Backstage View and ActiveX


M

Mark Wilson

Is it possible to display an ActiveX control in Backstage view on Outlook
2010 (thereby reusing a Property Page that was created for Outlook 2007) or
must the display in the Backstage view be created from individual components
such as buttons and checkboxes in the CustomUI.xml file?

Either that or use a backstage ribbon button to open a form or activeX
control. I've been using a button to open a form that has my property page
controls.

Thanks Ken.

While its one extra click for the user to get to the page, its may save
reinventing the wheel.

Even better might be a Fast button. That's like the Options button now in
Backstage. It fires a click handler which can open your form. You don't have
to have a tab with buttons, etc., just that Fast button.
