    Do you know how to send an email using Outlook? Does this email even have to be sent using Outlook, or would the user's default email client (whatever that may be) be a more appropriate option?

    That doesn't really answer my question. You've got three main choices when sending an email from a .NET app. They are, in increasing order of complexity:

    1. Call Process.Start and pass a mailto URL. That will open a new mail message in the default email client regardless of what that is. The user would then click Send in that client.

    2. Use the MailMessage and SmtpClient classes to send an email via a specific SMTP server. That will bypass an email client installed on the system.

    3. Use Office Automation to actually remote control an instance of the Outlook application.

    If you already know how to send the email then your question is simply how to get the email addresses out of the DataGridView. If I hadn't asked then we may have wasted our time explaining how to do something that you already know how to do. Please provide a FULL and CLEAR explanation of the actual problem so that we know what question we're supposed to be answering.

    Getting data from a specific column of a DataGridView is a simple matter of using a For or For Each loop. I'm sure that a web search would turn up a number of examples but it shouldn't be too hard to work out for yourself. You can use a loop to get access to each row and you can access a cell value inside the loop. I would suggest that you give it a go and then, if it doesn't work, post back and show us what you've done and we can help you fix it.

    Hi,

    picking up on JMC's..
    1. Call Process.Start and pass a mailto URL. That will open a new mail message in the default email client regardless of what that is. The user would then click Send in that client.
    depending on the Datagridview Cell
    Code:
    'in my Datagridview I have a column with the name "Email"
    
    Private Sub DataGridView1_DataBindingComplete(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewBindingCompleteEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.DataBindingComplete
            For Each r As DataGridViewRow In DataGridView1.Rows
                r.Cells("Email") = New DataGridViewLinkCell()
                Dim c As DataGridViewLinkCell = TryCast(r.Cells("Email"), DataGridViewLinkCell)
            Next
        End Sub
    
        Private Sub DataGridView1_CellContentClick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellContentClick
            If TypeOf DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(e.ColumnIndex) Is DataGridViewLinkCell Then
                Process.Start("mailto:" + DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(e.ColumnIndex).Value)
            End If
        End Sub
    regards

    You're trying to create a problem where there isn't one. An email address is just a String. Where that String comes from is completely irrelevant when it comes to using it. If you know how to send an email then you know how to send an email. You can write a method that takes a String as an argument and sends an email to the address in that String. That's exactly what you should do. That then encapsulates the sending of the email completely and you can call it and pass any String from any source. All you then have to do is get the email address from the grid and call the method.

    what I want is to send an email with this button to all the emails that their status is Not completed.

    Re: Sending Email through outlook to email in cell in datagrdiview

    Firstly, doing something when the user clicks a button in a row in a DataGridView is the same no matter what it is that you want to do. You can search for that independently of anything else.

    Secondly, getting a value from a cell in row of a DataGridView is the same regardless of what that data represents and what you want to do with it. You can search for that independently of anything else.

    Thirdly, you already know how to send an email so you don't even need to search for that but, if you did, you could do so independently of anything else.

    It is a classic beginners' mistake to insist on looking at a problem as a whole instead of looking at it as a series of parts that can be addressed independently and then their solutions combined. When someone wants to build a new cell phone, do they start from scratch and invent every component? Of course not. They use all that they already know, come up with solutions to the parts they don't and then put all the pieces together, massaging around the edges to make them fit, into a cohesive whole. That's exactly how you need to approach programming problems. As I have already said - and you have chosen to ignore - if you already know how to send an email then you can simply put that into a method and that part's done, e.g.
    vb.net Code:
    1. Private Sub SendEmail(address As String)
    2.     'Code here to send email to specified address.
    3. End Sub
    You say that you already know how to send an email so you already have the code to write in that method. That's the email part of your problem done and dusted so email is now irrelevant to the problem. You now have a method that has a parameter of type String and you need to get a String from a particular cell in a DataGridViewRow and pass it to that method, e.g.
    vb.net Code:
    1. Private Sub SendEmailToAddressInRow(row As DataGridViewRow)
    2.     Const addressColumnIndex As Integer = 1
    3.     Dim addressCell = row.Cell(addressColumnIndex)
    4.     Dim address = CStr(addressCell.Value)
    5.  
    6.     SendEmail(address)
    7. End Sub
    As you can see, that second method has nothing specifically to do with email. It's simply getting a value from a grid row and passing it to another method. You could have found out how to do that quite easily, although I would hope that you would already know.

