Hi,

How do i check whether a folder is hidden or not?

I have reference to RDOFolder2. Is there any property which identifies it as

hidden. If so, how do I differentiate.

There's no specific property that identifies a folder that's hidden, it all

depends on where it lives. Any folder under the IPM_SUBTREE folder in a

store is visible. Any folder in any of the other areas under the store

RootFolder are not visible. That includes folders under Common Views,

Finder, Views, etc.

You can set pidTagAttributeHidden (0x10F4) property to hide a folder (you'd

need to restart Outlook for the changes to take effect).

That's Exchange stores only though, isn't it?

No, I think any store would do - it is Outlook that hides the folder from

the list, the store provider still exposes the folder in the usual way.

Hmm, I see it when I'm in an EX store, not at all in PST stores. I'll play

and see if I can add the prop to a folder in a PST store and see if it

works.
