SelectNamesDialog Object (Outlook)
Published: July 16, 2012
Displays the Select Names dialog box for the user to select entries from one or more address lists, and returns the selected entries in the collection object specified by the property SelectNamesDialog.Recipients.
You can instantiate an instance of the SelectNamesDialog object by calling NameSpace.GetSelectNamesDialog.
The dialog box displayed by SelectNamesDialog.Display is similar to the Select Names dialog box in the Outlook user interface. It observes the size and position settings of the built-in Select Names dialog box. However, its default state does not show Message Recipients above the To, Cc, and Bcc edit boxes. For more information on using the SelectNamesDialog object to display the Select Names dialog box, see Display Names from the Address Book.
The following code sample shows how to use the SelectNamesDialog object to display entries from the Contacts folder in a dialog box that resembles the Select Names dialog box in the Outlook user interface.
Sub ShowContactsInDialog() Dim oDialog As SelectNamesDialog Dim oAL As AddressList Dim oContacts As Folder Set oDialog = Application.Session.GetSelectNamesDialog Set oContacts = _ Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts) 'Look for the address list that corresponds with the Contacts folder For Each oAL In Application.Session.AddressLists If oAL.GetContactsFolder = oContacts Then Exit For End If Next With oDialog 'Initialize the dialog box with the address list representing the Contacts folder .InitialAddressList = oAL .ShowOnlyInitialAddressList = True If .Display Then 'Recipients Resolved 'Access Recipients using oDialog.Recipients End If End With End Sub