    Now that you have sending the email and getting the required cell value covered, all that remains is how to react to the click of a button in a row and to pass that row to that second method. I'll leave that part - the part that didn't even rate a mention before post #11 - to you.

    By the way, you also mention that you only want to send the email if another cell contains a particular value. You already know how to get a value from a cell from my example code above. Testing the condition is simply an If statement. I'm assuming that you know how to write an If statement but, if you don't, that's also an easy one to learn. For that and other fundamentals, you might try here if you need to.

    If you want to learn then show us what you tried and tell us what happened, then we can tell you what's wrong with it and help you fix it. Learning is not about getting other people to write your code for you, particularly if you may well have most of it already done.

    this is what I have tried,

    Code:
    Imports outlook = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook
    
    
    Private Sub ToolStripButton2_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles ToolStripButton2.Click
            ' Get all rows where the status is 'Not completed'
            Dim TheList As Generic.List(Of DataGridViewRow) = (From R As DataGridViewRow In Me.DataGridView1.Rows Where R.Cells(2).Value = "Open" Select R).ToList
            ' Empty email.
            Dim OutlookMessage As outlook.MailItem
    
    
            ' Check if we have succeeded in getting any rows.
            If TheList IsNot Nothing Then
                ' Loop Through All The Rows in The List
                For Each Row As DataGridViewRow In TheList
                    ' Create a new email
                    OutlookMessage = New MailMessage()
                    ' Add the sender to the email
                    'OutlookMessage.From = New MailAddress("Sender@hotmail.com") NO NEED FOR FROM ADDRESS
                    ' Extract the email address from the row and add it to the email.
                    OutlookMessage.Recipients.Add(Row.Cells(9).Value)
                    ' Add a titel 
     OutlookMessage.Subject = $"Dear {Row.Cells(0).Value}"
                    ' Add the body
                    OutlookMessage.Body = "Dman man... Do you work and get your status to completed"
                    ' Send 
                    Client.Send(Msg)
                Next
            End If
        End Sub

    Re: Sending Email through outlook to email in cell in datagrdiview

    So when I said show us what you've done and tell us what happened, you decided that just showing us what you've done would be enough? You say that you want to learn but it doesn't necessarily seem like it.

    For a start, you said that you knew how to send a message using Outlook and I said that you should put that code that you already know works into a method and I showed you how to do that. You have chosen to ignore that. Why is that? I also showed you how write a method that takes a grid row and uses that existing method to send an email. All you would then have to do is call that second method from with the loop that you were given in post #13. You already have everything you need. You simply have to put the parts together but you're basically refusing to do that. You've got a loop that gets you the rows, you've got a method that gets the email address from a row and you've got (or should have) a method that sends an email. That is the whole solution right there.

    I already have helped. You just refuse to use the help provided and expect someone to write the code for you to copy and paste. I won't be doing that. You say you want to learn. You have that opportunity. I'll not be contributing any further.

    That's great and I applaud you. I'm more than happy to help further if you try to get it done but can't. I need to see people try though. The best way to learn is to do and I want people to learn, so I expect them to do. Failing is part of learning too though, so I don't hold failure to succeed against people, just failure to try. Of course, I'm not the king of programming or this forum, so you're free to ignore me if you want to.

            Dim OutlookMessage As outlook.MailItem
            Dim AppOutlook As New outlook.Application
            Try
                OutlookMessage = AppOutlook.CreateItem(outlook.OlItemType.olMailItem)
                Dim Recipents As outlook.Recipients = OutlookMessage.Recipients

                OutlookMessage.Body = "email body"
                OutlookMessage.BodyFormat = outlook.OlBodyFormat.olFormatHTML
                OutlookMessage.Send()
            Catch ex As Exception
                MessageBox.Show("Mail could not be sent") 'if you dont want this message, simply delete this line  
            Finally
                OutlookMessage = Nothing
                AppOutlook = Nothing
            End Try
        End Sub
    
        Private Sub SendEmailToAddressInRow(row As DataGridViewRow)
    
            Const addressColumnIndex As Integer = 1
    
            Dim addressCell = row.Cell(addressColumnIndex)
    
            Dim address = CStr(addressCell.Value)
            SendEmail(address)

    Re: Sending Email through outlook to email in cell in datagrdiview

    Hello vbuser99,

    What is the fault your getting with your code?
    I must admit, i have a hard time believing your just 11...


