I have a custom Search Folder that displays a filtered list of contact items.
Is it possible to develop a custom button that has the same feature as the "New Message to Contact" button does in the Contacts View and can be used on the searched contact items in my custom Search Folder?
It could be a custom toolbar, ribbon, or context menu button, as long as I can use that functionality.
I'm using Outlook 2007, Visual Studio 2010 using C#.
If I'm in the Contacts panel, the "New Message To Contact" button would allow me to click when I select one or multiple contact items.
(see this screenshot
From my understanding, normally they are two ways to view the search folders:
1. from the Mail panel (see screenshot
2. click the Folder List button (see screenshot
I already setup an AdvancedSearch method to let my custom Search Folder's searched result only display contact items, so all of my items in my custom Search Folder are Contacts type, not Mail, nor Tasks, or any else.
However, the view (display mode) of those contact items is different than they are displayed in the Contacts panel (see this screenshot
]), causing me not able to click the "New Message to Contact" button anymore.
My goal is to be able to select all of my searched contact items that are in my custom Search Folder and be able click a custom button that has the same functionality as the "New Message to Contact" does so I can send an email to all of my selected contacts.
