"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
//First thing you need to do is add a reference to Microsoft Outlook 11.0 Object Library. Then, create new instance of Outlook.Application object:
Outlook.Application outlookApp = new Outlook.Application ();
//Next, create an instance of AppointmentItem object and set the properties:
Outlook.AppointmentItem oAppointment = (Outlook.AppointmentItem) outlookApp.CreateItem (Outlook.OlItemType.olAppointmentItem);
oAppointment.Subject = "This is the subject for my appointment";
oAppointment.Body = "This is the body text for my appointment";
oAppointment.Location = "Appointment location";
// Set the start date
oAppointment.Start = Convert.ToDateTime ("10/10/2004 10:00:00 AM");
// End date
oAppointment.End = Convert.ToDateTime ("10/10/2004 2:00:00 PM");
// Set the reminder 15 minutes before start
oAppointment.ReminderSet = true;
oAppointment.ReminderMinutesBeforeStart = 15;
//Setting the sound file for a reminder:
set ReminderPlaySound = true
//set ReminderSoundFile to a filename.
//Setting the importance:
//use OlImportance enum to set the importance to low, medium or high
oAppointment.Importance = Outlook.OlImportance.olImportanceHigh;
/* OlBusyStatus is enum with following values:
oAppointment.BusyStatus = Outlook.OlBusyStatus.olBusy;
//Finally, save the appointment:
// Save the appointment
// When you call the Save () method, the appointment is saved in Outlook. Another useful method is ForwardAsVcal () which can be used to send the Vcs file via email.
Outlook.MailItem mailItem = oAppointment.ForwardAsVcal ();
mailItem.To = "recipients email address";
