Occurs when an attachment has been added to an item.
Subobject**_AttachmentAdd(Attachment As Attachment)**
*object * An object that evaluates to one of the objects in the Applies To list. In Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) in an Outlook form, use the word Item.
Attachment Required. The Attachment that was added to the item.
This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example checks the size of the item after an attachment has been added and displays a warning if the size exceeds 500,000 bytes. The sample code must be placed in a class module such as ThisOutlookSession, and the
TestAttachAdd() procedure should be called before the event procedure can be called by Microsoft Outlook.
Public WithEvents newItem As Outlook.MailItem Private Sub newItem_AttachmentAdd(ByVal newAttachment As Attachment) If newAttachment.Type = olByValue Then newItem.Save If newItem.Size > 500000 Then MsgBox "Warning: Item size is now " & newItem.Size & " bytes." End If End If End Sub Public Sub TestAttachAdd() Dim olApp As New Outlook.Application Dim atts As Outlook.Attachments Dim newAttachment As Outlook.Attachment Set newItem = olApp.CreateItem(olMailItem) newItem.Subject = "Test attachment" Set atts = newItem.Attachments Set newAttachment = atts.Add("C:\Test.txt", olByValue) End Sub
This VBScript example shows how to use the AttachmentAdd event in VBScript.
Sub Item_AttachmentAdd(ByVal newAttachment) If newAttachment.Type = 1 Then Item.Save If Item.Size > 500000 Then MsgBox "Warning: Item size is now " & Item.Size & " bytes." End If End If End Sub
