Dear Experts,

This is a follow-up to question:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Java/Q_23495980.html

I have an Outlook template assigned the value "whatform" in the code below. In addition to setting the To, Subject, and Body, I would like to pass a value from the web page to a user defined field named "pig" in the template.

VB appears to use something like mailItem.UserProperties.pig = "bacon"; but this syntax doesn't work in Java.

Appreciate any help!!

Thanks much,
Ragnar
function OpenOutlookDoc(whatform) 
   { 
      try 
      { 
      outlookApp = new ActiveXObject("Outlook.Application"); 
      nameSpace = outlookApp.getNameSpace("MAPI"); 
      mailFolder = nameSpace.getDefaultFolder(6); 
      mailItem = mailFolder.Items.add(whatform);
      mailItem.To = "Ragnar64@some.net";
      mailItem.Subject = "eMail for you";
      mailItem.Body = "eMail for you.";
 
      mailItem.Display(0)
      } 
      catch(e) 
      { 
      // act on any error that you get 
      } 
   }

Dear CEHJ,

It worked with a slight modification - change [] to () i.e. - mailItem.UserProperties('pig') = "bacon";

Thank you very much - your "guesses" are much better than mine :)
