MVP Helmut Obertanner contributed two new code samples recently in May:
These code samples are presented in managed code (C# and Visual Basic). They are particularly interesting because they demonstrate the use of the .NET Framework Class Library together with the Outlook Primary Interop Assembly. "How to: Import Appointment XML Data into Outlook Appointment Objects" shows how to use the Microsoft COM implementation of the XML Document Object Model (DOM) to load and process appointment data in XML and return the data in Outlook AppointmentItem objects. "How to: Obtain and Log On to an Instance of Outlook" shows how to use Microsoft Language Integrated Query (LINQ) to verify if there is an Outlook process running on a computer.
You can view these code samples on the Office Online version of the Outook 2007 Developer Reference:
Starting from this update, you can select from the TOC or search for the topic "Latest Additions to the Outlook Developer Reference" to see updates to the Outlook 2007 Developer Reference in the most recent quarter. Code samples from Helmut in the last couple of months are listed there.
As usual, you can also select from the TOC or search for the topic "How Do I ... in Outlook" which lists all the how-to topics in the Outlook developer help.
