[Outlook/Sharepoint] VB connection help.
i'm trying to make a little program for here on the job,
unfortunatly i wasnt able to get it working as i wanted it too.
The goal is to make an application in VB that communicates with a SharePoint2007 server.
The application results in a Outlook Add-in button.
When clicking this button its the goal is that the email gets put in a task list (helpdesk tickets) on a SharePoint server.
For authentication it should use the windows login from the domain (can be filled in)
i'm kinda new to the while VB language, but learning on my way.
I'm searching for the last 4 days non stop to get solutions out of it,
but they wheren't that succesfull.
I dont want a fully written code to the solution, but just a little heads up, finger in the good direction.
what i found out:
There are several Microsoft.SharePoint libs to use,
External communications from a SharePoint is availible using SOAP xml calls,
but i dont get to work properly.
any idea's, fingers in the right directions, little code snippet headup would be rly thankfull.
