Hi,

Based on Chris Holmes idea 1 and code taken from Reference Implementation 2 of SCSF 2, I wrote the "Outlook Bar Workspace"

http://staff.southworks.net/blogs/matiaswoloski/archive/2006/05/01/OutlookBar.aspx

Features:
- Add any smartpart or control and use the OutlookSmartPartInfo to tell the workspace the icon and the text of the button
- Stack strip, Overflow strip and the splitter that will move items from the stack to the overflow area and viceversa
- The OutlookSmartPartInfo has an EventTopicName property. If it is filled, an event will be fired with the EventBroker API on button (stack or overflow) click.
- Office look n feel. The code uses ProffesionalColorTable. That means that in Windows 2003 it will look gray and in XP it will look blue (or the color of the theme applied)
- Source code provided!

Great Job! Is it possible to have OutlookBar Workspace to be a dockable outlook bar workspace?
