GetInspector Property

Office 2003

Returns an Inspector object that represents an inspector initialized to contain the specified item. This property is useful for returning a new Inspector object in which to display the item, as opposed to using the ActiveInspector method and setting the CurrentItem property.

expression.GetInspector

expression    Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.

Example

This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example uses the GetInspector property to return a new, inactive inspector for myItem, and then toggles the AdaptiveMenus property.

Sub DisplayAdaptiveMenus()
Dim myOlApp As Outlook.Application
Dim myItem As Outlook.MailItem
Dim myInspector As Outlook.Inspector
Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myItem = myOlApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
Set myInspector = myItem.GetInspector
myInspector.CommandBars.AdaptiveMenus = Not myInspector.CommandBars.AdaptiveMenus
myInspector.Display
End Sub
		

If you use Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) in a Microsoft Outlook form, you do not create the Application object, and you cannot use named constants. This example shows how to perform the same task using VBScript code.

Set myItem = Application.CreateItem(0)
Set myInspector = myItem.GetInspector
myInspector.CommandBars.AdaptiveMenus = Not myInspector.CommandBars.AdaptiveMenus
myInspector.Display
