View.Reset method (Outlook)

Resets a built-in Microsoft Outlook view to its original settings.


expression. Reset

expression A variable that represents a View object.


This method works only on built-in Outlook views.

To properly reset the current view, you must do a View.Reset and then a View.Apply. The code sample below illustrates the order of the calls:

Sub ResetView() 
 Dim v as Outlook.View 
 ' Save a reference to the current view object 
 Set v = Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentView 
 ' Reset and then apply the current view 
End Sub


The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example resets all built-in views in the user's Inbox to their original settings. The Standard property is returned to determine if the view is a built-in Outlook view.

Sub ResetViews() 
 'Resets all standard views in the user's Inbox 
 Dim objName As Outlook.NameSpace 
 Dim objViews As Outlook.Views 
 Dim objView As Outlook.View 
 Set objName = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 
 Set objViews = objName.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Views 
 For Each objView In objViews 
 If objView.Standard = True Then 
 End If 
 Next objView 
End Sub
