Explorer.BeforeMove event (Outlook)
Occurs when the Explorer is moved by the user.
expression A variable that represents an Explorer object.
|Cancel||Required||Boolean||False when the event occurs. If the event procedure sets this argument to True, the operation is not completed and the explorer or inspector is not moved.|
This event can be cancelled after it has started.
The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example prompts the user with a message before the explorer is moved by the user. If the user clicks Yes, the explorer can be moved by the user. The sample code must be placed in a class module such as
ThisOutlookSession, and the
Initialize_Handler() subroutine should be called before the event procedure can be called by Microsoft Outlook.
Public WithEvents myOlExp As Outlook.Explorer Sub Initialize_Handler() Set myOlExp = Application.ActiveExplorer End Sub Private Sub myOlExp_BeforeMove(Cancel As Boolean) 'Prompts the user before moving the window Dim lngAns As Long lngAns = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to move the current window? Use your keyboard to make your selection.", vbYesNo) If lngAns = vbYes Then Cancel = False Else Cancel = True End If End Sub
