Bind outlook contact fields to form region controls

I am currently trying to create Outlook form regions in Visual Studio 2010 (VB.net) for Outlook 2010.
I created the Outlook Form Region and some controls.

What I need is for my company text box to link to the contact item company name.
I have a lot of controls that need to be linked to the outlook fields.

By link I mean: When I open the form region the data is pulled in. And when I write data to the control I need it to write the information back to the contact.

Please help.

Thanks,

Hi, TMG255.

Is your form a contact form?  Have you opened the properties of your controls and bound them?

It is a contact form.
I have not bound them, how do I do that?
Right-click each control and select Properties.  When the dialog-box appears select the Value tab.  Click the Choose Field pulldown and select the Field to bind to.

There is no Value tab. Are you talking about within Outlook? I am working in Visual Studio 2010.

There is no value tab.
Yes, I am talking about inside Outlook itself.  To the best of my knowledge you can only design a custom form in Outlook.
