View Full Version : Microsoft Outlook Data Binding

19 Nov 2010, 11:23 AM

I have been asked to create a dashboard for MS Outlook using Extjs. I need a way to bind data to the underlying outlook objects.

I can create and outlook application object by doing:

var ol = new ActiveXObject("Outlook.Application")
this lets me create, read, update, and delete outlook items (mail items, task items, calendar items, etc.)

My initial thought is to write a custom DataProxy which wraps the outlook api to CRUD, but I am not sure this is the best approach. This is my first experience with ExtJS and I was wondering if anyone can offer any advice as to the best way to bind to the outlook data.
