Retrieving a PIM Item from the Outlook Mobile Database

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

Retrieving a PIM item from the Outlook Mobile database involves calling the IPOutlookItemCollection::Item method on the collection.

The Outlook Mobile database consists of three separate PIM item lists contained in the three Default Folders: the Appointments folder, the Tasks folder, and the Contacts folder.

  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. Declare a reference to a generic PIM item collection:

    IPOutlookItemCollection *pItems;
    
  3. Declare a reference to a generic PIM item folder:

    IFolder *pFolder;
    
  4. Declare a reference to a Task item:

    ITask *pTask;
    
  5. Use the generic PIM item folder to get the Tasks folder:

    polApp->GetDefaultFolder(olFolderTasks, &pFolder);
    
  6. Use the Tasks folder to get the collection of Task items:

    pFolder->get_Items(&pItems)
    
  7. Get the third Task item from the collection of Task items:

    pItems->Item(3, &pTask)
    

The following code example demonstrates how to retrieve the third Task item from the Tasks Folder.

    IFolder                 * pFolder;
    ITask                   * pTask;

    polApp->GetDefaultFolder(olFolderTasks, &pFolder)
    pFolder->get_Items(&pItems);
    pItems->Item(index, &pTask)

    // ...
    // Do something with the Task item...
    // ...
}
