The three PIM item types—Appointment, Task, and Contact—are the main object types in the Pocket Outlook Object Model, and the procedure for creating them is the same for all three.

  1. Create an instance of the Outlook Mobile application object and then use it to establish a POOM session. For more information, see Establishing a POOM Session.

  2. Declare and initialize a pointer to a new IAppointment interface object, as follows:

    IAppointment *pAppt = NULL;
    
  3. Call IPOutlookApp::CreateItem on the Outlook Mobile application object:

    polApp->CreateItem(olAppointmentItem, (IDispatch **)&pAppt);
    
  4. Create a SYSTEMTIME object, and initialize it with a start date of Monday, 5/10/2007 at 8:30 PM:

    memset(&st, 0, sizeof(SYSTEMTIME));
    
    st.wMonth = 5;
    st.wDay   = 10;
    st.wYear  = 2007;
    st.wHour  = 20.5;
    
  5. Convert the system time object to a Variant date/time object:

    polApp->SystemTimeToVariantTime(&st, &date);
    
  6. Set the Appointment Start property:

    pAppt->put_Start(date);
    
  7. Set the Appointment Subject property:

    pAppt->put_Subject(TEXT("Test Appointment"));
    
  8. Add the new Appointment to the Appointment collection:

    pAppt->Save();
    

    The Appointment item is added to the Outlook Mobile database.

The following code example demonstrates how to create an IAppointment interface object.

void AddNewAppointment(IPOutlookApp *polApp)
{
    IAppointment * pAppt = NULL;
    SYSTEMTIME     st;
    DATE           date;

    polApp->CreateItem(olAppointmentItem, (IDispatch**)&pAppt);

    memset(&st, 0, sizeof(SYSTEMTIME));

    st.wMonth = 5;
    st.wDay   = 10;
    st.wYear  = 2007;
    st.wHour  = 20.5;

    polApp->SystemTimeToVariantTime(&st, &date);

    hr = pAppt->put_Subject(TEXT("Test Appointment"));
    hr = pAppt->put_Start(date);

    hr = pAppt->Save();
}
