I'm using outlook 2010.  What code would I use to insert a rectangle into the current message.  I then want to format the rectangle to have no fill, and the color red.

Thank you,

Troy

One way I can think of doing this (Only if Word is the email editor)

Get the Word.Document object using the Inspector.WordEditor method and then insert a shape.

You may use the Word macro recorder to insert a shape in the document and then use that :)

Try the following block as you will see the parameters are shape, left, top, width, height

Chris
With Application.ActiveInspector.WordEditor
        With .Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, 10, 50, 100, 250)
            .Fill.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 255, 255)
            .Line.ForeColor.RGB = vbRed
        End With
    End With
