Views Object (Outlook)

Contains a collection of all View objects in the current folder.

Use the Views property of the Folder object to return the Views collection. Use Views(index),where index is the object's name or position within the collection, to return a single View object.

Use the Add method of the views collection to add a new view to the collection.

Use the Remove method to remove a view from the collection.

The following example returns a View object of type olTableView called Table View. Before running this example, make sure a view by the name 'Table View' exists.

Sub GetView() 
 
 'Returns a view called Table View 
 
 Dim objName As NameSpace 
 
 Dim objViews As Views 
 
 Dim objView As View 
 
 
 
 Set objName = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 
 
 Set objViews = objName.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Views 
 
 'Return a view called Table View 
 
 Set objView = objViews.Item("Table View") 
 
End Sub

The following example adds a new view of type olIconView in the user's Notes folder.

Note Note

The Add method will fail if a view with the same name already exists.

Sub CreateView() 
 
 'Creates a new view 
 
 Dim objName As NameSpace 
 
 Dim objViews As Views 
 
 Dim objNewView As View 
 
 
 
 Set objName = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 
 
 Set objViews = objName.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderNotes).Views 
 
 Set objNewView = objViews.Add(Name:="New Icon View Type", _ 
 
 ViewType:=olIconView, SaveOption:=olViewSaveOptionThisFolderEveryone) 
 
 
 
End Sub

The following example removes the above view, "New Icon View Type", from the collection.

Sub DeleteView() 
 
 'Deletes a view from the collection 
 
 Dim objName As NameSpace 
 
 Dim objViews As Views 
 
 Dim objNewView As View 
 
 
 
 Set objName = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 
 
 Set objViews = objName.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderNotes).Views 
 
 objViews.Remove ("New Icon View Type") 
 
End Sub
