PidTagSelectable Canonical Property

Applies to: Outlook 2013 | Outlook 2016

Contains TRUE if the entry in the one-off table can be selected.

Associated properties:
Data type:
Address book container


This property is used primarily for visual formatting of a one-off table. Templates can be grouped by creating an entry that indicates the heading for the group. Setting this property to FALSE for the heading ensures that the user can select only the actual templates in the group and not this heading entry.

This property applies only to a one-off table, not to an address book hierarchy table.

MAPI allows an address book provider to group items visually by two means. First, certain rows can function as headings by being unselectable. Second, the selectable items can be indented relative to their headings by using the PR_DEPTH (PidTagDepth) property. This property is used in such grouping to indicate whether or not this item can be selected from a list to create a one-off address. For example, if a client has several templates for building fax addresses, it can display them as follows:

FAX templates (depth 0, not selectable)

Local (depth 1, selectable)

Long-distance (depth 1, selectable)
