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

The View object allows you to create customizable views that allow you to better sort, group and ultimately view data of all different types. There are a variety of different view types that provide the flexibility needed to create and maintain your important data.

  • The table view type (olTableView) allows you to view data in a simple field-based table.

  • The Calendar view type (olCalendarView) allows you to view data in a calendar format.

  • The card view type (olCardView) allows you to view data in a series of cards. Each card displays the information contained by the item and can be sorted.

  • The icon view type (olIconView) allows you to view data as icons, similar to a Windows folder or explorer.

  • The timeline view type (olTimelineView) allows you to view data as it is received in a customizable linear time line.

Views are defined and customized using the View object's XML property. The XML property allows you to create and set a customized XML schema that defines the various features of a view.

Use Views(index), where index is the name of the View object or its ordinal value, to return a single View object.

Use the Add method of the Views collection to create a new view.

Always use Save to save a view after you change any property of the view.
