External OneNote Powertoy Contest winners

External OneNote Powertoy Contest winners

  • Comments 14

The contest was split into two parts: internal and external contestants.

In this post I would like to announce the external winners:

  1. IIONA by Dmitri Alekseyenko
    This tool allows you to copy from any application directly into OneNote.
  2. Word2OneNote by Brad Covelle
    This powertoy will install a button in Word 2003 that allows you to send information directly into OneNote.
  3. Daily Journal by Andy Gray
    Andy already went ahead and posted this online you can find it here: OneNote Daily Journal PowerToy.
  4. OneSnap by Andrew Wheeler
    This powertoy would add a toolbar button in Internet Explorer that allowed you to send information to OneNote. Andrew posted about this here: OneSnap preview.
  5. DropShadow by David Huang
    Finally this app allows you to create some cool thumbnail views of images and send them over to OneNote.

All of the contestant winners received Visual Studio 2005 and a Tablet PC, and they should have gotten these LONG ago.

If you are on this list and have updates that you would like me to post please email me or post a comment!

  • All above powertoys are used for importing things into OneNote,but how can I develop a custom toolbar in OneNote(something like the PDFMaker bar in word)?
  • In my last post I announced the external OneNote Powertoy Contest winners and in this post I would like...
  • Great question Mike.  The MSDN documentation for OneNote 2007 is located here:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/office/program/onenote/

    There are a couple articles up there that is all about learning the OneNote 2007 API.

    As for the toolbar buttons we will have limited functionality to have your code run out of proc in OneNote via a COM component.  The documentation for this isn't online yet as I am still working on it and will post it once it is complete.

    Let me know if you have other questions!
  • Where can I found examples of methods NavigateTo and FindPages?
  • descapa , I found that there is a place on OneNote add-ins,in OneNote menu,Tools->Options->Other,I search the web,but I didn't found any infomation on how to write OneNote add-ins. would you mind telling me where I can found more information except the above one?
  • descapa ,where can I found more information on interface IOneNoteAddIn?
  • How to retrieve the objectId of an object? Is there any example ?
  • RE: where can I found more information on interface IOneNoteAddIn?

    The documentation for IOneNoteAddIn is mpending, what is what I was talking about before.  Like I said before it is still being worked out.

    RE: How to retrieve the objectId of an object? Is there any example ?

    You can do this by just looking @ the output, the ID is in output XML.  Please read the documentation on MSDN:

  • Based on the winners it doesn't look like the creator of the ImageWriter power toy entered the contest. I hope you guys hooked him up. That power toy filled a huge hole in the product.

  • According to http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/ms406042(office.12).aspx,the first argument (bstrObjectID) of NavigateTo method could be any id of sections,pages or Outline elements:

    >NavigateTo Method
    >The NavigateTo method navigates to the object >that you specify. For example, you can navigate
    >to sections, pages, and Outline elements within >pages.

    I tried all three type of them,but NavigateTo method failed when I pass outline objectID to it,it return with error message 0x80042014,which means hrObjectDoesNotExist (Object does not exist). Can't the NavigatoTo method use Outline element's objectID as it's first argument?

    Is there a function or a property which can return the ID of the current visible/active page in OneNote workspace? please give me some hints on  how to get that ID.

    btw: I found that the isCurrentlyViewed properties of any pages of current session are all true.




  • Question:  How can I find the Word2OneNote power toy? Or IIONA?
  • I know how to get the current page ID now.thanks,descapa,you're right,I should look at the document more carefully.
