Creating a Meeting Request

Windows Mobile 6.5
A version of this page is also available for

Any Appointment becomes a Meeting Request when you retrieve its recipients list, specify one or more recipients, and then send the appointment information to the recipients.

  1. Create an instance of the Outlook Mobile application object and then use it to establish a POOM session. For more information, see Establishing a POOM Session.

  2. Create a PIM item. For more information, see Creating a PIM Item.

  3. Retrieve and populate the Appointment's Recipient List, as follows:

    pAppt->get_Recipients(&pRecipients);
    
    pRecipients->Add(TEXT("Kathryn Wilson"), &pRecipient);
    pRecipients->Add(TEXT("Blanca"), &pRecipient);
    pRecipients->Add(TEXT("Robert"), &pRecipient);
    
  4. Set each Recipient object's Address property by resolving each recipient against the Contacts List. Iterate backward through the Recipients List so that the remaining unresolved Recipients are not reordered when a Recipient is removed from the list:

    IPOlRecipient * pRecip2;
    int             iRecipientCount;
    
    pRecipients->get_Count(&iRecipientCount);
    
    for (int i = iRecipientCount; i > 0; i--)
    {
        pRecipients->Item(i, &pRecipient)
        pRecipient->QueryInterface(IID_IPOlRecipient, (LPVOID*)&pRecip2);
        pRecip2->Resolve(TRUE, &bResolved);
    
        if (!bResolved)
        {
            pRecipients->Remove(i);
        }
    
        pRecip2->Release();
    }
    
  5. Send the Meeting Request:

    pRecipients->get_Count(&iRecipientCount);
    
    if (iRecipientCount > 0)
    {
        pAppt->Send();
    }
    

The following code example demonstrates how to create a meeting request.

To make the following code example easier to read, security checking and error handling are not included. This code example should not be used in a release configuration unless it has been modified to include them.
void CreateMeetingRequest(IPOutlookApp * polApp)
{
    IRecurrencePattern * pRec;
    IAppointment       * pAppt;
    IRecipients        * pRecipients;
    IRecipient         * pRecipient;
    BOOL                 bResolved

    // Add a new Appointment.
    polApp->CreateItem(olAppointmentItem, (IDispatch**)&pAppt);

    // Set the Subject on the Appointment item.
    pAppt->put_Subject(TEXT("Recurring Appointment"));

    // Convert the date Thursday, 05/10/07 at 8:30 PM, to a DATE object.
    SYSTEMTIME st;
    DATE       date;

    memset(&st, 0, sizeof(SYSTEMTIME));

    st.wMonth = 5;
    st.wDay   = 10;
    st.wYear  = 2007;
    st.wHour  = 20.5;

    polApp->SystemTimeToVariantTime(&st, &date);

    // Set the Start date.
    pAppt->put_Start(date);

    // Add the recipients.
    pAppt->get_Recipients(&pRecipients);

    pRecipients->Add(TEXT("Kathryn Wilson"), &pRecipient);
    pRecipients->Add(TEXT("Blanca"), &pRecipient);
    pRecipients->Add(TEXT("Robert"), &pRecipient);

    // Resolve the recipients against the list of Contacts on the mobile device.
    IPOlRecipient * pRecip2;
    int             iRecipientCount;

    pRecipients->get_Count(&iRecipientCount);

    // Count downward so that removing recipient does not reorder the remaining unresolved recipients.
    for (int i = iRecipientCount; i > 0; i--)
    {
        pRecipients->Item(i, &pRecipient)
        pRecipient->QueryInterface(IID_IPOlRecipient, (LPVOID*)&pRecip2);
        pRecip2->Resolve(TRUE, &bResolved);

        if (!bResolved)
        {
            pRecipients->Remove(i);
        }

        pRecip2->Release();
    }

    // Send the Meeting Request.
    pRecipients->get_Count(&iRecipientCount);

    if (iRecipientCount > 0)
    {
       pAppt->Send();
    {
}
