I need to write a plug-in for Outlook 2003 using VB.Net 2005 that captures the ItemSend event. Using the wizard I have created the attached class but having trouble working out how to create the ItemSend event handler.

What code do I use to hook into the event? What do I need to reference so intellisense displays the events etc for the Outlook object?
imports Extensibility
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices
Imports System.Windows.Forms
Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook
 
<GuidAttribute("8485231B-D0A4-4A14-9FBE-52894D3CA7AF"), ProgIdAttribute("MyTestAddin.Connect")> _
Public Class Connect
	
	Implements Extensibility.IDTExtensibility2
 
    Private WithEvents applicationObject As Object
    Private addInInstance As Object
	
	Public Sub OnBeginShutdown(ByRef custom As System.Array) Implements Extensibility.IDTExtensibility2.OnBeginShutdown
	End Sub
	
	Public Sub OnAddInsUpdate(ByRef custom As System.Array) Implements Extensibility.IDTExtensibility2.OnAddInsUpdate
	End Sub
	
    Public Sub OnStartupComplete(ByRef custom As System.Array) Implements Extensibility.IDTExtensibility2.OnStartupComplete
        MessageBox.Show("Addin Started")
    End Sub
	
	Public Sub OnDisconnection(ByVal RemoveMode As Extensibility.ext_DisconnectMode, ByRef custom As System.Array) Implements Extensibility.IDTExtensibility2.OnDisconnection
	End Sub
	
	Public Sub OnConnection(ByVal application As Object, ByVal connectMode As Extensibility.ext_ConnectMode, ByVal addInInst As Object, ByRef custom As System.Array) Implements Extensibility.IDTExtensibility2.OnConnection
        applicationObject = application
        addInInstance = addInInst
    End Sub
 
 
 
    Public Sub ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, ByRef Cancel As Boolean) Handles me.applicationObject.outlookevents.itemsend
        MessageBox.Show("Email Sent")
 
    End Sub
 
End Class

Hi,

AFAIK:

    Private WithEvents applicationObject As Object

needs to be

    Private WithEvents applicationObject As Outlook.Application


and
Public Sub ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, ByRef Cancel As Boolean) Handles me.applicationObject.outlookevents.itemsend

should be:

 Private Sub ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, ByRef Cancel As
Boolean) Handles applicationObject .ItemSend


hope this helps...

hi angelll,

What reference do I need to make in my project for the ... As Outlook.Application to work?

I currently get an error "type Outlook.Application is not defined"

sorry,
you need to add a reference to "Microsoft Outlook 9.0 Object Library"
Click on add Reference, select the COM tab and select "Microsoft Outlook 9.0 Object Library".

Thanks for your help angelll

I added a reference to "Microsoft Outlook 11.0 Object Library" as I'm using Outlook 2003 but was still getting the same error.

I changed the following line

Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook

to

Imports Outlook = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook

and it all works.
