OlkInfoBar Object (Outlook)

A control that provides an area to display specific information on a custom form.

Version Added: Outlook 2007

Before you use this control for the first time in the forms designer, add the Microsoft Outlook InfoBar Control to the control toolbox. You can only add this control to a form region in an Outlook form using the forms designer; you cannot add this control to a Visual Basic UserForm object in the Visual Basic Editor.

The following is an example of this control at runtime. This control supports Microsoft Windows themes.


If there is no information to display, this control will automatically resize to a height of zero.

You can specify only the placement of the control, as there are no configurable options or settings other than its position.
