The HTMLEditor property is only valid if the EditorType property of the item's associated Inspector is set to olEditorHTML.


*expression   * Required. An expression that returns an Inspector object.


Outlook blocks code that attempts to access the HTMLEditor property for security reasons. If you run a third-party add-in, custom solution, or other program that uses the HTMLEditor property in Office Outlook   2003, you may receive the following warning:

A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this? If this is unexpected, it may be a virus and you should choose "No".


The following Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) example uses the Click event of a CommandButton control named "CommandButton1" to demonstrate the listing of all HTML elements.

Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    Dim i         'As Integer
    Dim strHTMLType    'As String
    Dim strHTMLText    'As String
    Dim NL        'As String

    NL = chr(10) & chr(13)

    Set myInspector = Item.GetInspector
    Set myIExplorer = myInspector.HTMLEditor
    If myIExplorer.ReadyState <> "complete" Then  
'Test for complete loading of HTML doc
        For i = 0 To myIExplorer.All.Length - 1
            strHTMLType = TypeName(myIExplorer.All.Item(i))
            On Error Resume Next
'because not all elements support OuterHTML
            strHTMLText = ": " & NL &     myIExplorer.All.Item(i).outerHTML
            On Error GoTo 0
            MsgBox strHTMLType & strHTMLText
            strHTMLText = ""
    End If
End Sub