    Not sure if its you, but found vbuser99 at www.vbulletin.org who joined back in 2004, that would make it so that you started programming when you were -2

    seems you also joint xtremevbtalk back in 2008....

    Must admit you started waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay young!!!!

    well this just uses the Datagridview with the Email addresses in Cell(1)
    but be careful, if you have 200 Adresses with NC in Cell(2) = Not Complete
    it will create these 200 new Emails

    Code:
     Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
            Dim oMail = New System.Diagnostics.Process()
            With oMail.StartInfo
    
                'get the Emailaddresses out of the Datagridview 
                'in this case my Emailaddresses are in Cell(1)
    
                'in Cell(2) I put a Text = NC which means 'Not Complete'
    
                Dim MailList As Generic.List(Of DataGridViewRow) _
                = (From R As DataGridViewRow In Me.DataGridView1.Rows _
                   Where R.Cells(2).Value = "NC" Select R).ToList
    
                If MailList IsNot Nothing Then
                    For Each Row As DataGridViewRow In MailList
    
                        .FileName = "mailto:" & (Row.Cells(1).Value) & _
                        "?subject=Get the Job done&body=here your Emailbody text"
    
                        .UseShellExecute = True
                        .RedirectStandardOutput = False
                        oMail.Start()
                    Next
    
                End If
            End With

    Re: Sending Email through outlook to email in cell in datagrdiview

    This is my approach

    Code:
        Private Sub Btn_SendToEmail_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Btn_SendToEmail.Click
            Try
                Dim MailToString As String = Nothing
                For Each DGVRow As DataGridViewRow In DGV_People.Rows
                    If Convert.ToBoolean(DGVRow.Cells("Select").Value) = True Then 'this would be your "Completed" check
                        If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(DGVRow.Cells("Email").Value.ToString) Then 'make sure the email not NULL
                            MailToString &= DGVRow.Cells("Email").Value.ToString & ";"
                        End If
                    End If
                Next
                Dim Outlook As Outlook.Application
                Dim Mail As Outlook.MailItem
                Outlook = New Outlook.Application()
                Mail = CType(Outlook.CreateItem(Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.OlItemType.olMailItem), Outlook.MailItem)
                Mail.To = MailToString.Substring(0, MailToString.Length - 1)
                Mail.Display()
            Catch ex As Exception
                MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)
            End Try
        End Sub
    Easily modified to suite your needs.

    Re: Sending Email through outlook to email in cell in datagrdiview

    So you're now doing about half of what I suggested two days ago but ignoring several things that I've already told you several times. For one thing, I specifically said that that, in that SendEmail method, you should send the email to the address that gets passed in. You seem to have completely ignored that.

    Code removed as may contain sensitive information.

    See the problem there? You pass in an address to which you're supposed to be sending an email and then you just don't use it and use a hard-coded address instead.

    Secondly, I specifically said that you should use the loop provided in post #13 to get the rows and then, in that loop, call the SendEmailToAddressInRow method for the current row. Where are you doing that? You're not.

    If you have a conversation with someone then it's easy to forget some of what's said. There's no such excuse when it's all written down. You can read everything that has been written as often as you need to. Before doing anything else, I strongly suggest that you go back and read everything several times, then make an attempt to do what has been suggested.

    Having said all that, it's also worth noting that you are going to be sending a separate email to each address, rather than one email to all of them. I was going to mention that sooner but I noticed that you were using the person's name in the body, so that would require separate emails for each person. You should think a bit on which way you want to go. If you want one email to everyone then you'll need to change things slightly, but only slightly. Either way, I'd suggest getting this way working first. Just be sure not to send loads of emails to other people in the process, rather than using your own test addresses.
