Remove Send Local option from Send Mail

Post by aurimas » Mon Mar 23, 2020 4:51 pm

Good day,

I was searching this forum for a way to hide an option from send mail list by default as I don't want my users saving files on their local disk and did not find one. Do you have a quick solution how to hide Local from the picture below?

I thought I would just hide the whole list (cmd.emailMethods.list), but then you can go to Manage and set the default method to Local. And I can't hide Manage as other mailing clients need to be set up.

Thanks,
Aurimas

Hello aurimas,

Here's how you can do this:
viewtopic.php?f=66&t=31093&p=130537&hil ... er#p125354

Only you should extract the IUIX_List from the IUIX_Obj - then you can Remove the needed items.

Cheers,
Alex

Thanks for the reply,

I have implemented the handler and unfortunately my code does nothing, i thought this is because i should do things in OnCreateNewCtl(), but then it just breaks with no error. Could you point me to an exact place in the implementation of handler where do i put my deleting code?

Code: Select all

Public Sub OnNotify(nCode As Integer, pCmd As IUIX_Cmd, pItem As IUIX_CmdItem, pOwner As IUIX_Obj, nNotifyData As UInteger) Implements IUIX_CmdHandler.OnNotify
                Dim emailMethodsList As IUIX_List = CType(pItem.Ctl.Impl, IUIX_List)
                emailMethodsList.RemoveItems(1, 1)
                OldHandler.OnNotify(nCode, pCmd, pItem, pOwner, nNotifyData)
            End Sub

I have changed my implementation of a handler and moved logic to OnCreate

Code: Select all

Public Sub OnCreateNewCtl(pCmd As IUIX_Cmd, pParent As IUIX_CmdBar, ByRef pCtl As IUIX_Obj) Implements IUIX_CmdHandler.OnCreateNewCtl
                OldHandler.OnCreateNewCtl(pCmd, pParent, pCtl)

                Dim outPtr As IntPtr
                pCtl.QueryImpl(GetType(IUIX_List).GUID, Nothing, outPtr)
                Dim emailOptionsList As IUIX_List = CType(System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.GetObjectForIUnknown(outPtr), IUIX_List)
                emailOptionsList.RemoveItems(2, 1)
            End Sub
This This did not remove anything and you can still set it as default under Preferences window. I need it gone from Preferences window too as you can set it as default and then use it with a click, with no list. Any further thoughts or am i still doing something wrong?

Should I assign the new handler on event when 'Manage' command is activated or the picker clicked, because when i try to assign new handler where other custom buttons are created, then i get error that command is not found :(

Hello aurimas,

Well there is no other way of tweaking this unless removing the items from the list. The problem is that you don't know when you should remove that item. What can be done, is disabling the execution of the operation itself if the user clicks on Local in any window. If that works for you I can tell you how to do that.

Cheers,
Alex
