PropertyChange Event

Office 2003

Occurs when a standard property (for example, Subject or To) of a Microsoft Outlook item is changed. The property name is passed to the event so that you can determine which property was changed.

Sub object_PropertyChange(ByVal Name As String)

object    One of the objects in the Applies To list. In Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript), use the word Item.

Name    Required. The name of the property that was changed.


This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example uses the PropertyChange event to prevent someone from disabling a reminder on an item.

Public WithEvents myItem As Outlook.AppointmentItem

Sub Initialize_handler()
	Set myItem = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar).Items("Status Meeting")
End Sub

Private Sub myItem_PropertyChange(ByVal Name As String)
	Select Case Name
	Case "ReminderSet"
		MsgBox "You may not remove a reminder on this item."
		myItem.ReminderSet = True
	Case Else
	End Select
End Sub
