Custom Task Pane in Outlook 2007?


I was asked at last night’s event if it will be possible to work with the actions / task pane in Outlook in the 2007 release of Office. The good news is that custom task panes are supported in Access, Excel, InfoPath, Outlook, PowerPoint and Word. Here’s a simple example of a custom task pane in Outlook 2007 (click to see full size).


I don’t know why I named my custom task pane “Wibble”. I just did.

    Sounds very like "Weeble". Remember those little toys that "…wobbled but won’t fall down!"?

    Maybe a "wibble" is the anti-Weeble!

    "Wibbles wobble and they do fall down!". Doesn’t bode well Mike that your subconscious has designated such a name for this functionality.

    I actually thought it was a Viz thing John… "Woop, woop. No more curry for me vicar!" and all that. Of course that was a long time ago and my memory’s failing… 🙂
