Inspector.BeforeSize event (Outlook)

Occurs when the user sizes the current Inspector.


expression. BeforeSize( _Cancel_ )

expression A variable that represents an Inspector object.


Name Required/Optional Data type Description
Cancel Required Boolean False when the event occurs. If the event procedure sets this argument to True, the operation is not completed and the Inspector is not sized.


This event can be cancelled after it has started. If the event is cancelled, the window is not sized.


The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example prompts the user with a warning message before the inspector is sized. If the user clicks Yes, the inspector can be sized. 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 myIns As Outlook.Inspector 
Public Sub Initialize_Handler() 
 Set myIns = Application.ActiveInspector 
End Sub 
Private Sub myIns_BeforeSize(Cancel As Boolean) 
 'Prompts the user before resizing the window 
 Dim lngAns As Long 
 lngAns = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to resize the current window? Use your keyboard to make your selection.", vbYesNo) 
 If lngAns = vbYes Then 
 Cancel = False 
 Cancel = True 
 End If 
End Sub
