Quick Tips

Attach Files from Interdev to Email Messages Easily

While this is not really an ASP tip, for those of you who use Visual Interdev and often find yourself needing to send files to others, it's a real time saver.

You probably already knew that you could associate files within Visual Interdev with different programs, but did you know that if you associate them with Outlook that it'll create a new email message with the selected file already attached? This makes the process of sending a file you're working on to someone via email as simple as can be. Best of all, it even works with remote files. Interdev will automatically get a local copy and send it without you having to download the file manually.

To set this up, simply right click on the file you want to send and select "Open With...". In the resulting dialog box click the "Add..." button. Enter the path to your copy of Outlook (on my machine it was C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OUTLOOK.EXE) and a Friendly Name that you'll recognize when you go to use it.

Back in the list of programs (which, in the future, you can get to by simply right clicking and selecting "Open With..."), click on the entry corresponding to the friendly name you just entered and a new email message should appear. You'll notice the new message has the selected file already attached and is just waiting for you to address it and send it on it's way.
