VSTO - Appointment Item

Hi All,

I have an VSTO add in that I'm working on.  Inside of my form, I'd like to have a button that does some fucntions, and then brings me back to the appointment page.

(EG: simulate the appointment click in the show ribbon).

I've found the document that says the control name is ShowAppointmentPage . . . but haven't found a way to access it yet.

If anyone knows how to do this with an inspector or by getting to it from the ribbon it would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance.

            Outlook.Inspector y = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveInspector();
            y.PageChange += new Outlook.InspectorEvents_10_PageChangeEventHandler(y_PageChange);

and then set a break point on the line in this function:
        void y_PageChange(ref string ActivePageName)
            string test = ActivePageName;

test will now hold the pagename of what you just clicked, so you can go back to it using:
