Using WebDAV to send the customized Appointment Form in Calendar, the Form is lost.

i created a customized Appointment form, e.g.: Display P.2 Form, and add
attendees to the appointment, send it out.
the meeting attendees can open the Meeting with the customized form P.2.

But if I don't use outlook2003, I use VBScript & WebDAV to do this job, the
attendees can only open the standard Appointment Form, the customized form
P.2 disapears.

anyone meet the same problem?

Are you saying you want to embed the form like Outlook does when you check
send form definition with item checkbox? If so, this would be hard to do
with WebDAV. Eaiest thing is to make sure the folks on the other end have
your custom form and make your message use your custom form message class.

You may run into issues since many servers strip out extra properties, etc.
Plus, you would have to create your own TNEF for the message (Transport
Neutral Encapsulation Format) which is what Exchange uses to package up MAPI
stuff to send over to other servers.

Hi, Thanks for your reply!

What I mean is:

In Outlook2003 + Exchange Server, I can manually make an appointment/meeting
and send the meeting request to the meeting attendees, when the Meeting
attendees open the Meeting Form, they can see the customzied Form page
(e.g.: MyTestFormPage) besides the standard Form pages (Appointment,
Schedule);

While I use WebDAV to write program to do the same job above, I can make the
meeting and send meeting request to attendees, but the customized Form
page(e.g.:MyTestFormPage) cannot be sent out, the attendees can see only the
Standard Form pages(e.g.:Appointment, Schedule), but they cannot see the
Customized Form page(MyTestFormPage).

The customized Appointment Form is published to the ExchangeServer's
Organization Forms Library, everyone set his Outlook Calendar's Folder to
that customized Form.

Why cannot WebDAV do the same job as Outlook do?

Any help ????
can Microsoft add this features to Exchange WebDAV?

Lots of Thanks!!!
