How to get Outlook contacts in Visual C++

Hello experts,

I am a newbie.  I wanna write an Add-in to get Outlook contacts in Visual C++.  Most sample codes out there are in Visual Basics.  I appreciate for any hints, comments, suggestions, or sample codes.  Thank you very much for reading.

sincerely,
LVT

Are you a newbie to VC++?  If so, you need to start with something much easier than this.  If you have experience programming in VC++ then you should be able to convert from VB without a problem.
It would probably be a good idea to post the VB code you have seen and want to use as a model.  Maybe someone will convert it for you.

What version of OL?  You will need the object model for that version.

yes, i am a newbie to VC++.  Since I have a project related to Outlook add-in, that's why I start with something harder.  Thank you for your comments & suggestion.  I think I must start with something easier then come back to this, and probably post a VB code so that someone convert it for me.  Thank you again!

The version of OL is 2K+

I can give you Visual Foxpro code.  The code is quite easy.  I will have to wait until tonight when I get home.  Are you going to close the question or hold it open for later help?

thank you, slink9.  I'd like to take a look your code, maybe it helps.  I am a newbie in this forum too.  I don't know how to close the question.  If I close it, can I reopen it for later help?  

thanks,

Welcome aboard.

You closed it properly.  You just open another question if you have another question.  By the way, it is generally expected to give an A unless you explain why.  The B is justified here since I didn't actuallt solve the problem - just gave a little advice.

Here is the code for firing up an email in VFP.

#define olMailItem 0
#define olTaskItem 3

subj = "Test EMail"
    bod = "Test send from VFP"
    loOutlook=createobject("outlook.application")
    loOutMail=loOutlook.createitem(olMailItem)
    with loOutMail
         .to = "address@hotmail.com"
         .subject = subj
         .body = bod
         .send
    endwith

The few things that will change in VC is the DEFINE statement.  I believe you will use something other than WITH .. ENDWITH in VC.

Good luck, and happy learning.

hi lvt,

i am also new to vc++, I actualy found code to do it, and modified it to allow me to enter a telephone number and it would pop the outlook contact using the contact.display function. the vfp code above looks too similiar to vb for me. I have lost my code for the app and now looking again to find this code. If I rememver the best way was to use com, and then use the item collection of the contact object, if you could point me at any web sites with this code please let me know.
