Custom property/functionality not stored when I publish to a Public Folder

Hello and good evening!




On my form I have one checkbox ("CheckBox5") with value "Setup Required" in a yes/no format. I then have a frame ("setupNEEDS1") with other checkboxes and textboxes inside. The frame "setupNEEDS1" starts invisible, and with the code below it becomes visible upon clicking "CheckBox5", and invisible again if I click the checkbox again. The code works when I am designing and testing, but it does not work on the published form in a calendar for meetings.




I've chosen to use the CustomPropertyChange event because I've read (i.e. this link) that by using that function, any changes that I make should save when I use the form to schedule meetings.






My code looks like this, and while I design and test the form, it works perfectly:






Sub Item_CustomPropertyChange(ByVal myPropName)
Select Case myPropName
Case "Setup Required"
Set myPages = Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages
Set myCtrl1 = myPages("Form").Controls("setupNEEDS1")


set myBox = myPages("Form").Controls("CheckBox5")
If Item.UserProperties("Setup Required").Value Then


myCtrl1.Visible = True
Else


myCtrl1.Visible = False



End If
Case Else
End Select


End Sub








While designing the form in Outlook Developer mode, the code works exactly as I want it to. My problem is that when I publish the form to my Public Calendar, the visible/invisible functionality does not work, while everything else works. This is my first attempt working with custom properties, so I imagine that could be the case.




But then I still don't know why it's not arriving at the published end.




Can anyone see where I'm going wrong? Thank you so much!!!






P.S. I've got to thank the anonymous author of this page for the source of the code.

Some feature but don't work when published... oh, i bet the script is disabled as a security "feature". do you have unsigned macros enabled? Not sure if that is the solution... you might need to do something else. Does it work if you publish it to a local folder? Oh, do you have script enabled for the pf?




Anyway, we recommend dev questions in either the msdn forums at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/home?forum=outlookdev or in outlookcode.com's forum. We only answer the simple stuff. :)
 
Diane,




This is a little late coming, but I have found out just this morning that yes, my form including all the code works just fine when published to a local folder for my personal calendar, but it still does not work when published to a public folder using Outlook 2010 and Exchange Server 2008.




Any ideas what this points to?






Thank you for your help :)

somewhere in outlook is a setting to allow script in public folders- in 2007 and 2010 its in the trust center, email security dialog. I think default is no - enabled it and test again.
 
That was it! Thank you so much Diane! My goodness, I don't think I could thank you enough! You have no idea what sort of headache that was for me! Now I've just got to somehow change that setting company-wide...
