calendar view

A view specifying a calendar rendering of a container object containing a collection of appointments. CDO applications can access a calendar view using the CalendarView object.

categorized view

See grouped view.


(Collaboration Data Objects) A technology for building messaging or collaboration applications. In versions previous to 1.1, CDO was called OLE Messaging; in version 1.1 it was called Active Messaging. It is designed to simplify the creation of applications with messaging functionality, or to add messaging functionality to existing applications.

CDO libraries

The set of programmable object libraries that expose messaging-related objects for use by an Automation controller. An application written in a tool supporting Automation can reference several object libraries and access all their objects in a single program. The CDO libraries are the CDO Library and the CDO Rendering Library.

CDO Library

An Automation programming interface that exposes programmable MAPI objects to a messaging user application. For more information, see the CDO Library Introduction and Overview.

CDO Rendering Library

An Automation programming interface that exposes programmable HTML rendering objects to a server-side script running on a Web server. For more information, see Overview of CDO Rendering.

child folder

A folder that is a child object of another folder, which is the child folder’s parent folder. Also referred to as a subfolder.

child object

An object derived from another object, which is referred to as the parent object.

client-side script

Script that is decoded and run at a browser.

Collaboration Data Objects

See CDO.


An object that contains zero or more objects of the same class. The CDO Library supports large collections and small collections. The CDO Rendering Library uses only small collections. Also referred to as a collection object or an object collection. See alsocontainer object.

collection object

See collection.


A vertical section of a table view that specifies rendering for one property on the contents of the container object being rendered. CDO applications can access a column using the Column object.


(Component Object Model) An architecture for defining interfaces and interaction among objects implemented by widely varying software applications. A COM object instantiates one or more interfaces, each of which exposes zero or more properties and zero or more methods. All COM interfaces are derived from the base class IUnknown. Technologies built on the COM foundation include ActiveX, MAPI, and OLE.

common view

A predefined, persistent table view defined globally for all messaging users and all folders.

container object

An object that contains a collection of objects of one or more related classes. For example, a folder can contain both messages and child folders. See alsoobject renderer.

container renderer

A rendering object used to render the contents of a CDO container object in tabular format. CDO applications can access a container renderer using the ContainerRenderer object.


A series of messages that pertain to the same topic. All the messages in a conversation typically have the same subject. Also referred to as a thread.

custom view

A nonpersistent table view created individually by a particular application, which applies only to one folder and one messaging user.
