OlkSenderPhoto Interface

A control that displays the sender’s contact picture for items that can be received via e-mail.

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

public interface OlkSenderPhoto : _OlkSenderPhoto, 

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 _OlkSenderPhoto. For information about the event members of the COM object, see OlkSenderPhotoEvents_Event.

Before you use this control for the first time in the forms designer, add the Microsoft Outlook Sender 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. This control supports Microsoft Windows themes.

If no contact item or contact picture exists for the sender, the control is blank. Right-clicking the control at runtime will display the sender's persona menu, an example of which is shown below.

Double-clicking the control will display the contact item inspector.

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.
