Hi, group.

I am writing an e-mail dialog in SWT. I am told that SWT supports OLE and
therefore provides access to certain Microsoft programs.

My question is: can I somehow connect to Microsoft Outlook and retrieve all
the addresses in the Address book and then just display them in a list in my
dialog window.

Any ideas?

Thanx,
- Kalman

If Microsoft Outlook provides an ActiveX control for this, you could embed
the ActiveX control. However, the specifics of how to use each ActiveX
control needs to determined by reading the documentation for that ActiveX
control and the typelibrary for that control.

See:

Where would you recommend I read about the behavior of outlook's activeX
control?

Try MSDN, for example:
