UserProperties UserProperties UserProperties Interface


Contains UserProperty objects that represent the custom properties of an Outlook item.

public interface class UserProperties : System::Collections::IEnumerable
public interface UserProperties : System.Collections.IEnumerable
Public Interface UserProperties
Implements IEnumerable


Use the UserProperties property to return the UserProperties object for an Outlook item. This applies to all Outlook items except for the NoteItem.

Use the Add(String, OlUserPropertyType, Object, Object) method to create a new UserProperty for an item and add it to the UserProperties object. The Add method allows you to specify a name and type for the new property. When you create a new property, it can also be added as a custom field to the folder that contains the item (using the same name as the property) by setting the AddToFolderFields parameter to True when calling the Add method. That field can then be used as a column in folder views.

Use UserProperties(index), where index is a name or one-based index number, to return a single UserProperty object.

You can use the UserDefinedProperties property of the Folder object to retrieve and examine the definitions of custom item-level properties that a folder can display in a view.

To get or set multiple custom properties, use the PropertyAccessor object instead of the UserProperties object for better performance.
