I am developing an plugin for ACT 2011 that is close to complete. I have a user control that will send an email to a contact as well as perform some other functions once a button is clicked. I have the email working, but I cannot figure out how to add an attachment to the email.
I am using the following VB code to create an send the email. When attachments is set to null the email sends, just without any attachments. I know that the last variable needs to be set to a StringCollection based on the code reference, but I am getting an "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" error when I try and send this email.
Dim attachments As StringCollection attachments.Add("C:\test.jpg") HostApplication.UIEmailManager.SendEmailToContact(Me.HostApplication.ApplicationState.CurrentContact, message, subject, Act.Framework.Preferences.Enums.EmailCreateHistoryType.SubjectAndMessage, False, False, attachments)
Any ideas how to add an attachment to an email this way? I know it can be done I just do not know what to set the string collection to in order to get ACT to find and attahch the image.
