OlkContactPhoto Interface

A control that shows the contact picture for a contact item if a contact picture has been defined, or the contact picture button if no contact picture has been assigned.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.dll)

public interface OlkContactPhoto : _OlkContactPhoto, 

This is a .NET interface derived from a COM coclass that is required by managed code for interoperability with the corresponding COM object. Use this derived interface to access all method, property, and event members of the COM object. However, if a method or event you want to use shares the same name under the same COM object, cast to the corresponding primary interface to call the method, and cast to the latest events interface to connect to the event. Refer to this topic for information about the COM object. For information about the method and property members of the COM object, see _OlkContactPhoto. For information about the event members of the COM object, see OlkContactPhotoEvents_Event.

Before you use this control for the first time in the forms designer, add the Microsoft Outlook Contact Photo 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 the contact picture button that is displayed at runtime if no contact picture has been defined. If a contact picture has been defined for a contact, the contact photo will be rescaled to fit into the control space. This control supports Microsoft Windows themes.

For more information about Outlook controls, see Controls in a Custom Form. For examples of add-ins in C# and Visual Basic that use Outlook controls, see code sample downloads on MSDN.
