RuleCondition RuleCondition RuleCondition Interface


The RuleCondition object represents either a condition that must be met before a rule executes, or an exception condition that must not be met before a rule executes.

public interface class RuleCondition : Microsoft::Office::Interop::Outlook::_RuleCondition
public interface RuleCondition : Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook._RuleCondition
Public Interface RuleCondition
Implements _RuleCondition


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 _RuleCondition.

RuleCondition is the base class for rule conditions that are supported in programmatic rule creation. The classes derived from RuleCondition include:

The Rules object model provides partial parity with the Rules and Alerts Wizard in the Outlook user interface. It supports the most commonly used rule actions and conditions. Although it does not support creating rules with each rule action or rule condition that the Wizard supports, you can still enumerate and enable these rule actions and conditions in existing rules.
