The ApplicationElement element is a container for one or more ElementClass definitions. The Name attribute value is passed to the custom form in the ae URL parameter.

<ApplicationElement Name="">

The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.


Attribute Description


The value that is passed to the form by Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access for Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) in the ae URL parameter. The following names are available in Outlook Web Access:

  • AddressList
  • Dialog
  • Folder
  • Item
  • Options
  • StartPage
  • WebPartFolder
  • PreFormAction

Because you map a forms registration to a content class, and because content classes can only be applied to folders and items in the Exchange store, only the following values apply to custom forms registrations:

  • Item
  • Folder
  • PreFormAction

Child Elements

Element Description


A container for mappings between custom forms and the content class and action that the custom forms are used for.

Parent Elements

Element Description


Specifies to which user interface level the custom form mappings apply.

Outlook Web Access allows your application to specify an action that will be taken before the form is called for a custom content type. Use the Name="PreFormAction" attribute to specify these.
