Get outlook 2010 mailitem from ribbon-button-click in vb.net

Dear all,

I created an outlook addin with a ribbon. I use the ribbon type "Microsoft.Outlook.Mail.Read".

I put a button with the name "cmdCustomerFile" on the ribbon:

    Private Sub cmdCustomerFile_Click(sender As System.Object, e As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon.RibbonControlEventArgs) Handles cmdCustomerFile.Click


    End Sub

Open in new window


The ribbon appers on evey open mail. I would like to read some information out of the mail if I click my button. How can I get the mailitem for my actual mail in the click function?

I used the following source:

Dim objApplication As Outlook.Application = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application
Dim objInspector As Outlook.Inspector = objApplication.ActiveInspector()
Dim objMailItem As Outlook.MailItem = CType(objInspector.CurrentItem, Outlook.MailItem)

Open in new window
