I'm trying to place the Outlook Address Book on a form.
When I run the code below I don't get any errors I just don't see anything

There is no
oContacts.Top, oContacts.Left,oContacts.Height,oContacts.width or Visible properties

Any help would be appreciated.


Reference
Microsoft Office Outlook Viewer Control

Private Sub Command1_Click()

Dim oContacts As OLXLib.ViewCtl
Set oContacts = New OLXLib.ViewCtl

oContacts.AddressBook


End Sub

Instead of "Reference" try looking for it under Add "Component" instead. Then it *might add a control to your VB control box that you could add to the form.

I had rather not use a control because in some instilations  the control will be be available.

Are they a way to create do the same thing using the Microsoft Office Outlook Viewer Control Reference instead of the control?

If you don't add the control through the designer, then you need to add controls to the form:

Me.Controls.Add(control)
