Hi,

I have created a Outlook 2010 custom form that has a "Send button" on the main form.

Is there anyway I can "Hide" the send button on the toolbar / Ribbon while in this custom form (only) as some users are hitting this button which byepasses all the VBA Code.

Thank you in advance

There is no way I know of to hide the "Send" button on the ribbon when your custom form is open.  That's probably not really necessary though as there are other ways to handle this.  

1.  Move the code that runs when the user clicks your Send button to the Item_Send function in your form.  This function is triggered each time the form is sent.  If yout ake this approach, then the users can use the regular Send button while retaining all the functionality you had with your own Send button.

Function Item_Send()
    'Your code goes here
End Function

Open in new window


2.  Add an ItemSend event handler macro to each user's computer.  Move the code from your form to this procedure.  While this approach will solve the problem, it isn't especially practical particularly if you have more than a few people who will be using your form.
