ItemSend Event

Office 2003

Occurs whenever an item is sent, either by the user through an Inspector (before the inspector is closed, but after the user clicks the Send button) or when the Send method is used in a program. This event is not available in Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript).

Sub object_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)

object    An expression that evaluates to an Application object.

Item    Required. The item being sent.

Cancel     Optional. False when the event occurs. If the event procedure sets this argument to True, the send action is not completed and the inspector is left open.


The following Microsoft Visual Basic/Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example shows how to cancel the ItemSend event in response to user input. The sample code must be placed in a class module, and the Initialize_handler routine must be called before the event procedure can be called by Microsoft Outlook.

Public WithEvents myOlApp As Outlook.Application

Public Sub Initialize_handler()
	Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
End Sub

Private Sub myOlApp_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
	Dim prompt As String
	prompt = "Are you sure you want to send " & Item.Subject & "?"
	If MsgBox(prompt, vbYesNo + vbQuestion, "Sample") = vbNo Then
		Cancel = True
	End If
End Sub
