string SMILBody { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The SMILBody property is used for attaching multimedia objects, such as images, video, and audio, to MMS MobileItem objects. Specify URLs to multimedia files in the Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) markup for the SMILBody property of the MMS message.

The following Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code example shows how to create an MMS MobileItem object by using the CreateItem(OlItemType) method of the implicit Outlook Application object. The code example adds a text file attachment to the MobileItem object, and sets the PidTagAttachContentId Canonical Property property of the attachment. The example then initializes the SMILBody property, specifying an image file att1.jpg, and saves and displays the MobileItem object.

Sub CreateMobileItemMMS ()

    Dim myMobileItem As MobileItem
    Dim myAttachment, myAttachment1, myAttachment2 As Outlook.Attachment
    Set myMobileItem = CreateItem(olMobileItemMMS)
    Set myAttachment1 = myMobileItem.Attachments.Add(
        "C:\att0.txt", olByValue)
    ' Sets the PidTagAttachContentId property of the attachment.
        "", "att0.txt"

    myMobileItem.SMILBody = "<?xml version=""1.0"" standalone=""yes""?>" & _
        "<smil><head><meta name=""author"" content=""MSOfficeOlkOMS""/>" & _
        "<layout><root-layout width=""128"" height=""128""

        "<region id=""Text"" left=""0%"" top=""75%"" width=""100%"" 
            height=""25%"" fit=""slice""/>" & _
        "</layout></head><body><par dur=""invalid""><img src=""att1.jpg""
