_AccountSelector.SelectedAccount Property

Returns an Account object that represents the selected account in the Microsoft Office Backstage view in Microsoft Outlook. Read-only.

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

Account SelectedAccount { get; }

In the Outlook user interface, you can select an account explicitly on the Info tab of the Backstage view, or you can select an account implicitly when you select a folder in a list of folders. The SelectedAccount property represents the currently selected account in the Backstage view for a given instance of the Explorer object. To determine the account that is selected implicitly, identify the Account object that has its DeliveryStore property equal to the Store property of the current folder (which is represented by the CurrentFolder property of the Explorer object).

This property returns Null (Nothing in Visual Basic) if no accounts are defined in the session's profile; that is, the Count property of the Accounts object that represents all the accounts in the current profile is 0.
