recipient side?

Any suggestions would be great! Thanks in advance

If you are referring to the message that is created when the user chooses to

edit their response to the meetinq request when replying - that is a

different form class: IPM.Schedule.Meeting.Resp. So you'd need to run code

to capture that item, or customize that form class. Also take a look at the

Action for your custom Appointment form - you have finer control over what

happens when a user replies/forwards, such as choosing the form class that is

used for those items.

Sorry for such a late reply, but wanted to thank you for the help! From your

post above, I figured I could add an If statement to check my message class

before continuing with the procedure. This is what I added:

Sub Item_CustomPropertyChange(ByVal Name)

If Item.MessageClass <> "IPM.Appointment.MyCustomForm" Then

Exit Sub

End If

> ...

End Sub

Nevermind. Scratch that... it's still not working. Back to the drawing board.
