    Question Detecting Outlook Button Clicks

    Suppose I open up Outlook 2007. On the bottom left, there are four folder buttons: Mail, Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks.

    I will have a C# plug-in running and wondering if there is anyway to detect when the "Tasks" button is clicked.

    Thank you very much in advance!

    It might not be that easy. Looking just a bit I find this. I have never used Outlook, but if you can add a custom button maybe you can modify the previous one so it does something when you click it (log into a file, show message etc).
    Or create a new one, delete the old if you can actually add the same functionality. Or put the new one on top of the old one if your are able to do such a think.

    Look at the Office SDK as it may have some information about this.

    Eh... I saw that stuff already
    But I just decided to go on a slightly different route so It's all ok. Thanks though!
