16.1. Use the Built-in Smart Tags

Problem

How can I enable a user to scroll through a list of names on a form and launch Outlook’s Contacts dialog box, so that the user can add the selected person as a contact?

Solution

You can use the built-in Person smart tag to add or change contact information stored in Microsoft Outlook. The Person smart tag allows you to take the following actions:

  • Send an email message to a contact.

  • Schedule a meeting with a contact.

  • Open and edit a contact’s information.

  • Add the name in the control to your list of contacts.

It’s very easy to add the Person smart tag to a label, text box, or combo box control on a form by following these steps:

  1. Open frmEmployees in 16-01.mdb in design view, select the FullName text box, and press F4 to bring up the Properties window. Click the Data tab and click to the right of the Smart Tags option to load the Smart Tags dialog box.
