OlkDateControl Interface

A control that supports the drop-down date picker used in inspectors for task and appointment items to select a date.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.dll)

public interface OlkDateControl : _OlkDateControl, 

This is a .NET interface derived from a COM coclass that is required by managed code for interoperability with the corresponding COM object. Use this derived interface to access all method, property, and event members of the COM object. However, if a method or event you want to use shares the same name under the same COM object, cast to the corresponding primary interface to call the method, and cast to the latest events interface to connect to the event. Refer to this topic for information about the COM object. For information about the method and property members of the COM object, see _OlkDateControl. For information about the event members of the COM object, see OlkDateControlEvents_Event.

Before you use this control for the first time in the forms designer, add the Microsoft Outlook Date Control to the control toolbox. You can only add this control to a form region in an Outlook form using the forms designer; you cannot add this control to a Visual Basic UserForm object in the Visual Basic Editor.

The following is an example of the date control at runtime. This control supports Microsoft Windows themes.

This control can bind to any built-in or custom DateTime field. However, the control does not support any date format setting for the field, nor does it support the select range behavior that is available in the appointment inspector.

If the Click event is implemented but the DropButtonClick event is not implemented, then clicking the drop button will fire only the Click event.

For more information about Outlook controls, see Controls in a Custom Form. For examples of add-ins in C# and Visual Basic that use Outlook controls, see code sample downloads on MSDN.
